  1. Nice monitor.
    Just got a 34" , not as nice as that one but less than half the price. I did not know what I was missing.:thup:
    There was a bigger difference between this and my 60Hz 27" 4K then when I went from a 19" to a 24".
    The higher refresh rate is just so nice. Even with a lower res, the colors are much improved.
    VA panels are great for movies or other video watching, but if you're into twitch gaming I would stick with an IPS panel. The faster response of an IPS panel can create a noticeable improvement to your reaction and accuracy in these types of games. I don't consider myself to be a competitive gamer as I don't have the time to dedicate myself to climbing leaderboards, but I also don't like to lose, so I'll take whatever advantage I can.
    As far as curved monitors go, I still haven't spent any time in front of one. I do a lot of spreadsheet work and have read that they can distort the users perspective of straight lines, so I've avoided them. Who knows, maybe someday we can start reviewing monitors and I'll get the chance to test one out.

    That difference would only apply to hard core online gamers, old single players like me are better suited to VA and coming from a [email protected] panel this thing is a "Peach".
    It looks way better for productivity than I imagined. The curved screen fits my eye. Not sure how a 39" would look, but that would be close to the limit before having to move your head.
    It is only 32" wide so a 39" would be 37" I went back in forth...in the end for $399 this one was a steal.
    Ah, the times, they's a changin'.
    I remember back in the day (like, 5, maybe 10 years ago) the rallying cry was "don't use IPS, they're horrible for games, stick to TN!" And before that it was "don't use LCD panels for games, CRTs are the way to go!"
    I've got a pair of IPS monitors, switched over from a pair of VAs (QNIX Q2710s) and notice no real difference. I follow a few "hardcore" FPS streamers on Twitch too, and overall they don't seem to have a preference, just as long as it's >60hz.
    Technology changes, indeed. But good IPS panels, for gaming, have been around for at least that time. IPS was THE thing over VA for better/more accurate color reproduction. For the most part still is. :)
