I dunno if I should just bite the bullet on a X35 ($899) or Z35P for 20hz more. I just hate Ultrawides though so I'll wait for this LG since Newegg is offering extended holiday returns.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from ultrawides. They're great when they work but the thing is they don't work ALL the time. I just bought the Omen X35 earlier this year and I'm already going to ditch it in a few weeks time.

To be fair, Samsung's model has no working overdrive. Any attempt by Asus should be better, in theory.

Are you having issues with games not supporting 21:9? Or something with the X35 specifically?

I'm worried about game compatibility and YouTube black bars. I'm also not the ideal user for the form factor when it comes to desktop/productivity because I do only 1 task at a time so whatever real estate gained over a 27 would be wasted.

For example, I don't do the throw a twitch stream on the left side and pretend to watch with a browser on the right thing. I'll do one or the other.

Edit: I asked Newegg about the ETA on this LG and they said the date was pushed by LG as they haven't even supplied any product yet.

I hope you guys that get it make some small review of it here. Seems like LG did not sent out any review units at all and the release in EU is like in February or later..

Just too bad, hard to spend $1000 for an unknown product. LG Canada is not even listing the model rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif I will send them email about it if they are planning on selling it in Canada and when.
I would love upgrade my 32" 32LG450 1080p display. I know most of you hate low rez at that size, but I got use to it. It is IPS panel with full 4:4:4 chroma support and I run it at 75Hz. I think 32" at 1440p would be perfect size. wink.gif

It's game compatibility with 21:9. If every game worked with ultrawide out of the box then that would be great but obviously that cannot be the case. Sometimes you'll be able to do a .ini edit or apply some community made patch in order to get the game working with ultrawide but eventually having to do this over and over again even for the newest releases gets old. And some games simply have no fix at all and you have to live with it, which makes the ultrawide wasted in that case. I guess you could say I'm over my "honeymoon" phase with ultrawide and now just looking forward to 40 inch 4k120hz.

That's my ideal size and refresh rate too (40/4K/120hz+) but I don't see it happening at a reasonable price for another 1+ years so I need a place holder in the mean time.

Yeah 32 inch 1440p is definitely a good placeholder till then instead of ultrawide imo.

The XG32VQ Strix is actually an AUO VA panel, not Samsung. Would be interesting to see how it performs vs. the CHG70 panels currently out.

If that's the case then there's hope.

Edit: NVM, it's likely the same panel used on the Viotek GN32LD which was a blurry mess compared to even the CHG70 I had side by side.
