Also the OSD menu are faster and the buttons has a new look and placement.
The problem with x34 is that you still has the risk to get hold of a old batch with all freaking bugs.

Believe i have to see one of them before i decide how much curve i want smile.gif

is that for real ? boy would I be pissed after paying $1.3K mad.gif

It's real. Check out the x34 thread. People sometimes went through 5 panels to get a decent one.

I have the Acer Predator x34 and I love it. I can't go back to 16:9 anymore. Honestly I have never had any problem with the UI in games. Maybe you are sitting too close to the screen tongue.gif ?

Yes, the vast majority of them have been just fine. As said, there have been some people who were really unlucky in the past.
This is why you buy from Amazon, free (fast) shipping to and from your home if you have any issues, unlike Newegg.

I would imagine these would go on sale next month for Black Friday if they can get enough of them ready. I've seen new for ~$999-1100 and refurbished ones for $699.
If not I will go with the PG279Q or similar.

It is not fuss Vega. Some of us did not have money to buy 1,3k USD monitor (which is 2,5 good salaries in my country) and now when we have money we don't want to pay that much for MAYBE 100Hz, medicore OSD, MAYBE there won't be scanlines, MAYBE there won't be coil whine, very poor monitor movement on stand etc. If there is upgraded version around corner- why buy worse one?

No all of us are rich smile.gif. I wish I could just order 5 of them and choose best one (X34) but both me and my wifes savings would not be enough smile.gif.

So for folks from poor countries like me it is best to be patient and wait for the best. Same with 1080Ti.... 3 salaries for Titan Pascal? No thanks smile.gif

I decorated room, bought good furnitures, painted walls, I will be buying new desks, wall paintings, new doors, swapping some hardware in PC- and all of that for still less cost than one X34 or Titan Pascal smile.gif.

I am willing to wait to maybe really get something I pay for and save for long.

"4K or 21:9"? Certainly 4K, why it is even a question?
post #27 of 44
You're the first person in this thread to recommend 4k, so there are actually ~24 posts worth of questions wink.gif

I was considering 4K 32" vs Ultrawide 1440p but after using XB271HU for so long I just can't, absolutely can't go back to 60 fps gaming. Like even 75 vs 60 is like night and day and 90-140 is absolutely butter smooth experience.

Also you need a lot less power to power up 75+ fps on X34 that you'd need for 4K 60 fps.

So- less money, more fps and of course- ultrawide just looks awesome and adds immersion with its curved wide screen.



However- if I could get 4K 100hz G-sync VA/IPS 32-40" monitor I would maybe grab that rolleyes.gif

Yeah, no.

Because personal preference and use case is important.

One is not better than the other.

Having said that; I'm partial to 21:9 as I'm a flight sim nut and driving sim nut. 21:9 is PERFECT for those uses.

Also an RTS nut like Total War, Supreme Commander and some old school Kroger's war gaming (hex grid). I find 21:9 to be peerless for those uses.

What stinks is there is no guarantee (besides 100 Hz) that some of those other problems are corrected. Can I ask what country are you from?
