    1080p75hz vs 1080p144hz vs 1440p75hz vs 4k60hz

    Hey guys, help me choose between a 1080p75hz ultrawide monitor, a 1080p144hz (not ultrawide) monitor, a 1440p75hz (not ultrawide) monitor and a 4k60hz (of course, not ultrawide) monitor. Just to mention, these are the monitors available to buy where I live (there aren't no 1080p120hz, 1080p144hz...

    Nixeus NX-EDG34 preorder?

    Anyone have any thoughts on the NX-EDG34 coming out end of month? 34" VA panel. 3440x1440. 144hz. Freesync 2. 4ms response time. 1500r curve? I've no experience with Nixeus but at $550 it seems one of the best budget options in this category provided the response times are adequate and the...

    $799 LG 34GK950F-B 34" 21:9 WQHD 144Hz FreeSync2 - Amazon

    https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0798Q8KG4/ I've been eyeing this monitor recently and it's back down to $799 on Amazon. 3rd party seller but fulfilled by Amazon so looks like it's covered by Amazon's free return policy? Any predictions for Black Friday deals on this or similar ultrawides or is...

    Need help choosing a 49" Ultrawide (3 choices)

    I want to buy a 49” Ultrawide monitor to use for general productivity. I watch videos and play the occasional game but mostly do work so prioritise productivity over entertainment. It would be great if I could get some advice on the best option from the three I’m looking at. Especially as there...

    Eye-strain with new monitor - how did you deal with it?

    So, here's an unexpected update: in the past few months, I've been getting insane eye-strain, to the point that it's been making it hard to work home. I switched to an LG 29WK600 back in October 2018 (and I really liked it too), but I soon started to get dramatically worse discomfort. I don't...

    34" UW vs. Dual Setup

    Hi, I have a budget of ~$1,000 for my monitor setup. I'm debating between the Dell AW 34" Ultrawide or a dual 27" monitor setup. I plan on using these for photo/video editing and gaming on the side. The allure of the AW 34" is its ability to reproduce color fairly accurately while offering a...

    Need some help with display timings/blanking intervals to move a tear off-screen

    Heyo! I am in need of some help regarding monitor timings/blanking intervals. Specifically, how to move the blanking interval. Because right now instead of the frame starting at the top/bottom of the vertical area, its starting/ending in the middle. Resulting in an image like this...

    Quantum Dot display, or just a regular IPS or VA?

    Anyone here has experience with QLED monitors? I've been looking to replace my 40" 4K TV/monitor and I'm gearing up for black friday. I'm considering a 29WK600 because some games refuse to scale properly at 21:9 within my giant 16:9 monitor. However, it'd be no better than my current panel, only...

    How Wide is too Wide?

    The good folks over at PC Perspective have just put out a nice review of the new Samsung C49HG90 49 inch FreeSync 2 monitor and they are asking whether or not it's just too wide. The monitor sports a 32:9 aspect ratio instead of the more widely used 21:9 ratio of other UW monitors. It's curved...

    About to pull the trigger... 34UM68 sale... Should I?

    I know. 34" 1080p. But it's only $316, the closest to it's $300 black friday price. I use a GTX 1060 3GB, I'll never pull off 1440p with a decent frame rate. Ditto for 144hz unless it's really old games. I always game at 1080p, so 2560x1080p is not a stretch. I'm not thinking about...

    [Technical] Confused About Ultrawide Ratios - 1440x3440p is a few pixels too wide for the standard

    Here's something I thought about and it got me confused, interested and curious. So as you might know, 21:9 could also be simplified to 7:3, but it isn't simplified because it's not actually 21:9. It's more like 21.5:9. The real, true ratio of ultrawide is 64:27 (according to the internet)...

    VR need more power or gaming on Ultrawide?

    Ok, so here is my situation. I jumped on a deal for an RX 480 4GB that was 145AR and came with Doom that I plan to sell for another 15-20$, meaning I got an RX 480 dirt cheap. It just so happened the Rift dropped $200 a day later. I ordered the RIft and LOVE IT, as do my kids. After doing...

    HP Omen X 35

    Kind of surprised there hasn't been a thread on this yet. Since Acer's x34p seems to have fallen into limbo, the Omen X 35 seems to be the front runner for upcoming ultrawide monitors. G-Sync, 100hz native refresh rate (I think, anyway; can't remember where I read that). The price is nuts, but...

    Hello, I wanted ask for your advice on a new monitor I've purchased. This particular model is Dell U3417W Ultrawide.
