First Impressions

Samsung C24F390 is a beautiful monitor that features gorgeous curves and slim lines. I was instantly sold on how amazing this monitor looks with its glossy frame and a thin bezel. As soon as the package arrived, I was ready to set it up and get started with my new Samsung experience. It was fairly easy to do the initial setup. In no time, I was having my first Samsung C24F390 experience. As soon as I switched it on, I was awestruck by the clean and crisp picture quality. The difference was striking to me as this was a serious upgrade from my old monitor.

I bought Samsung C24F390 for my home office and so far it has been really great at being my trustworthy work partner. Of course, I also use it for entertainment and gaming also and I can say that Samsung C24F390 offers a truly immersive experience during gaming sessions. It is an absolute winner if you want to spend the evening binge-watching your favorite shows on Netflix.

Thanks to Samsung’s special Eye Saver Technology, I don’t experience eye fatigue despite long hours in front of the computer. Previously, I was experiencing a lot of eye strain with my old monitor. However, I must mention that while the curvature is excellent for home theater viewing and gaming, it’s not suitable for doing serious graphic designing or photo editing work. If you need to stare intently at straight lines on images, then the curvature (of this monitor or any other curved monitor) might become a slight hindrance to the task at hand. However, if like me, most of your work requires working on spreadsheets and other text documents, then this monitor will work very well for you.

Also, the stand that came with it was pretty basic. It can’t be adjusted for height, nor can you swivel it sideways. You have to move the entire unit. It does, however, tilt up and down with ease. If possible, I would suggest using the VESA mounting interface to get the best viewing angle for yourself.

It could be a little disappointing to some people that the Samsung C24F390 does not feature an IPS panel because they tend to perform better in terms of image quality. Also, if you want a truly immersive surround sound experience while watching movies or gaming, then you are better off buying a high-quality speaker and attaching it to your monitor.

Display Quality

I personally feel that Samsung C24F390 offers an outstanding immersive experience compared to other rivals at this price point. Of course, you can’t expect to have the kind of immersive experience you’ll get from a 40” screen but what you do get with this monitor is pretty mind blowing.

I would recommend matching your video game, operating system and movie software settings to match the monitor’s resolution. I did this and it has made a lot of difference to my experience.

The color range and color quality offered by the monitor are excellent and probably amongst the best in this price range. The vertical and horizontal viewing angles provide outstanding image quality. The excellent refresh rate ensures that there are minimal tearing and stutter during marathon gaming sessions.

Excellent Viewing Comfort

The Samsung C24F390 monitor, which is a part of the Samsung CF390 monitor series, offers enhanced viewing comfort thanks to the deep curvature of the screen which allows the eyes to track images effortlessly across the screen without having to change the eye’s focus. To add to this, the Eye Saver Mode is an absolute game changer. It’s controlled blue light emission technology works like a charm to reduce eye strain and fatigue. Additionally, Samsung’s Flicker Free technology further enhances the comfortable viewing experience by minimizing screen flicker. If you are someone who spends a lot of time in front of the computer or is simply addicted to video games, then this monitor is likely the perfect one for you.

Superior Image Quality

The Samsung C24F390 boasts an outstanding best-in-class contrast ratio of 3000:1. This means that you get a crystal clear viewing experience even during the darkest of scenes. The curved display also ensures that there’s minimal light leakage from the screen’s edges.

Slim and Stylish Design

The super slim curved panel of the C24F390 lends it a sleek and very aesthetically pleasing profile. In fact, the C24F390’s curved panel is nearly two times as thin as that of other Samsung monitors. The rounded base further adds to the modern look and feel. So far, this is the best-looking monitor I have possessed.


There’s one HDMI and one VGA port available – not so great if you want to connect more than just your PC to the monitor. There’s also a socket for connecting your headphones.


If you are looking for a stylish monitor that performs well and is loaded with great features, then the C24F390 is an excellent choice for you. If you often suffer from eye fatigue and spend long hours in front of the computer, then this monitor has certainly been made for you. The VA panel delivers excellent image quality and you really won’t have any issues with image tearing or stutter. Also, since the Samsung brand name stands for quality, you can rest assured that this is a product that will serve you well in both the long and short-term.


My favorite thing about this monitor is certainly the stylish design. It looks so elegant that I am proud of displaying it on my desk. The fact that the Samsung C24F390 is a total winner when it comes to performance and image quality, makes it an absolute winner for me. I am really happy with my purchase and I hope my Samsung C24F390 review will help you make the right decision for yourself also.

The Samsung C24F390 is an all-round VA monitor with a lot to offer for under 200 USD. It’s great if you prefer deeper blacks and superior contrast ratios, but there can be some side effects of VA panels as well. The curved display adds a more immersive feeling into the mix, which is great.
