Seems like the USB C issue isn't a big one for my Mac can just get a DP to USB C. Wish this monitor had speakers!

Is the Amazon warranty worth getting for this monitor or is it a waste? The reason I'm asking is that LG only offers a one year warranty.

That company doesn't seem to have the best reviews from what I've seen.

What panels do people think goes into LCD TVs that have to compete in a much larger but competitive market? HINT: It's not IPS
You mean VA panels, like for instance, the ones people are saying are worse in comparison to the IPS?

Hmm

There's a reason companies hire experts to determine the best image quality panel tech and came to the conclusion that VA is the best in a market with fierce competition, not random people's word of mouth

In the list of countless TVs manufactured, it's clear how minor the percentage are IPS, especially among the hi-end models

From your own link " viewing angle of VA-type TVs is also problematic when the TV is used as a PC monitor from up close since the edges of the display look washed out."

Monitors and tvs have different use cases, so none of it is relevant.

Ended up going with an AW3821DW because I really value the extra vertical pixels.
Perhaps you got a dud? Ii also have the same panel. While VA is subject to smearing, IPS glow is also very annoying and has a low contrast ratio. It really depends on the person. I wouldnt game in a dark room and dark games with an IPS.

But yes I would agree IPS is better but not 300$ better in this case for me personally.

I have a LG IPS 27UL650 and when i compare side by side with the S3422DWG the colors do pop on the IPS.

I like my Dell, and 799 is a big difference from 499. I dont doubt that the LG is better but not almost at double the price.

I recently bought the LG 32GP83B-B for a steal, at $349 from BestBuy. This ultrawide is a decent deal, but it's not worth it for me at twice the price I paid.

Decent value for a very good IPS ultrawide.

Cheers.

If you're buying a 34" monitor, you aren't exactly sitting close to the LCD, unless you want to incur unecessary eye strain that could lead to myopia from the eye lens being elongated all the time, in order to focus on short distances.

I'm about 90cm away from my 27"

I have thought about that method, but then:
-DP switch
-make sure you have less than 1m of 1.4 dp cable (as longer cables will introduce flickering)
-thunderport 4 to 1.4 dp
-and after all of that, i still need to add more cables for MAC power, USB keyboard+mouse which then cable management is never appealing to eye
-Oh and there is lots of then in between what can go wrong at any point.

Thats why i think dedicated port is much much better solution.

If you're upset about a tech product dropping in price, just wait until you find out what happens to your car once you drive off the lot :P
