    Yes I prefer va I cannot stand the poor blacks and Ips glow

    but va panels have got their downsides too but id take the va downsides than the ips ones

    I got this monitor and I confirmed something. At 165hz the color depth is reduced to 8bpc but with refresh rate set at 144 you get 10bpc that helps with color reproduction, banding and gradients. Probably there is not enough bandwitch to have 165Hz and 10bpc at the same time in this monitor but overall is good enough.
    And the other thing that need to be consider as nvidia user of a 3080 you can't have hdr and gsync activated at the same time, with amd I supposed you are not going to have that problem. (edited)

Assuming the Samsung but not actually sure on the IPS vs VA debates.Samsung Odyssey G5 LC34G55TWWRXXU 34" 1000R Curved Gaming Monitor - 165Hz, 1ms, 1440p WQHD - £339 @ Amazon - hotukdealsSamsung is available for the same price on eBay so still valid but different seller.




    It isn't just the VA Vs IPS differences but also the HP is a flat panel display and the Samsung has a 1000r rated curve - one of the most curved of curved monitors you can buy.
    Personal preferences and choice will factor a lot in your decision, no absolutes in terms of which is better.

    I'm the other way IPS>VA because of the better motion performance.

    Got the Dell OLED on order though so trying to wait. Great deal though.

    Fair enough. It all comes down to personal preference.

    Got mine delivered this evening from Argos. Very impressed with it. For an IPS it is good, meaning in my case much lower overall glow type issues than I expected. Gsync seems fine with my 3080Ti and, esepcially with this discount, seems a very decent monitor.

    Heat added and thanks for posting.

    Decent price, it seems. Warranty being only one year isn't great tho.

    Apologies but IPS is an LCD tech.


    Whoops! Thanks for highlighting that!

    Yea last I checked delivery was available in August. You got such a good deal, it's a steal at that price. Is that code still active? I would order one if so. Honestly a good monitor is worth the investment, I got an HP omen 35 X when it first came out and have loved it ever since, it improves gaming so much

    No the code was pulled and I don't think you can get them much under RRP currently.

    Thanks for posting, collected mine a little while ago and I'm happy with it so far. Ended up getting it for 349.99 so not bad at all.

    I have this and it's good. But text can be a bit shoddy even with sharpness up on the settings. I like the flat and not curve, and it's good for gaming at a basic level. But I'd take the Odyssey G5 if it's the same price like it is now (although maybe not available!)

    Damn, was hoping it was more straight forward ha! Nothing is ever simple is it.

    I've been using 2x 27inch curved MSI monitors currently so think curved should be OK. Have seen comments on the "extreme" curvature online.

    Unfortunately neither Argos (for HP) nor the ebay seller (Samsung) accept open box returns

    My HP X34 was returned as it was faulty. No issues with getting a refund.

    As a broad generalisation I do not care much for a VA panel, the viewing angles etc being better for an IPS screen. Again it is down to personal choice and usage.

    A 1000r monitor is, for me, would be too curved. The 1500r Samsung VA panel at 34" I tried was also too much of a curve. I just did not like it nor did I wish to keep it for too long to try and adapt.

    As you already use a curved screen, well two, at least you understand a little of the pros and cons. But yes the 1000r is quite acute, in terms of its curve.

    I prefer a two monitor setup up over a single screen. Again a personal choice.

    Out of curiosity, what was the fault with your monitor?

    At first it seemed great, no issues. But after a few minutes it would flash continually. Different cables or refresh rate didn't matter....

    I rebought this monitor, very impressed with the last one, even tho it was faulty.

    So far the replacement has been great. If anyone else has got one you can get a full three years onsite warranty, well they collect and return it to HP, for less than £3....!
