I only recently returned this monitor to Amazon. The image quality was quite good for the money, although you lost a lot of detail in dark areas. My main issue was that ghosting was very bad and noticeable in darker games. If you are looking at this as a monitor for productivity exclusively then I could recommend. If you ever play games then I would say it's not very suitable. If anyone wants to know anything else about this model let me know, I will try and help.

After the last Samsung monitor I got, I shudder the thought of another one!.
This one may be fantastic, and it's certainly a deal.
Read reviews well, and make your choice.

There’s no price in the title!
That's lot of the monitor for the money. They could add 100hz option for extra 100, would be sold

Would have bought if it was curved

Would have bought if it was curved


On a 34 inch being used as a monitor, a curve is very important. The edges are nearly 1.5 times further than the centre of the screen, and can mess with your eyes.

If I find a good deal for one I'll post it
Anyone tried this on g-sync compatible mode yet, and would this overclock an extra 10hz?..

Lucky to get this to the 75hz if I'm honest. Why use gsync when you can use fast sync?

You just set it to 75Hz and off you go. I wouldn't call that luck.
I'm soooo tempted... I was looking at this when it was £389 but I got two Brand new 4k monitors for £100 + £200 on gumtree

Not always possible at that resolution , would need a 1080ti or 2080ti to drive it at 75 Hz. Even then there will be FPS drops and adaptive sync can help if enabled.
Also there is a bug in the Nvidia drivers until recently they would do refresh rates higher than 60hz on some adaptive sync monitors, until they became compatible with the very last driver release.
I had this on mine, was a pain for a long time!. Couldn't even force the refresh rate at 75, never mind adaptive sync . It would change the refresh rate but it would in fact run at 25.

I see what you mean.

Been reading about Fast Sync. It's different. It's a software solution like V Sync. Useful if you want to run a higher FPS than what your monitor can handle, without input issues, but can cause dropped frames?
I can imagine VRR being much smoother.

Nvidia supports VRR with the open standard which AMD and Intel support. Things are now much better as it also allows all the monitors supported resolutions ... Very naughty of Nvidia .. not fixing a known driver issue for over 2 yearS!

Yep. I wonder how well this monitor handles VRR. Might have to search around.

Also one of the many issues I have with .y Samsung monitor.. colours all all off, no dark colour subtlety, colour range way too limited .

Probably not only because you'd have to be watching exclusively 21:9 content to get any worth out of it. Anything 16:9 will be the equivalent size of a 27 inch monitor. I think you're better off spending the £300 on a cheap 42 inch TV which has slightly more width than this but with the added height when watching 16:9 .
This is a good price for a 34 inch screen but really I wouldn't buy an 34" UWD unless it was curved. Unfortunately to get the curved version of this it's around £250 more: Amazon link
Edited by: "0BS1D1AN" 12th Feb 2019
I own this, and it's a good monitor - for the price. You have to remember that a 3440x1440 34in screen for ~£300 isn't going to blow you away with colour reproduction or frequency. I definitely couldn't go back to a regular widescreen as my main display after this, the productivity boon is just so high.

Well, being able to split a stream alongside my productivity, anyway. I'm not sure that really does improve 'productivity' but it's a fun thing to be able to do now, anyway.

It is very good but takes getting used to.. The width. I had a aoc 4k 28" which I think was actually better but have no regrets.

No. For a few reasons.

- There are no speakers so sound will be coming out of your laptop which isn't great or you would need to add an external sound bar
- Most content isn't set-up for ultrawide resolutions so the picture is a lot smaller than the actual monitor size (although content filmed in a ultrawide aspect ratio looks the absolute dogs b******)

However all this aside, the main reason is why would you even bother? Just buy a TV, you can get a very good spec 4k screen from a reputable brand, around the 40-43inch size mark for the same price. There are even some budget brands offering 55inch models in and around £350 price bracket.
Couldn't resist... had to buy one at this price!

Christ on a bike this monitor's big. Plus you can't adjust the height of the stand - it's 4 inches above the desk + screen height is about another 15 inches.
Pretty great so far though, especially when you get used to it.

A couple of additions to what I wrote above having owned this monitor for a while now:
- Power socket is awful and it's quite difficult to move this without a lot of fiddling to get it to stay in, this seems to have worsened (it was fine when I got it) but apparently YMMV with how yours is
- The monitor DOES auto-standby contrary to what is sometimes brought up, but only over Displayport, not HDMI (though I'm pretty sure after a long time of no signal it does on HDMI too).
So one downside... displayport. It's only using DP1.2. No Freesync on a Nvidia card for me
