Product Snapshot

Overview

The HP 34F is a top-tier release from 2019 that offers crisp quad HD details courtesy of its Ultra Wide 2560 x 1440p resolution. The display pledges to deliver accurate color thanks to its broad coverage of the sRGB color space, making it an ideal option for users who would want to engage in color-critical work.

It also boasts a super quick 1ms response time that is faster than the 4ms promised by the Samsung LC34J791WTNXA and a borderless design that allows for a multi-monitor setup.

The monitor’s curved screen provides an immersive experience, and with excellent viewing angles, the screen remains a top pick for users who want to have a shared working space.

Get to the end of this HP 34F curved monitor review to find out whether or not the display can rank among the top computer monitors around.
