3440x1440 is basically as easy to run as 2560x1440. 4k is the biggest most worthless jump. I have all these. The only viable gaming 4k monitors out there are the 28 and 32 acer gsync models. All the others are just displays. Gaming on smart 4k and uhd tvs is absolutleu terrible. No offence to anyone, its my experience with 4k in general. Yes the image looks great standing still with not much motion but that's it.

For now I think 3340x1440 is where its at until DP 1.3

Prices have pretty much remained at $950-1100 CAD since launch up here for the Dell, so prices have remained stable.

I completely agree. Low motion resolution is very apparent on those big 4K TVs, I don't know how people game on them.

When they come out with a 40" 120 Hz 4K display, that will be something to get excited about.

Well that just sucks. Sorry. I'd sell them to everyone for $500 if I could. biggrin.gif

I want to chime in here with a couple of things I have opinions about after having used a 2560x1080 29" monitor for I think a year. It's great for alot of things, video editing and other types of productive work. in portrait reading articles is great (I never use it in portrait but have tried it.). watching widescreen movies. and certain games. I say certain games as I think for most games its not great. you have the on screen hud, in alot of games its not fully to the side, which looks awful. alot of slightly older games don't play nice. It's not that immersive as you think and it alot of times just blurs more or less on the sides anyway. It's also awful for streaming any type of media as there is no real content for it and Netflix doesn't stretch widescreen movies so you have black bars on the sides and the top! If you are a wallpaper junkie there are few good ones you can use. and if you record gameplay It's a pain if you want your videos to be in the same aspect ratio that everyone else has! I will be using mine as I don't have the money (or am willing to spend what I would need to be satisfied). I think alot of people here have rose tinted glasses on when it comes to 21:9. And I think a 21:9 monitor in portrait as a second monitor might be the best way to use one. to end this I know there are workarounds but it's a hazzle. It's unecessary work I shouldn't have to do to use my monitor.

Steam Link and stream to tv 😝
post #238 of 1126
I am thinking of getting the LG 34UM95C , is there still any problems with the model ? I already tried the curved version and its not useable for decent photoshop/webdesign work, especially not if you have to show clients. As soon as you dont look directly on the screen the lines are distorted (like footers of a web etc)...

So untill pascal comes out and more 32" 4K monitors I am thinking of getting this one... I hate dual monitor setups thats why frown.gif

Personally, I purchased my display knowing there would be minimal resolution support. I mainly got it to open more stuff side to side without going for multiple monitors. The fact that I only paid $550 also helped. tongue.gif IMO, if someone doesn't research before buying and isn't aware of the lack of content to take full advantage of 21:9, then they deserve all the frustrations they run into. Then again, I lack empathy for a lot of things so it might just be me being mean spirited. tongue.gif

The only thing I'm aware of is typical IPS bleed... might want to google it, but it's a flat monitor and the prices on them are fairly inexpensive. From everything I've read it's a nice panel.
