This is the first time I have seen this below £1000.

Bit of a niche post and definitely not suitable for everyone but for my purposes (SIM racing and general gaming and productivity) it looks great.

I use an ultrawide for productivity and it is great. I'm trying to convince the office that one of these would be better than 2 27" monitors but i don't think they are having it.

Probably nicer to look at, but our 2x27 inch Benq setups were £300. The savings on that put a 2080 Super in your machine.

We all use laptops with docking stations so there will be no 2080 for me i'm afraid.
Wow HDR 1000 too! Not many high end monitors offer that
Anyone actually got this? What kind of benchmarks you getting for pc games?
From my research it's near impossible to get '4k' @ 70hz or more even with high end graphics cards.
Not enough bandwidth.
Hdmi 2.1 can deliver but no GPUs with hdmi 2.1 yet and display port 1.5 is a long way off.

I've got a 5120x2880@60hz with two 1070s in SLI and can get F1 2018 running in best settings at over 60fps. There's plenty of bandwidth within Displayport 1.4 to run high refresh rates at 5120x1440.

PPI is a bit low on these ultrawides ,not sure they are worth the high cost.
4k monitor would be better I think.

Fair enough. I was thinking more of 4k@100 hz or above.
From what I've researched the bandwidth just isn't there yet.
I'm going to look at a few more YouTube vids think
No idea why people are voting this cold. It's an amazing monitor I wish I could afford. Squirrel did a video on this monitor. Heat added as this is like never below 1k.

can't say for an ultrawide of this size I got a smaller ultrawide but I went from a 4k monitor to an ultrawide monitor and it is much nicer

I think you're right that HDMI2.0b will have trouble driving 4k at much more than 60hz. DP1.4 can carry up to 25gbps so I that will cover 4k 100hz at 10-bit colour, or 120hz at 8-bit. At 5120x1440 10-bit colour, it can carry 120hz.

Edit: quick bit of maths suggests you can squeeze nearly 80hz out of 4k 10-bit colour, or nearly 100hz at 8-bit out of HDMI2.0b

I'm a little bit unimpressed with the benefits of high DPI screens, outside of specialist use like photo and video work. Sure, text looks super sharp but smoother refresh rate is probably better in most cases.

But yes you're right, they generally speaking are quite expensive. Though this one is not too badly priced. Effectively two 27"(ish) monitors with HDR1000 at 2560x1440 at £500 each but with the wow factor of being one piece of glass. I think this is a good deal.

Same PPI as a 27" 1440p monitor at 108PPI, should be just fine for the majority of people.

Also 4k at 27" doesn't really work. Too small, and you have to go to non integer scaling to get a sensible text size. 2560x1440 is perfect at 27" at 1:1.
Purchased and used this monitor after upgrading from 3x Dell u2412m. Would never go back. It's awesome.
Sorry voted cold by mistake, thought it was the old 1080 model, this is an absolutely amazing price in my opinion, best monitor you can buy if your desk is big enough
Didn't expect this to go hot. Just wanted others to know about the price. I'm going to order mine tonight. Fingers crossed I get a good panel.

I can see that it is theoretically possible it's just that there are other limiting factors even with the top-notch graphics cards.
don't think it's possible to hit the higher levels yet but I may be mistaken
I will research further thank you

If I were spending that money 108 ppi is definitely too low.
Fine on a cheaper monitor .

I'm looking to upgrade my twin 24 inch 1080p monitors to either an ultrawide/super ultrawide or a 32 inch 4k.
The Ultrawide offers a wider working space but lower ppi .
4k is much sharper text ,and I'm suffering from eye strain lately as I work alot on the pc and sit close to the screen.
The problem with 4k is that whilst text is sharper you have to scale everything up so you are losing workspace.
I dont game so the monitor will be used for productivity and work.
This screen is probably overkill for that I guess.

For top level gaming, yeah. You need something reasonably special to run 4k at 100+ FPS. Bear in mind though that 5120x1440 is actually lower resolution than 4k.

Whoah. Man I really hope you are blown away by it, and I also hope it fits on your desk. I'd give my left thumb for that monitor..
Wow! This thing is huge. Very happy with it. Only slight downer was one dead pixel but it's in the top right hand corner and I can only see it on a white screen. Colours and contrast are fantastic. Haven't played with it too much yet. Its so heavy the desk flexes a bit where the arm clamps to it. Tried PS4 one half of the screen and PC on the other just for fun. Wife keeps laughing at it though
Great!

We'll finally be able to look at those holiday photos of my mother in law.
I'd love this monitor too! Although in this day and age, shouldn't dead pixels be a thing of the past? Why can't they check the panel before it leaves the factory? I don't feel right about paying over £300 for a monitor knowing dead pixels could still be a possibility.
