    34" ultrawide 21:9 QHD Monitor suggestions

    Looking for a new monitor preferably in the ultrawide form factor and with 1440p as opposed to 1080p.
    not looking at the gaming ones as it is more for productivity/content rather than games.

    Not sure if I will get far but around $600-800 range if it exists?

    is it any good?
    looks similar to, if not the same as, "Kogan" from dicksmith/trademe store

    If I was going for a cheap 1440P UW i'd go for that PBTech one, longer warranty and you can walk it back to them without needing to ship it back somewhere. 1440P would be nice, the price of a GPU needed to hit 100hz, not so much.

    I have this one, but it's probably getting a bit old now. Happy with it though.

    this is the review I watched, titan army = kogan, same thing.
    I went to have a look in person at pbtech. its not bad but definitely looks and feels cheap compared to the LG and others.
    but at $750 its very reasonable despite the average review from the aussie guy in the link.

    my problem is it sits a bit low, would definitely need some risers to bring it to eye level as this stand is not height adjustable.

    interesting I was looking at this last night and Im sure it was $700 + shipping.
    on trademe, through the Dicksmith store its $738.09 incl shipping.
    Anyway, $609 on the link above, but if you go to checkout, the shipping is $61.99 for me in Auckland.

    Plus that doesn't inc GST so if it gets stopped at customs you will pay that and the bio security fee

    just noticed that the PBtech price has dropped $15 since yesterday also.
    for those wondering these titan army/kogan monitors look the same as "microboard" reviews on youtube.
    its probably also similar to viotek brand ones also being reviewed

    Have you used an UW before?

    Personally i've found a 4K 16:9 better for productivity when working with Fruityloops, Traktor, Photoshop, Lightroom, Sony Vegas, etc...
    UW is great if you want multiple programs open side by side like when ive tried it with RDP sessions, ssh terminals, browser, etc...open.

    Depends what you're doing really but because im primarily a gamer, i went back to having dual monitor setup to have a 1440p as my primary gaming monitor, and I use my 4K if im doing any of the other work dealing with timelines/editing.

    I use a 4k 40" display, I play my game in a 1440p window while having chrome etc open on the side.
    I want to try a bigger UW for watching movies, multiple webpages and programs open for productivity.
    I tried the dell 29" but the low res was horrible after using 1440p at the time then I got the 4k.

    Ah sorry glanced over the initial post.

    I second Bobs link, the Samsung 34' is an awesome monitor around the 1k mark if you could stretch to it.

    im sure the samsung 34 is awesome but the appeal for trying the 34 UW lies on the fact that you can snag one for sub $750.

    Hmm that Titan Army one is down to $599 in the PBTech sale this weekend. Mighty tempting!! Currently running dual 24x 1080p at home for remote working, and been tempted with a 28" 4K but this might just be the sweet spot for productivity use at that price!

    That's a crazy price, two windows can run flawlessly on these UW (source me) in Teamviewer I can have both 1080p work screen running at the same time.

    Thatís my thinking too. I just picked up a cheap dual monitor arm for my 2x 24 but not liking how much head moving I have to do as it makes the whole horizontal space a lot. I like having two screens to pin constant conferences too, but a single large UW at that price seems potentially perfect.

    I have never heard of "Titan Army" they say it is a Samsung screen -does that mean it is one of their cast offs?
