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.

    Same price at PCCASEGEAR & MWAVE.

    • Scorptec as well.

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

    • +5

      Seems insane to make a monitor without VESA compatibility

      • +2

        It's just such a pointless cost saving. Especially on monitors with crappy stands (which I'd be willing to bet this one is)

  • this or the kogan?

    • +1

      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.

      • cheers!

    • 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?

    • +1

      Don't worry about response, it's a VA panel so ghosting is the problem you're looking out for

      • +3

        You know what, I've bought a shit-ton of cheap monitors in my time, never noticed this 'ghosting' thing.

    • several factors contribute to overall input lag, impossible to say how good it is without detailed testing on the panel. Purely comparing GTG times 5ms is pretty decent for a VA panel

    • +1

      The aftershock x340 I have has "6ms/4ms overdrive" and the ghosting/bluring on text when scrolling on a dark mode website is noticeable. Everything else such as games or movies, it's not noticeable at all unless I compare it to my "1ms" vg248qe.

      Here's a GTG test I did, both running at 100hz

    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…
