It's 3440x1440 pixels @ 60 Hz refresh rate. It's also $899.99 on Amazon not $1199.00.

Unless I missed it, no mention of sync of either flavor. I'm not buying a new display without one or the other. I've noticed it so much nicer in every enabled task, not just gaming.

Well, too bad, its 1220$ here in Canada. I guess I will add it to my list when shopping in NY next time lol Dell brand 34'' ~4K monitor 10bit pro panel with ok speakers is pretty decent for 799$. Its a good tv with those inputs for a small room.

IPS = :)

Curved = :(

21:9 = :(

34” = :( It’s too darn short for a widescreen display. My 30” 2560x1600 already has a taller res.

“By curving the screen just a little, the extra width fits better into the user’s peripheral vision, and reduces the amount of head-turning necessary to see the entire desktop.” Wow, just wow! This is just so wrong.

“the image is not distorted in any way.”
It may not be enough to notice but it totally distorts the screen and nothing you view on it will be shot in such a way. The larger TVs totally have a bowtie effect going on and it’s a total gimmick.

For good monitor reviews, go to TFTcentral. Far better quality than other sites. Those guys know what they're talking about when it comes to monitors.

How many people here have even tried a 21:9 monitor, 34", one at 1440 res, and/or curved? I got the LG one and I love it. No complaints. Keep my 27" 120hz on a mount and swing it up front to game on

I'm using this monitor right now and it is absolutely amazing. Games cover your field of view making things so much more immersive. Also, movies shot in 2.35:1 aspect ratio (most movies) are an absolute joy to watch. Our natural vision is far more wide than tall, shouldn't our monitors match?

Actually 1k for a PC monitor is too much. Graphics chip manufacturers are not interested in making chips to support HDMI 2.0 and 4k TV manufacturers are not interested in putting Displayport to TVs. So we have to pay these prices for a PC monitor to get more resolution from our PCs. That's a shame. Monitor manufacturers should make more different products like this one to get prices down.

HDMI 2.0 is available on all gtx 900/titan x cards and like other people said, this monitor is on sale at various e-tailers for sub $1k prices. Asus, Acer, Dell, LG have all made 3440x1440 monitors

I bought one last month and returned it two days later. It was absolutely stunning for 2d work but as soon as I fired up ANY 3d game I could feel extreme eye strain leading to a splitting headache and nausea within 15 minutes of gameplay; it made me motion sick just like 3d tvs do. I tried my best to like it but it had to go.

The only thing i see wrong with it is "curved" and the price tag. I wouldn't mind having an UWS 3440x1440 monitor at all if it was flat and cost less than $500. Seems like monitor price goes up exponentially when you get over 24" and over 1080p, its ridiculous. You can buy a 60" tv for this price. 3 monitors takes up too much desk space for me width wise, but something like this would be ok, and give better immersion for gaming.

Verdict - Too curved, Too pricey.
