Nice find OP! I bought this monitor in January 2020 from Staples for $500 - $100 off code = $400 + HST. Looks great, runs great, and is still very well priced at $430!

That is a true rfd hack

$380 is insane for this monitor

What is required to be able to open a Amazon Business account? Is it better than Prime?

Usb c connection means if your laptop or even desktop has a thunderbolt port, you can transfer power and the video signal on one USB c cable. As far as I know, only Intel builds and macs have that as a feature. It won't work with AMD stuff, not yet anyways. It's a cool feature but it's pretty pointless, you can just plug into the socket and the hdmi for video.

I think you only get discounts if you buy a lot. Doesn't seem worth it to normal people

There are two reasons for this. One is that the giant panel has a bigger viewing angle difference between center and corners than you're used to on a 27", so the curve helps the monitor sides feel like they're pointed at you. The other reason is that the colors of the panel distort when off-angle, so the curve improves the visual quality of the monitor. Note that this curve isn't very big and you don't really notice it. You can spend more for a 32" IPS with no curve because it has better viewing angles.

This is totally different than the curved TV or phone fads, which were just novelty.

I think the LG27GP850 is better, got it from Amazon for $450 couple months ago and additional 10% credit b/c of the delay in shipping, LOVING IT

I saw this one video which showed that curved tvs monitors suck for various reasons especially for gaming. One being FOV curve which distorts a lot

Is this strictly a gaming monitor or I could use this for working from home with apps like Powerpoint, Outlook, Word, etc. ? If not, what would you consider in that price range for a work from home monitor for productivity?
I was there at the 32$ price error at dell.ca day AND at the 150$ off price error at fs.ca

My bad, really need to change my prescription glasses Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I thought I read S2721DGF which is an IPS panel.

My apologies.

I can't believe the ultrawide version is still in stock.

Might not be the newest monitor, but at $650 for 35" UWQHD 1800R curve, 100 Hz Freesync and USB-C... hard to beat that these days. The fact that it doesn't look like a "gaming" monitor is also probably a plus for a lot of people.

I have that dell 32” that popped up near beginning of year, it seems almost the same panel as this benq, but there was a debate few posts back about it not.

However that being said, I use this monitor mostly for work and it’s amazing. At first I was a bit overwhelmed by the size but now, I have no idea how I’m going to work back in the office with those crappy 23” lcd’s and horrible resolution. Sigh, I’ve been seriously spoiled now.

And I love the curve!

You should not be allowed to make posts like this.

What if someone bought it, thinking you actually have an idea what you're talking about.

Theyre two different panel types.

Yeah big downer - here is the official adapter, but can't seem to find it in stock anywhere:

EDIT: Seems BenQ US sells the adapter for $30 USD, but only to US addresses (the corresponding en-ca has no buy now button): https://www.benq.com/en-us/monitor/acce ... ssory.html
