Right, and what about an 27" curved monitor?... This question is for everyone as well, anyone that prefers an 27" curved? As I've been a bit interested in ASUS other ROG 27" curved monitor actually.

In find curves on small screens rather useless, but I'm getting old. A flat 27-28" screen for me sits perfectly in front of my face, so I don't see the need for curves. But on my 35" ultrawides, it makes perfect sense for a slight curve. Just my opinion, everyone's eyes / desk position / etc is different.

Curved monitors only work for applications in my opinion. For gaming its a gimmick like 3Dvision

But I agree. I regret buying my 34inch. I think I'll go back to 27. Maybe even splash the cash and go HDR.

For decent HDR you are looking at paying a hell of a lot, Personally I'd wait a while until HDR on monitors matures a bit as right now it's a gimmick and you're paying a premium for it.

I am the opposite, I love my 34's and I also can use my 27* for FPS etc.

Buying a UW was the best buy I have done with hardware that I have done.

Until GPUs are man enough to run games at 3440x1440 at, or close to 200 Hz LG 34GL950F is the monitor to pick. HDR is still in it's infancy, and more pain than gain. It is good that this release is happening now, because when next generation of GPUs that could run games that high comes, and HDR is more polished monitors will be less expensive.

I would really like ASUS to drop that idiotic stand and offer something normal and discrete. I mean you pay 2700 BT (Bear Tokens) for a monitor, and you need to add another 200 BT for normal stand. It is stupid.

Why in the 7 circles of Hell do they need DAC on a monitor? I would understand it if they had proper high-end headset in their lineup so you can pair it with, fair enough. But they don't. People who rock studio grade headsets already have much better DACs than ASUS is offering.

Drop the idiotic stand, drop the useless DAC, and sell your product for 500 BT less. You will sell way more units, and you will earn more money.
