  • Overall good monitor but the HDR seems useless

    Basically, I am a big fan of the IPS-panel monitor. This is one of them. Good color balance, brightness, and readability. Also, the user interface is very good. However, I do not satisfy the HDR color profile; so I do not use the HDR. Maybe, it is still good for gaming and movie, not for web browsing. One thing more, I purchased an "open box - excellent" item. The monitor was delivered without the soft plastic cover between the panel and styrofoam. I recommend you to buy a new one.

    i wanted ultra-wides to work on and i originally thought these might be on the smaller side... i was wrong. TONS of real estate and i can keep all the windows that i need open in within view! perfect for my office.

    I've read the posts prior to buying this monitor and now as an owner, I have to agree with a previous poster. He said, at first it was weird but now he won't use anything else. I agree. After using standard monitors all my computer life, having this UltraWide took some getting used to. Now after using it for some time, I won't give it up either. It's really great for multi-tasking. I have multiple screens up at the same time and I can see this would have real value for spreadsheets. Some of the web sites I go to now display the entire grid of data without me having to scroll back and forth to the edges. Because it has a 21 by 9 aspect ratio, what needs to be accepted is if you do a web search, sometimes you'll have a lot of white space on the side. Also, some of the sites that I stream from don't fill up the entire screen and you will have black space on each side. In addition, it does not have built-in speakers or a webcam. In my case, neither one of those is an issue. Something to consider if that will bother you. If this one dies on me, I'll be replacing it with another UltraWide. There's no going back.
