Samsung C24FG70 review: Samsung's gaming monitor comeback

Remarkable monitor convinces with its colour quality


Viewing angles

The new viewing angle measurements are a lot more detailed than before. Aside from the reduction in brightness we also measure the colour deviation. The standard deviation is shown once again. This is based on the sub-measurements of the base- and support colours, plus 100% and 75% white. If the standard deviation is low, the brightness of all colours is reduced in the same manner. Unfortunately we have not tested enough monitors to be able to put these values into perspective, which is why we show the information here without linking it to a conclusion.

Because this test is performed differently than the test we used to do, these results are not comparable with those of the older test method. For this test we measure at a brightness of 150 cd/m² instead of using the maximum brightness, and the distance between the device and the screen is different.

For now, the viewing angles seem to be a weakness of the Samsung C24FG70. We repeated the measurements a few times because the results do not seem to reflect with what we see in practice, but we cannot find any other explanation other than that our measurements are correct. There is a relatively fast loss of brightness and a relatively high colour deviation – although this is not as visible in practice as the tests seem to indicate. Nevertheless it performs better than average when you are seated directly in front of it.
