This is pretty attractive monitor. I don't care about lack of 4k. This beats buying small tv with hideous input lag to play certain games for sure.

Wish there was a g-sync model as this looks like a great competitor to the Z35. I want to see a complete review of this screen with a Z35 comparison!

At least it is relatively cheap given its size. However, 1080 at that size should be a big nope for anyone who has seen the glory of 1440 or 4k.

@REALIST9

Hum you do realize it's a 21:9 monitor? The vertical height is probably similar to a 24 or 27 inches even though it's a 35 inches. And 1080p is perfectly fine for 24 or 27 inches. Unless you're sitting one foot away from your monitor of course.

Adblock is for heroes.
 
Merry_Blind,
1920x1080, 27" is not "fine" when sitting about two feet from it. I thought that was common knowledge.

You can easily see the difference between a 1920x1080 and 2560x1440, 27" monitors at that distance.

Also,
in the article he said you could have three monitors and sit 6.5 feet away. Uh.. that's a little idiotic IMO.

PHOTONBOY,
The 6.5 feet comment is a comment about the curve of the screen and isn't saying anything about three monitors. He states a full circle which would be about 20 I think. I'm pretty sure he isn't being serious.

IF the inputs were on monitor and this had VESA mounts I'd be buying 3. The people here complaining about the resolution really should stop and think for a moment. This is an ultra wide 144hz monitor. The chances any of you have the ability to run your games at 144 fps+ on this monitor is slim and across 3 is nearly null. The "35 inches" is measured kitty corner meaning the actual height of the monitor will be roughly that of a 24-28" monitor.

EDIT: Only the EU model states 160hz , same model number but the US one is 144hz.

Have to agree, I have a http://gaming.benq.com/gaming-monitor/xl2720z/specification/#skip and you really can start to notice pixels with it's 1080p resolution is some applications, hell even on this 24" 1080p monitor I'm looking at if I focus too much on the white in the web browser I can see the pixels.

Saw a 4k monitor sitting next to a 1080 monitor running a benchmark program and was like meh, no difference. If the screen was an inch from my eyes or 200" accross, I could see a reason but not on sub 30".

The pixel density debate is a bit pointless to me since it is so personal. If you cannot tell the difference great for you! If you have never used a monitor above 1080 and are fine with this panel size and density - awesome this would make a nice monitor for you.

I, on the other hand, have been spoiled since 2012 and my first Catleap with 1440 goodness and I can EASILY spot the difference and sit (well depending on how bad I slouch) somewhere around 2-3' from my panels (3 of em). Now 4k is a bit harder for me to see a difference in some scenarios, but that is aging eyes. Of course, not having a 4k panel sitting next to my 1440s means I am not missing anything at the moment.

Point is arguing pixel density preference is like arguing for large or small breasts - there's plenty for everyone to be happy!

35" at 1080p oh great a 1998 relic NOW IN EEEEXXXTTTRRAAA wide.. yeah i can just put my other 21" monitor side by side and still beat this pos with 1998 1600x1200 @75hz.

2008 27"x1&1/2 wide still same bad 1080p same bad 60hz eye strain, new name, same old flaws

oh i forgot to add i like the look of it but there's no VESA mounts and the price is freaking ridiculous
call me when the price hits $225 that's the max i am willing to pay.
i'd rather waste that much on a 42"tv poser 4k@3840

I have a 34" 3440x1440 and a 24" 1920x1080. My 34" is much clearer than even my 24"! To put 2560x1080 on a 35" you would have to be blind not the see every pixel staring at you. In this case never mind the 144hz cause your eyes are already screwed if the resolution doesn't bother you haha ??

My projector runs 1080p on a 100" screen. It's glorious. Of course I'm not sitting an inch away from the thing but it's still amazeballs.
edit: Went to a friends house who just bought a 65" 4k TV and all I could think was why is it so small....
