the problem is its a va panel and they just announced they will have updated models to these BFGD displays in 2020 so the prices should be even lower on these bfgd's by then.

30-32" would have been perfect.

well asus is making a 32 inch hdr 1600 4k @ 120hz display the problem is it will be like $3999-4999

JackCY I'm at 32" but for FPS games 27" would make more sense with the current state of games and monitor PPI without 4k. It's easier to adjust to FPS on 27" 1440p.

Ultrawides are sort of a different beast, a niche. 34" UW is 27" 16:9 and 38" is still smaller vertically than 31.5" 16:9. They may look like large panels in number but in reality they are not tall, only wide. And outrageously expensive on top of that, due to small volume and all.

They don't go and ask panel maker to make them a 32" or 40" or 45" OLED, LCD, anything really, they would have to pay for that and take a risk in it selling well. For monitors the market for 30-45" may not be as big, but then how could be when there are barely any monitors/panels made in that size. So they rather stick with the most popular 24 and 27" that they know will sell. If they want to make something big, they grab a TV panel and make a TV or try sell it as a "monitor".

27-30" is quite ideal for gaming at regular FOVs and 1440p. With over 30" you gotta start cranking that FOV up and hope for 2160p, or sit more far which defeats the whole purpose of a large screen.

Small TVs 30-50" are often some crappy panels, undesirable for a monitor.
Beyond 32" monitor panels are rare.

And a huge bulk of screens is in 5-20" for mobile, with OLED, high PPI, high refresh, almost have it all, refusing to use that tech (and the nice tech from modern TV panels) to make good monitor sized panels.

With these crazy prices it really doesn't make sense for anyone to risk making a great monitor panel in 30-45". We are barely getting into the 31.5" era for monitor panels, but still LCD.
At least go up to 32". At 32", the FOV isnt that bad and 4K would have made alot more sense than 27"
