Just had a price drop alert on this monitor, it's usually £400+

Features:
  • 21:9 UltraWide FHD on IPS Display
  • Resolution: 2560 x 1080 & Color Depth (Number of Colors): 8bits, 16.7M.
  • FreeSync 75Hz

This is a 2560 x 1080 monitor but it's a steal of a price

Should do 75hz on Nvidia GPUs fine too, for the record. Often you have to enable Freesync on the monitor menu and then 75hz becomes available in Windows, or you can "overclock" the monitor to that level with Nvidia's control panel.

Decent price - I'm personally not adverse to 2560x1080 at 34". It's the same as a 27" regular 16:9 monitor at 1080p. Not perfect for desktop work where higher DPI is preferable, but just fine for gaming and media.

Also ... ultrawide is king. Always. Check out ultrawidemasterrace/ sub on Reddit for more info, along with WAF on Youtube for gaming reviews (and tweak guides for the minor handful of games which don't work natively).
Freesync is only for AMD gpu's. If you have Nvidia card go for G-sync monitors. Learned it the hard way

Lol ... yes, that is true Nvidia cards won't run Freesync and AMD card won't enable Gsync. Not that it stops you from using the monitor in any way. It's an additional feature, which works best at lower fps/refresh-rates in my experience.

I've got a GTX1070ti and a 144hz Freesync monitor ... and at 100+hz (often lower), I don't miss freesync at all (had Vega 56 before).

For the record, Nvidia could enable Freesync support with a simple driver update. They choose not to. Freesync is open sourced, not AMD specific. Gsync is the enclosed ecosystem.
I have had this for a couple of years. Good monitor with height adjustable stand too. You can overclock it too - I run it 30-80hz so it can enable AMD’s low frame rate control (if that is important to you).
Missed out on the 29" at circa £200 last year (the price has remained constant at £260 since...) so had another look and noticed this price drop too. Am very close to buying this for the price but concerned by the low rating here - is this price not impressive or is it the monitor (I'm currently doing the rounds on Youtube to get a better idea)?

I'd predominately use it for work (reporting and dashboarding, etc) but want something that I can also use for photo editing and perhaps some light gaming (though I never have time for the latter). I have a home-build PC with an AMD gpu but don't think it has Freesync although I will upgrade that at some point.

I currently use a spare 37" LG tv as a monitor and it far too big that close up so need a replacement.

I definitely want an ultrawide but now debating whether this is worth it...

Cheers
Purchased it and voted hot after some research and thought. Lowest price it's been...
