I have a similar flat version of this screen, and love it. $209 on sale at Best Buy last year.

I use it with work laptop and home game tower every day...it's been OFF about 2 minutes since I got it.

Good stuff, Maynard!

I want a 34" 21:9 1440p curved AMVA with 120Hz+ and g-sync. Please, someone make this display

UPDATE: I looked into this and apparently AUO (they build the panels for Acer) is working on this exactly panel, @200Hz, and should be available in 2017. FreeSync and G-Sync are unknown at this time. They are also working on a 4K 144Hz panel that should come out around the same time in 2017.

Great price for an ok monitor. Could never go backwards to a large format 1080 panel, but for many people, this could be a decent option. I'm with Dantte - that's the monitor I'm looking for.

Low rez.... boring! Please - more 3440x1440 and 4K gaming monitor tests. Since I tried gaming on a 3440x1440 (21:9) I simply cannot go back to anything less than 2560x1440.

CORRECTION:

The opening paragraph says that 34' ultrawides are usually 3440 x 2160, but they are usually 3440 x 1440. The 2160 number is part of 4K, not ultrawide.

Can somebody explain the "curved monitor" thing to me with anything besides "because we can?"

Da Vinci pained the Mona Lisa on a completely flat surface. Van Gogh did not have a curved surface when he painted "The Starry Night." OK. I admit that the Michelangelo chose a curved surface when he painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

For me the curve makes sense due to screen width - i.e., you have a wider range to look at. The curve, when I have messed with them, helps with immersion and a wrapping feel rather than the distance from the center of the screen to the farthest edges being so dissimilar. I run 3 27" panels on an ergotech stand that allows me to have the outside two panels angled in making them almost all equidistant from the center panel (eye-to-panel distance). For me, it makes sense - to you? Maybe not so much.
