If you work in an office then you spend a LOT of your day staring at your computer screen. It’s like a love affair where you just can’t take your eyes away (okay maybe not!).  I find all that staring makes my eyes tired and strained by the end of the day. The solution? You could stop working! That might solve this one issue but for most of us, that’s not going to happen.  A better solution has been created by Samsung Canada. They took their awesome LED curved technology from their televisions and created similarly amazing computer monitors that you will want to stare at all day long.


Best Buy is going to give one lucky person the chance to experience one of these amazing monitors for themselves.  They will find out just how great working on a computer can be. Samsung’s new line of curved LED monitors work with the natural curvature of your eye to make the viewing experience easier and create less strain on your eyes and neck. With Flicker Free technology and Eye Saver Mode (which limits the amount of blue light wavelengths), these monitors seriously help reduce eye fatigue and make your work day much more comfortable.

The monitors’ unique design gives an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio allowing you to have tons of windows open at once which makes multi-tasking a breeze. With the picture-in-picture feature, you can stream your favourite movie or TV show on the same monitor as you work! So when the next sporting event falls in the middle of the day you don’t have to book an extra long lunch—you can just watch it at your desk AND get your work done.

Combine all of that with a 3440 x 1400 resolution which makes the images on your screen some of the crispest you’ve ever seen. So when you take that quick mid-day gaming break eliminating alien invaders or battling the evil Empire, you will literally feel like you’re inside the game (I’m not the only one who does this am I? Let’s hope my boss does not see this article). It’s like having a mini theatre screen at your desk!

Enter this contest and you may win a Samsung 34 inch widescreen curved LED monitor.  After you win, the next thing you’ll need at your desk is a snuggy and a fridge and you’re pretty much set.

How to Enter:

First, make sure you follow @BestBuyCanada on Twitter. Then on December 4th, Best Buy Canada will Tweet 4 questions related to the Samsung 34″ Widescreen WQHD Curved LED Monitor with a video embedded within the Tweet. Watch the video and tweet your answer to the questions to @BestBuyCanada including the hashtag #SeetheDifference. You can answer each question once for a max number of 4 entries into the contest! 

What you can Win:

One correct twitter response will be randomly chosen from all eligible entries.  That winner will receive a Samsung 34″ Widescreen WQHD Curved LED Monitor valued at $1,299.99.

The contest runs from December 4th until December 7th.

Remember that comments here on the blog are always welcome, but to qualify for the contest you must submit answers on twitter.

Good Luck!

I've spent the last two years managing Best Buy's social media accounts but in December 2013 I joined the exciting and scary world of parenting. During my pregnancy I learned that having a baby is more than just giving up your body, your casual drinking career and your ability to stay up past midnight. It's also about having to make actual grown up decisions!
