Update: The monitor is now available on Amazon.
The Samsung C43J890 is essentially a smaller 43″ version of the 49″ Samsung C49J890.
However, it will provide you with a higher screen resolution and pixel density due to its different aspect ratio of 32:10 as opposed to the 32:9 format of standard 49″ super ultra-wide displays.
Other features include a rapid 120Hz refresh rate, a high-contrast VA panel, and an extensive connectivity and ergonomic options.
Based on a VA panel, the Samsung C43J89 boasts a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 which will ensure true black colors. The panel also offers a standard peak luminance of 300-nits, wide 178-degree viewing angles, 8-bit color depth covering the standard sRGB gamut, and finally, a 5ms response time speed.
The 3840×1200 resolution provides a pixel density of roughly 93 PPI (Pixels Per Inch) on the 43-inch screen of the Samsung C43J89 monitor. The same pixel density can be found on a 24″ 16:10 1920×1200 monitor.
In fact, the Samsung C43J89 is basically two 24″ 1920×1200 monitors put next to each other, just without the bezel in-between which makes it a practical replacement for dual-monitor setups.
Furthermore, using the Picture By Picture mode, you can simultaneously connect a PC and a laptop, for example, to the monitor and have half the image for each device.
The Samsung C43J89 also features a built-in KVM switch, so you would be able to use just one set of keyboard and mouse to control both devices on-screen.
Unfortunately for AMD users, the monitor doesn’t support FreeSync. But thanks to its refresh rate of 120Hz, you will be able to enjoy an immersive and responsive gameplay.
Design & Connectivity
The Samsung C43J89 120Hz monitor offers rich connectivity options including an HDMI 2.0, a DisplayPort 1.2, a dual USB 3.0 hub, two USB type C ports, and two audio jacks – one for the headphones and the other for the 5W integrated speakers.
Moving on to the ergonomics, you can elevate the screen up to 120mm, tilt it by -2/17 degrees, swivel to the left and right by 15 degrees, and finally, VESA mount it using the 100 x 100mm pattern at the back of the monitor.
The monitor also features an aggressive 1800R curvature which along with the super ultra-wide screen wraps your peripheral vision to make the viewing experience more immersive and intense.
Price & Similar Monitors
The Samsung C43J89 price amounts to $900 MSRP which is a bit much, but we expect the price to drop fairly soon.
If you are looking for a similar monitor, check out the Samsung CHG90 which sports a bigger screen and premium features such as HDR, 144Hz, FreeSync 2, quantum-dots, and more.
