Question Monitor Choice Help Needed

Hey peeps I may be able to get a new monitor shortly since my Asus is broken
Im tying to decide between an Acer Predator X34P 34" Ultrawide QHD G-SYNC Curved 100Hz 4MS IPS LED Gaming Monitor or Acer Predator XB321HK 32" 4K G-SYNC 4MS IPS LED Gaming Monitor.
I wont ever buy Asus again so don't recommend them but if you have any other suggestions I'll take a look.
I'm considering the 4K for movies as I don't know how good an UHD stream or ultraviolet download would look and play on the 1440p ultrawide.
I game with a 1080 seahawk so 1440p would probably be the best for it as that's what I originally had. So love to hear your thoughts
Cheers

34P all day. Especially for space and mech sims. Man I haven't played MWO in about a year. Argh.

If it helps at all I got the X34P today and it's a fantastic monitor, Well worth it.

For that kind of money, ditch the gaming brands and try one of these

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-LC3...g+qled+monitor

I've seen the 27inch first hand and there's no other word for it than frankly, stunning. Never seen colours like it. 144hz, HDR, it's just lush.

You think that looks nice wait till you see OLED in person. I've seen them both side by side and OLED is even better.. which is amazing considering QLED is also chuffing awesome

I had the 32" version of the monitor you linked, Overall for a 1440P 144Hz panel it was good but the HDR part of it was crap, Only 8 zones and the highest brightness was well below HDR10 spec.

From what I saw on Linus the other day there is no such thing as proper HDR on any monitor yet. None of them. Some of them claim to be, then do about 1/3 of the spec HDR states.

Do not buy a monitor for HDR. You simply won't get it.
