Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

34" Acer XR342CK, 3440x1440, Curved 21:9 UltraWide, IPS Zeroframe Display, Adaptive Sync, 5ms, Speaker, DP/HDMI, USB Hub is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A monitor and a half that won't disappoint Now, some of you may have already looked at this monitors big brother, the Acer predator X34. I did, and really wanted it, but because money is a barrier and I couldn't afford or justify splashing £900 on a monitor, I decided to look at other models. After weeks of bugging my friends and family with discussions and comparisons between different monitors, I settled for this one, the Acer XR242CK. I was anxious for it to arrive, and was worried that it just wouldn't match the image I had built up in my head of it. Safe to say, it was delivered without a scratch on the box (and this was a huge box) with everything nicely packed and looking good. I must say that Acer made a good call to pack the monitor pre-built in the box. After opening and lifting the impressively heavy and sturdy monitor out of the box, I placed it on my desk. This monitor has a pretty big footprint, with metal legs that look stunning with a very unique and adjustable mounting system (up/down/swivel/the lot). Although you can mount the monitor on a vesa mount, I wouldn't recommend it as you loose that sleek and machined stand design, plus I think you'd need a crane due to the weight of the monitor (lol). So I plugged it all in and turned it on. I was amazed. The curve, the IPS panel and the sleek design make it a truly wonderful experience. The LEDs on the bottom of the monitor are a nice touch, but I find that the lowest brightness is the only usable setting without having you eyes burned by the brightness. I did have a little play around with the display settings and it seems pretty simple and easy to follow the menus. I do like the little dimple button (which is a little similar to LG's) and makes it easy to navigate. The USB hub is handy as well and cable management is good on this monitor (although the placement of the Displayport cable makes it rather tight and difficult to bend when the monitor is on it's lowest height) Something that isn't advertised about this monitor is the refresh rate. I am happy to say that this monitor can perform at 75hz! Result! I've never used anything more that 60hz before and was quite content till I got this monitor. In the month that I've been using it I found a improvement in quality and haven't noticed any screen tearing or performance issues (I am using a gtx 980ti which runs butter smooth at the settings I like and easily push 75+ fps in the full 3440x1440 resolution). I mainly use mine for sim racing gaming and film watching. The experiences on both is amazing. I get a great field of view in games, and it feels more immersive with the curve. Films without black bars at the top and bottom are amazing, making great experience and immersion. The matte finish of the screen it nice as well (I much prefer matte over a shiny finish any day). Back light bleed on IPS monitors can be an issue, but I haven't noticed it on mine when sitting dead centre of the screen (you will if you look from an angle but why would you with this monitor?) I had no dead pixels or any other issues with my monitor that I could notice either. So, am I annoyed that I didn't buy the Predator x34 monitor instead? No. I've brought a monitor that does what I want, has a 75hz refresh rate, makes me happy, and I've saved myself £400 at the same time. I would recommend to anyone who cannot justify the price tag of the Predator x34 but really wants a ultrawide experience that'll blow your socks off! Scan was very quick to deliver and had the best price I could find at the time of purchase (May 2017).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best monitors you can get right now (if not the best). I've had this monitor around a month at the point of writing this, and thusfar I have been very impressed. The size of the thing is something to behold, I upgraded from a 27" Asus monitor, and that was pretty sizeable, but this Acer is huge. This is something to be aware of, but for the sake of immersiveness in gaming, or ease of use when writing documents/browsing the internet etc. there isn't much competition for a 34" Ultra Wide. I would check the dimensions if you are tight for space. I am quite fortunate that my PC is in front of a windowsill so that I could move the rear half of the stand back onto that for more desk space, otherwise I would've been cramped. (For the record, I have a cheap and cheerful - and small - Ikea desk, so space is at premium anyway, I'm sure a proper PC desk would have no problems). Quality wise, I'm running at full 2k resolution (I had to buy a new GPU to do this. Check your specs!) The monitor handles everything in it's stride. There's no flickering whatsoever, the mouse glides across the screen at any speed with zero blur. I've hooked up the monitor to my PS4, which reminded me how rubbish my TV's refresh rate is, everything looked crisp, nice colours with good depth. I had looked at other reviewers before I bought this monitor, and some had mentioned that they had a fair bit of backlight bleed on the corners of the screen. I however haven't ever really experienced this - maybe a tiny amount when watching iPlayer (which will have black bars down the side, due to the resolution this screen runs). This is barely noticable, and by that I mean it's barely noticable even if you actively go looking for it. Maybe I got a good one, or maybe the reviewers that I read/watched were just winging about nothing. In my opinion, there is no issue here, at the end of the day, you're screen will be full and lit up 99% of the time anyway. In terms of PC gaming performance, I am in the position where I actually cannot comment. (I'll try to make an addition to the review when I can) This is because as I said before I bought a new GPU to run with this monitor, to take advantage of Freesync <-- which is awesome. However, I failed to realise that my CPU/Mobo combination was out of date for the Graphics Card. My fault entirely. I was able to play some games on some high-ish settings and the monitor as before had everything under control. Playing games on this thing is awesome, just for the size and resolution alone, but added to the depth in colours and things really come alive. I will hopefully now be able to really crank it up with my new CPU/Mobo/RAM spec jump, so watch this space. In terms of other features, the fact that you have a USB3.0 hub behind the screen is a nice addition, (1x USB3.0 Type B becomes 4x USB3.0 Type A). The menu system is pretty good, when you get used to the "joystick" arrangement on the backside of the monitor. I really like the ambient lighting strip, some won't, but I have a Red LED setup in my PC, so it's nice to augment that on my screen. In fact I bought a LED light strip to stick to the topside of the screen, which was made super easy by that USB hub. Plugged straight in, and is now a permenant feature of the screen. Finally the stand and swivel mechanism. Both of which are really classy. The stand is Alluminium in a brushed finish, and the mechanism that the monitor sits on is fantastic - really really easy to move around (literally 1 finger) and has a very smooth action. It also has a very decent amount of angle in both up/down and left/right tilts,far more than I would ever need, sat at my desk, but maybe useful if I wanted to watch a film from my sofa, as being a curved monitor, you really want to be in the "sweet spot" at all times. Anyway, enough of my ramblings... Overall, I would SERIOUSLY consider this monitor if you're in the market for one. It is expensive (to be honest, very expensive), however, if you want the best monitor you could get this is definately one of them, and all of the UHD, UltraWide screens with freesync/gsync are similarly expensive. If you can afford it - and as I have said before, if your computer can handle it at 2k res, I would urge you to buy it.

Questions & Answers

What is the panel maximum native refresh rate?

as topic, this isn't in the description. it would also be useful to know what the minimum refresh rate is for Freesync functionality as this differs between vendors, and even models.
