    Yeah the 49" tempted me, but then I just pulled my PG348Q closer to me for the same effect :D

    Do you get the image stretching at the sides on your 34" screen?

    Nope. I suspect it's just using a 21:9 ratio and stretching it out a bit at the sides...

    It's a kitchen worktop I got from a local joinery place, I'd measured up the width of the room and had it cut to roughly that size, built some supports against the wall for it, then when I got it into the room cut it to size fitted it and put the legs on for aesthetics and support at the front.

    I ended up returning the 32" model, The HDR feature was just not good enough with it's measly 8 zones, Brightness was not up to HDR10 standards, And the minimum Freesync range was too high for my liking, Maybe in another year or so when they have a much lower minimum Freesync range and at least a few hundred dimming zones like other HDR monitors akin to Dells which has 384 local dimming zones.

    Indeed, It's nearly there though, If they have the same Quantum Dot 144Hz panel BUT with a lot more local dimming zones and a much lower Freesync minimum then it will be an instant buy for me.

    How much will that cost?

    Shouldn't be too much more as it will be the same actual Quantum Dot panel as the current one to my knowledge but just with a lower Freesync floor and more dimming zones.

    I don't see the lower Freesync floor being a cost issue, and this monitor is meant to be Freesync 2... people are talking about the possibility of a firmware update.

    However, I wonder if significantly more dimming zones with significantly increase the cost. Why did they go with only 8 this time?

    My 32' CHG70 arrived yesterday.
    Lovely screen, im moving up from a samsung 27' IPS. (S27b970d)

    Has anyone managed to update the firmware, what did you find?..
    Talk on reddit suggests that it borked things.
    Didn't really get much of a chance to really test it last night, resident evil 7 doesn't recgonize that it's HDR..Although BF1 did show some HDR Options.

    It does look so much better than my previous display.
    A very nice screen, although the stand does take up a huge portion of space.

    Why would you want to update the firmware on it?

    Because one of the fixes in latest Firmware was to increase Free sync range.
