Returning 34inch ultrawide need adivce on new monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I have been gaming on a 27inch 1080p 144hz monitor for about 3 years now. I recently decided to upgrade and get something better. I decided to get the LG 34uc88-b after allot of research and its awesome QC. I knew that only a few people were able to overclock it passed 60hz with an nvidia card and do not haveany frameskipping but decided to give a shot anyway and see if I could win the lottery. The 34 inches @ 3440:1440 in ultrawide looks amazing in games and the panel as a whole is almost perfect little blb great QC. The only problem I have is that while I can overclock it 80hz I get frameskipping on anything over 60hz. Over the last 2 weeks I have been trying all types of games and I can not get use to 60hz. As long as I am getting over 60fps in games there is a bit of studdering and with vsync on there is some input lag. This I can kinda deal with as its not to bad but the motion blur in FPS is horrible sometimes compared to zero I was getting with my 144hz monitor. The big issue is if a game is very demanding and goes below 60 fps then there is massive studdering and input lag to the point where the the awesome 34 inch screen at 3440:1440 is **** and looks horrible and completely removes you from the immersion. That is the part that I can not deal with whatsoever. I have decided to return this panel and go back to the my old 27" 1080p 144hz monitor which sucks. I need some help with trying to figure out what would be the best monitor that has at least 100hz and if it has gysnc and better. I have already looked at the acer x34 and the asus pg348q and will not be getting either of those due to the horrible QC issues they have. I can not waste $1200+ on monitor that has all type of issues out the box. I am prepared to waste up to $850 on a new monitor. I will be keeping this monitor for a long time so it should be the best I can get for that amount. I would greatly apreciate it if most of you here can provide suggestions on what monitor would best for me? I am looking for a 27inch or higher with at least 120hz or more and if it has gsync even better. Thanks

Hi dentnu,

I have both Acer models Acer Predator X34 with G-sync and the Acer XR341CK Adaptive-Sync( Free-Sync) version. I am very happy with both of them. I am using one Asus R9 Fury X with no problems and my G-sync version 2 x Titan X in SLI.
I received both with little back light bleed, and yes this you will get it why because it is a IPS panel. I was able to rub around the edge of the both monitors and it seemed to help a bit. But again people are trying to get a top of the line $3k photo monitor out of these gaming first monitors it is just not going to happen. These were made for a GAMING etc.. I owned the LG 31MU97-B 31" Digital Cinema 4K IPS 4096 x 2160 (4K) which was awesome but could not game on it. You need to ask yourself what do you want to do first GAME, PHOTO EDIT/VIDEO etc..
I see way to many people buy these monitors and bring out there magnify glass to find problems when they should just enjoy the moment.

Now I have been thinking of getting rid of my Acer XR341CK Adaptive-Sync( Free-Sync) in my bedroom and my Samsung 55" 1080p tv and replace it with a new LG 4K Oled55c6p you can find the thread HERE. And never have to worry about Back Light Bleed again..

Hi thanks for the reply I plan only using my monitor for gaming and I the LG 34uc88-b is not for gaming in my case since I have an nvidia card. I would have been happy at 80hz overclock but it just can't do that. I have been gaming for 3+ years at 100 to 120hz with light boost hack enabled on my monitor so I get almost zero motion blur and as far as i can remember I don't think I had any studdering. I gave this monitor a chance but just can't get use to those 60hz with all the studdering and input lag when vsync enabled. I am going to return it. I have been doing a bit of research and really like the PG279Q I know it has a bunch of QC issues but going to go ahead and roll the dice and see if I win the lottery. Wish me luck

If u decide to go for the PQ279Q order it from amazon or someplace where RMA is great, so you can return it a few times without much hassle to get a perfect panel.
Personally I havent tried the PG279Q but, I`ve been using the PG278Q for like 6 months now and I am really happy with it thumb.gif
