Like others have said, it comes down to preference. If you can't decide, just flip a coin. For me, after using ultra wide, I can't go back to anything else. The immersion and multi tasking... And in terms of compatibility, I play a lot of the aaa titles, and so far I have never had a problem (i.e. all have had native support).

Yes shilka you are true but i dont categorize indie titles under AAA anyway, so i dont expect every indie game to have UW support. But again, with a few fast google searches i have read that there are ways to tweak the games and play in UW without a problem. Its going to be a hassle but i am willing to trade some time to make indie games work if that means i get to enjoy the UW on everyday use and work for my university ( mostly programming, where the extra screeen real estate will be very usefull ). You see whats happening ? lol Im changing my opinion 3 times a day. @farmdve you are 100% right. And in the end with IPS bleeds and bla blah bull**** it depends entirely on luck whether i get a non defective monitor or not. My 2 choices then are the xb271hu and pg348q. Just gonna flip a coin between those 2 then xD

Btw do we have any news on new monitors that are going to be 2k UW 144Hz + ? Have read something about some coming late 2018 that will have the latest g sync module. Worth waiting for them ?

The Acer Predator X34P is 120 Hz and thats the fastest i could UW i could find
60 to 120 hz is very noticeable but 120 to 144 is not super noticeable unless you are looking at them side by side

Yep I know about the x34p. As far as I know both Asus and Acer are coming with 2k UW at 144+ hz late 2018 or Q1 2019 . Was wondering if waiting for that was worth it instead of getting now 100 or 120hz monitor.

You can tell if you are looking at 120 hz and then 144 hz or the two side by side
From a 60 hz most cant tell if you are looking at 120 or 144 hz all most can tell its better than 60 hz

LG, see Blue Devils ultrawide monitor thread. Something like 950G is the code of it.

Now thats what im talking about :3 Sweet. Will be patient for a while and look into the upcoming monitors, id rather wait a couple of months than spend 1.000 right now and regret my impatience after 2 months.
