Nice monitor but not up to FreeSync 2 specs as far as I can tell. And once again they hide the refresh range (So infuriating) If I'm going to spend that kind of coin, I want LFC. Unfortunately AMD doesn't have any information on this monitor either.

According to AMD's site though, no 4K/UHD monitor has Freesync 2 or LFC (no the MX34VQ is not 4K/UHD) and only the two LG IPS 27" monitors even have HDR. Don't know how accurate the site is.

Actually the 27" Samsung does but it's 2K (2560x1440). It's also $500 which is still a bit pricey. At $350 I'll grab it. 2560x1440 would work well with Vega 56 or Vega 64.

I grabbed a 2560x1440p HDR 26" Dell IPS monitor for $200 that goes to 75Hz. So they are charging a $300 premium for that FreeSync which I think is a little pricey.


Samsung C27HG70 27" VA 2560x1440 48-144Hz (Displayport), 48-100Hz (HDMI) DisplayPort™, HDMI® Yes Yes Yes
Samsung C32HG70 32" VA 2560x1440 48-144Hz (Displayport), 48-100Hz (HDMI) DisplayPort™, HDMI® Yes Yes Yes
Samsung C49HG90 49" VA 3880x1080 48-144Hz (Displayport), 48-100Hz (HDMI) DisplayPort™, HDMI® Yes Yes Yes (I think this one is a typo...3840x1080 maybe)

So, I have this monitor- not because it's FreeSync, but because it was at the time a US$299 not-TN 31.5" 4k panel.

It's slick overall, but one should expect compromises at the given featureset and price:
  • It's not FreeSync2, and range looks limited- I lack appropriate hardware to test
  • HDR is only available on HDMI, but 10bit is available on DP, and can be enabled in Nvidia drivers
  • Uniformity of brightness isn't perfect, but not terrible
  • Scaling looked horrendous in W10, may try again later
Positives:
  • Contrast isn't bad, better than my Predator IPS (which would be expected with VA, but this is a cheap VA...)
  • Color looks good (I need to run it through with my Spyder5, so subjectively)
  • Had no problem running it on a Ubuntu Budgie desktop with a GTX970, including installing Nvidia binaries and playing modern Steam games
  • Had no problem hooking it up to my W10 box with 1080Ti, but have not gamed on it yet
Overall a good value for what it is.
