Even the smallest of changes can impact the overall experience, sometimes resulting in differences that some users probably wouldn’t immediately notice. As number 5 on the Best 27 Inch Monitor buying guide, the Samsung LC27F398FWNXZA / Samsung C27F398 has been assembled with components that, while can also be viewed as stylistic choices, can make a bigger difference than people think.

Design

The 27 inch curved screen promotes immersive viewing and helps avoid eye strain. If by chance the user ever finds a bad angle, the slim design and hunched stand makes it effortless to find another good viewing angle. Speaking of effortless, the monitor weighs only 9 Lbs., being lighter than the BenQ GL2760H. However, the stand can’t be adjusted to affect the screen’s height and, unlike the ViewSonic VA2759, there are no built-in speakers.

Value

The FreeSync feature would noticeably contribute to the overall price, though VA panels aren’t the cheapest panels compared to panels such as the TN panel, they’re usually less expensive than IPS panels. Both FreeSync and the VA panel make this monitor capable of being used for gaming. However, there are cheaper alternatives that have similar specifications and features to the Samsung LC27F398FWNXZA, some of which also use FreeSync or even FreeSync 2.
