Viewsonic 35" 3440x1440 100hz Ultrawide FreeSync LCD Monitor $499 + Shipping / Pickup @ UMART

250
Summary

Stumbled over this while looking for a budget Ultrawide alternative to the Kogan screens.
It's the first known branded 3440x1440 ultrawide I've come across sub $500. It also looks like a number of stores are doing this price - so check our your local PC parts re-seller.

I can't find any reviews online - so tricky to say how this compares to other budget models.

    Sigh..no vesa mount is a deal breaker for me..

    this or the kogan?

      I believe the kogan has a besa mount.

      They probably use similar quality pannels. If you're dead certain on not using vesa mounts just grab what's cheaper.

      *Vesa mount argument may not be applicable if this actually has a great stand. Doubt it though.

      Edit - Both the same price. I'd go the kogan personally, just because it has reviews.

      panels aside (not much information on this one) kogan has 1800R curvature which IMO is much better experience at this size

        cheers!

        for games or split screen office use?

          Much better immersion in games especially 3rd person RPGs and FPS, and more ergonomic for office use. I think 1800R is pretty optimal for 21:9 at this size.

            @ls123: This is off topic, but you are not accepting personal messages.

            Tested Ryzen 3700X with MSI B450 Mortar. Paired it with HyperX Predator DDR4-3200 8GB x 4 DIMMs (4 DIMMs is the biggest challenge I think). Using XMP profile 1, it does 32GB with DDR4-3200 (but zero luck with any manual overclock - black screen and had to clear BIOS). MSI also restrict memory frequency on this board so no DDR4-4000 or above offered in BIOS.

            If you want 4 DIMMs and DDR4-3600+, go with X570. B450, best to stick with 2 DIMMs.

    is 5ms response bad/noticable?

    2500R curve, so the curve is quite gentle compared to other ultrawides.

    Trying to come up with a good reason not to buy this for my home office…
