34" Gaming Monitor Samsung Ultra WQHD 21:9 75hz VA LED LCD Freesync 1440P $358.02
Original Coupon Deal
Does 75hz make a big diff over 60hz? I can see why 120hz could but what’s 15 extra hz?
You can notice it, but all else being equal you'd want to push for higher resolution or refresh rate.
Not sure this is good value though, beyond those who are still eyeing off 16:9 1440p 60Hz-75Hz monitors at $250+.
Not a big difference, but a noticeable difference.
Wife wants 2 new monitors. Still Xiaomi right?
Go for the Gigabyte 34" monitor.
Not sure if you can find it for sub $600.
Hold out for a deal like this if you can. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/628232
But the Xiaomi has better reviews against the G34 everywhere. Why not snap up the Xiaomi at $429 right now.
It doesn't, the Gigabyte has the same panel but it's implemented better. For the price difference, I'd probably get the Xiaomi at $429 though.
@Shrew: They could be variants of the same panel design (it's unclear), but yes it measures substantially better using current techniques.
What's more, current techniques have been adjusted such that they far better reflect how the human eye perceives motion and colour/brightness, and should be observed and respected going forward.
The Gigabyte is almost 20% faster on average with response times, coming in at 10ms when the refresh interval is 6.95ms.
It's that price everywhere right now. $500 would be what you're waiting for.
this is probably better if ur buying it purely for the intent of general home/work use.
the main benefit of the xiaomi is offering higher refresh rate, which only really benefits competitive gaming.
your wife would probably be happy with either tbh, but the main advantage of the xiaomi would be going to waste if its just for general purpose use.
i guess the only other real consideration is flat vs curved screen.
yes suuure, "wife" wants them
this is like $70 cheaper than xiaomi
This not curved
Curved is mostly for marketing. I have had 27" 1440p curved and non-curved, and I can't differentiate between the two. Other quality like panel (IPS vs VS), brightness, colour reproduction etc. is much more noticeable.
For VA panels curved is better as the screen edge tends to be washed out (due to limited wide-angle viewing) in ultrawide flat panels.
For 34 inches wide, there's some science behind curved displays being better for your eyes. When the screen is a uniform distance from your eyes from left to right, your eyes don't need to adjust focus as much. The closer you sit, the more this matters.
Also Xiaomi is 144hz
people who own it says they can only run it at 120hz
also there is other issues which you can find yourself in the xiaomi deal
I own it, I can run it at 144hz..
You need to use displayport to reach 144hz..
Was looking at this earlier but can't find much info on the colour gamut since I work in graphics - the only thing I could find was that it's standard sRGB and non-IPS. The limited adjustability is a bit of a downer too - reviews online seem decent though, anyone have any personal experience with it?
I ordered it and got it within a few days. The picture quality is great, sharper obviously than my LG 34um69g, gamut seems brighter and more pronounced (as is VA and not IPS), I'm happy with mine for gaming as I don't play fps, but I spend more time on it working.
Had it send it back though because it had 2 stuck and one dead pixel. Should be getting another back this week
Could I run an Xbox Series X at 1440p and use the remaining space (880x1440) for a computer using PBP? Or does it only let you use it 50:50?
you dont have that much control over the PBP, its rather generic. see a demonstration here
Thanks for that, either 50:50 or PIP. I’ll keep looking.
is this the same which is slightly cheaper from gg.tech365?
This one or the dgf?
Not for gaming, almost reading and browsing.
this would serve fine, if not gaming you do not need the higher refresh rate offered by the dell

For that size, how is reading font with this resolution?
Anyone have experience please?
I've got the kogan variant, that size and resolution. Only use it for work, so all spreadsheets, code and word docs. Reads fine.
I have an AOC 34 inch ultra wide which is the same resolution. Wife mainly uses it for work and it works flawlessly.
I have a Samsung 34" 21:9, 3440 x 1440 but slightly different model (also curved).
It is great. Use it for work and the aspect ration is grat.
Fit 3 word documents across it or a couple of large excel sheets.
Has in built screen monitor tools, but I prefer to use the Microsoft Powertoys with Fancy Zones to customise the screen partitioning
Dont know what a VA LCD though?
Good price, I'm trying to find a monitor for workload/music/gaming but seems to be difficult
Do most recent computers handle that particular resolution?
Should be fine, have hooked up wife’s MacBook Air and MacBook Pro as well as my 2 year old dell and resolution has no problems. Even her 2015 27inch iMac will run the screen at 50hz. I do have the aoc cu34g2x but it’s the same resolution.
