Lol push it to the max and it's fixed!that's engineering for you. Is ultrawide worth it though...hmmmmmm

HedgyHoggy

Hi, I managed to fix it by overclocking the monitor, at 160hz the issue disappears. I ran the frameskipping test and it's 100% fine. The problem with TN is they don't come in ultrawide.

MIINT

I would try and get a replacement. IPS has bleed issues which is what's stopping me from getting an IPS and to go with the TN.. also trying to work out whether I'm really bothered about screen tearing..

HedgyHoggy

I bought this monitor and it's great, however I just noticed a possible problem. When I'm looking at a very dark image in a game (like a night level on Arma3 or Wildlands) and then move the mouse/camera a little the image brightens slightly in the dark areas while it's happening. It goes dark again instantly when movement stops. This is not a graphics settings problem, it's definitely the monitor itself. I've tried every setting to get rid of it and nothing works. Can anyone who owns this panel test and see if theirs does the same? This is my first IPS panel so maybe this is normal. Dell says I have to send the monitor back today if I want a refund. I play in a very dark room and 20% brightness so perhaps I notice this more than most people. Please help this poor hedgehog.

You are correct on the technical details but for productivity needs (programming) the ppi is perfectly fine. Obviously it's not going to fit the bill for video production or gaming but you wouldn't be looking at a sub £800 ultrawide if this was your use case, you'd most likely be looking at 4k 144mhz+ monitors.

You have lost me. I was only pointing out that a 34"=27" nothing more but as its not for you then not really a big deal.

Defiant306

You have completely lost me. The LG Ultrawide 34UM68-P in this deal is 34" monitor at 2560x1080, in my view that is far too low a resolution for a monitor of this size. Weather its a 34" or 27" 1080p on monitor of that size has to low a PPI for some peoples liking including me. Redit quote: 1920x1080 on a 27" screen has pretty much the same PPI (Pixel Per Inch - Pixel density) as 2560x1080 on a 34"/35". https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/62oltc/ultrawide_34_inch_is_1080p_really_not_enough/

Yes but the screen isnt 34" = 27" on a ultrawide.

Stretched? What? :/

terry_burns85

I use a dell U3415W which is 3440x1440. I agree that 2560x1080 could look stretched at 34". Best look at some video reviews before buying.

I've had the 29" for about 2 years. No problems at all, great picture quality. Used for PC gaming and design.

I bought the 29" last year and I'm very impressed... now considering upgrading to the 34"! EDIT: Top tip: Putting your Windows taskbar on the left or right, rather than default bottom, gives a lot more real estate.

Purchased it and voted hot after some research and thought. Lowest price it's been...

Harry.Turk

Missed out on the 29" at circa £200 last year (the price has remained constant at £260 since...) so had another look and noticed this price drop too. Am very close to buying this for the price but concerned by the low rating here - is this price not impressive or is it the monitor (I'm currently doing the rounds on Youtube to get a better idea)? I'd predominately use it for work (reporting and dashboarding, etc) but want something that I can also use for photo editing and perhaps some light gaming (though I never have time for the latter). I have a home-build PC with an AMD gpu but don't think it has Freesync although I will upgrade that at some point. I currently use a spare 37" LG tv as a monitor and it far too big that close up so need a replacement. I definitely want an ultrawide but now debating whether this is worth it... Cheers

scoopsuk

I have had this for a couple of years. Good monitor with height adjustable stand too. You can overclock it too - I run it 30-80hz so it can enable AMD’s low frame rate control (if that is important to you).

Beehj84

Lol ... yes, that is true Nvidia cards won't run Freesync and AMD card won't enable Gsync. Not that it stops you from using the monitor in any way. It's an additional feature, which works best at lower fps/refresh-rates in my experience. I've got a GTX1070ti and a 144hz Freesync monitor ... and at 100+hz (often lower), I don't miss freesync at all (had Vega 56 before). For the record, Nvidia could enable Freesync support with a simple driver update. They choose not to. Freesync is open sourced, not AMD specific. Gsync is the enclosed ecosystem.

dagher

Freesync is only for AMD gpu's. If you have Nvidia card go for G-sync monitors. Learned it the hard way (nerd)

I have this model but 29 inch (bought on amazon for 160 I believe). I personally wouldnt go any smaller than 29, monitor is wide so on 25 inch it will probably be short. 29 is roughly same height as my standard 16:9 22 inch. Wide screen is really awesome for productivity though!

Sam.Pickering

Amazing monitor. I have the 29inch version. I wouldn't personally go smaller than that but at this price it's a steal. 21:9 is the future when it comes to pc gaming (it's amazing)

EndlessWaves

You can't talk about pixel density without talking about viewing distance. People view monitors from anywhere between 20-30cm to 1.2-1.5m. What works at the lower end of the distance range doesn't at the higher and vice versa. DPI scaling is a nice idea, but you need a lot of pixels if you want to avoid the blur. LG's upcoming 5120x2880 34WK95U would be a good candidate but I'd not convinced about 3440x1440 over 2560x1080 if you're going to use 125-150% scaling. Now that's just tortuous. quoting the number of 'lines' is a fashion that's only shown up in the last 10-15 years in computer monitors, although why people keep using it I have no idea given the confusion it leads to.

They can be a real pain to get in touch with too. During a monitor misprice before, they kept trying to phone my house number during a work day despite me giving a mobile number to contact when ordering. Never sent an email or tried any other contact option. Eventually I contacted them to ask them what was happening since the order hadn't moved for like 5 days, finally got told that they no longer sold the product and they'd tried to ring me on my home number. During this time, they apparently tried to contact my home number during work hours again. In the end I just asked for a refund through their form because I couldn't be bothered. A friend who also tried to order the same product apparently got offered other products for way higher prices. A week later they'd put the product they miss-priced back on the site at it's normal price. They should have just said it was a miss price instead of lying...

scoopsuk

@Beehj84 - Yep a good and comprehensive response. I have a flat 34 inch ultrawide and for general use I wouldn't want to go back to 16:9 without having two monitors. I am not a big fan of curved screens but this is the one scenario where I could see it would make sense. Gaming with it is fabulous - sure not every single game plays with it but if you are stuck with 16:9 it is roughly the same size as a 27 inch normal display so plenty big enough. I would recommend an ultrawide wholeheartedly but just add the following areas of consideration: 1. A 29inch display or less will appear fairly small on your desk due to the reduced height. Definitely try one out if you can first so you can see how it works for you. 2. A 34inch display takes up a lot of desk space, it might be a shock as to just how wide it is so make sure you have room. 3. Related to the point above, if you want two of them you are going to need a ton of room and may have to change your workspace entirely. 4. I would recommend getting one with a decent stand that has height adjustment as well as tilt - the stands on some of them are a bit rubbish and the increased screen size can mean a wobbly display if it and your desk aren't particular sturdy.

Beehj84

1. 34" ultrawides should be curved, with the distance one sits from their monitor. Content creators concerned about their straight lines typically find it not an issue on a slight curve, but if it's a real issue, are probably better served with multiple 4k 16:9 flat screens. 2. Ultrawides are DEFINITELY better for immersive gaming than a similarly sized normal widescreen. I hear a lot of people who've never used one talking about their presumptions of it. As an ultrawide owner, I can tell you, I'm never going back, never downgrading back to 16:9. Games like The Witcher 3 are stunning in ultrawide. In fact everything I've played has been better in ultrawide, period. Planet Coaster. Wolfenstein 2. Rocket League. Half Life 2. Final Fantasy XV. Skyrim (especially heavily modded). Battlefield 1. Xcom Enemy Within and 2. Dirt 4. Project Cars. Metro 2033 series. Doom. Firewatch. GTA (all of them). Star Wars Battlefront. The Long Dark. Middle Earth Shadows of War. Far Cry 3/4. Kings Quest. Tomb Raider (& Rise of). Warframe. Elite Dangerous. Fallout 4. Bioshock. Stardew Valley. Civilization V and VI. Mass Effect series. Batman Arkham series. Age of Empires .... I'll stop. I could keep going, but I'll stop. All of them definitively better in my experience on ultrawide. 3. Gaming is about more than solely competitive play - that you can only focus on a single area isn't representative of the needs, desires, or capacities of other gamers. Regardless, competitively, ultrawide isn't necessarily a distinct advantage per se, but it sure doesn't have any remotely negative impact in my scores in BF1. The wider field of view especially in vehicles gives a greater sense of scale and context moment to moment, which helps with tactics, moving through terraint, and awareness. 4. You don't need the peripheral view of ultrawide, but you don't really need 16:9. 4:3 is plenty right (I remember the backlash against 16:9 when it first came in from 4:3 purists). And if GPU horsepower is concerned, who needs 4k, or 1440p, or even 1080p. surely 720p is enough. Heck, #480pmasterrace. Nobody needs mechanical keyboards, mice with 2 buttons, or i7 CPUs, or modern graphics cards, or overclocking period. Water cooling is nonsense, people don't really need dedicated gaming rigs or even laptops ... everyone can get buy playing snake on their Nokia 5110 phone, or Pong on the Atari 2600. /s //"And for another thing, according to a friend of mine who regrets buying one, ultrawide isn't supported by a lot of games."// There are a handful of games which don't support 21:9 resolutions. They won't support multmonitor surround setups either. In both cases, the games still run on the screen in 16:9, or on the center screen. These cases are so few and far between it's much easier to count them than the ones which support ultrawide. Most games today support it natively, out of the box. Most popular games from the past support it natively. Some games need minor, seriously easy tweaks (often simply turning on flawless widescreen). The notion that "a lot of games don't support ultrawide", if removing the examples which also don't support 16:9, becomes borderline misleading. I've not encountered a single issue that made me regret buying an ultrawide at all. Perhaps they're not suited to people who should really just be playing consoles, and they are definitely an enthusiast experience on the PC,

DancingOmelette

Yeah, curved is probably sensible with ultrawide, and I accept that an ultrawide screen may have productivity benefits (although... Is it really much better over getting a 34" normal widescreen with a higher vertical resolution? The same desktop area but with a better balance between width and height, I feel), but I think they're generally marketed as being better for gaming, and that's just not true. For one thing, you can only focus your eyes on one area at a time, and you just don't need that much peripheral vision in a game - certainly not enough for it to be worth the extra GPU power required. And for another thing, according to a friend of mine who regrets buying one, ultrawide isn't supported by a lot of games.

Yeah I could have got him a 1440p ultrawide but then he would be stuck on low FPS on a higher res cause I’m not buying him a 1080Ti at today’s prices lol his GTX1070 and this monitor is a great match and he’s happy as Larry ooo and it’s a IPS panel (viewing angle better than VA) with G-Sync so it’s all good in my eyes.

Whiteboard91

Got mine delivered a couple of days ago and running it with 2x GTX 970's in SLI - this monitor is unbelievable compared to my Dell U2410! Maybe my eyesite is crap, but i have no idea what people are talking about when they say 'you can see the pixels' because of the low DPI, I get that it's not quite as sharp in general use as a 1440p monitor but it still looks fantastic and in games I have to say G-Sync + high Hz is just another level. And as you say, because it's 1080p you get the best of both worlds in terms of size/quality vs high FPS. For this price I would have to recommend it to anyone.

CampGareth

Monitors in common sizes and resolutions such as 24" 1080p may have the same problems you highlights with TVs, that many panels from different manufacturers are available and are interchangeable. That is not the case for uncommon sizes e.g. AU Optronics are literally the only company manufacturing 35" ultrawide panels. That is why there is a lack of innovation and competition in the uncommon monitor space. I was pointing out that the people to blame are not e.g. Asus, Acer, Dell, AOC, Iiyama, BenQ. They have no power to innovate. All they do is slap whatever panels are available into a plastic case.

The one I ordered turned up today. Checking out the box contents before wrapping it up for Christmas. Unsurprisingly it's a Euro plug in the box. The screen is powered by a laptop type supply that takes a cloverleaf plug on the input side. I have a spare one from an old laptop which works fine. If you don't have one (and have ordered the monitor) you'll need one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003VRBFJE/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 or just chop the plug off and put a UK one on. HDMI cable included in the box, but no displayport cable, if you want to connect it that way. I sneakily hooked my laptop to it before putting away, no dead pixels and quite frankly it looks amazing.

cactusbob

Should be a good fit, seems to come with software for splitting the screen into workspaces, or with windows you can just drag apps to each side to automatically arrange them

MIDURIX

suppose. 1080p is 2MP so a big jump from that anyway.

Gormond

Not that close to 4k, 5.0 MP compared to 8.3 MP (3440 x 1440 vs 3840 x 2160).

MIDURIX

1440 vertical pixels would be nice, but then the resolution would be very close to 4k in terms of pixel count, so you would need a 1070/1080.

Gormond

Aren't people normally right in front of a monitor? Personally I would want 1440p at that size but if your fine with the lower ppi it's a good deal.

Don't know what games or monitors you have used but the extra horizontal pixels are exactly the same quality as the rest. This hints that you probably haven't used or owned one. They are not stretched nor blurry. I wouldn't return to a standard wide-screen after going to a 1440p ultra wide-screen. Destiny 2, Doom, Prey, RB6 Seige etc all look fantastic and provide extra immersion.

EndlessWaves

I use the desk for more than just a computer, and the obvious place for the monitor is at the back of it. My desk is probably bigger than average but it's not huge, maybe 1.5m by 0.9m excluding the pull-out keyboard tray. I bought it a couple of decades ago when large CRTs were common but the extra depth is so useful I'd buy the same size again today if it broke. I use 1920x1200 24" monitor right now and the pixel density is just too high. I have to leave a good 20cm between the back of it's stand and the rear edge of it's desk to distinguish between small details such as a full stop and a comma. I wish I'd bought a 27" at the time. I've never tried a monitor of this DPI, but I had briefly had a 32" 1920x1080 TV set up and while that is too coarse, it's not too coarse by much. That's an absurd comparison. It's always been resolution and size that has determined cost, not pixel density. A 29" 2560x1080 screen is the same 96dpi as my current monitor and just wouldn't be ideal for me, and a 34" 3440x1440 is even worse. I'd go for a 34" 5120x2160 and use 2x scaling to get the same sizing as 2560x1080, but the panel manufacturers haven't started producing them yet. If these screens don't work for you that's fine, I just get tired of people commenting that they're rubbish because of that.

It is subjective. If you pixel peep this isn't for you. I have the 3200 version of this which is the same but normal aspect ratio and I love it. It makes running most games at 144hz achievable with a lower graphics card and perfectly fits my needs. I use a 1070gtx and feel like it's a great combo, even better if you run amd. It's worth noting that I came to this monitor from an LG ultra wide 1440p IPS panel. But for me the high refresh outweighs pixels. This is completely subjective but not as simple as you may think for a gamer

Being sat a metre away from a monitor is unusual, but even then, the pixel density on this monitor will be quite noticeable, especially compared to a standard 24" 1920x1080 monitor. Anyone upgrading from one of those to this may very well be disappointed in image quality. Ultrawide or not, £400 for a monitor with a lower pixel density than those you can pickup for £100 or so just strikes me as poor value for money. Much better off going with either a 29" ultrawide at this resolution and saving some cash, or investing a bit more and going for a 35" ultrawide at 1440p.

I guess it's subjective, if you can use the sides peripherally it's probably ok. I've got a naturally wide fov so I can "see" the blurry stretched edges quite easily and it's off-putting. Plus I'd be massively disappointed if I paid extra for a big monitor, and extra for a better GPU to push those frames, if the only 'extra' bits are stretchy off screen blur :/

Yes it seems as if I was misinformed. You are indeed correct 3440*1400 tends to come at 100HZ, whilst the 2560*1440 come at 144HZ, sorry about that, guess I learnt something now today

Please, link me one. EDIT - I may as well tell you why you're wrong... You're most likely thinking of 2560 x 1080 resolution 144Hz monitors which do exist. However, OP has linked a 3440 x 1440 resolution (UWQHD) monitor, for which models can only be found up to 100Hz, since 3440 x 1400 at 144Hz has long been beyond our capabilities and only now are they in the process of getting these types of monitors out into production (they haven't been released yet). So yes, what OP has linked is a good deal, particularly as it is an IPS panel.

There's quite a few...

Now seems to have jumped to £899.99 just as I was placing my order... Bravo Acer.

LG and Samsung both have monitors with those specs.

I've been looking at getting an ultrawide and gutted I missed out on the £170 deal, reckon I go for this or wait for this friday to see if it gets any cheaper?

So did I. Guess we won't see those prices again for quite a while.

EndlessWaves

Not really. The diagonals aren't comparable between different aspect ratios, so a 29" 2560x1080 has the reference 96dpi, the same as a 1920x1080 23" screen.

But look at the Girth.

Most ultrawides are 2560 x 1080 ,which on a screen around 27 inches makes pixels pretty noticeable
