34'' 21:9 G-Sync or not? - Page 5

Chances are the first wave of OLED displays, like the Dell, won't have G-Sync and they will be 16:9 only.

Yeh we already know the new Dell is 120hz, but not gsync or freesync and is also £5000 and designed for professional use, that is very far from a 3440x1440 144hz Gsync OLED for under £1000, there has already been a 1080p Sony professional OLED monitor for years so its not completely new. It fine posting your opinion Xioros but its just wrong unfortunately... I wish your optimism was correct but using reasonable logic it is very unlikely.

x34 has overkill resolution for me mad.gif

Yeh but unfortunately it is one extreme or the other, 3440x1440 which is really nice but hard to run (although Gsync helps), or 2560x1080 @ 35" which is easy to run but low res and bad looking.

I think looking for a new monitor is not the right solution here. There is simply no product that does what you want.

Have you considered just hanging a Full HD TV on top of it?
24" is manageable if you're close and the TV is great for when further away.

It's also a lot cheaper. If the magical unicorn monitors arrives, you can always sell both and take the monitor.

I don't think it will take longer than 2 years before ASUS or an other brand comes up with an OLED G-sync display. Yes, you'll likely be dropping around 2 grand for it, but those prices will fall once supply increases.

Based on what though? Its a random guess... It is possible it will happen in 2 years though but I don't know how long it will take, it isn't anything to do with Asus or any brand, its when LG (or Samsung) decides to make a suitable OLED panel for a gaming monitor. I guess the 31.5" 4k 16:9 120hz that just came out would make a good gaming monitor, but a 3440x1440 would be better and easier to run as well.

So you are suggesting me to keep a smaller monitor?
Indeed i can buy cheap TV as 2nd screen monitor
What about XB217HU?

I ordered Z35 couple minutes before, i believe its the best choice i could do
x34 overkilled resolution and too many flaws
Z35, the choice of compromise
Hope i like it
Thanks for helping me
