I was torn between this and a 1440p monitor. Ultimately decided on more screen real estate at a lower resolution. All the reviews I've read are right - gaming on an ultra-wide, curved monitor is extremely immersive.

Beautiful Ultrawide Monitor. I bought this because I found a really good deal on it. Unfortunately its not 4k/1440p but it's still gorgeous. 144hz. I do wish it was gsync rather than freesynce but the upcharge for the g-sync equivalent was too much. I'm still debating on whether or not I should eventually upgrade to a g-sync monitor or just buy a vega gpu when it's released just to take advantage of freesync.

Got this goodie for $500 on amazon prime day. I love the look and feel of the monitor, but I find the red base plate somewhat annoying. I wish they hadn't added the red accent. Limits the overall consistency, but it isn't that noticeable. Performance has been great, and I love how wide it is. Doing work on this screen is awesome as you can have windows side by side no problem.

Once you go Ultra wide you don't go back great monitor for gaming and watching movies.

The resolution is not the best but the size compensates... ;)

This monitor is a really good value. I impulse bought it on Cyber Monday from BHphoto for $396 shipped. I wanted a large curved monitor vs two monitors as i'm not a fan of having a bezel in between my usable screen spaces. The 34inch monitor is super immersive - gaming is excellent - multitasking is excellent. The colors come through very well. My screen does have a little bit of bleeding however its a bit expected on these wide curved monitors. I am happy with my purchase considering the alternative to this monitor is hundreds of dollars more . I would have loved a 1440 but i just couldnt't justify the cost with having already spent so much on my PC build. The 1080 looks great though. My only real negative comment other then the screen bleed is that this monitor has a lot of glare. My setup is in a finished basement with standard basement lighting and i get a ton of glare. It could be my settings but with the 1080 its a bit expected.

The monitor is gorgeous. I know not all media will properly support 21:9 but so be it. Going to 144Hz over my previous 24" 60Hz Samsung is significant. My only gripe about the monitor is that it's not 1440p. To get the rest of what this thing offers and 1440p was pretty much an extra $200, and at this point cost was already getting to be more than I originally set out to spend.
