It is a bit distracting at first in terms of FPS games and getting used to using the peripheral vision a bit more but once you're comfortable it's great. The immersion level is fantastic, which is great for FPS as well. Once adjusted to the wider view my eyes were treating the scene a bit more naturally and I feel like I'm more aware of movement/muzzle flash/glare, etc. Mind that this is just my experience with ultrawide, displays are such a subjective tech in many regards.
There's a display similar to mine in 1440p 34" that's looking rather nice and the price isn't too rough on the wallet. This display did confirm for me that I'm a 21:9 fan, so all future display purchases for the foreseeable future will be in this aspect ratio. #
You summed up my experience with my Dell U3415W nicely. It takes some adjusting but in the end I found it to be very pleasant to play on even at "just 60Hz". The level of immersion I got with it was unreal.
However, there are some downsides to 21:9. Some game developers treat 21:9 like it's a wallhack and will refuse to support it because it's "unfair". I'm looking at you, Blizzard.
Other games simply don't support it, but you can usually
fix it through the .cfg file. The black bars can be annoying in movies / videos / cutscenes, unsupported games, and 16:9 scaled UI may bother some.
Wait until Black Friday / Cyber Monday to decide what you want. I'm sure LG will have some of their 3440x1440 monitors on sale for ~$650.
Unfortunately we won't see the X34 or PG348Q under $1,000 new for quite some time, if ever. I want more Hz but paying an extra $500+ for more Hz is hard to justify.
