    They should release next gen with Thunderbolt 3

    • +5

      If this was 4k, It'd be more enticing for me.

      • +8

        It would also be a tad more expensive :)

      • +2

        You got a supercomputer back there just raring to push ultrawide 4k or what?

  • +7

    Pretty terrible monitor in terms of ghosting, input lag and overall picture quality sadly

    • +5

      Yeah it was good acceptable at a time when WQHD monitors weren't readily available but now there's plenty more options.

      • Out of curiosity, what are the better options now?

        • +1

          Dell S3422DGW was rated pretty highly last time I checked, sale usually around 500 - 550 I think?

          • @reloxation: $569 right now.

            • @theguyrules: Ok. Best to wait for a sale price, like the ones I said above.

            • +2

              @theguyrules: It's $539 in the dell website…https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-34-curved-gaming-monitor-s3422dwg/apd/210-azhu/monitors-monitor-accessories

              • @Boomnam: Even better!

                • @theguyrules: You can get it cheaper down to ~$500 delivered using the student code method as shown in this thread

              • +2

                @Boomnam: Use vivid5 code for making it 512 delivered. I will go with. Dell anyway

        • I just got a LG 35WN75C 35" which are selling for $599 at the moment. I am pretty impressed so far.

          • @FutureMe: so is the dell better or the LG??

            • @striker5950: unsure if Dell is better or not. I do know I had the a similar Dell Monitor recently but non ultrawide and didn't think the VA screen was that great. Still happy with my LG choice.

      • What other ultrawides can u reccomend without breaking the bank?

        • +1

          See my comment above

          • @reloxation: is the LG better? LG 35WN75C looks like LG has real hdr10 while the dell has fake hdr400

    • +1

      I had one, yes, its pretty bad, but you get what you paid for. I got it for $449 last year, its sufficient, but I upgraded to a 38" ultrawide which is way better, but it costs 3 times as more, so that's to be expected.

      • Was it 3 times better?

        • Hard to quantify, but I really like the 38" Ultra wide format. You get 3840 x 1600 resolution. Cinematic movies take up the entire screen and that vertical real estate is very handy.

          The 49" is only 1200 vertically, and the curve is way more obvious.

          Its definitely better, dunno if its 3x better though.

    • +14

      Saying it's terrible is a bit of a stretch, it's all relative. For the price, it's pretty good in my books:
      - Calibrated via Spyder 4 pro
      - Casual FPS gaming, like CoD Warzone, Insurgency, and some driving sims etc
      - Non-commercial photo and video editing

      There are definitely better options for a higher price for sure, as per comments above/below.

      • recommandation for budget color meter?
        the popular ones are all like 400$+ i might as well spend that money onto the monitor itself…..

    • I thought it looked good when I saw a friends after using a hardware colorimeter on it for them, the problem indeed was ghosting however in certain types of games (Racing, flying) it's fine.

  • +9

    Wouldn't buy at this price any more. Was a good monitor for the price in 2020 (I think I got mine for $450 then), but the Dell (amongst others) are better choices now.

    • -1

      Do you have any recommendations?

      • +4

        He just said the dell

      • $499 ebay plus sale. Wouldn't recommend for console gaming.

        • where did you get that price? link

  • +2

    If you need a monitor and can't find one of the other options, then it's a reasonable choice. However, as others have said… it's not great, and I would not run it at 144 Hz and expect great picture quality (you get some ghosting on edges).

    I've been using since ~2020 though, and I'm happy enough with my purchase.

    • +6

      I've been using it since Covid lockdown for all kinds of gaming and movies, plus admin and CAD work, all at full resolution and refresh rate - I have absolutely no issues with picture quality - it compares just fine to significantly more expensive products.

      Ghosting is there if you go looking for it, but it's neither obvious nor distracting.

      My only complaints are around the slightly uneven backlight (seen in really dark movie scenes) and the lack of USB ports, which are really handy.

      The Dell screen linked above is undoubtedly a better screen, but it's also $100 more expensive.

      • I've found ghosting is severely reduced if you drop the HZ down from 144 to 120, which is honestly not that much of a concession.

  • +2

    I was surprised to see this stocked at kmart

    • +6

      Yep and that's where I got mine from. Overall, it's a great bang for the buck monitor and does what it says it does with aplomb. 👍

  • +3

    Bit surprised at the sudden turn of opinions on this. Got this in 2020 during covid and it has been great for the price. Not going to throw it out just to get a newer Dell.

    • If you have it, then no… don't throw it out…. You would have to get something a LOT better (bigger, much better colour, etc…)

    • +2

      During 2020 it was amazing as the only monitor for its price with the features.

      Now you can get a Gigabtye or Dell on sale for the same price without the disadvantages. So like all things, time changes opinions.

    • Sudden turn of opinions

      in 2020

      That's two years ago.

  • VA Panel🤮

    • +1

      Having just returned my Dell S3422DWG I fully agree. Coming from an IPS I couldn't get used to the VA panel.

      • what monitor would you recommend for a 1k budget?

        • +1

          I'm happy with the HP X34 I purchased after returning the Dell. It's a flat 34" 3440x1440 165hz IPS monitor. Some might not like it as it's not curved, but that doesn't bother me.

          • +1

            @moltenaus: Thank you. Seems to be priced well too.

            I’ve never had curved screen so I am not sure what are the pros and cons of having one

            • +2

              @jmel: Dell and HP have great return policies, so you can always try a model and then return it if you don't like it

            • +1

              @jmel: I had an Acer x34 ultrawide that died and replaced it with an AOC 34" Ultrawide that was flat. Did not like a non curved screen on such a wide monitor so returned it to Amazon. Just got an LG 35WN75C 35" which seems good although not as curved as I would like. It VA panel and definitely not as nice to look at as my Acer's IPS but its not too bad.

      • why did you return it? everyone here is recommending it over the xiaomi, i was just about to buy it..

        • Colour is incredibly washed out even after following calibration guides, the viewing angles are horrible causing colour shift towards the outer edges and it was choppy in games (not FPS lag, something else). The first two issues are biased coming from an IPS, and the third issue doesn't occur on my HP X34 with the same resolution.

    • -5

      VA is better than IPS.

  • Anyone had actual experience with the Prism+ line of curved monitors?


    Ignore the crap about it being on discount, just take the $589 as the price and base comparisons on that .

    • I think they may have been spun out of Aftershock PC, and there were certainly a few couple of discount deals for them in the last couple of years posted here.
