    LG 34" 3440x1440 monitor - 34UM94 - $849 w/free shipping

    I mean you'll often see sale price = Massdrop price. Margins on this type of item aren't great and massdrop needs their cut too. How many units do you think Amazon/Staples buy? more than 100...

    AOC U2868PQU Black 28" 1ms 4k HD 10-bit HDMI Widescreen LED

    caution using this for anything other than a video card because apparently it doesn't follow the VESA spec and will give your set top box troubles.

    ... I was just listing all the negative points. I know these have all been mentioned I just think they all add up and don't lend to a good enough product. I was expecting the visual quality to be better, not worse than my older IPS/P-MVA monitors.
