Absolute bargain with two year warranty with probably the same panel as Samsung's £750 32:9 equivalent.

Also avaliable is a non QLED version for slightly less but I think this is worth the extra £60

Equivalent to two Full HD 27 inch monitors next to each other without a bezel.

Screen Size (diagonal) 49in
Maximum resolution 3840 x 1080
Aspect Ratio 32:9
Panel type QLED VA
Refresh Rate 144Hz

I'm open to being wrong, but what is the use case for this


Gives the width of multiple monitors without the bezel getting in the way I guess.

Vegito02/07/2019 21:22

Its the equivalent of having 3 1080p monitors sude by side


I think it's actually 2 27" 1080p monitors side by side.

Full HD QLED?
Sorry I think this is a terrible monitor, 1080p on a 49 inch tv
Great price was just looking at these, there's a seller on ebay with the same price so would make an even better buy with 15% codes when they come, though I worry these might have poor bin panels say with stuck or dead pixels that didn't make the cut with Samsung, also 8 ms g2g response time seems a bit high these days.

If anyone buys one of these can you please come back with a user review.

You miss the point, its 3840 x 1080, so equivalent to two Full HD 27 inch monitors next to each other without a bezel.

Yeah exactly, 2 27 inch 1080p monitors won't cost 560 quid

A 512GB micro-SD card costs around £100. 2 256GB can be had for just over £50. It's just the way it works.

I think 2 x 27 inch monitor capable of 144 hz will cost close enough to this, likely around the 450 mark or so, but the immersion of not having that bezel is worth much much more than the reminder in my opinion

A pair of 144hz Samsung QLEDs will run you roughly the same price, not to mention many would pay extra for no bezel.

Here's a 1080p 27 inch IPS monitor for 120 quid.

2 of them coats 240.

You are paying £400 premium to remove your bezel. Those 2 monitors barely have any bezel, and is a nicer IPS panel.

Yes but those are not capable of 144hz so it's like comparing apples to oranges.

Personaly I couldn't imagine playing any game with a bezel right in the middle it would destroy all immersion so to me it's worth at least 200 pounds no having the bezel

Sorry guys I didn't read the OP and didn't notice it was 144hz, just ignore me please, sorry
LCD technology stagnated 10 years ago.
The defining feature of any gaming display is the overdrive quality. This is extremely important for VA displays due to the absolutely dire pixel response times as standard. There's a reason 99% of VA gaming monitors are considering a blurring mess and only 1 (the LG 32") comes remotely close to usable.
Electriq may use the same panels but the electronics controlling it are what you're paying for with other brands.

I have a Aoc 35 inch 160 hz 2560 x1080 va panel and it is a really great monitor for gaming as well as office and browsing, haven't noticed any ghosting and pixel density is no where near a big a problem as it looks on paper. It's only an issue if your really picky and concentrate on finding looking for the flaws. Of course can't speak for this or other monitors with va panels.

I'm currently looking at something like this as a replacement as I find 35 in not quite big enough.

Yeah you have missed the point entirely. This specific monitor is aimed at PC gamers wanting ultra wide as it has a very high refresh rate so gaming is smoother, two screens is no use at all in that scenario.

Gaming monitors are expensive though, and you are paying a premium for ultra-wide, the Acer equivalent is about £800, so this is cheap.

Yeah sure, great idea!

What's your address, full name, DOB and your mothers maiden name pal?

I’ve got the BenQ XR3501 ultrawide 2560x1080 (effectively 1.5x 1080p, where this is 2x 1080p) @ 144hz and it IS pretty great. However, if I could go back, I’d go for at least 1440p. On a screen this size, the pixel density isn’t great. Not terrible by any means, but the sharpness of a 1440p screen of the same size is VERY noticeable by comparison.
