    All FHD? Having UHD everything less than WQHD seems a huge step backwards, also no HDR by the looks of it...
    At least one of these should be present imho

    Agreed^ We have 3 ultra-wides. Looking at a 16:9 monitor now feels the same to me as looking at a 4:3 did back in.... 2008?

    But I will say that they aren't quite a crafted, well-adopted, 16:9 experience. Most new titles are fine but many older games don't have proper, native 21:9/32:9 support, even if the resolution technically works, the GUI and menus are often an afterthought. You also can't just bump the resolution down to increase frame-rate. You can change it, but you literally only get a single 21:9 resolution option with all the ultra wide monitors I've used. With older titles that can't use native, the image quality suffers dramatically . Plus, the feature rich, fast, 21:9, HDR, IPS monitors are still absurdly expensive whereas their 16:9 counterparts and so many others are quite a deal, comparatively. (though I've seen some "cheap" 34" ultra-wides lately too)

    Even with said 21:9 issues, I'd still rather suffer a few growing pains. It's a lot like using 144hz / 165hz / 200hz and trying to go back to 60hz / 75hz. I'm starting to feel that way about curved monitors too.

    With everything even I'd use 21:9 no problemo. Chance of that happening in the real world - slim to none.

    LCD technology has plenty of its own unsolved issues without weird geometry of 21:9 adding to its misery.

    These monitors are 240 Hz so anything higher than FHD will be a waste if your target audience is hardcore gamers. I would personally never buy a 27 inch monitor with less than 1440p.

    Not everyone can make use of a UHD screen and would end up playing at 1080p anyway

    I bought a ASUS TUF VG249Q on wednesday, it is IPS 1080p 144hz, I am more likely to hit 1080p 144fps than 2160p 60fps without a serious upgrade

    I bought one Gaming AOC monitor and I am done with them, garbage panels, horrible uniformity, bleeding on all edges, cheap plastic housing and terrible OSD. 1ms response is actually 5ms and so on, this is how they lower the price, but trust me, they are not worth a buy.

    VA, a recipe for motion blur. Unsure why its still used, there are better options in every way.

    True, but it does depend on what kind of VA it is. MPVA is fine, and AMVA is better still for non-HDR, low cost 8-bit.
