Worth mentioning that this monitor does not have DisplayPort, so no FreeSync support on Nvidia graphics cards.

Was wondering the same. Also is it as easy to return to amazon UK?

I'm thinking of buying this but I may wait for a deal on a 34" ultrawide instead.
HDR10 on a non 4K monitor? Didn’t know that existed. Is there any readily available 1080p content with HDR?
Good price

Why? HDR isn't just about content consumption, it's about creation too.

Can someone tell me how bad or okay is 34 inch 1080 ultrawide. I can't seem to find any stores near me where I can see it. I use it for mostly cad/invention and a bit of gaming. And the rig I went for is 2700 and amd 590. So I know gaming or seeing simulation at 1440p can be a bit problematic. Can someone advise me

There are community members much more knowledgeable than myself. However, here are my thoughts. I would not be very keen on a 34" 1080 ultrawide monitor because the dpi (dots per inch) appears crazy low. That kind of monitor would only make sense for the people with weaker eye-sight. Your graphics card, which is a 590 isnt very powerful, however, it really all depends on what kind of gaming you partake in. Shooters, strategy etc would be demanding a more powerful card.

I bought a 29" Ultrawide 1080P LG monitor so I could have two full apps next to each other. I haven't tried 16:9 1440P but I can't see how it would be better for me for web development. I also use a second screen for video playback and other stuff so that it doesn't interrupt me using VS Code and Live Preview of what I'm working on.

Ah ok I don't work with spreadsheets. I just need two side by side programs open. So VSCode and Firefox or Chrome. I'm changing from macOS to Linux in less than a month. So I'll see how that goes, I've read it's not as good as macOS for scaling.

Genuine question:

What are the benefits of ultra-wide monitors?

Are these replacements for twin monitors? I would think that the "snap" of two screens makes it easier to have two applications open and copy and paste between them etc.

The extreme letterbox format doesn't look great to me for viewing movies, or playing games.

Struggling to see the benefit of these, but open-ears and open-mind.

Thx

I have one and the main benefit is that it looks cool. This is based purely on the responses from people who see it and say how cool it looks.

Really good for gaming also.

For general office work no real advantage other than having two docs on the monitor at the same time.

But back to the main benefit - it looks cool
Had this monitor previously. Lovelylooking monitor, had no issues with it myself, but only used for gaming. Have since upgraded to a 144hz samsung and wouldn't go back. So just my 2 cents, if your using it for gaming, look past this and go for a 144hz monitor

Super ultrawide really replaces multiple monitor, at a cost.
It's a personal preference thing. I like 16:9 and 21:9. But I prefer 16:9 because it's the standard. There's no workarounds needed for anything.
Shame it only has 1080 vertical pixels.

I would expect there is a work around, maybe its not fast enough . I'm not an expert in monitors frankly.
But if it can run at 75 hz freesync with an A.M.D. card one would expect it could be done with an nvidia card.

It won't work. It's not a case of 'not fast enough', but that Nvidia has thus far only allowed their graphics cards to support adaptive-sync/variable refresh rate of any kind via DisplayPort specifically. This includes their own G-Sync function. The reason why AMD cards can do it over HDMI as well as DP is simply because they (AMD) more or less based their FreeSync on the 'open' standard set by VESA.

It's only with HDMI 2.1 (on both ends, which this monitor certainly will not have) when there should be "universal" VRR support, as it'll be baked into the HDMI 2.1 specifications itself from the very beginning. The HDMI 2.0 standard and below did not contain any requirements for VRR.

It sounds a bit anti consumer to me.(not a big surprise) I expected the allowance of Freesync on nvidia cards to mean they would work on the open standard. (Cheeses, we know that could be done in drivers)
But you have given me (us?) useful info, I've never bought a new nvidia card and never would;

I wouldn't buy an Ultrawide monitor for a PS4 Pro. Get the 4K one, although look around first and see what else there is.
HDR 10 won't really be worth the paper is written on with a brightness level that low

But good price for what your getting.

Generally yes. You get the desktop area of two 4/3 screens. Which works for a lot of use cases. Personally I don't want the clutter of two screens and the space they take up considering you cant get square screens any more. Two widescreen displays are just too wide for my taste.
Plus watching movies is great on a super ultra wide screen. So is gaming.
I have a similar version to this and have been very happy with it.

Productivity is a big benifit. Having more screen real estate means you can get more done.

I personally wouldn't say they are a replacement. They are an in between. You get a lot more productivity out of one screen. I do still use a secondary display when working. Windows natively has a "snap" function and ultrawide utalises this very well. So if you have to have a lot of folders open to manage files, it is a benefit.

For movies, it's native ratio. No letter boxing. It does look odd as I'm not used to seeing a movie full screen. But, it's not here nor there. Personal preference. I don't watch movies on it. YouTube and Twitch I do. Twitch in particular is very good as you can have the chat window open and still have a "full screen" display of the game.

Now as for gaming. It's all down to preference. It is NOT the most optimal way to play for competitiveness. We know this. 27inch normal ratio is the way to go for competitive gaming. They've done tests and stuff. Having to move your head is not what you want. Now, for casual gaming on the other hand. It's amazing. Especially in an open world like Witcher 3. That "empty" space makes the word feel bigger and immersive, and when you take a step back, it looks more.. well.. cinematic as it is the cinematic ratio.

It's all down to use case. I spend 30-40% of my time working from home. And I am more productive when using my ultrawide. For me it is very useful

The benq

This monitor does not push 4k. Your PS4 can't push 21:9. And the PS4 will not utalize freesync. If you use your PS4 pro on this you will get vertical letterboxing. Vertical letterboxing is the worst thing in the world
Is this vesa compatible ?
