I currently have a ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34" Ultra WQHD 3440 x 1440 100Hz and was looking at the LG 34GN850-B 34 Inch 21: 9 UltraGear Curved QHD (3440 x 1440) 1ms Nano IPS Gaming Monitor with 144Hz and G-SYNC Compatibility

Is this worth the upgrade? Thanks!

Man, well, if you have the cash, I guess. I just wonder how much difference you're going to notice from the 5ms to 1ms and the 100Hz to 160Hz upgrade. You're not gaining any pixels or diagonal screen size, but the curve radius is different too, not sure if that'll be better or worse though.

For me yes it is worth it.
Why is LG UltraGear 34GK950F 34" better than Asus ROG Swift PG348Q 34"?
  • 4ms less response time
    1ms vs 5ms
  • 0.64% higher pixel density
    109.7ppi vs 109ppi
  • 100nits brighter
    400nits vs 300nits
  • 1 more HDMI ports
  • Has an LED-backlit display
  • 9.6mm narrower
  • 819.4mm vs 829mm
  • 193mm thinner
    104mm vs 297mm
  • 3.3kg lighter
    7.9kg vs 11200g

nice thanks for this! Ive just noticed the ROG is a bit dull, colors dont pop as much on other screens

I plan to sell this one, plus the LG dropped 70 bucks on amazon and im waiting for an open box deal closer to 800, so only plan to spend like 400 OOP
