    WUT, 4ms response time for 120Hz and 160Hz, that's too slow for 120Hz & 160Hz - I'm thinking blurriness!

    When it comes to pricing, there is no bigger consumer rip off in the PC component sphere, than monitor prices.

    ..and Dell sits comfortably on top of all the other rip off merchants that populate the market.

    Whenever I see a monitor news article I hold my breath. Again though, not for me. I can attest that Dell does good monitors though (and even better warranty), but here it's clear that the Alienware branding adds a lot to the cost.

    I have a U2711 for like 7-8 years now and it's the best monitor I ever had image quality wise. It pisses me off that the only viable upgrade option price/performance wise is a TN Dell S2716DG. All other IPS variations out there are an extreme lottery (and insane price). :mad:

    I almost purchased that monitor used a year or 2 back, hows the input lag on it? I might just pick one up, i doubt theres ever a 29" ultrawide coming out with high refresh rate or resolution.
    Not going to pay 400+ for an 34" ultrawide, it's just too big for me and my desk.

    Honestly, I've been using it for so many years (and another Dell IPS 24" before it) that I can't comment on input lag. I'm sure though, that compared to these modern (especially the newer TNs) monitors, it's noticeable.

    The image quality however was and still is sublime, 0 backlight bleed, very little IPS glow and the colors are spot on. It's great for movies, photo/video editing, and non-competitve (think CSGO) gaming too.

    That being said, I really, really want to make the jump for 144Hz, but I find it SO HARD to find a good, reliable IPS, 1440p, g-sync monitor that doesn't cost so much AND have all the potential hassle with quality control.

    Actually, user's_guide_en-us.pdf tells it indirectly:

    Luminance output 300 cd/m² (typical) = not HDR, because HDR needs ≥1000 cd/m²
    Color depth 16.77 million colors = 256(R) x 256(G) x 256(B) = 8-bit per color.

    Or you can get PG348q for less.

    Heh I'm exactly the same. Dell monitors are excellent from what I've experienced too, people bag the brand but they make solid monitors.

    True, and its 10 bit. Need 144hz though!

    The price you pay for IPS. I remember going from the rog 1440p g-sync screen to this acer IPS, while both have 144hz I definitely noticed the increased blur. There's less of a difference at high FPS though, like 120 or more.

    And to think I paid less than half that of the lesser monitor for mine (LG 34UC79G-B). No regrets whatsoever. Okay so, I only get 144 Hz instead of 160. And mine is AMD Freesync. Don't care.

    As of right now 3440x1440 runs more or less well only on 1080Ti. For 144hz on demanding titles you would need SLI and we all know the issues related with it.

    On the other hand, next year we will have Asus quantum dot HDR screens, that will have 200hz.

    Will we be able to push 200 fps by that time? Most likely not, unless Volta will be some sort of super mutant at 3440x1440, however I doubt that.

    From personal experience 100hz capped at 98fps with Gsync and tweaks works just fine, but sure the more Hz the better.

    As everyone knows!!, I'm another U2711 owner since 2010 and it's a lovely IPS screen, no complaints really but we love upgrading our stuff...............
    Right now the 34" Asus IPS curved screen at approx £980 UK is my best option + a custom 1080Ti to go with, using SLI tweaked EVGA 780's I'm currently good for Battlefield 1 at max quality settings on my U2711 so I also feel a bit stuck because of the problems nowadays with most games not scaling up with SLI.
    The 35" Dell screen is +20Hz and 1" wider than the Asus but £980 plays a likely price in the UK of £1,500 for the 35" Dell, do I want to pay £1,500 for a new gaming monitor? NO I don't so all this upspec = new gaming monitors for 2018 at £1,500 - £2,000.
    And Volta is not going to be the new Messiah, when have NVidia given us any big upgrades?
