[rant] I just got an asus mx34vq which is a VA curved ultrawide and was thoroughly disappointed. Viewing angles were terrible. The contrast shift made everything look hazy and desaturated. I had to move back at least 3.5 feet just for everything to look somewhat normal, and even further if I wanted the deep blacks. I don't know how people are suppose to sit in front of it at a desk and have the curve wrap around their vision. At a moderately close enough distance for "immersion" it just looks plain awful. The deep blacks are dirty white uneven glows. Even the image right in the center head-on has poor contrast. You HAVE to sit like 4 feet away. The monitor looks beautiful when the screen is off and you can admire the sleek design and frameless look. [/rant] So now I am officially done with all manner of VA. I am tempted to get one of the 28" samsung TN monitors as IPS also suffers from terrible viewing angles, at least for people who abhor IPS glow. I am still hoping that there is a low glow and tolerable relatively large IPS monitor that won't drive me batshit. 32UD99? Something else??
