This monitor is exacally what i was after
The quality is HD and when viewed from a normal distance it is perfectly fine for almost all activitys. If you were buying one just for watching movies or working on high detail graphic design maybe you would want to look to the 4k version but the price really hikes. I did struggle for a little while to get my laptop (running windows 10) to recognise the ultra wide resolution, but that was resovlved with a little googling.
The screen is nice, its not boarderless but the glass runs to the edges so when its off it looks like it might be. The screen has a matt texture which defuses reflections which I prefer over a gloss overly reflective screen. Good when you have window and lights behind you. Its bright enough, I have mine on 50% in the day (bright room) and less at night. The control for bightness etc is a very intuitive joystick button which I love, no crappy 4 button control! The stand is fairly subtle and works well although I would prefer to wall mount it at some point. The screen has speekers which i wasn't expecting. They are not world class but still useful if you dont want to always use headphones for video calls etc. Perfomace wise the responsiveness and colour is fine for what I need (3D CAD design) again for specialist users requiring fast response/high spec colours you will need to spend more, but for every day stuff its good enough.
I did look at the smaller (29in i think) ultra wide monitor but I am glad i spent the extra on the 34". it is big enough that I don't wish i had more space but still fits on the desk ok. I would consider a curved one if by budget allowed, if I am working on the edges it does feel like I'm looking at an angle.
Comes in a very sturdy box, well packaged and easy to open. Alot of polystyrene which is never great from a recycling/environment perspective so hopefully that changes at some point.
Really nice bit of design on the back allows the stand to just clip in. Make sure its locked before you grab it by the stand though. The stand hides the 4 screw points for wall mount options which is nice (not that I can see the back of my monitor when on my desk). Not a fan of the power adapter, its a shame the 240v doesnt just plug into the back like most screens do nowadays.
i would definatly buy another one, I went for a single untra wide over 2 27inch screens so will see how that works for me but currently I am loving the aesthetic and function of this one!
