They all almost have the same panels. But there is still a difference in quality. You can get an A or a B graded panel even if they are the same.

Generally b-graded panels don't make it into expensive monitors, They get sold of to the likes of Korean ebayers who buy in bulk and then put their own stand, Housing on it etc...

There’s also the Acer Predator Z35P and the Dell Alienware AW3418DW, which I absolutely loved. Best monitor I’ve tried and the best looking as well. Had to return it due to the DisplayPort was defective unfortunately. But the first chance I’ll get, I’ll buy it
I had pretty much decided to get the X34p based on Dicehunter's glowing rec, what did you like about the Dell display over the Acer and Asus?

Can't believe you are asking Dice that. He's the most undecided pc enthusiast known to man. The guy literally replaces everything every 5mins.

Countdown to next replacement

"Generally" isn't the same as never.
Just look at your Asus experience.

I'd still get the Samsung, HDR is great, but windows can't handle it in the OS anyway, and what few games exist that support it properly are... few. You don't need 1000 nits 18 inches away from your eyeballs, if you're running your monitor at that level of brightness you'll screw your vision anyway. For the money I reckon it's the best choice, I'm open to viewing OLED stuff, but there's no where I know of to go and view a decent OLED screen here, I'd likely change my mind if I saw one. But of all the screens I've seen, that Samsung is at the top until further notice. The colours and viewing angles (even on a curved screen) are simply divine.

The Samsung is a great screen having had it but the HDR portion of it is poop, You make a good point about the brightness part but it only has 8 individual lighting zones which is minuscule.

OLED is still better atm. It's basically already HDR but you don't get the "fake" her we have now. Even if it's not 1000nits and unneeded it's still not hitting the mark for other HDR areas.
That said there's basically no OLED or HDR yet for monitors.
IPS and curved is basically the best we got now

I wouldn't buy oled even if it was out now they suffer burn in TV's I'd hate to see how bad they burn in monitor size, don't get me wrong they look amazing but until that issue is gone I wouldn't go near them, and I've seen just how bad they burn it's bloody terrible
