No problem, it happens sometimes since I am not native English and sometimes I can write something that looks different from what I actually meant. I changed conclusion a bit to make sure that everyone understand that by saying 'no G-sync' model I mean no LG G-sync model. Also removed specific model names of Asus and Acer monitors, I agree they are no needed there. As for information about them, I think there are enough customer reviews and forum threads in web about those monitors and their quality issues and there is no need to point anyone to them since they are very easy to find, and if someone found this thread, he can find others too.

This Acer you mentioned... If someone cares about low framerates support with FreeSync, he need hack it anyway since 48-75 Hz is still high, so there is no really a big difference here, if someone is bothered with low framerates support then 48 FPS is still to high. Slight differences in contrast ratio is also not an argument for taking risk with faulty monitor instead of getting quality one that known for its exceptional quality compared to competition.

Its not like I am LG fanboy or something, I just had very hard time with finding quality ultrawide, returned or exchanged few of them, and then got even more discouraged after making wider research and seeing that even terribly expensive in Poland Acer and Asus models have even more issues than much cheaper ultrawides I had before and returned, but this LG model saved the situation and this is why I am doing those reviews or forum thread, I want to share my experience and recommend quality product from manufacturer that really listened to feedback and addressed a lot of issues, while others are still making terribly faulty monitors and are not improving. First LG ultrawides were also garbage with extreme issues, but they improved and I am giving them credit for that because other manufactures didn't improve.

I have updated my review on Linus forum with info about picture burn-in (I believe this is how it is called) that sometimes occurs on 34UC98. I added it only now becuse this effect does not occur often in my daily usage so I had to get some experience with it to be able to review it properly.

I wrote something like this, if someone sees some mistakes or there is some better term to describe this issue, please correct me:
Quote:
Image burn-in sometimes happens. Disappears after a minute or so, but may be a problem for software/content creators or someone who switch between white and dark content over and over. This however occurs only with high contrast simple "back on white" pictures like websites, not an issue in movies, games or with any other "advanced" or dynamic pictures

I believe image retention would be a more appropriate term.
Burn-in is a permanent condition.

Thanks. I also saw 34UC88 somewhere for $799, it was few weeks ago. I am not from US so I am not checking those prices often.

Keep hunting for good prices, 34UC98 may not get much cheaper because of this overpriced Thunderbolt connection, but 34UC88 will go down with price for sure. In Poland it is already cheaper than Dell U3415W.

So, if I understand correctly, this monitor is NOT overclockable over 60Hz on an Nvidia GPU?

CPU: i7-6700K | GPU: EVGA GTX 1050Ti | RAM: 16GB 2666Mhz DDR4 | SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 120GB | Mobo: ASUS Maximus VIII Hero | PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 850W G2 | Case: Fractal Design R5 | Keyboard: CM Storm Novatouch TKL | Mouse: MX Master | Microphone: Blue Yeti Blackout | Headphones: Sennheiser HD598 | DAC/Amp: FiiO E10K | Monitor: BenQ XL2720Z | TV: LG 42" LED 3D TV

It is overclockable, but factory 75 Hz works only with FreeSync enabled. I mentioned one youtuber reported 81 Hz overclock, but forgot to say on what GPU. He was using 980 Ti.

Also there is one user in this thread mentioning his successful overlock on GTX 970 SLI:

I am planning to get this monitor now and am probably going to be getting an AMD R9 390X to replace my GTX 980 so I can use FreeSync on the monitor! biggrin.gif

I'd suggest to wait with GPU purchase until June and see what Polaris brings, there should be something of 980/390X performance for around $330 and you will also have much less heat to deal with, which mean much better noise levels, and probably some overclocking headroom that 390X does not have at all.
