These things are going to drop in price like a stone over the next little while. That 1080 vertical resolution is horrible in a monitor this wide, returned my one after a few days (different monitor same resolution).

What a strange monitor.
The resolution let's the whole thing down.

I'm keen for a 144hz ultra wide but not with this resolution.

This is 80dpi so similar to a 27" 1920x1080.

It's not for everyone but there are plenty of people for whom it does work. My next monitor will be one of these are the 96dpi of my 1920x1200@24" screen is just too high for my setup.

If it doesn't suit you that's fine, but let's not treat a situation dependant characteristic as a negative.

This is a good deal, I've been watching this one and it's normally well over four hundred quid. The only other similar monitor (Freesync LFC, 80dpi, Ultrawide) is £550-600, the AOC Agon 35"

Really good price.

Heat added - proper UK wide free postage too!

I have the same resolution on a 29" screen. Works well for me, but I imagine it wouldn't on anything larger.

I couldn't possibly imagine playing 21:9 on a 34" with a 1080p v.resolution. I imagine the image looks stretched as hell.

Literally every review says the resolution isn't a problem - every one of these ultrawides has a trade-off somewhere, whether it's 1080p, no Freesync/G-Sync or a TN panel.

Super heat.

I have an LG 21:9 34" at this resolution and it's amazing. I went for the 1080p to get better FPS. Really great monitor.

If it's for gaming then it'll be fine. I had an LG non-curved and it was no problem at all. As someone mentioned, vertically it's like a 27inch monitor in height, so the 1080 works well enough.

The problem is if you've seen anything with a higher resolution for frequent desktop work then it'll pale in comparison. With the 144Hz refresh rate though, this is meant for gamers and there are much better options otherwise.

I don't understand where this fad for curved monitors came from; no game renders with a curved projection plane, so displaying the resultant image onto a curved surface is just introducing distortion error.

I think that is the problem though - Most hardcore gamers that would be in this mid-upper market of monitors have at least experienced 1440p whether at 144hz or not. Close to £400 is not good territory for this monitor to be in when the ACER 27inch 1440p 144hz monitors are about £20-30 behind.

Bought OP, so you've helped at least one person

Nice find OP. Seriously considering this to replace my old 24" screen. Mainly for productivity.

Newbie question - does the amd sync matter if you're rocking intel i7 with 1060 gt graphics? Cheers

Don't think it does. As far as I'm aware, nvidia cards only work with g sync. Could be wrong though, but don't see why it isn't that.
