    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    wait for the alienware. They are going to be coming out with this panel. Should be designated AW3821DW. My only hope is that they will actually have their own implementation of cooling the gsync module instead of this horrific fan.

    Acer Predator X38 impressions (broken IPS)

    that is simply too much. 1800-1900 euro i would find maybe acceptable if it's as good as you say, but THAT price is just out of the question :D

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    this guy did. see pics here: https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/posts/33645756 he also replaced the GSYNC module fan and the hissing is gone. read the thread from the point i linked to.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    i thought this was the fan too at first, but this sound is totally constant, i have powered the screen down with the power button and the sound was there 7 hours later when i got up from bed. surely the fan would not be running 24/7 while the monitor is turned off? edit: seems like the fan...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    got my unit yesterday and was very happy with it, until.... as i was going to bed, i noticed a weird sound coming out of the monitor, mostly because it was very quiet at night. i think this is the dreaded coil whine. https://clyp.it/3sea3pea first 6 seconds are quiet, i plug the monitor in...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    the thing i'd like to know is how much worse would my FPS be in for example COD:MW with this res on a 1080ti, when i get around 100-120 on a 3440x1440 (not maxed out details ofc), how much worse would it get with +1.2mil pixels? down by 10? 20? 50? anyone with the screen and 1080ti here? :)...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    i'm driving the AW3418DW with a 1080ti around 100 FPS in modern titles with some details lowered. i guess this thing would flush my FPS down the drain with the same GPU. i wish 3000s nvidias would be here sooner :)

    Acer XR341CKA 21:9 QHD G-Sync IPS Monitor

    not really. the point of it is to get UP TO 100fps, because g-sync starts acting as v-sync once the fps gets beyond the refresh rate of the screen. so 100fps AND below, g-sync is going to make the experience much more enjoyable. i personally don't see a difference between 80 and 100fps. my...

    Dell U3415W discussion - 21:9 UltraWide (3440x1440)

    how's the backlight bleed on these nowadays? has there been a newer revision or something?

    Dell 27" 5K Monitor (5120x2880)

    well, i guess you have to account for the time to develop and test an overdrive circuit, i think the electronics are not made by the panel manufacturer, but rather by the display manufacturer. then housing, quality control, etc etc etc etc i don't think it's THAT simple :)

    32"@4K affordable class: Acer B326HK, Asus PA328Q, BenQ BL3201PT

    i was asking because i had previously the BenQ BL3200PT, but i returned because of the banding problem, once seen, cannot be unseen :) i really liked the 32" size in combination with 2560x1440 even for gaming. now i have a swift, but i will probably try another one of those benqs from the...

    32"@4K affordable class: Acer B326HK, Asus PA328Q, BenQ BL3201PT

    how is the downscaling to 1440p on the BenQ? in terms of future proofing a bit, since i don't have a rig that could push 4k in games, i would have to play them in 2560x1440, but not if they look shitty :D

    Benq BL3200PT (32" 1440p)

    well, the question is when/if they use it in the monitor

    Benq BL3200PT (32" 1440p)

    did you notice when it was manufactured? i am still thinking about buying it, i had two of them last year and both had the banding problem. i am wondering if they fixed it with the mfg date of jan 2015....
