Amazing monitor. 166hz is awesome. Ultrawide is the way to go.
I've had this monitor for about a week and i'm very impressed with it. 34" is a nice size (the box will be much bigger than you think) and the resolution is better than you might assume. Granted, it's not 4k, or even 1440p, but when you're playing a game with good anti-aliasing, you can barely notice the pixels. I as well game on a 4k tv, and the visual fidelity is great, but hitting 60 fps is hard. With 1080p ultrawide you can actually hit 166 fps with the right system, and it feels butter smooth. If you've never seen high refresh g-sync, well, you're in for a treat. I can actually tell a difference between 144hz and 166hz, it's small but noticeable. A nice improvement when you overclock the monitor.I was previously on triple 27" monitors (nvidia surround) but one of the monitors died so i thought to replace them with an ultrawide. I actually find the single monitor to be better than 3 for gaming. One, you don't have to deal with bezels and, two, you can reach much higher framerates since you are rendering less pixels. As well nvidia surround can sometimes have glitches or software issues that aren't a problem for ultrawide (though keep in mind that some games may need manual settings file changes or mods to work properly). If you get a monitor arm you can pull the screen closer to you and get a real immersive experience. The monitor is just floating. So nice.Since it's an ips panel, colors are great and the image has a nice "pop". Just be sure to adjust the settings, as the default ones look pretty bad. Resolution is 1080p, which is not amazing but still works. In games, i find it still looks "hd" but maybe has a softer looking image similar to how you see on console games. You will need some form of anti-aliasing, or it may look a bit pixelated. Once you have aa on, though, it question most of the issues with the resolution. And once you are playing in a game you will barely notice any problems.The main issue with the monitor is that 1080p is kind of short for real estate in windows. Coming from a 1440p monitor before, it feels pretty cramped on the desktop. Web browsing is okay, but i opted to go into full screen mode, which greatly helps the experience. Otherwise a lot of the page will be below the fold. I tried some web development on it and it definitely works, but is a little cumbersome, especially if you're used to having a debug window on the bottom of the screen, there is not much space. I tested photoshop as well, works fine for the most part but i would have liked more resolution. That said, it is usable, just not ideal for work. If you are a content creator, you may want to look into 1440p instead.Overall, though, i love this monitor. It has a nice immersive feel to it, especially with the slight curve, and 166hz g-sync is a sight to behold. The size is nice, and the resolution is surprisingly decent for 1080p. I know people probably recommend 3440x1440, and that would be the choice for content creation, but for straight gaming, a 2560x1080 resolution may be a better choice as you can actually reach those high framerates. Very happy with the purchase.
