Best monitor I've owned
Posted by: Corey from: on
By far, the best monitor I've owned. I was a little hesitate over the X34, because the color scheme, but it actually looks really good! You don't really see the weird grey and orange, it looks cool in the dark.
Performance-wise it's very nice. I like how you can over clock the panel to 100Hz. G-Sync is the best thing in the world when it comes to gaming, if you have an Nvidia card (as AMD won't work.) It also has a lot of cinematic lighting options to tune it to a particular game.
Overall if you want to use this monitor, it comes at a big cost, and I'm not referring to the monitor itself. You will need at least a 980ti to get decent FPS; however, I recommend a 1070 or 1080. I'm using a 1070 STRIX and average about 70 frames on Fallout 4 with heavy visual mods, such as true 2k and 4k textures. I won't recommend this monitor to anyone using a 980 or below, as you can't push out the power, and the 7-series and below can't even use G-Sync.

The best gaming monitor money can buy!
Posted by: DGAF9K from: on
I was torn between this monitor and the Acer X34 Predator, however I feel I made the right choice in going with the Asus. Everything about it is perfect. 21:9, 3440x1440, G-SYNC, and 100Hz. This is the best gaming monitor you can buy. Don't hesitate to pick one up if your budget allows!

If you're thinking of buying it, just do it and think me later. Was between this and 4k, I've played 4k and its not worth what you lose in this monitor

Very good gaming monitor
Posted by: DanB from: on
Overall, I am happy with the monitor. Gaming performance is excellent especially when paired with a G-Sync capable video card. My rig is equipped with a 980 GTX SC and I am able to play games such as Doom and Fallout 4 at maximum settings with very good performance. Fallout 4 needed some manual adjustments to support the 21:9 aspect ration of the monitor, but that in no way detracts from the monitor itself. Gaming becomes an immersive experience with this monitor!
Also, the physical construction quality is very good! The stand is very well made and quite beefy and heavy. The cutesy little downward projecting ROG light is "on the geeky side of things" but then this monitor is meant to appeal to the PC gaming crowd!
Furthermore, viewing multiple documents simultaneously or working with wide spreadsheets is a *pleasure* thanks to the copious viewing area. My wife was green with envy since she develops training and on-line content for a living, and I believe she is plotting to commandeer my monitor during the work week!
By the way, did I mention this monitor is *huge*? I have to keep my system tower on top of my desk to provide adequate airflow for cooling, so I had to remove a lot of my desk items to make room for the monitor and I have a 60" wide desk.
Finally, there are two reasons this monitor received four stars instead of 5:
1. Some back-light bleed at the corners. It is not obtrusive when gaming and they appear to have made progress in their manufacturing processes; one reason I did not buy this monitor a year ago was due to the number of complaints of substantial back-light bleed at the time.
2. Poor accessibility to the various connectors. They are in a recessed pocket located on the bottom of the monitor which is hard to access especially for someone like myself that has large hands. They are also very hard to see and I found myself having to tip the monitor forward so that I could see well enough to insert a USB cable; very cumbersome! Asus earns points for providing what amounts to a USB 3.0 compliant "hub" along with a connection cable, but the ports are so hard to access that they aren't very usable for day-to-day use with portable USB devices. I plan to permanently install a couple of short USB 3.0 extension cables so that I can actually use the ports. I think that Asus should abandon the current location and provide a separate hub that snaps on to the bottom of the monitor or onto the lower part of the stand (and nix the ROG lighting) so that the ports are usable.

The Pinnacle Of Gaming Monitors
Posted by: Negativepenalty from: on
I decided to pair my Rig with this beast of a monitor and was not disappointed! The moment I assembled it just screamed quality and immediately felt justified with the hefty price tag. Colors are accurate, the 100hz is amazing, G-sync is great and the screen real estate is just fantastic for multi tasking and what we all bought it for, GAMING! If you are having second thoughts about purchasing, I implore you to seriously reconsider! You will thank yourself once you own this monster monitor!!!

Awesome gaming monitor
Posted by: grazk from: on
I use this monitor to play Fallout, Dragon Age and World of Tanks. The difference between my Acer 24" and this Asus 34" is unbelievable. This monitor is so vivid and I'm almost able to see my entire garage in WoT! I do see a couple hiccups in the monitor with a couple glitches in the cut scenes. This is partially because I have a 4 year old i5 processor and a 970 video card, but it's so infrequent that it doesn't matter.
I also use this monitor for my work and to be able to view 2 programs side by side in addition to my laptop monitor makes it a much more useful workstation than my setup at work!
Expensive, but I don't see myself returning it.
