I refuse to run a synthetic demo just to look for problems that I can't ever see on a daily basis. Playing games and for general use my monitor is absolutely perfect and I could care less whether some oddball benchmark says it has a scanline when specifically searching for it.

Right on brother!!!

Sometimes I think we look for flaws on monitors instead of just enjoying them for the things we use them for everyday....

True- but sometimes the flaws are unavoidable.

I returned my X34. For the money, I should not have huge white glowing corners. I also think the desktop resolution is too small. My X99, I7, 980ti Hydro, SSD, 32GB, would run most games at 55-65FPS under high or ultra with this monitor. I'll stay at 1080p for now.

I went with the Z35 and am much happier now.

Well, Z35 price is also huge, but you get full 144Hz+ and better blacks smile.gif

I don't blame you for returning it. If you're not happy with it you're not happy with it. As I've mentioned before, this IS a lot of money.

One thing confusing me is you claim the X34 (3440x1440) did not have enough desktop resolution so you went with the Z35 (2560x1080) instead? Am I misunderstanding you?

I can run Primal 70-80, Witcher 3 70-80, Crysis 3 at 70-80. Of all my games i've tested, only MetroLL dipped below 60, Still very playable with G-sync. I've recently started Watch Dogs and it too gets 70-80 ultra with Txaax2 and MFAA from NCP. I was pleasantly surprised by this, I thought I would struggle frame rate wise. Now, if this rubbing regime I've started can actually help with the BLB., I will be golden.

I believe he is talking about the Windows icon size and smaller web page layouts due to the higher res. Which of course is easily fixed with a little adjustment.

No, I meant the desktop looks too small.

I tried adjusting the DPI for the desktop to 110% its normal size. Which helped. My OCD doesnt compute why Im paying for higher resolution only to tone it down.

I got used to it quickly, and now I find 1080p size is yelling at me. Even found an browser plug in to make you tube video size a bit bigger bigger which helps
