MicroBoard M340CLZ 34" 3440 x 1440 100hz Review - Page 6

Edit:

Lol. It isnt the same panel. It is different to the Samsung. Compare 1800R to 1500R. 8 vs. 4 ms GTG.

Maybe the microboard using a old previous Samsung panel which is overclocked... .

The truth probably is:

the M340CLZ indeed uses samsung panels, probably the revision 3 (1st samsung UW used revision 1).

CF791 is supposed to use revision 4.

Revision 3 was probably flawed and samsung sold them cheaply to Microboard that made an UW out of them.

This explains the price, and also makes one wonder about the possible issues with this panel.

Samsung never released it, so it was probably imperfect in some way.

What's wrong that you want to return it?

@Astreon You are also ruling out the possibility that:

-some components are no longer produced
-a component's price isn't scaling well enough with quantity for mass production.

There are so many unknown variables. I think its an old firmware overclocked panel of the 3rd generation.

The problem is not only the blb and the maybe existent edge led back light. I fear a 8 ms gtg reaction time and disturbing ghosting as an issue of the old panes too.

You "safe" only ~150 Euros (paypal exchange fee isn't included) compared to the new Samsung monitor with full 2 years manufacturer warranty (with instant swap in case of defect) and 2 years implied warranty of your seller.

The only downside of the Samsung is, you have to wait 1 - 3 weeks until it's available in Europe.

But the South Korean seller needs also 12 days for delivery, so it's no a real disadvantage.

The seller increased the price by 50 Euros. So you will "save" only ~100 Euros against the Samsung C34F791 sold in your country.

The South Korean Seller isnt very reputable. I ask for the new Samsung and he told me they need up to 15 business days to make the monitor ready for shipping biggrin.gif. The shipping itself needs 3 - 5 business days (customs process is not included) in addition. The monitor is right now available in South Korea... . So it's a real April Fool.

I have lost my trust into this seller.

Samsung is using this same Rev 3 in their 24" and 27" models. Only the CF791 is Rev 4.

If there was a problem with Rev 3, Samsung wouldn't be using them for their brand new 24" and 27" line of monitors.

But I agree the Rev 3 boards Microboard is using for these monitors are most likely ones that didn't past muster with Samsung and sold to Microboard cheap.

While the exchange rate to Europe is high, if you are in the US, you are saving $350 over the CF791 and get free Expedited UPS shipping so these monitors are really only a deal for those in the US.

The second problem, which makes the price very uncomely for Europe citizens, is that you have to pay usually 19 -2X % VAT. The US has a free trade agreement with South Korea, which means for this monitor no VAT.

Man, this threshold is really turning into a waste dump of wild guesses and negative speculations -- version 3, version 4...sold cheaply to Microboard...what? huh?

Fact 1: CF791 uses the VA panel with the quantum dot marquee, 1500R

Fact 2: This monitor, on the other hand, has the same VA panel as other Samsung 16:9 gaming monitors - 1800R

And samsung as the OEM for the panel here apply the same QA process during manufacturing, so there's no case where panels failed to pass the QA assurance test are marketed to lower tier brands as an outlet -- or else this monitor wouldn't have been able to OC to 100hz -- which is the key factor differentiating between the so call "good" panels and "bad ones.

Lastly, price differences between this and other 3440x1440x100hz ultrawides have very little relevance to perceived quality when you're talking about 2nd tier Asian brands here -- they create their own niche in the market through low price and tiny profit margin (where as Samsung is likely overcharging consumers by $100-$200 with the CF791 --- the same "luxury tax" you pay with Apple product). Much like Huawei or Oneplus in the cellphone market -- top grade components with low prices.

Anyways, I'm interested in seeing more video/photo/test results from those of you that have purchased this monitor; to those of you not interested, please don't flood this thread with your pointless speculations -- nobody is forcing you to buy it after all, if you think it sucks, just ignore it. (6-page thread, with perhaps only 5 posts providing any validated/useful info on the monitor)

The new Samsung 16:9 gaming panels have only 1080p and quantum dot btw. They are not comparable with the panel of the microboard monitor wink.gif .
