[Asus] PG35VQ - 35" Swift G-Sync, 3440x1440, HDR, 200HZ Display - Page 68

Waiting and waiting.... and then waiting some more. The price will be steep, that's for sure. In the meantime, my current monitor is perfectly fine for my personal use.

The wait is going to extend to at least Q2 2018.

I am going with the Alienware AW3418DW rather than wait until the end of Q2 2018 or sometime Q3 2018.

I picked up a Certified Refurb Acer z35p for $775 off Amazon. Got $300 for my old monitor so I basically got it for $500


It's working for me now until these things show up in 2019 after their eventual additional delays.

I will wait till Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ finally arrives. But it gets delayed more and more it seems. At least we will have Volta Titan to sport 144hz on this resolution by then.

Also HDR is a must. I have a LG 65C7 Oled TV and HDR is way better than for example 4k. Dolby Vision looks fantastic and I want it for gaming too.


2015?
We just hit five years since the first shipments of 1440p 120hz Catleap monitors (ok mine only goes to 110hz most of the time).

The display industry has been stalled at effectively the same level of performance for half a decade now.

Was excited at first for the Dell Ultrawide at 120Hz. However, the sole downfall for me was lack of blur reduction. Always thought that 100Hz limitation of 1440p Ultra Wides was the reason.

Took a few more years for the major companies to start offering 1440p 120Hz natively with all the goodies such as VRR, lower input lag and response times. I think the whole 3D era took the display industry for a weird turn, hence the "lack" of innovation, but it seems like we are currently heading to the right direction. I'm definitely a big fan of curved monitors and welcome high refresh rates with good color reproduction, low input lag and response times. I'm not convinced HDR will hit it off in 2018 quite yet and mainstream OLED is still a few years away. The PG35VQ and X35 will hopefully bring a higher standard with Ultrawides, but until monitors release with DP 1.4 or HDMI 2.1, it looks like the monitors themselves are bandwidth limited.

My 4 year old Qnix goes up to 120Hz at the cost of gamma shift that can be halfway corrected with a calibrated ICC profile. Doesn't look quite as good next to an LG 34UC88, but after a year of going from 120Hz to 75Hz then reverting back to 120Hz, gaming has become quite refreshing again (pun intended). That's why I'm anxiously awaiting for my Dell AW3418DW since it will be the best of both worlds for me.

Honestly why is the QC on panels so bad? Any you choose always has some major issue. If it's not backlight bleed it's ghosting, if it's not ghosting it's color accuracy, if it's not that then it's just a crappy stand. I really want a good all-arounder that won't make me feel buyer's remorse a month after the purchase. Is this too much to ask for?

Because people buy the cheapest product that ticks the boxes, which pushes manufacturers to sell on features and cut corners elsewhere. One place that gets cut is quality, since that's not something that you can easily market to people, and if you're a company that's particularly unscrupulous, you can just send out "golden sample" units to reviewers to lock in good reviews. Buyer doesn't know they've been screwed until they've already spent the money.

If you can get your hands on the Dell Alienware AW3418DW, it's actually proving to be a very good gaming Ultrawide. A lot less BLB than my LG 34UC88, but there is just very slight bleed at the bottom corners. No scanlines at 120Hz and is fluid with G-Sync. Stand is amazingly hefty (heavier than the monitor) and I like the RGB accents throughout the monitor/stand as it can be fully customizable or turned off completely. The only negative for mine is some IPS glow on the lower left hand side, so I'll see if I can exchange it. If not, it's only noticeable with the black bars when viewing 16:9 content. Monitor gets a solid 9.5/10 rating for me and I'll be happy to use it until OLED Ultrawides come out.

It's on sale for $999 in Dell at the moment and you may get some good chunk of money back via rebate sites (Ebates or BeFrugal - referral link). thumb.gif
