I was thinking about pulling a trigger on this monitor but for me a deal breaker is no hdmi 2.1 ports. That means no 160hz.

Personally I want a monitor that has at least usb-c which supports 20gig transfer late or at least thunderbolt 3. I’m tired of using small work monitor.

That’s why imo gigabyte m34wq is a better deal. Yes it’s 8bit panel but all of them are after 100hz refresh rate limit. Gigabyte goes for 650$ and gsync also works on it. This is the only monitor in my books that can mix work and pleasure at same time for that price point.

Personally I would like to see gsync chip can AMD freesync due to being better optimized for NVIDIA cards, thunderbolt 3 and 38inch. However that is NOWHERE to be found. Yes Samsung neo g9 has all those bells and whistles but it suffers quality control. Till then cheaper alternative it is.

lol no one uses hdmi in the pc world, get a dp cable and call it a day. the hdmi 2.1 support is made for new tv's not screens with existing capabilities. your recommendation for the gigabyte monitor is a suggestion for a screen in a completely different class dude, bad rec.

I already bought the Dell S3422DWG 34" but the damn thing is taking forever to ship (Current ship date @ Jan 30 after being delayed, ordered Dec 27). I'm debating whether I cancel the dell order and get this.

Does anyone have thoughts?

The S3422DWG is a VA panel and I found the smearing on it was really bad (even when compared to other VA panels) to the point where I returned it. The few extra hundred for IPS is worth it IMO, especially if you keep your monitors for a long time.

Ended up going with an AW3821DW because I really value the extra vertical pixels.

Amazing monitor, had mine for a year and 2 months. N9 ghosting or uniformity issues.

Here comes the but... didn't have any issues until recently, dead pixels started appearing randomly, 3 so far (1800+ hours usage). Just my luck. The electronic roulette

You think they made a panel, saying it runs as 160hz but isn't able to? No 160hz over hdmi*** Display Port, man, display port.

True but I came from literally that setup to this exact monitor and I don't think I could go back.

Ultrawide with no bezel break in the middle is a gamechanger...not sure why it has such a big impact but it does. Using this for 70/30 WFH/gaming screen.

DP1.4 if more than sufficient for a 34" ultrawide and can handle 160Hz with bandwidth to spare. Get a USB-C to DP cable if your laptop supports video out through USB-C. There's no need for a USB-C input on the monitor for video.

DP1.4 also supports 10-bit colour depth at 144Hz easily at 3440x1440. You'd only have to drop to 8-bit colour depth if you use the 160Hz overclocked refresh rate.

Here is the thing. I have one PC with NVIDIA DP, and second is MacBook. Thats why i need USB-C input at one source.

That's a fair point. You could always purchase a DP switch, but that's just another incurred cost.
