Couldn't be happier

Fantastic improvement over 16:9 for race sim and flight sim. Productivity benefits as well, with either wide single window for spreadsheets or video editing, or double/triple windows for referencing multiple sources. Perfect format for full screen movies. Avoiding all the modern monitor frills and waiting for a sale make it a great deal. Was concerned about monitor height (none of them rise high enough for me) but was able to make a 6 inch extension using the existing base, which happened to fit perfectly in the tight space around my other peripherals. Lucky break there.

This thing sucks

I bought this for my son last week and it already is broken. he barely used is for a week and yet this still manged to break.

Great Value!

I bought this monitor during BestBuy sale! First of all, I have a gtx1050ti and can run this monitor @75Hz. The matte finish is nicer than those that have a glossy finish. Screen size is not an issue (Tim from Oakville does not understand the difference between 16:9 and 21:9 aspect ratios!). You should be comparing this 29 inch 2560 x 1080 screen to a 24 inch 1920 x 1080 screen! If you are used to a 27 inch 1920 x 1080 screen, you need to get the 34 inch 2560 x 1080 screen. The height of a 29 inch ultra-wide is the same as the height for a 24 inch high-def screen. The 34 inch ultra-wide has the same height as the 27 inch screen. Overall this is a great value for productivity, casual gaming, and watching movies (no black bars above or below, instead you only get black bars to the left & right when watching movies & tv shows that are 16:9).

Great Utrawide!

Love this monitor! It looks great on my desk. I use it mostly for reading and excel, no gaming, so I'm not sure how it performs under those conditions.

  • from Oakville, ON

Returning immediately because of the size

It says 29", but it is actually 15% shorter / narrower than the tradition 27" 16:9 monitor. This so call 29" is also 3% smaller than the 16:9 27" measuring by screen area. As you would noticed, due to it's "29inch" spec, and ultra-wide feature, it have a higher price than regular 27" monitor...

  • from ottawa, ON

good but could be better

Pro-good quality screen. nice resolution. included hdmi cable. Con-not adjustable. no height, no angle adjustment. Sits too low for me, have to get some kind of shelf not to lift it higher for my eyes. Also took while to find the power button!!

  • from PEI

Smaller than you think, but very wide

Don't expect a huge monitor with this 29" spec. It sure is wide but the height is a little disappointing compared to a traditional monitor. Brightness isn't as nice as I would like, considering returning it for a standard sized monitor for the same price. Be sure to view it before you buy.

Amazing value!

Using it with a MacBook Pro. Scales perfectly. I was worried about going from 'retina' to this resolution but it's totally fine. I use it for financial trading charts which look amazing.

  • from Oshawa, ON

One of the best Ultrawide's out there!

This is a great product to mix gaming, browsing, and documents in your setup. The display is awesome, Free Sync is done well, and colors and images are clear and crisp. If you are setting up your first workstation, this monitor would be a great combination with a spare monitor. I would recommend it as a great beginner's Ultrawide.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Very Nice

Pixel density is fine, a major improvement is in aesthetics as the front is a matte finish, the control panel has also been shifted to be behind the monitor this time.
