So heres my question, did anyone here order the XB271HU...get it, end up sending it back for an X34 and found the X34 to be the better overall purchase?

As a XB270HU's owner since launch, I can tell you that if I played X34' lottery for 2 months, it's because I think 21/9 is a far better game experience. It was quite painful to return back to XB270HU everytime I had to send X34 back.

But as I said, I'd advise you to wait at least until PG348Q or forthcoming new LG 21/9 freesync displays are out.
Until then, XB271HU is a really good monitor to play with, especially when you didn't experience 21/9 34' yet.

Really, I could easily deal with 3-5 dead pixels for a scanlines free panel.

But the thing is currently I sort of cant keep the 271 and still plan for the new monitors you suggested. I can keep the 271, and just roll with it for a couple years or return this and either hold my money til the new stuff comes out, or I can buy the x34 and see how that wows me.

And the problem I have with waiting for new stuff is like, I'm sure when those drop and if there are issues people will advise to "wait for ___" which would come out in the fall or something, like the cycle just never seems to stop with PC parts so I sort of have to just throw down and hunker in somewhere.

What my dilemma is mainly is how much of a wow factor is the X34 over the 271, and if my 980 ti SC can run it at least as well as it ran games using my previous 1440p monitor.

Can u buy one on Amazon and compare it side-by-side with the xb271? Then just keep the one u like more and return the other. It's not a given that you'll prefer 21:9. I personally prefer 16:9 (although 21:9 is definitely awesome, too)

I understand but the difference here is that PG348Q should be available in 3 weeks.
What you can do is to send XB271 back and try X34 on Amazon and if by any chance you win the lottery, so you won't need to pay attention to PG348Q.
Otherwise, if you're not satisfied, then you should be allowed to return your X34 and ask an exchange for the Asus one.

Problem is, how far you can go with Amazon but I think it should be ok.

A single 980ti (1550/3800) can handle Witcher 3 everything maxed (with some graphic modes) 55 avg at 3440x1440 and 40-50 fps in vegetation areas of GTA5 (MSAA 2X, grass ultra, advanced everything ON and 70% extended distance scaling.
(This is with 5960X / Rampage 5 / 32Gb)

This is relatively low FPS but Gsync is working great for these games.

980ti should be plenty enough for this year and you may upgrade when high end Pascal comes out if you need to. (Q4 2016 / Q1 2017 ?)

I think I've just been sold on it, did a youtube search and checked some videos of thr x34 running with a single 980 ti and I'm impressed.. I think jumping up in size in general will simply feel right overall coming from a pretty nice monitor.. Plus the x34 being able to do 100hz I think with gsync is pretty solid

With what you guys been sayin and those vids, I think I'm definitely sold

That type of thread is few and far between lol. If you were to go over every monitor with a fine tooth comb, you'd find flaws in every one. Heck look at how expensive OLED TV's are and they have a TON of flaws, that doesn't stop people who want them from buying them because they are by far, the best PQ you can get. This is the first type of monitor like this out, there will be issues, some will be a big deal, some will be personal preference whether they can be lived with. It's an expensive monitor but that doesn't mean it's going to not have issues just because it's expensive, thats something people don't seem to get. It's easy to return it and go with something else if the issues can't be lived with.

I get that, and I know that just about every product will have flaws. I just go by how I feel after certain threads....sometimes a thread either gets you pumped or it leaves you feeling a little let down, this thread just didn't pump me up...doesn't mean that I'm not pumped to try the monitor nor did it mean that there aren't folks here that's help me make my decisions. But reading other reviews say on amazon and newegg, in general just left a more positive feeling for me. Not saying that in a negative way, just that the folks here had issues and reported them and dicussed them a little more than I would of hoped to see visiting the thread, that's all.

But I'm gonna snag the monitor and go from there, ive seen enough now from vids and other positive posts that I'm gonna try it out here once I get my refund from amazon in a couple days.

I think you will love it. I was on the fence about 21:9 and honestly had no intention on even getting this monitor.... Then I saw a samsung 34" 21:9 at my local PC store, tried it out and bought the monitor that day. It's really awesome. JC3, Squad, BF4 etc, they just shine in 21:9.
