Titan Army C29SH is a DAG-based gaming platform that has been designed from the ground up to offer players a unique experience.
Titan Army is a brand I had never heard of until our friends at Laptop Sensei gave us a monitor to test. They’re a subsidiary of a Chinese display business targeted at Internet cafés, according to additional investigation. We received the Titan Army C29SH Curved Display and put it through its paces.
On paper, its specifications seem good, and the pricing is unquestionably competitive. At first look, it seems to be a 29-inch curved gaming monitor with a Refresh rate of 200Hz and a resolution of 2560×1080 with HDR400 support.
The C29SH has a 29-inch display with 1800R curvature and minimal bezels, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in whatever game you’re playing. Because it simply tilts up and down and has no height adjustment, the stand may be its weakest point. The monitor is about 70cm broad, so it should fit on normal 120cm tables, and the feet are approximately 20cm from back to front.
Three HDMI ports, one DisplayPort port, a power port, and an audio out are provided. The port locations beneath the monitor are a little difficult to access for me. Also, I’m not sure what version of HDMI/DP this monitor supports.
The buttons are located on the bottom of the display, which makes them a little difficult to push. Simply click a button to bring up the appropriate function on the display.
The Titan Army C29SH has a vulnerability in the form of the stand. It has a set height and is quite thin. However, it comes with a VESA adaptor, so purchase a monitor arm for greater mobility. We apologize for not being able to get the VESA adaptor when Laptop Sensei gave us the device for evaluation.
When I initially put up the Titan Army C29SH, the first thing I noticed was that it was set too low. If you don’t intend on purchasing a monitor arm, you may need to get a monitor riser simply to bring this up to eye level. Stacking books can suffice if you’re on a limited budget. The 1800R curve and 29” size are excellent after I brought it to eye level. Without having to move my head too much, I can see the periphery well.
The Titan Army C29SH has a resolution of 2560×1080. It’s not exactly two 1080p displays stacked on top of each other. The effect is similar to that of a 1080p display with expanded sides. However, the additional pixels on both sides are a nice bonus. It provides the C29SH a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is the standard for most movies. There are no black bars above or below the screen in a movie trailer with a 21:9 aspect ratio, as you can see.
There are lots of games that offer 25601080 widescreen resolution, so it’s equally as engaging while gaming. With the Titan Army C29SH, racing and shooting games are a delight, particularly with the 200Hz refresh rate; fast-paced games are tear-free, provided that you can run them at 200+ frames per second.
Titan Army utilizes VA panels for its displays, according to additional study. The contrast and viewing angles of VA panels are well-known. That’s why, even with the curved display, there are no color distortions. The disadvantage of VA panels is that they have lengthy reaction times, although the quicker refresh rates compensate for this.
Unless calibrated with a tool like Spyder, the Titan Army C29SH does not have correct colors, but games look fine on it. The panel offers sRGB coverage of 99 percent, Adobe coverage of 82 percent, and NTSC coverage of approximately 85 percent, making content consumption a joy. Even if your computer isn’t strong enough to run your favorite games at 200 frames per second or higher, you can still enjoy tear-free gaming with Adaptive Sync, which is now available for AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
The Titan Army C29SH also includes a PIP and PBP function that shows two inputs at the same time. First, let’s speak about the PIP. When you enable PIP, you’ll see a little window with any display input you choose. You may put it in any of the four corners and change the size as needed. You can’t use your mouse or keyboard to set it up since it’s all done on the monitor’s software. This is especially helpful if you’re running two systems and need to keep track of one of them.
The PBP display feature comes next. I’m not sure whether there’s a setting anywhere, but it reads both inputs at full resolution for some reason. What exactly is the issue here? You only have one monitor with a resolution of 25601080 pixels processing two screens with the same resolution. As a consequence, the picture below appears.
It squishes the display to accommodate everything on one screen, giving it a distorted appearance. I tried changing the resolution on both computers to 12801080, which is meant to be the resolution of half of the Titan Army C29SH’s screen, but it still interprets the input as 25601080 and doesn’t extend the screen to the borders, instead scaling the screen to 12801080 INSIDE the 25601080 section. I tried another monitor with this function, but it had a resolution of 38401080, which is equivalent to two 1080p displays side by side, thus scaling was not an issue. I’ll update this post if anybody from Titan Army or anyone else can point out the issue, since I’ve looked through the settings and can’t seem to find a solution.
If you’re looking for a curved gaming monitor, the Titan Army C29SH is a good option. It has a 200Hz refresh rate and a 2560×1080 resolution that is quite easy to drive, and it costs less than most popular monitors on the market today. The size is ideal for gaming and movie viewing, and the colors are vibrant right out of the box.
If you buy this, you need also purchase a monitor arm since it has limited mobility and may be difficult to position at eye level. Fortunately, when you buy from Laptop Sensei, they will include the VESA mount. With all of its bells and whistles, this is a great deal for $15,000!
