List of the best ultrawides?

Hey all, I am looking for an Ultrawide monitor before I get Red Dead 2, But I will be waiting till the Steam release so december I have until to do research, Is there a list I could look at for ultrawides? Do the new IPS ultrawides have less glow than the old x34's and Acer predator's 100hz?

If your talking about the 34inch 1440p, its the LG 34gk950f. Suppose to have no blb issues, 144mhz and is G-Sync Compatible.

TFTC reviewed a few of these overpriced monitors. Might as well consider OLED TV at those prices.

I tried 3 of the 34gk950f models. All three had the worst blb issues of any uw's I tried. Never found a good one and gave up.

consider OLED @ the $700 price mark?

I know some of the LG OLED series goes below $1,000 a piece, but I didn't realize they were still favorable for gaming.

^^ why i'm on a second hand asus 10bit 60hz 4K atm. Amazon got tired of me cycling widescreens, so I settled with this & got half my loot back. Not sure why the original owner returned this screen, its way more uniform than any of the widescreen samples I had.

only way to do wide screen is 3x non-wide screen monitors,

otherwise full size 4K it is for me.

The whole 1440p ultrawide group seems to have this issue. Can't do much when the panel maker is only LG. I have the alienware 3418dw and i'm not happy with the blb it has (already exchanged once). However, I haven't been on my computer much for the year I've owned it so I let it go. I'm going 4K120 OLED TV next time around. It's better choice for multipurpose role(TV, streaming, consoles and 4k PC Gaming) now that some(more) are G-Sync compatible and Hdmi 2.1 is standard.

^^ in the same boat with pretty much everything in my system.

this dinky 16 lane i7, busted 1080tis, and a second hand 4k with (idk the correct term) but its almost like I can see the dimming between backlighting? idk. Been switching my gaming hours away. StarLink is an awesome time sink, I haven't even cracked the seal on Dragon Quest, or Xeno chron yet. That's another 200-400 hours right there, which is easily a year of gaming for me right now.

As far as I remember the newer "better" ultrawides with 120Hz+ native are a $1500-2000 or there about.

pg35vq 2800 EUR
AW3420DW 1200 EUR
and around 1000 EUR for those LGs.

And you can find the OLED TVs from 1000 EUR. So yes I would say it's quite comparable in price while it may not be in other aspects.

Depends what you play, how far you sit, what FOV you use and can set at most, etc.
