PC monitor manufacturers tend to focus on a particular buzzword or acronym almost every year. In the past, we have been treated to HD (high definition), denoting the screen is capable of running a minimum 720p resolution.
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.

Good monitor, Screen Burn IssueMy partner has had the same monitor for 2 years. I am a keen flight sim enthusiast, so wanted a more immersive experience, so opted for the widescreen.
In general, the monitor is very good, met the expectations, looks great mounted on the wall. The down LED lighting effect is also a nice touch that adds a quality feel.
The triangular backing however is really infuriating and does not line up very well. It will try your patience as you make several attempts to get it lined up and in place correctly.
The biggest issue for me was that the screen did get impacted by screen burn after about 2 days of having it. This did subside after 15 minutes but the burn occurred after only about 2-3 minutes of paused screen. It was quite shocking how heavy this was after such a short period of time.
WARNING: ensure you enable all the power saver modes to avoid this.
I still decided to keep the monitor as otherwise everything about it is aesthetically pleasing, fit for purpose, gives a really good game experience, and was very easy to mount tidily on the wall. The G-Sync as well makes for a very smooth player experience, and the monitor delivers very sharp and deep colours.

Beautiful, but bank breakingIt's a beautiful monitor, not a single dead pixel thanks to Dell's 0 pixel guarantee. The shape, the LED lighting around it and the little curve are all done quite perfectly.
To get the most of it you will need a pretty strong graphics card, but if the money isn't an issue then I highly recommend it.
The product did arrive very late, I paid for next day delivery and got it after a week. They kept saying they lost it, yet wasn't even dispatched but was also in stick, a bit of a circle jerk.
LG recently released a new monitor with a newer panel than this, HDR 400 too. There is a flaw, you're entered into a panel lottery on whether or not it is a little dead and so I opted in for the Alienware.

Wow what a monitorSo I had this monitor now for 3 months and have to say the difference between my old dell 27" 1440P monitor and the 34" is night and day. Its a great monitor plan and simple
The level of detail is amazing even though both my monitors are 1440P, going from a 60hz panel to 120hz is just so much better.
The level of motion when moving the mouse just better none of the ghosting you seen in less refresh rate screens.
The colors and viewing angle make it a delight to look at color scale is good once set up
The features in the monitor are very good everything from lighting modes to adjust the height to angle of the screen is good.
G-snyc is very nice to have as well no longer having to worry about screen tearing is a great feature.
I had no problem setting this monitor up on my own, it does have a very heavy metal stand but is a nice one piece item.
The only downside I have found you have to connect your cables to the monitor before you put the last back plastic panel on as there is next to no way to do this when its on connected to the stand.
One thing that is different is the lighting system which is very nice and easy to change colors using the downloaded software from Dell.
I do like that the light at the front of the monitor is touch sensitive if you don't read the manual you would think its a broken light. so it can easily be turned off in error if you did not know better.
Gaming on this screen, is awesome I had no complaints everything is crisp and clean having G-Sync helps.
I had no issues with the refresh rate playing up or showing dead pixels.
The black light bleed is very low on my screen once I have set the contrast and brightness levels down and does not show up when playing games with dark content i.e Resident Evil 2
This monitor has come down in price since I brought mine as of 16 March its (£998)At the time I got mine in December 18 (£1098) but is still I say £150 -£200 over priced but I think this is the best 34" monitor out there at the moment as everyone is still waiting for good stock of the LG.
Pros: Screen size,viewing angles, refresh rate quality of stand / screen. Still better screen than the Asus and Acer 34" models as they are still both only 100mhz screens.
You get what you pay for, its the main part of your pc, no matter how good your GPU is or how fast your CPU is, without the screen it means nothing and not having a good screen should be at the top of your list as if that is bad then no matter if you have a 2080ti or i9 cpu it wont look good.
Cons: Price cant get away from it, its a lot of money, they say the monitor features an ultra thin 3-sided bezel for an expansive 34-inch screen space. yes it does but when on you still have the inter screen bezel which is 4-5cm so the 1cm outer plastic bezel is small the screen does not go to the edge of it.
You need a good GPU to run this at 120 Hz no getting away from the fact I have a 2080ti running this screen and a Dell 27" 1440P as my 2nd monitor and still able to hit 120 FPS in games like Final Fantasy XIV, Resident Evil 2 etc
Would I recommend this monitor yes every day of the week it amazing, the only downside is price but its not like you have to replace it every couple of years like a GPU so is a worth while investment!!!

Nice monitor. Mine was incomplete.Bought mine a week or so ago and have only just sold my previous monitor so have literally just unboxed it.
Mine is incomplete however and I'm not sure as to whether or not I've been given a returned item.
I have no power cable and no DP cable either which it states in the manual that they are included.
Least of all I expect a power cable with a 1k monitor.
Its only a 3 pin kettle lead and I do have one or two in other devices in the house so have managed to power the monitor to test.
There's noticeable light bleed in the bottom left and right of the screen but is not noticeable when the screen is bright, only in blackish screens.
Might call Dell and get some advice, I dont want to return the item for refund but I also don't want to pay full price for someone elses re-boxed return.
Personally I recommend this monitor, the sharpness and color is great, as is the 100hz/120hzoc, you can tell a difference.
Scan are usually spot on so I'm not overly concerned.

BrilliantHi, I never leave reviews but once I set this monitor up it absolutely blew me away, I play bf5 and it immediately changed my gaming experience. I've noticed a massive difference to my asus 27" monitor,
I know you might think its expensive but it sure made me happy when I saw what I'd purchased. Scan delivered this in 3 days when I couldn't find stock at this price anywhere, if your a gamer but undecided if this will get you more kills, it sure makes a massive difference, I'm well chuffed with it.

As always premium quality from AlienwareUsed for Designing, Rendering, Editing and the odd games. Very versatile product. Assumes the curve would hinder Designing, however the curve is not too deep to make the design look odd.
The IPS colour collaboration is spot on. Refresh rate is smooth at highest throttle using rtx 2080.
Was in need of the product asap for a new built system. Checked stock and availability from various suppliers, chose SCAN and everything went smoothly and delivered promptly.

Is this the one you’ve been looking for?One doesn’t simply stumble across a monitor like this, you have been looking for the best ultrawides available (in 2018). It is likely you are seeking assurance that this isn’t a gamble! Hoping to read more positive reviews than negative... How do I know this? Because it was me until recently.
There are bad luck stories out there with anything this expensive, no doubt refunds or replacements resolved those. However all I can state is my experience and it was a good one.
Arrived when it should have, well packaged and secure. Solid build, easy to setup and looks great even before turning it on. Doesn’t do sound, but most people use other devices these days anyway.
I have a strong spec pc, so consider that before you purchase, but if you are happy with your spec - this monitor will do it justice.
Everything looks great, I couldn’t be happier with this purchase and I don’t hesitate in recommending this product to anyone.
If you do decide to go with it - don’t forget to blink every now and again ;o)

Is there an equivelant with a full LED screen?
I was looking at this monitor for a while under the impression that it was an LED display. However, i recently saw that it is an LCD with LED backlighting. Is there something similar that features a full LED, IPS display? A VA panel would be acceptabe if the latency is lower and runs at 144hz+
