Well, I also saw some TN and VA monitors and I immediately noticed huge deacreasement in picture quality compared to IPS. What you choose depends on if you want to watch blank black screen or if you want to watch some more advanced pictures and animations where some actual colors matter biggrin.gif

Just got my 34UC98 from the Amazon Prime Day Warehouse sale! Honestly at first I was kinda nervous purchasing this monitor because I was trying to wait for a nice OLED monitors with high refresh rates to start coming out before I made the big purchase but the price I got this thing at couldn't be ignored so I ordered it. Couldn't be happier too this thing is freaking AMAZING! biggrin.gifthumb.gif





Sorry for the kinda bad picture quality.

It was one of their "Open Box Wearhouse Deals". It was down to $818 something I believe just from the open box then on Prime day you could take another 40% off that. So I got it for give or take $550 after taxes definitely worth it considering it seems to be in perfect conditioning I just didn't get the original box everything else came with it and seemed to be factory sealed which is well worth it to me. Also am I lucky being as there was only one available.

Shouldn't they specify from where this monitor comes and why it is without box and goes for such low price? If it is new, not faulty and has all accessories except the original box then why they cut price in half? Looks like too good to be true deal biggrin.gif

The newer 1900R panels supposedly have much less bleed than the older 3800R panel from the picture you linked.

Yea this one of reasons why 34UC88/98 are so much better than UC97 in terms of bleed. But still very most of ultrawides on the market are 3800R and there are very few 1900R ones, and only one 1900R in reasonable price, UC88 that is, so... Still what I said about almost all ultrawides being not usable because of bleed is true.

Yeah unfortunately all they say is "Used - Good; Item will come repackaged." It could be a box they got that was completely torn or banged up so they have to sell it as like a open box or it could be a return of one but it is sold and fulfilled by Amazon so returns are a breeze. I figured for that price I'd take the shot and then if it didnt work I'd just return it get my money back and it was no lose situation! Definitely worked out in the end, the monitor did come repackaged but it was in perfect condition and I cant see a damn thing wrong with it!

But curvature is too much, especially viewing from a distance.

Curverate helps with bleed and viewing angles from normal usage position. For viewing from distance there are TVs, not desktop monitors.
