Defining the Modern Desktop Computing Experience

Smartphones and Tablets may be the hot gadgets of the moment but most people still use desktop computers for the majority of their work.

At Lini PC we create desktop computers that pack professional grade performance into sleek and stylish enclosures that enhance the aesthetics of your working space.

One of the greatest benefits of PCs is the open nature of the platform which allows many different manufacturers to offer their own versions of components that build on their own unique technologies and visions.

Samsung is arguably the most sophisticated electronics manufacturer in the world now.

The LS34E790CNS 34" curved ultra-wide screen monitor is the latest ground breaking display from Samsung and a perfect complement for the Lini 1SC and Lini 1S.

 

 

 

34" Ultra-Wide Curved Screen

The 34" ultra-wide curved screen on the Samsung LS34E790CNS captures the eye and the imagination. While the curvature of the screen is subtle it does make a significant addition to the overall viewing experience.

The monitor supports a resolution of 3440x1440 and has 2 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort input. The monitor also integrates a 4 port USB 3.0 hub.

Working with the ultra-wide 21:9 format is an enjoyable experience.

The only downside I found to the LS34E790CNS is that it does not provide a simple mechanism for organizing windows into 3 columns.

With a monitor this wide I would prefer to have my primary working window centered with two ancillary windows on the side but in Windows 10 and Xubuntu 15.10 the built in window management facilities only allow snapping windows to 4 quadrants.

Even without easy support for 3 column window arrangements many users will probably use the screen real estate to organize windows within a single app like Photoshop, Premier, or an IDE. In this case the organization of the screen can be customized by the facilities provided by the application.

 

3440x1440 Ultra-Wide vs. 3840x2160 UHD 4K

I have been working with a 28" 3840x2160 UHD monitor for about a year and I find it vastly preferable and more productive than working with a 1080P monitor.

I have worked with dual 4:3 monitors in the past but working with dual 16:9 monitors seems uncomfortable even when they are relatively small because they are simply to wide. I haven't tried it, but working with dual 27" QHD monitors seems like it would not be practical at all.

The 21:9 3440x1440 format is seemingly a perfect middle ground, giving you the vertical resolution of QHD with the horizontal resolution of two 1600x1200 4:3 monitors.

While 3840x2160 at 28" leaves text a bit on the small size the balance of screen size and resolution on the LS34E790CNS is just about perfect.

 

Conclusion

The Samsung LS34E790CNS is a beautiful monitor with a stunning design that will bring new life to your working space.

After working with a 28" UHD monitor for a year I am seriously considering trading it in for the 34" 21:9 ultra-wide format which for my tastes offers a more ideal balance of screen size and resolution.

Samsung has just lowered the retail price on the LS34E790CNS from $999 to $699 so now is a great time to buy.
