Considering it's the same price as an LG OLED TV (HDMI2.1 4k120:444, Asynced)... I really don't see the appeal of these expensive let alone curved LCD ultrawides especially when it's a widened 27" only not even a 38" with 1600p height.

Which one you talking about? As far as I know, there aren't any 4k tv's that can do 120hz+ without subsampling, and with the same pixel density per inch as monitors, and the same input lag, etc etc. If there were, do you think people would still be spending a ton on monitors? In my opinion, one ultrawide for gaming and one normal monitor in portrait is the perfect setup, thats just me though.

because the gpus to properly drive those don't genuinely exist yet & space.

i expect there to be a minor stirring in the market after the new console drop, thus another reason why I'm not jumping on the CX line right away.

hopefully we get some genuine 4K120 desk panels. Instead of having to rebuild the desk around a TV.

I ended up with an AW3420 for now, as I couldn't bring myself to spend more on sub 4K tech

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I have been using my ACER XV34OCK 34inch 1440p @ 144hz (non-curved) for about 1.5 months and the motion clarity is superior to my MG279Qs which are 144hz IPS panels. It makes sense that newer panels surpass older ones but @ $379 on discount from Microcenter and $550 when sold regularly, I don't see why anyone is purchasing the overpriced LG and Alienware options. Regardless, enjoy your new baby.

The LG B9 and better and other OLED TVs too probably are 4k120:444 the 444 means full color no 422 or 420 subsampling on source necessary. These are HDMI2.1 so the limitation is not the TV but your GPU that can't send to the TV 4k120:444 because it likely only has HDMI 2.0 and you need a new GPU which so far are not really on consumer market nor are adapters from DP. These are popular for those who want to buy a TV or want a high end big TV for monitor use. Though in US LCD TV sales were still more popular than OLED, coz I don't know, people dumb. In EU it's the other way around, OLED TV more popular than LCD TV. Or so it's been reported.

The LG B9 costs around 1k USD/EUR, checked it earlier today again.

The cheaper ultrawides with flat panels make way more sense and there are now those options in last year. Such as the mentioned Acer which has it's own thread here too. These are not top of the line models, granted but they are so damn close and cost 1/2 or less even but more importantly are not ruined with a curve.

So yes 4k120:444 does exist in TVs at least in LG OLED B9+ but because TVs are HDMI not DP you need HDMI2.1 to be able to send 4k120:444 because well HDMI is inferior to DP in almost every specification at the same time of coexistence.

LG OLEDs currently have a black level bug when VRR is enabled.


Basically turning on VRR will turn your OLED black levels into IPS black levels. Not to mention there's other bugs as well.

I'm interested by your feedback. I was considering buying this monitor. I currently have the Acer Predator XB271HK. I really want a curved monitor. I've heard that it's awesome and changes everything.

Well, after a few days with it, it is incredible! Zero stuck pixels, the colors are amazing with very little and acceptable BLB, overclocks to 160hz at 3440x1440p. I am freaking impressed as hell to be perfectly honest. $1000 ain't cheap, but you get what you pay for, a premium monitor at a premium price.
