Easy on the Eyes The Ultra-Wide Curved Monitor with Thunderbolt 3 for Business by Samsung By Thomas Bender For many of us, a computer monitor is the one thing that we spend the most time looking at day in and day out. Whether it’s at work or at home, coding or painting, day or night, the amount of time spent interacting with computer monitors seems endless, so it’s worth investing in a good one. Enter the 34-inch CJ791 Ultra-Wide Curved Monitor with Thunderbolt 3 from Samsung. This ultra-wide monitor is packed with some of the best display technology available, alongside the power of USB-C and Thunderbolt 3. Samsung, known for its phones and TVs, has injected its tried and true technology to create one of the most productive monitors that money can buy. It easily replaces a dual monitor setup, eliminates a ton of cords, all while providing WQHD resolution and added versatility. Samsung likes to call it a ‘horizontal technology,’ and it truly is an easy win for everyone. As the name suggests, this monitor is a curved panel, and yes, it is indeed ultra-wide. Thirty-four inches may seem like overkill, but it is similar in size to a lot of dual-monitor setups. It provides a ton of screen real estate, and makes it much more manageable than piecing together separate monitors. There are very small bezels on the top and two sides, wasting less space and making the monitor look even more amazing in the process—it also helps ease the feeling of being behind a wall of monitors. After too many years adopting dual monitor displays, the world is finally picking up on a single ultra-wide solution. Whether taking advantage of the entire display to view a large spreadsheet, or using two windows side-by-side for added efficiency, this monitor quickly proves itself with increases in productivity. If your operating system’s built-in tools for managing multiple windows falls short, Samsung also includes software to easily split your screen and even utilize a picture-in-picture format (which may actually, umm, decrease productivity when abused). So Samsung has crammed the strengths of two monitors into a single device, and even improved upon it. No more bezels in the middle of your work surface, no more
