Thanks for a first review of this screen, great to hear that Gigabyte has done well with overdrive settings and input lag is fine. Moreover 85% DCI-P3 with an average calibration is good.

However, many users report flickering with VRR turned on both in Freesync and G-sync. Have you experience any and which GPUs have you been using?

VA panels have a major issue with ghosting or horrible pixel blur at fast motion Nano IPS is still a better looking panel all day everyday, I just wish they would fix the OLED issues of burn in images, and progress into Gaming monitors with 240hz + I will never go less than a 240hz at 1440p specially now that there are cards that can push that at ultra or high settings. GO RX series :). and HP Omen x27 240hz has dci-p3 of 90% on a TN panel and has been out for over a year this Gigabyte is GARBO a lot of games don't natively support ultra wide very niche specially in high end gaming or competition gaming.

Thank you for the review! I've been waiting a few years for a monitor with these specs - 3440x1440, >100Hz, HDR, Freesync and GSync compatible, curved screen, and most importantly under $400. I thought I'd be waiting a few more years but it looks like they did a good job with this one on top of having the characteristics I was looking for.

Can you confirm that HDR and Freesync/Gsync work at 144hz simultaneously ?

We were also able to engage HDR with both FreeSync and G-Sync (unofficially) at 144 Hz through DisplayPort. If you connect via HDMI, you'll be limited to a 100 Hz refresh rate

So, it's now December 2020. Is the Dell S3220DGF "STILL" the best gaming monitor?
Christian Eberle what do you think? Dell or Gigabyte?

Also in your reviews, is there a benefit to either of these monitors using consoles vs PC? Both older xbox one x or the new ones Ps5 and/or xbox series x? Which one makes better since if you will play both console and PC?

This still doesn't have anywhere near the amount of brightness or contrast a proper HDR display has. My pg35vq breaks 26000:1 contrast ratio and 1100 nits. It was pricey but now that miniled panels are coming this year I expect more affordable FALD panels will start appearing.

There's a handful of VA panels that have very fast response times even with dark transitions like the Odyssey G7 and Asus pg35vq.

I purchased this monitor largely on the basis of this review. I'm incredibly happy with my purchase. However, when my computer goes to sleep the monitor starts to cycle through full-screen colors. Does anyone else see this behavior? No other monitor I have does this, and Gigabyte "help" hasn't been able to provide an answer. It seems as though the person I've been conversing with doesn't have very strong English language skills so we keep talking past one another.
If anyone has this monitor and can either confirm that this is normal or that their monitor doesn't behave this way I would appreciate it. Even better would be if someone knows how to turn this off!
