aaronace1011

is it curved


No, that's just the way my Calvin Kleins hold it but thanks for asking.

would rather pay £100 and get the curved one.

​£100 more**

Feck is that how much these things cost!
I can get the curved Samsung 34" for same money (after staff discount)
(although it is a refurb - but refurb'd by me )

At 34" it's the same height as a 27" so good for office stuff...

The resolutoin of choice for me, but still the cost..... you can get a 4k and a 1440p for roughly the same amount...

costs more than double for 100hz and g-sync

Lg monitors tend to have alot of screen bleeding. I have the QHD version. I should've gone for a Samsung one.

paid £550 for my X34 Gsync. Once you go widescreen you stuck in a world of split screen browsing hotdeals while watching you tube videos.. Or seriously good gaming with a graphics card price tag that burns holes in your pocket.

Well if it's straight as you say I'd go see a doctor.

Latest gen ultrawides have (nearly) addressed the problem.

Should read...

Once you go 21:9 you're stuck in a world of poorly rendered HUD/UI elements that don't scale correctly, and or applications that can't handle the resolution.

Gaming on these whilst a nice idea is useless for FPS games, FOV is just too wide. Great for RTS/RPG stuff though.

Wouldn't use a monitor (for gaming) without sync now though, it's just too buttery.

The samsung is terrible. I had to send it back. Really bad motion blur and artifacting.
Wasnt a one off either, a few video's of it on youtube.

Happy to entertain, but show me a shot of CS:GO on your 21:9 without rendering issues with the HUD.

Oh and Overwatch? http://hothardware.com/news/blizzard-creates-gamer-anarchy-after-219-resolutions-vanish-from-overwatch

In fact, most competitive games are incompatible with that aspect ratio, like DOTA. It's all there on Google...

You can at 34 inch? Link please.

I would never go back to anything less than 34 inch UWS now. Tried a few types e.g. AOC, iiyama, etc. This seems like a great deal/price.

You clearly can't read.

I never said they were demonic, I simply said that buying a UWS comes with foibles that IMO diminish their value. In this case, rendering issues, lack of publisher support and BD scaling issues.

I mean a 27 inch 4k screen and a 27 inch 1440p screen....

This is literally my life now with the X34. How do you prefer your youtube videos, on the left or right hand side? I prefer right hand side, personally speaking

demonic

de·mon
(dē′mən)
n.
1. An evil supernatural being; a devil.
2. A persistently tormenting person, force, or passion: the demon of drug addiction.
3. One who is extremely zealous, skillful, or diligent: worked away like a demon; a real demon at math.
4. Variant of daimon.

My criticism is leveled at the lack of support for the aspect ratio, which therefore makes purchasing a 21:9 monitor less than ideal.
