Comfortably? 6 months

My guess is that it is an extremely popular option and people are buying them up quickly. Same thing happened up here in Canada and the US with the ROG Swift when it came out.

I know that the monitor is 3440 x 1440, which is a lot better than the 2560 x 1080 that one of the new Acers are planning to be even at 35 inches sheesh.

Yes I called it 4k and technically I'm not accurate. I was pointing out that anything under 4096 isn't technically 4k.

Either way, whatever it is officially called.. heck 3k? It is still an outstanding monitor and I'm enjoying it immensely.

2k would be closer

Not sure, it seems this has much more hype, not to mention newegg is the only place you can purchase. I've been waiting for 2 years, all I want is a display for fallout 4. Looks like I wont get it.

I would say while this has a lot of hype, there would be a lot more demand for the ROG as this monitor is still very niche compared to the ROG (which still isn't for everyone)

@brightail

Why do you keep saying this monitor is 4k? It's not 4k and never will be. 4k is 4096x2160. Uhd is 3840x2160. This monitor is ultra wide 2k which is 3340x1440. It is not 4k, again this is not a 4k monitor. Again... Not 4k.

A question for the multi monitor guys.

Did any of you end up keeping your old 16x9 next to this beast, or is it sufficient to cover all your needs by its lonesome ?

Dead horse has been beat.


For the other folks, Newegg will restore when stock is evident. Also you might keep an eye on the Acer page as they had it open for purchase for about an hour and then shut it down. I'm assuming after stock was depleted. Just going to have to fine a place you can either pre-order from or keep hitting refresh.

Having watched his previous monitor reviews, it was easy to see that this monitor would hit everything he has always wanted, 4k, non-TN panel, g-sync and a refresh rate 100hz. He obviously didn't have any monitor colour bleed and even went to say that using his software it could show over 98% of the possible colour spectrum, making it possible to use the monitor as a professional one. The refresh rate of 10.1 MS is expected with a monitor so huge. The gaming at 100hz and 4k is just a beauty to behold.

His negatives were price, no UMLB, and a little bleed, tho he said some bleed is not to be unexpected these days on monitors especially on monitors this size. He, like many of us wish that manufacturers will stop using glossy paint instead of matte finishes and he concluded saying that if someone wants to use this monitor on maximum settings they are going to need the GPU power to go with it. Finally he, like most of us, hates the on board controls ... EESH horrible.

Overall it is his new favourite monitor at least until Asus comes out with theirs, I'm sure. Being that Asus has the same panel, it will probably come down to presentation and price.. Asus NORMALLY has a better set of controls as well.

This is not 4k.

Whoops just saw a bunch of posts saying the same thing. tongue.gif

I've tried twice hooking up additional monitors and functionally use them along with my 21:9. In the long run Ive sold every additional display and ended up using 21:9. No matter how high quality monitor, 4k, qnix2710, hb270hu just (for me) wasn't necessary and took away from my immersion in games. So imo, yea 21:9 is big enough for all your needs until it isn't. If that makes sense.

I don't like Linus reviews. He always gets hand picked parts, always. He never gives bad reviews in fear of not receiving reviewable gear. (for free) He only tests for less than a day and you never hear any negatives only super hype.
