Thanks for the suggestions. I've heard that the can suffer from screen-flicker at the higher hz range; but only from the one source on YT.

Thanks also for pointing me towards that site. Didn't know there was a UK version.

Yeah. No. That's fine. Another site to refer to is always welcome.

I don't really need more than HD but was just worried about the PPI of an HD ultrawide as opposed to a 2K+ one.
