Not merely just having perfect gaming specifications, the bigger screen along with the 21:9 aspect ratio is also ideal for office and recreational use.

Moreover, G34WQC is equipped with built-in stereos, offering a solid stereo sounding environment. The built-in stereos come with numerous benefits; not only saving you from purchasing external speakers but leaving you with a neat desk.

Wow, really 2560x1440 on a 34" ultra wide? That's surprising. Have a pair of "normal" 27" non-ultrawide monitors with that resolution.
