So I finally got a 34" ultrawide. I went for the one Newegg had that was refurbished and discounted through eBay. Just $239, but no freesync. Here are my thoughts. The resolution at 1080p is fine with me. Looks very clear compared to my 1080p 32" Samsung HDTV I was using. The ultrawide is pretty cool, but honestly not as exciting to use as people make it seem. It's just a borderless dual monitor setup. With dual monitors, you can snap windows to the center of each screen as well as the outside edge. On this, you have to manually slide windows around inside the screen to make them fit(you can snap them to the outside). Not sure if that is a help or actually a hindrance from a productivity standpoint. Possibly there are some better features in windows 10 as I am just digging into that. I keep wanting to pull the corners towards me because they feel far away, but you can't without making the other side worse. Having a curved screen would have avoided this, but I didn't know and it was twice the money. It also isn't as big as people make it out to be. I guess if you were using a single 22" monitor or similar it might feel that way, but coming from a 32" TV it feels a tad small. I was thinking that 38" might be better but I'm not spending $1000 on a monitor. People talk about how much more immersive gaming is but it didn't make me feel any more into the game than before. Playing CS GO, it was actually distracting due to trying to scan so much more screen and I would miss the people in front of me. Playing Crysis 2 wasn't any better than before. If anything, it's hard to get used to seeing more on the screen to process. Perhaps not being able to see more enemies is a help to focusing on what you are trying to do. I've not used it for hours yet, but what I have used it for it has left me feeling it isn't really what I want. I might keep it or I might send it back. It isn't a terrible monitor, it just isn't exciting. If I send it back I might try a curved model. That might help with some of my issues, however, that'll be a while since I was pushing it right now to buy this at $240. I just bought an Oculus and RX 480 for over $800. My wife is giving me the stink eye for seeing more boxes show up.
