    Hi,

    About to pull the trigger on this, replacing an X34. Anything elser anyone would recommend? Key to me is as high a refresh rate as possible and ultrawide format. 200 hz appeals as lots of future proofing. HDR be nice in future I am sure too. Excluded the asus equivilent as getting this for £300 cheaper.

    Arrived today, the 200 hz over the 34A really is night and day. I only have one kidney now, but who needs two!

    The colours look a little washed out. Any recommendations or trusted guides to calibrate?

    Thanks,

    With how old these VA panels are and how good the latest Samsungs are, I'd wait for the next releases personally.

    Had the same issue with my Dell (VA issue generally I think). Have a play with the colours and digital vibrance, worked for me now I'm v v happy with it!

    I would enable wide gamut mode or SRGB.
    As far as monitors go, these are still the kings for HDR. Next to no smearing either. I think the Samsungs probably beat these for input lag though.

    Thanks guys. I got it yesterday, so too late too wait. 200 hz and ultrawide was just too good to turn down.

    I managed to get a good deal on an open box too, so was pricy but not insane. Well was insane, but less so.

    Cool, i will try all of the above. Any other settings i should look at?

    Thanks

    Monitor is probably worth more than my PC now. Doesn't feel right. Still rocking a 1080ti until the 3080 ti is out.

    Stuck the vibrancy up to 75% and looks a lot better. Is that typical?

    I find it can help with VA's, I use anything upto 65 tbh.
