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

Like he said and I said yes it was probably either used or a return of some kind to amazon because it didn't have the original packaging. I also got it for give or take ~$550 after taxes and stuff which is well worth no packaging I say!

For those of you who are still looking for monitor, you can get 88 model for 699 on ebay through Adorama store just FYI. I got one today in the morning...

But what I wanted to ask is following: How usefull is G-sync/freesync if you can keep your framerate at 60hz+ continuosly? Does it make diference? Because my rig can handle the titles I play 60+ easy. Thank you smile.gif

Whole point of G-sync and FreeSync is eliminating or rather reducing negative effects and unstable FPS and FPS drops, so you no longer have to keep rock steady FPS at your refresh rate to get smooth experience and you can drop but ~10-15 without noticing it that much, while without G-sync/FreeSync dropping by 15 FPS from refresh rate, for example from 60 FPS to 45, completely breaks gaming experience. But if you can keep constant FPS at your refresh rate or above and use v-sync then G-sync/FreeSync becomes much less beneficial, if at all. Still it is good to have it in case you play some very demanding or poorly optimized game that cannot keep stable FPS no matter how good your PC is, there are many games, especially MMOs, that are limited by old engines, not being able to utilize more than one CPU core and etc, and then you can have i7 clocked at 4.8 GHz and the fastest GPU and you will get unstable performance anyway. Nobody can run all games at stable 60 FPS, many games are just not even close to proper optimization.

It's only Freesync for this monitor, so only AMD GPUs benefit from it. It helps a lot when your minimum FPS drops to 40-50 and you will retain smoothness instead of getting a choppy image. Having constant 60+ FPS won't benefit from Freesync too much, but it is still a better option to have than to compromise with the added input lag of V-Sync.

I bought the 34UC88 last month and I have been very happy with it! I did come from a Qnix, so I was already used to 1440p with an overclocked 120Hz refresh rate, but the transition from 120Hz to 75HZ wasn't too bad for me. I currently have Freesync set to 40-75Hz and I can report that overclocking to 80Hz for an AMD GPU also introduced frameskipping, which leads me to believe the UC88/98 are maxed at 75Hz. Technicalities aside, movies/media content that support 21:9 look seriously good on the monitor and games are way more immersive with the wider FOV and curve. The resolution estate almost made me ditch having a secondary monitor, but it's still nice to have something full screen on the UC88 and a chat/voice + browser on a secondary.

One thing I've noticed is that my bottom corners have bad backlight bleed but was vastly improved using Kryzch's method of inserting some thicker paper (business cards are good for this) on the bottom bezel. The colors were pretty washed out until I started using the ICC profile for the Dell U3415W, but even the Dell ICC profile looks a bit biased towards red and is dimmer than I prefer. If anyone has a calibrated color profile to share with us, that would be highly appreciated. thumb.gif

You can try to play with RGB settings in your monitor's OSD and lower Red setting a bit if there is too much of it for you in Dell's profile. There are also some options for gamma, black adjustment, and some further color adjustment that allows you to control 6 colors, so you should be able to adjust.

If not then other ICC profile, this time created specifically for 34UC98, is available in description of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L4HXj8dqeU&feature=youtu.be I didn't like it because colors are too bright and this monitor is already too bright for me even on 0% brightness, but maybe it will be suitable for you.

Thanks, I'm going to try the ICC profile from the YouTube description!

I navigated through the Picture options and never realized that I had gamma 0 turned on, hence why the colors looked washed out. After turning gamma off, everything looks way better even without any ICC profile applied.

Ya know I thought the same thing with my UC97! I'll have to check and see if my gamma 0 on and see if it helps any!

I also noticed that turning gamma off gives me better calibration results. If anyone is interested, you can compare my current result below (gamma off) with my previous results (gamma 2) on page 8.





Monitor settings:
Brightness: 12
Red: 51
Green: 41
Blue: 46

If by any chance, anyone knows how to turn off the breathing light when I turn off my computer without powering down the monitor? Power LED is already turned off under General settings. I am afraid of breaking the joystick and would like to leave it untouched as much as possible.

I have a small room and my computer is right next to my bed, the breathing light literally shines right into my eyes stun.gif
