    Bought the screen on previous deals and loving it for the price!

    This one looks like an official Xiaomi reseller too.

    • Hi, have you already received the screen? Are you liking it? Is the text clear? I need to use it for WFH and split-screen it for a dual monitor effect.

      • Yep, I've had it for a week now. Loving it! the extra desktop real estate is amazing!

        I'm also using it for WFH and can say the text is clear and comparable (but not as vibrant) to my previous U28H75x monitor.

        There are dual inputs for DisplayPort (x2) and HDMI (x2) to create a split screen or PiP but I left it to just the one big display as it was easier to work with.

        As said in previous comments, 144hz really does make a difference even for daily desktop applications.

        • Thank you for the feedback Rod.

          Citrix has an inbuilt function to split screen but I was just curious how this would pan out given that I would mostly be using multiple Excel files on it.

  • This thing is truly the new Eneloops.

    I've got one and love it 😅

  • I bought one of these screens from a previous deal, just a warning, my screen's transformer came faulty and has a constant high pitched buzz - https://soundcloud.com/user-705898102/monday-at-1-23-pm if you are interested

    Going through the process to replace it now, but it might be a sign of poor quality control.

  • Bought the screen and returned it for refund.
    Couple of things to note and why I ended up asking for a refund:
    - dead pixel on boot, have a really good look for them as the pixels are tiny on these higher res screens
    - VA smearing to me even at High setting and 144hz was noticeable, a very obvious red trail would appear at night with the blue screen filter on
    - As I'm used to an IPS screen, the ghosting was too noticeable that it kind of reminded me of a very mild version of Halo Reach Cinematics (even though I have a really old, low end IPS)

    In the end I returned it due to fears of QC and longevity, mainly because as per chance my Xiaomi bidet just completely died out of no where, searching the ozb forums I found multiple people with the same issue (dying at around 18m), that's pretty worrying to me. However if I were to purchase it I would go with Gearbite, they actually have pretty decent after sales support (I originally purchased from Allphones).

    Just my 2c if you were on the fence

    • thanks! i was a bit concerned about potential ghosting on this panel as well. Might pass this time unless information/tests prove otherwise.

      • Give it a go if you want, its still insane value for what you get it just depends on whether you can accept the cons, from what I'm reading a lot of people got used to the ghosting

  • Got this on the gearbite deal and this thing gives me such a stiffy. Complete bargain at this price. The quality of the monitor build and beautiful curvature seems top teir, I dont see any QC lacking anywhere.

  • I received mine late last week. It seems decent enough for the price - i had a samsung CF791 before this, sold it 2nd hand for $650 so i'm up a few bucks with the Xiaomi ha!

    I'd say a direct replacement but the xiaomi is a little less vibrant colours (both VA). Samsung was only 100hz so Xiaomi wins there. The xiaomi also has a vesa mount (the main reason for the purchase).

    Be sure to change your display adaptor properties > monitor > 144hz

    Not same at Banggood deal however still good price. I use couple of these monitors, quality is excellent

    • Does this monitor work with g sync?

      • Somebody quoted "Although FreeSync is designed for AMD GPUs and I have an Nvidia GTX 1080, I did get it working with Nvidia’s “G-Sync Compatible” functionality, despite the monitor not having been formally certified"

      • would love to hear some more peoples experience on this monitor with g sync enabled.

      • I have this monitor running off a metabox laptop with a GTX 1060.
        In my instance running at 120hz (as 144hz cause artifacting and random black screens) CS:GO I get flickering in menus and mild light flicker ingame. Ended up turning g-sync off

        Considering taking monitor to friend's place who has a 2070 super to see whether its my now 5 year old laptop or the monitor that's the issue..

      • All Nvidia graphics card after the 10X series (ie: 1060, 1070, 1080 and the 20X series like 2070) support Freesync.

        But as per somone else's comment might not work perfectly.

      • I have a 1080ti and a free sync monitor, IMO fast sync is just as good as g sync. You'll find online people will say the same. Just my 2 cents 😁

      • I have Gsync enabled for full screen applications. It works, but there's some light flicker at times. Seems to happen when fps drops below 30 - which only ever happens in game menus and full screen videos.

        Tossing up whether to disable it - it is better than freesync, but not substantially. And the flicker isn't obtrusive, but it's annoying.

    • Found these one as well.. not sure how they compare
      Samsung UW

    • Also from Gearbite for $595 Delivered with code P15ACE

      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Xiaomi-Mi-Curved-34-144Hz-WQHD-2...

      And also anything above $600 should be considered as normal price now

      • Seen this monitor at $629 a bunch of times already. Seems it should just lower its price to this.

      • less 2% ebay, this is getting better and better.
        GO AWAY you Ozbarganers, need to resist, not listening anymore

    • I've been looking for a few weeks for a new monitor that is more gaming orientated. Ordered one of these and then cancelled, looked at something massive to do away with multiple monitors but didn't want to spend the money on a 144hz 43 or 49in only to always wonder how much better 240hz is.

      Ended up buying this last night the Alienware AW2521HFL last night. Solid discount and cashrewards. A bit silly maybe for sometimes social CSGO play, but at least I can't blame my equipment.

    • Anyone knows the dimension of the package and how heavy the package is? Thanks.

      • Found that info on Banggood website. Package size 994720cm, weight 10.5kg. The weight could be just the monitor weight not the package weight.

    • Can be stacked with the 10% catch gift cards from the deal here bringing down the price to $579.
      Catch allows max of 5 gift cards per txn so 10% off 5 * ($100 gift card) + $129 (alternate payment method) = 450+129 = $579.
      This makes it 6.85$ cheaper than the cheapest AU stock deal (expired) for this monitor from digiDirect eBay.

    • Received mine in the post this morning (from digiDirect eBay deal) and set it up as a workstation by day, and play-station (ha!) by night.

      So far, I'm really impressed with the colours and clarity. I've been using a couple of commercial-grade Dell 24" screens and I haven't noticed any real difference in colour rendering (although my work is definitely not colour-critical).

      The curve is subtle enough to be virtually imperceptible when sitting in front of it - no issues there. Build quality is excellent, the stand feels really sturdy and adjustment capability is faultless. Cable management is really neat.

      My only criticism of this screen is that I wish it had an integrated USB hub - 3 or 4 USB ports would be choice. Of course, I knew it didn't have one when I bought it, but they're so handy….

      I haven't tried gaming yet - will have to wait until after hours.

      Very impressed - feel free to ask questions if you're still on the fence.

      • My primary usage would be programming, will be connecting a 2017 MacBook Pro 13" (2 thunderbolt ports) to this.
        Max refresh rate that I will be able to drive this bad boy is 60HZ. Also bummed about the lack of USB ports but at this price point can't complain much.
        I read somewhere that VA panels don't so well when using IDE's with black theme and I run pretty much everything with a black theme. Any insights are appreciated.

        • I'm running at 60Hz during the day out of my work ZBook and thus far I have no complaints. I expect you'll need some form of dock or dongle to connect via DP or HDMI.

          Not sure why VA panels wouldn't work with dark themes - VA panels are excellent at dark blacks and high contrast. I suspect that advice is outdated, based on super-old VA tech.

          For what it's worth, I just kicked up a dark-themed session of Visual Studio Code and it looked absolutely fine.

    • Can anyone that owns this confirm how the PiP works? I have the Kogan 34" which should be pretty much identical, and I cannot figure how to get a 1080P to display properly as the 2nd screen. It's like it demands the second source to also be ultrawide, so ends up stretching the 1080P image quite horribly.

    • Using mine right now, nothing to complain about at all!

      Initially when i first started using it i would notice the ghosting while playing CS:GO, but I got used to it pretty fast.

      100% worth it to get this monitor, but if you really do hate things like ghosting while playing a game, probably get a screen that's lower latency.

  • Be good if we could stack this pricing with another discount code eg the eBay 15% off or a sitewite mobiciti deal. No luck looking through the eBay sales listings though.
