The Samsung LS34J550 Quad HD 34'' LED Monitor is so wide you won't have to buy two monitors. Project a side-by-side image from two different sources with the Picture-by-Picture (PBP) feature. You can even resize the second source to 25% of its original size. It's great if you multitask.

AMD FreeSync
Ultra WQHD resolution offers realistic image clarity. Games, movies and documents will benefit from the razor-sharp screen detail you'll get with this display. FreeSync matches the monitor refresh rate with your graphics card to avoid image tear or shutter. Together with Input Lag Mode, you'll enjoy smooth gaming.

Mounting options
If you prefer your monitor mounted on the wall this one is ready to go. All you'll need is the mount.
Seamless multi-tasking. With its 34" ultra-wide screen and 21:9 WQHD resolution, the SJ55W provides all the workspace you need to comfortably multi-task on a single screen. And whether you’re working on documents, playing games, or watching
movies, you’ll enjoy all your content in superbly detailed WQHD quality.

WQHD image quality
With a screen resolution of 3440x1440 pixels—approximately 2.4 times the
density of Full HD— the SJ55W delivers razor-sharp images. And with
extra pixels to display content, you can view more webpages and
documents at the same time without scrolling or zooming out.

PBP/PIP
Picture-by-Picture
(PBP) function displays input from two sources side-by-side at their
native resolution. And for optimal multi-tasking, Picture-in-Picture
(PIP) lets you resize the second source to up to 25% of the screen and position it anywhere.

Stylish and practical.The SJ55W’s slim panel, elegant Y-stand, and metallic bezel bring quality and style to the workplace or home. And with a VESA-compatible mount for precision positioning and DP and HDMI ports offering multiple connectivity options, the SJ55W is as practical as it is stylish.

Thanks everyone for voting my thread over a 1000 degrees of heat. I have been a member on HUKD for nearly 10 years and this is my first 1000 degrees of heat, you've just made my Christmas.
Have one. 95Hz OC, gsync. But keep in mind, whrn looking at monitor thru camera, you see flickering (can't remember how it's called), some can spot this with naked eye, some can have headaches, even if they don't notice. And other con, colors. Even after calibrating with SpyderX, dark colors look way worse than my Iiyama IPS.
But for this price monitor really good.

not really a gamer here. is it good for productive/office work?


Yes ideal, as you can run two programs/documents side by side easily.
Have one and bought over £370 last month. It is great monitor for my office work. Excellent, vivid colour, plus side-by-side windows are great.

It's not a bad display at all, and the price is great. Ultrawide is really nice. You might be lucky to get 90Hz refresh rate overclocked.

Looks really good on the face of it. But reading from some reviews it seems to have a screen tearing issue.

Did you check for skipping frames at that refresh rate?
Be great for video editing or music tracking. Nice if could combine with a 4k screen alongside.

Might have a look at this tomorrow. 95hz OC, FreeSync and 1440p under 300 at that size. Smells like a bargain to me.

It would be fantastic if they want the ultrawide experience. For things 16:9 you're stuck with either stretching and cropping the image or black bars down the sides. Pretty much every game released now supports 21:9 (this monitors aspect ratio). I would say go 2560x1440 @ 144Hz if they're not fussed. LG have a 32inch one for £300.

I will tell him in the morning, he is wanting a decent screen set up,it's a shame the Ebay promotion code has finished,I think it might have been even cheaper from their Ebay Outlet.

How’s the FreeSync and colour accuracy on this? Very tempted.
rev610/12/2019 22:40

No frames skips detected. Tried even higher frame rates, something around 107Hz if I'm not mistaken, but without Freesync (G-Sync) and got many frame skips. After enabling Freesync max OC 95Hz.
No USB-C 👎🏽 (if you have a MacBook you can’t use single cable to power it and display it). Samsung do a similar model which does though.

Been waiting on an ultrawide for over 12 months. It was finally the right deal at the right time.

Thanks.

Afraid not, consoles don't support this resolution. You'd have big black bars either side.
xlinefool11/12/2019 08:30

Yes ideal, as you can run two programs/documents side by side easily.
If you can reliably overclock this to 95hz then this is a good deal, it looks to be by far the cheapest from a decent brand for this size and res.

34" and 3440 x 1440 is a great format as it allows two normal programs open side by side.

It has a VA panel so it will always have a bit of motion blur and smear compared to an IPS monitor but some of the VA panels are getting better.

Also I read that the viewing angles might not be the best on this monitor especially as it has a flat screen and it was a combination of this and not knowing it could be overclocked that made me recently go for the BenQ EX3501R but it was a lot more money.

Main thing putting me off, however USB-C equivalent at this size is typically double the cost, so may put up with an extra cable...

Me too, I think his weekiy board payment will have to rise!...LOL
This has been my daily driver for some time now, the real estate the resolution + size of it gives is something I doubt I could live without nowadays, it's a massive help for productivity. Colour reproduction is 'good enough that outside of HDR you probably won't notice' and it also does games well too, though obviously support for 21:9 is still pretty hit or miss.

It's a cheap, 'good enough' monitor if you need the size. The screen isn't as good as a £600+ screen, it doesn't have 1ns response, it can ghost a little in some situations - but it's ultimately £280 for a 34in ultrawide, so you're getting (a bit better than) what you pay for. Oh, and mine out of the box supports 75Hz, at some point they seem to have dropped what it's marketed as? Same monitor, just a little change for some reason.

Be careful with the power connector on the back though, it's a bit arse. Fine when you get it in, but takes a bit of fiddling. Like many things in life.

Bought this one in November for 299 at Currys as well, have to say that it works great for productivity. Very easy to work at this resolution. I feel that with 4k, is too small especially with a shorter height. I'm not sure how it would perform for gamers but I think there isn't a monitor that is better in this budget range.

My exact build lol I'm looking at a 27" 144hz panel under £400 make sure u get a decent fan for the 3600 as they seem to run hot
This is cheap for a reason.

- it's not curved but is a VA panel so the edges look washed out and there is a large colour shift
- Colours generally are not great.
- The power cable connection is bad to the point of falling out if the monitor is moved/knocked.
- No USB/KVM/Charge/I/O hub features built in
- Lower refresh rate

You need to push power cable in until you hear it snap into place. It's not so easy to remove after that

Personally I think you'd be better with a standard 1440p 120 or 144Hz display. But yeah, it will be okay.
