This is just a ballpark with a tape measure, so bear that in mind:

Full stand depth: ~13" (some of this is in front of the monitor, about 2-3", depending on how you adjust for the curve)
Depth of stand behind monitor: Around 6 1/2" to 7"

It's the second measurement I was originally referring to - the monitor naturally sits closer to you due to the stand design. I've gotten used to it, but that's still a lot of real estate that sits behind the monitor that can't really be used. Not a big deal if you don't work at your desk as I do, but I thought it important to point out since it's gonna take up almost half of your desk, plus a lot more if you run speakers next to it.

That said, I really like this monitor a lot. I hope more manufacturers move into this size and resolution.

I've only had one issue with it and I'm not convinced it is due to the monitor. After exiting out of a game (Grim Dawn) the display in Windows sort of flickered with every move of the mouse. Power cycling the monitor fixed it. Possibly a Freesync issue? Dunno, but I haven't seen it since.

I never owned the LG, however I did take a look at one at a nearby Fry's. The screen looked pretty good (always hard to tell in a Fry's) but what held me up was how cheap the plastic panels felt. They seemed to creak with every slight touch, much like the Samsung 34". Not that it matters once you have it in place, but I didn't much care for that. Given the weight of the monitor and the MSRP I would expect it to feel pretty damn solid. In comparison, the Acer is a tank.

Edit: I am now running an i7 5775C with an RX480 now, not the Pentium IGP as I had been earlier.

Is freeSync working correctly, cause i've read the 34Incher Samsung Quantum dot wider has freesync Problems. I wanted to get then 34incher Asus with Qi Charging, but it doesnt have VESA.
I guess im going to go with the x38, since i have no other choice.
