      $636 is a drop in the ocean compared to the overall cost of building a rig that will run current games at 3440x1400 at 144FPS. I'm skeptical, and if was dropping coin on a high refresh rate rig I'd wanna be sure.

      • +5 votes

        Anyone planning on building a rig for that resolution and framerate, i'd strongly suggest waiting for the 3080ti/3090 later this year. The 2080ti manages for less demanding games like Siege, but for more demanding games it struggles to hit even 80fps. shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olswABa55eU.

        •  

          Is there still crazy issues with SLI I feel like SLI 2080 ti's would be great for that res and 144fps but back in 2012 when I built my first rig there was quite a few issues associated with SLI that turned people away from it. I wonder if they've ironed them out now

      •  

        I'm considering the size/resolution for work purposes.. 1.5 x 27" 2560x1440

        If I ever get my mobile 1050 to run anything in 144 I'd be surprized, but it should support freesync as I understand.

      I think it is of consensus that dual monitors are better than ultrawide for productivity

        Can’t agree more.

          Great. I have been using a curved Samsung with the same resolution, which has been fine due to Magnets on MAC and DisplayFusion on Windows, but very tempted to go dual screen.

      opposite view to the comments below here, went from 2 24" to a 34" ultrawide, dont think i can go back.

      • +2 votes

        Same for me - just use the Windows key and then arrow left or right and it easily manages the apps sizing etc. Then when you have a monster spreadsheet or powerpoint to work on you can use the single screen. Having 2 screens is more limiting than ultra wide

        • +1 vote
          1. With 1 screen you can only Windows + arrow key 4 windows, whereas with 2 screens you can have 8.
          2. If anything goes "full screen" you have no display left eg. Powerpoint or gaming.
          3. 2x 1920×1080/2560×1440 monitors have ~50% more screen realestate than 1x 2520x1080/3360/1440 monitor. This is critical for office productivity.
          4. Even with a tight curve, the edges of the screen are not close to facing you.

          FYI at work I have 2x QHD Dell U-series on gas strut arms with a raised 4K "mobile work station" set to 200% zoom mounted centrally beneath them.

            @Viper8: Windows Power Tools let's you customise the on screen snap grids to increase the number. Very useful for ultrawide (and other uses).

      • +1 vote

        There is also a software called DisplayFusion. It is absolutely amazing. I worked with a 40/60 split and it provides auto snapping and is insanely customisable.

        An equivalent for Mac, but not as intuitive is Magnets.

        •  

          I use that too. 70/30 on my primary (right) monitor, and 50/50 on my left monitor.

    • +1 vote

      Do you have existing screens?

      I prefer the "why not both?" approach: ultrawide + existing screen in a dual-screen set-up! :)

      I am using a 34" ultrawide + my old 24" 16:10 on the side in portrait/landscape on a rotating arm + laptop screen, and I love it! (Planning to replace the 24" with a 32" 4K or 27" QHD at some stage.)

      •  

        I have a 34" Samsung at work. Was looking at the same for home, but thinking maybe 2x 23.8" Dell QHD is better valued as I can get them at $330 each.

        •  

          Well given you already have a 34" ultrawide at work, and if you are not a gamer (given you are considering 2x Dell QHD), what I would do is buy one Dell QHD (or whatever), and then buy the Kogan 75hz flat 34" ultrawide when it drops back to the $399-$349 "sale" (non-jacked) price.

          That would give you the familiarity of ultrawide at work and at home, but still give you the benefits of dual screens.

          That's what I would do! :)

          Personally I find an asymmetric dual screen (main screen & secondary screen) much better than symmetric dual screen (which I use asymmetrically anyway!).

          •  

            @caprimulgus: Wow great insight. I guess the key would be to ensure both are IPS with similar colour profiles and panel type…

            •  

              @samprofs: Oh, nah, the Kogan (and this Xiaomi) is not IPS. If you are after IPS and consistent colour profile, then you're probably better off with the 2x Dell QHD.

              IPS 34" ultrawide will be a bit more expensive unfortunately!

        • +3 votes
          1. PS5 likely won't support ultrawide resolutions.
          2. Most PS5 games will be 30 or 60 fps, very few will be 120 or 144. Microsoft has stated it can double the framerate of certain current gen games on the XSX, maybe Sony has something similar, they havent announced anything though.
          3. PS5 is going to run most games at 3840x2160, buy a 4k TV/Monitor for it; and not a 3440 x 1400 WQHD monitor, you will only be able to run the console at 2560x1400 or 1920x1080 on this screen, its just a waste.

      Assuming you have one of these you actually have a better work monitor. IPS is better than VA for work.

      •  

        Yup that's the one. cheers!
        Would've thought after 5 years, anything would've caught up in display tech.

        •  

          Given an unlimited budget or a very deep wallet, nowadays there's a lot of extra features crammed into computer monitors you can pay the extra for. Things like HDR400 / HDR600 / HDR1000, local array dimming, G-Sync and 240hz refresh rates — if you want all these boxes ticked, you will have to spend something like $2000.

          A lot of these are gaming-focused features though, or for people working in HDR video production, not really relevant for the Microsoft Office user / sw developer.

          •  

            @scrimshaw: I also have the same Dell U3415W for 5 years!
            Was happy with the monitor for tv series and documents, but now finally upgraded the gpu to RTX2080 super and would like to upgrade the monitor.
            Really love the WQHD (3440x1440) and the small curvature, but aiming for a monitor with higher refresh rate than 60Hz.

            G-Sync and 240hz.
            I was thinking about this Xiaomi at 144hz, but then I found the Samsung 32" G7 QLED Gaming Monitor with 1000R Curved Screen
            LC32G75TQSEXXY.

            Has perfect 1000R curvature, and 240hz, and HDR 600.
            Only minus the Resolution at 2,560 x 1,440, which is in not as ultrawide as my current Dell at 3440x1440.

            It costs $1100.

            What's your opinion guys?
            Any other suggestions?

            Thanks!

        •  

          Generally you wouldn't buy a curved monitor for work, and you'd buy IPS rather than VA.

    •  

      Your is IPS panel, these are VA, so your is much better, this one just has the higher refresh rate.

    [Edit: Maybe I should post this in the thread with all the Samsung monitors…]

    I got some decent advice re building a new PC in one of these threads, so let's see if I can get the same for a monitor! (Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read this.)

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a sub-$600 (actually, if my needs could be met for like 300 that would be amazing…but if I'd really notice the difference for a bit more, I'd rather spend) 27"-32" (I think 27 or 28 is the sweet spot) monitor, either in 1440p or 4k.

    I will mostly be using for day-to-day work/productivity stuff, but that will also be my monitor for some casual gaming (I own lots of consoles but I don't take gaming seriously or do it competively) and, most importantly, for watching films and television. I say most importantly because it's really only for the film and tv that I care a lot about how things look.

    I've been reading a bunch and I think I know what's useful—correct me if I'm wrong, but that is: high contrast ratios, brightness (300 nits seems standard, so…higher than that I guess?), and, despite other issues that might affect, say, gamers more, VA over IPS. And while a 1ms response rate or 144hz refresh are great features for gaming they seem like things that I won't need so much? Where I'm struggling is in how to weigh all these things up.

    I don't know if the answer is to read even more, but it's also not the kind of thing I can perform primary research on easily; I can't exactly watch a video of another monitor's performance on my own monitor, obviously.

    FWIW, my well-loved 2012 iMac died last year, but its screen is by far the best I've ever had. (Current monitor is a crusty old 1080p 24" BenQ.) Given that, I suspect any upgrade is probably going to look glorious to me. I should probably read up on the panels they used in those iMacs as at least that gives me a baseline of what I liked.

    Any tips would be very welcome. :)

      Generally speaking, you want ips for the better viewing angles, so that you don't worry about needing the perfect monitor height or set up. This gives you alot of freedom to have multiple monitor set up. You can also stand up and walk around the room, while the screen is still legible.

      Frame and response rate matters more if you want to be able to react instantly in games. So it matters alot if you're trying to climb ranks in csgo. For single player games, anything with freesync and the resolution that your gpu can drive is your sole determinant.

      If I was you, and I'm not really trying to be a twitch shooter sensation, I'll buy 2 ips monitor, your second one can be anything cheap as long as it's the same resolution as your main.

      Additionally, I'll buy a cheap monitor for now, then wait for an ultrasharp to appear on dell factory outlet.

      •  

        Thanks!

      I'm waiting for some replies. Because I have a MacBook Pro and don't game excessively but would like a decent monitor for video editing.

      Secondary uses would be for
      1) COVID19 WFH for general office work (which is less and less likely now)
      2) gaming using a PS4/PS5

      tftcentral.co.uk and pcmonitors.info do detailed monitor reviews, so there's your primary research.

      As for your needs, seems like you really just need a bog-standard 27" 1440p 60Hz monitor if day-to-day work is your primary use.

      I personally think bigger is better so I'd go with a 32 inch and with your requirements maybe a 32 inch 4k HDR VA 10bit with a high color gamut such as this one from BenQ

        Much better is stretching it IMO. You can notice the difference if you look for it but it provides absolutely zero appreciable benefit for productivity, or otherwise standard desktop usage.

        •  

          I'd say its 'much' better for all types of games, and you don't need to look for it to notice a difference on desktop. Even if I didn't play games I'd still buy one, and you could say the same thing about phones. People are still enjoying the new 120hz phone screens even though 90% of the time they're just scrolling through Ozbargain
