I think pixel count wise, they are the same. The flat version *should* cost around 4-5k considering the current oversea price of roughly USD 1k and current conversion rate + profit margin for new product... Still over my budget... sweat.gif sweat.gif sweat.gif

I sarpork you! His price for this monitor is really good as well.

Bought the ultrawide from this dood and I have nothing but praises for this monitor (except playing Dota 2 on it, but that one is Volvo problem).

At 4.9million pixels ultrawide are so much easier to drive than 4k (8.3million), but the immersion of ultrawide displays are unparalleled. Especially curved ones!

I memang cannot describe what it feels like to play on ultrawide, really have to see to believe. smile.gif

Yep, the maths add up. rclxms.gif

Ultrawide 1440p is 3440x1440 = 4,953,600 pixels
4k is 3840x2160 = 8,294,400 pixels smile.gif

Got it for RM4480.. So far so good.. Very smooth with the 100Hz + G-Sync.. I can easily OC'ed to 100Hz w/o any problems at all. Try with many games such as GTA5 (not enough memory 3GB VRAM), Bf4, N4S Rivals, Watch Dogs n etc.. No problems at all. About the backlight bleeding, actually there is very little backlight bleeding and i'm sure u also didn't notice. The major problems is the IPS Glow, but for me its not a big problem coz u will distract with it only if u play games with dark background. Its not the monitor problem at all, actually its normal for IPS panel. Its cause bcoz of ur POV and ofcoz the monitor is too big. If u move ur head straight to the side of the monitor, there is no IPS Glow. thumbup.gif
Btw, I'm not sure about others reviewers coz I already watched and read most of them. Some I found that they said, if got the version after Nov 2015, then u got no problems. Only version before that got problems with the 100Hz OC due to unstable firmware.

It's oke, but if me, I will skip 1080p.. better go for 1440p thumbup.gif
R9 390 got enuf 'power' to run 1440p and with 8GB VRAM good enuf even to run with my X34.. So if u ask me, I would say, why 1080p why don't u try 1440p.. Once tried never turn back haha.. Trust me. Last time I use Dell U2713HM, then I go for X34 coz I want a 'wide' monitor so that I can watch movies w/o black border and my Cities of Skyline would be easy to monitor. laugh.gif
Btw, what is ur current monitor?

so there's no black border at all when you watching movies? how about their motion flow means does it gave you a soap opera effect since this monitor using native 100hz?

Yup, no. U can take a look at my previous post that I snap my monitor while watching Transformers. biggrin.gif
Motion flow? Means? For movies, normally will be capped around 24 or 25 fps so that its will 'look like a movie'. There also got some movies with 60fps version, but for me its too smooth, i didn't like it it.. sweat.gif

1.5k can only buy you the LG, AOC or RM300 more philips

but 29inch 2560X1080 ultra wide is not great, it's like a 23inch screen only wider..you gain horizontal but lose vertical, 34 inch is the sweet size but these cost alot of money

with this budget if me i will add few hundreds more get a 27 1440p or go all out get a 34 inch ultrawide

or a 32inch 1440p like benq BL3200PT, best compromise? big and not 1080p

but don't have gsync/freesync or high refresh rate all that, so it's more of a productivity monitor than for gaming

i myself went from 23ish to 29 inch ultrawide, the AOC one, and the diff is really big, maybe height wise not so much diff, but the wideness definitely gives you more immersion in games

also playing movies at 21:9 is awesome

Hey guys, I'm thinking of buying DELL U3415W
Will be using it with ASUS STRIX R9 390

Now my question is, which port should I connect the monitor with?
Does the HDMI port on ASUS STRIX R9 390 support HDMI 2.0?

Am coming from a single AOC i2369v (23" 1080p ips). So, for a smoother transition I went for LG 29um57 (29" 2560 x 1080p ips). Gaming with this sucker is just awesome!

I went from Ilyama E2273HDS 22" FHD to Samsung U28D590 28" UltraHD Monitor 2 months back for RM 1800. I think its very good UHD monitor that price. I can run some games like BF4 and Project Cars at Ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio (using custom resolution 3840 x 1620) with letterbox top-bottom without changing the desktop resolution. Some other games like Grid series and CoD, I have to change the desktop res to 3840 x 1620 first before I can launch the games in ultrawide mode. Otherwise, the game will scale to 16:9 ratio which looks funny. Though I just leave to run at native 4K. If you budget for monitor around that price I do recommend going for UHD monitor. Watching 4K video samples and photos are just awesome. But cant beat Apple iMac with that 27" 5K 5120 x 2880 screen. Photo and images looks so real.

really wanted to jump on 21:9 but currently can only afford the 29um57.
coming from a FHD 27" will it feel too small in terms of screen height?

im so used to big screens just afraid i cant live with the shorter height once i pull the trigger

really wanted to jump on 21:9 but currently can only afford the 29um57.
coming from a FHD 27" will it feel too small in terms of screen height?

im so used to big screens just afraid i cant live with the shorter height once i pull the trigger

skylinelover also using 27" but 2560x1440, if yours is 1080p, it's a good jump but won't feel much oohmp.
Also the height is definitely shorter as it's stretched to fill the 2560x1080.
If yours is 2560x1400, don't bother... waste of money.

I want to make the jump as well, but waiting budget to fill up for a serious gaming rig and then 34" 3440x1440, which by next year should be a lot cheaper? Then there's GSync/FreeSync, which is nice for your eye. brows.gif

I think you'll feel claustrophobic with the short height even tho your 27" is running on FHD only. Anyway this is the measurement of the monitor.
Outer dimensions are ~27.5"w x ~12.5"h. The display sits ~4" off the desk. Footprint of the stand is approximately 8"d x 9"w.

You can do a simple comparison with your 27" now. I would say it's quite a bit of difference... but if you are in the mood for some ultrawide goodness (in a budget) then I can definitely say this 29um57 is really bang for the buck! smile.gif

GSync does not mean the GPU work as fast as monitor's refresh rate, it's basically the monitor works to sync with the game's fps (frame/second) so there is no tearing on screen and thus it is nicer to your eye, means less strain when looking at smoother screen especially when playing high pace games.
VSync is however the opposite, which is why it's not as good as GSync or FreeSync which VSync will introduce more GPU usage due to the GPU needs to adjust its frame rate according to monitor's refresh rate.

I think my explanation is some-what correct, I am not sure if FreeSync is using the same concept however so take it as grain of salt... sweat.gif

Toying with the idea of going down this path with a 34" ultrawide. I am currently running a GTX970 so, G-sync requirement is going to add to the cost and yes, I do game on my rig, mainly FPS type games. May start The Division soon. Any recommendations?

Indeed. No way I was going to be able to fit it in my humble car on that day, ruling out cash and carry. Any problems or issues you encounter with your X34 so far?

If yours is indeed this specific model...
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/acer_xr341ck.htm
Then you can find third party stand easily (100 mm), also note the weight of your monitor is 9.5KG, so you may need to look for VESA mount stand with at least 10KG of support.
Good luck... thumbsup.gif

With your dual 980ti in SLI, I'm sure it will be a beast, running everything in ultra setting. I'm still on a humble 970, waiting for the xx80 to be launched. Maybe I should just go for a 27" non-curve for the time being. The XB271HU comes to mind

Yeah.. SLI 980ti also struggle for this monster X34 coz it's 1440p ultrawide (for The Division).. No regret at all coz it's superb for gaming n also watching movies... biggrin.gif thumbup.gif

And that's one of the other major consideration for holding back. With my current GTX970, it will definitely struggle to drive the 4k resolution in gaming. My options:

1. Invest in a GTX980ti - But with the impending release and availability of Pascal after July, may be good to be patient, or
2. Invest in a 27" 2560 x 1440 monitor instead ala XB271HU. But my mind tells me it's a wiser choice to shell out RM1k more for a 34" instead, or
3. Just hold on to existing S2440L/GTX970 setup for at least 6 months and sekaligus build a new monster rig when Pascal becomes available

I just realized that most 34" monitors eg Acer X34/Z35 will take up 300mm of my table depth and investing in one will not leave me with much room for comfortable operation of the keyboard rclxub.gif Options are:

1. Live with the fact
2. Change tabletop (my existing is a custom made, built-in). This would involve a fair amount of "renovation" doh.gif
3. Replace with custom VESA monitor stand
4. Get a wall mount with articulating arm (did I use the term correctly?). Down side to this is less "mobility" compared to #3 above

Both #3 and #4 above will more or less maintain the status quo ie take up 150-180 mm ,which is more or less my current setup.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I managed to locate a company that carries custom monitor stands and have a decent selection of wall mounts called Antsys. Am sure a visit to shops like AllIT or Harvey Norman may offer up some choices too

I'm waiting to see if anything interesting is revealed/launched during next week's Computex. If nothing, may pull the trigger for X34 or maybe wait for X34A. The latter is just with stand that has swivel feature.

I've been waiting to pull the trigger for my first UW monitor as well. Was initially interested with the X34 but the back glossy plastic and the OSD controls turn me off. Then had hope when Asus introduced the PG348Q, but sadly still not officially available in Malaysia. Importing from overseas is a no no since I don't really trust the QC of both Asus and Acer in their monitors. laugh.gif

Now waiting for the Acer Z1 series. Obviously a downgrade in reso compared to X34 but hopefully comes with cheaper price.

Now waiting for the Acer Z1 series. Obviously a downgrade in reso compared to X34 but hopefully comes with cheaper price.
*
My predicament is quite similar to yours ie X34/PG348Q and then Acer announced/previewed their Z1 series. On the X34, am not bothered with the glossy back finish as I nor anyone else won't see it given how my setup is oriented. As for the OSD controls, it's not something I expect to meddle with regularly hence, I should be able to overlook this.

While the Z1 series is an "improved" Z35, thinner bezel and better OSD controls, the 1080p was a put off not to mention the VA panel.

As I don't expect to change my monitors as regularly as I would with GPU sad.gif getting a 1440p to me becomes more logical an option. Additionally, color from an IPS panel is just so much more "vivid".

Just sharing my self thought processes....

Me too, thinking whether to pull trigger on x34 or pg348q. Some says dell u3415w has better build quality and qc, and the matt panel doesnt look so dull. I think its time for most us to move to qhd.

x34 or pg348q panel matt coating looks dull, seen with my own eyes. Hmmp. hope it can be a little glossier say 20%-30% so it can looks better. But not totally glossy, I hate reflection.

Agreed with you as well. It's just that, too many reports on the panel used on X34 being either has backlight bleeding or bad IPS glow. scared of buying it and find out mine has those issues, plus the asking price is rather on steeper side for such issues to exist out of the box.

Wish Dell or Samsung could just get into the game and produce UW Gsync monitors coz I rather trust these two than Asus and Acer biggrin.gif

Ya I know. It'd be better if they didn't put the headset as a free gift and gave a further RM400-500 reduction from its RM4299 price. That'd be sweeter. brows.gif

I think Dell's working on a new UW G-Sync monitor but could be months before it's announced. Dell and Samsung are rather slow in tapping the gaming monitor market.

GTX1080 on UW G-Sync 2k monitor, I believe the fps will rarely dip below 60hz when gaming at max/ultra settings.
G-Sync works is when the gpu render fps is way below the monitor fps, so it's like a waste of paying extra for G-Sync monitor.
Hopefully it will be a new option to games, Dell or samsung UW G-Sync 4k monitor smile.gif

On the other hand,
Fast gpu + normal monitor = Wasted G-Sync. (However screen tearing due to fast gpu render rate but monitor still 60 fps, this can mitigate by nvidia new Fast Sync)

Note : No one is using V-Sync due to high input lag nowadays.

Yeah.....the S2716DG is so overpriced for a TN panel.

On a different note, Asus and ROG have conducted their Computex 2016 press conferences with ROG showcasinga 24" 165hz monitor. Tomorrow, Computex officially starts. Waiting on Acer/Predator's announcements

EDIT : Seems Acer will be previewing X34P, with native 100hz. Current X34 is native 60Hz, OC to 100Hz. FYI, There's also an X34A already in the market (not Malaysia unfortunately). Diff of X34 and X34A is the stand whereby the latter has swivel function.

Wow that fixes every flaw that the X34 has. Lel. laugh.gif

I'm sure it can be purchased by way of a special order. Price though, may not be "ideal". Alternatively, you could consider an Ergotron MX arm or similar products.

It will be an interesting year for ultrawide monitors. Personally, I will go for an IPS and no less. TN is passe and in between, AMVA panels which sadly, do not produce the vibrant color of IPS panels.

AOC introduced their ARGON series recently and the AOC AG352UCG looks interesting from specs standpoint. Alas, VA panel.

Let's see how the X34 prices get affected over the coming months. Considering a month or so ago at an IT Fair in KL, the X34 with RRP of RM4599, could be purchased for RM4399 and more recently, it dropped to RM4299 with a free headset.... (Amir, don't feel the pain. You have afterall been enjoying your purchase while we who have not, have painful backsides sitting on the fence, waiting to pull the trigger)

Curvier, for closer placement of the monitor to the user.

Q4 is months away. Tried YouTube-ing the model for a hands-on experience at Computex, found no result. All are focused on the new 1080. What a shame that this is missed.
