Kogan 34" WQHD 1440P Curved 21:9 Ultrawide 100Hz FreeSync Monitor $589 + Postage (From $10.48, or Free with Shipster)

150

Got a price drop notification on this one. Personally not a fan of curved monitors as nothing looks straight, but at $589 (+ postage) for 34" WQHD 1440P, 100Hz, FreeSync, etc — that looks like a good deal.

Spec taken from the site:

  • Built with a premium Samsung panel
  • WQHD 3440 × 1440 resolution
  • Curved, ultrawide screen for immersive gaming
  • 100Hz refresh rate – never miss a beat
  • FreeSync Technology for responsive and clear gameplay
  • Speedy OD 7.8ms refresh rate
  • VA Panel for superior contrast
  • Minimise eye fatigue

Postage is $10.48 to Melbourne, ~$20 to Sydney, or free with Shipster.

    $589 with free shipping was the standard price for weeks. I was thinking about buying one and by the time I got around to checking out, I thought they had increased their price.

    My thoughts on cheapest way to get this screen: Purchase on eBay for around ~$670 when a 20% discount occurs. Checkout price is around ~$535 plus cash rewards.

      An excellent point. Buying via eBay may be a better deal, depending on postage costs.

      Shipping to my location via the Kogan website is $32, so the total price is ~$620.

      eBay listing is currently $639 + $20 postage, so with the current 10% discount via PLENTY10 code it's $595 shipped, before Cashrewards.

      Here's the eBay listing: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kogan-34-WQHD-Curved-21-9-Ultraw...

      Has anyone seen a credible review of this screen?

    Kogan will have an advantage on warranty.
    I've got a Crossover 34U100 bought a year ago for around $650. Very happy with it.
    This one have identical spec to 34U100, so if it's as good, it's a really good buy.

      Crossover usually makes better monitors than Kogan. Sad but true.

      In fact they are among the few that had 3440 X 1440 120Hz monitor last year.

      no way, the crossover has a much better panel I believe

    Is it bad that I want this just for my work Trello boards?

  •  

    I'd love to hear from the many who must already own one of these!

    I've had my heart set on a 38" Ultrawide 1600p monitor but those are almost 3 times the price of his. This is looking far too tempting.

    •  

      I bought one when they were first released. Very happy with it - but caveat that I'm using it as a work / productivity monitor, no gaming or video.

      •  

        Same purpose in mind, I'm just worried it will feel like smaller compared to my 2 x 24" Dells (1920x1200). I've heard people upgrade from 2 x 30" Dells so maybe it's nothing to be concerned about.

          I went to a 35" ASUS ROG ultrawide from 2 24" 1080p panels and actually prefer a single ultrawide now. No bezels in the middle makes viewing content feel much more natural.

          Overall there's less real screen estate but you can still work with 3 windows side-by-side-by-side.

          @scrimshaw: Thanks mate, sounds like the way to go. I'm not sold on this exact monitor though, thinking a better IPS panel might make better sense to me since I tend to get a long (10+ years) from a monitor I can justify a bit of expense.

        •  

          @Click_It: This is getting well into the territory of personal preference, but I much (MUCH!) prefer a 3440 x 1440 ultrawide to 2 x 16:9s for "productivity" use cases. Dual 16:9s are just too wide, plus the extra vertical pixels of an ultrawide vs typical 16:9 are extremely valuable for most productivity tasks (perhaps a little less relevant in your case though, as your 16:9s are 1200px vertical).

          I used to be a dual 4:3 user, back when you could still buy good 4:3 monitors - never really adjusted to dual 16:9s. For me, a 3440x1440 ultrawide is like going back to those "good old days" :-)

    I have the dell 34" that I got 2 years ago. Cost me $1050 via ebay. Very happy with it, if you're looking at an ultrawide to go with, I'd strongly recommend the 34" 1440p ones! This is almost too tempting to buy as a second monitor.

    refer discussions on previous deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/392046

    I owned one of this and very happy with it. I am just a casual gamer playing fallout 4 and Tera using R9 380 4GB. No issues running on ultrawide.
    Never check the frame rate per second since i dont care about it. Confirm refresh rate at 99.99hz, one user using nvidia also have no problem achieve the 100hz refresh rate also.

      Thanks for the link to the previous discussion, lots of helpful info there.
      Good to hear you are (or were by the start of your sentence) happy with it.

        oops, sorry for my bad grammar. i still have this monitor with me, bought it when first came out on pre-order. Still very happy with it.

        •  

          All good mate. Thanks for sharing your feelings on it. Didnt buy it this time but plan to when they have their next big sale as from your thoughts and those in the link you gave it sounds like a very good buy.

  •  

    Look like my next gadget purchase. Need to save up.

    I pre-ordered when it was released. FYI, the chin of mine came in white which was strange.

    I've been using it for about a month, love the screen. I've got it setup on monitor arms.
    Keep in mind you will need a relatively beefy system if you want to make the most of the resolution+refresh rate, runs games well. It might be in my head but I think I did observe some ghosting on fast paced scenes, but you will be hard pressed to notice.

    If I remember correctly, Kogan also have a 49" ultrawide for $999? Not trying take away from this post but the ability to go PBP with the equivalent of 2x 27" screens I would definitely consider that as well with this before you buy. I regretted not noticing that the 49" ultrawide was also an option.

    But yes, if your heart is set on a 34" ultrawide, I would highly recommend this screen.

      Thanks for the advice and experience from someone who has it.
      I am very tempted as i had been looking at the very similar Crossover monitors on Ebay a while ago but they seemed to have disappeared and this shows up $100+ cheaper from a store with some actual warranty so pretty keen on it.

      The problem with that 49" monitor is that the resolution is overall lower than this 34" monitor. I get its like you said, its two 1080p monitors right next to each other with no bezel***, but its still hard to drop to that PPI compared to this one. Though really it would depend on what you use it for most i guess (this gaming with productvity, that productivity with gaming)

      ***(Though from seeing one in person i dont know if its like two 27" monitors or two 24" monitors, as it didn't look taller than the Ultrawide 1080p 29" monitor i have now)
