The Design

The Samsung C27FG73 is very aesthetic in design and has a beautiful black matte finish to the display. The monitor is 27-inches in size, which gives you more than enough screen real estate to work on multiple projects at the same time.

In addition, the monitor has a wide curved design to it about, 1800R in curvature. The curved design is excellent if you want to get an immersive experience with the display.

Furthermore, the stand is elegant by design and is ergonomic as well. You’ll be able to tilt, swivel, pivot and rotate the monitor for your viewing conveniences.

And you’ll also be able to do portrait mode as well. However, it may be a bit odd due to the curvature of the display’s design.

The architect of the stand itself has a V-shaped base, which will serve as an excellent foundation because it’ll prevent the display from wobbling nor moving around.

But in case if you’re not satisfied with the stock stand, you’ll be able to attach a 100mmx100mm VESA mount on the back of the panel as well.

Also, if you’re thinking about mounting the C27FG73 onto a wall, you can. Thanks to the display’s wall mount that you can attach to the rear of the panel, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite films and enjoy a few console gaming sessions.

Additionally, the I/O panels are located in the back of the monitor, which consists of two HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort 1.2, and an audio jack (3.5mm). The monitor itself has a great cable managing system, so installing the cables and managing them will be easy, just plugin and start running the display.

You’ll have 2 HDMI ports running at 120Hz, and one DisplayPort running at 144Hz. So to run the monitor to a max of 144Hz, you’ll need to use the DisplayPort.

You’ll also get one HDMI cable and one DisplayPort as well, which is included with the monitor.

However, if you’re thinking about plugging in a USB device to the monitor, you won’t be able to because the C27FG73 doesn’t have a USB port to connect to.

Aside from the I/O panels, you’ll be able to locate the OSD panel which uses a joystick for you to reconfigure the settings in there. The joystick is very much convenient since it’s easy to control and user-friendly when navigating through the options.

Unfortunately, the C27FG73 doesn’t have built-in speakers. However, that shouldn’t be any problem because the monitor solely focuses and emphasizes on image quality and color depth. But you’re always better off with a set of dedicated speakers and headphones down the road.

Performance and Features

The Samsung C27FG73 has a 27-inch display, which runs in a resolution of 1920×1080 FHD, and has a 1800R curvature design. The screen will give you more than enough screen real estate to do extra projects and have multiple windows open at the same time.

However, this monitor doesn’t run on HDR and is considered a QLED Full HD panel since the C27FG73 was out before HDR was fully functional.

Considering the C27FG73 is a VA panel, this display runs a 144Hz refresh rate and has a 1ms response time (MPRT), which is fantastic for a VA display.

And also, the color depth and image clarity is excellent and is equivalent to the quality and vibrancy of an IPS panel.

Additionally, Samsung has developed a rapid response time of 1ms (MPRT), which reduces motion blur during fast-paced action scenes. And this is awesome because your gameplay experience won’t be compromised.

Furthermore having a quick response time is great if you’re a competitive gamer as well because you’ll gain a slight edge when it comes down to competing and owning your opponents.

Also, you’ll be able to use G-SYNC and FreeSync as well if you happen to own an Nvidia or an AMD graphics card. If you do own an Nvidia GPU, then you’ll have to download the current drivers from the Nvidia website to fully use the full sync capabilities and features.

Once G-SYNC/FreeSync is on, you’ll be able to game to a whole new level because gameplay will be a lot smoother and will have much more buttery-like graphics which eliminates ghosting and screen tearing altogether.

Thanks to its contrast ratio of 3000:1 and a 125% sRGB, you’ll be able to see the richest blacks and brilliant whites in different settings, which adds excellent quality to the images.

The Pros

  • Bright and rich in color depth and vibrancy
  • Excellent OSD options and user-friendly, it’s easy to set up which includes three preset options for you as well

The Cons

  • The stand may be a bit too big and you’ll need extra spacing for your keyboard. Not as stabled, however, it has an excellent ergonomic design. You can always opt for a VESA mount down the road.

In Conclusion

The Samsung C27FG73 is an excellent monitor to have if you’re a gamer. Thanks to its fast 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time, you’ll be able to have a slight advantage over your opponents. Hopefully, this Samsung C27FG73 has helped you make a good choice.

Considering that the C27FG73 is a VA panel, you’ll get the best of both worlds of image quality and speed.

If you’re looking for a budgeted monitor with quality and performance, then the C27FG73 would be an ideal choice.
