All in all, you can’t go wrong with the Acer X35; it offers an incredible image quality as well as a smooth performance and plenty of useful features.
In case you got a limited budget, you should at least save up for the Sceptre C305B, but the G34WQC delivers a lot more immersive and responsive gaming experience which is why we highly recommend it as the best value pick.
If you can afford something a bit fancier, the LG 34GP83A, the Samsung G9 and the LG 38GN950 (depending on your budget and preference) will provide you with an otherworldly gaming and viewing experience.

1.LG 29WK600-W 29″
- 29 inch ultra wide 21:9 full HD IPS monitor
- HDR10 compatible
Here to save your tech life from complete irrelevance is the new LG 29WK600-W. LG’s newest monitor is 29 inches of widescreen wonder. Featuring a stunning 21:9 aspect ratio, the UltraWide HD IPS monitor is a PC display for the modern worker. Every inch of this bad boy displays an amazingly color accurate picture. With over 99% sRGB coverage, a 2560 x 1080 resolution and an HDR 10 compatible high dynamic range, the LG display is not only massive, but the picture is displays is absolutely stunning.
Measuring in at 27.5” x 16.2” x 8.2” and weighing about 11.5 pounds with the stand attached, this flat screen monitor packs in a sturdy heft. It definitely doesn’t feel like it will fall apart in your hands, which is a problem that some monitors with cheaper build qualities sometimes have.back to menu ↑
- 30" Curved Gaming Monitor 2560 x 1080 Full HD Resolution. Response Time- 5ms GTG
- DP Up to 200Hz Refresh Rate / HDMI 2. 0 Up to 120Hz Refresh Rate: More than double the standard refresh rate, 200Hz gives gamers an edge in visibility as frames transition instantly, leaving behind no blurred images
The Sceptre C305B monitor is based on a 29.5″ VA (Vertical Alignment) panel with a static contrast ratio of 3,000:1, a peak brightness of 250-nits, 8-bit color depth support, and ~90% sRGB color gamut.
In comparison to IPS ultrawides, you don’t get as vibrant or accurate colors. Still, you do get a higher contrast ratio, which makes for deeper blacks and a more vivid relation between the brightest and the darkest shades.
The colors look good on the Sceptre C305B-200UN nonetheless, it’s more than bright enough under normal viewing conditions, and it’s a real treat when playing content in a dark room where you can really take advantage of the monitor’s high contrast ratio.back to menu ↑
3.AOC CU34G2X 34″
- 34" Class (34" Viewable) AOC Gaming G2 Series monitor with 3440x1440 Ultra wide Quad HD (2K+) resolution VA panel
- Rapid 1ms response (MPRT) and 144Hz refresh rate with Adaptive-Sync for ultra-smooth competitive game play Curve radius: 1500mm
The AOC CU34G2X is a great ultrawide gaming monitor. It has a 144Hz panel with Adaptive Sync support, so even though it’s not officially certified by AMD nor NVIDIA for variable refresh rate (VRR) support, FreeSync and G-SYNC still both work on it.
It has low input lag, and although it has a quick overall response time, there’s visible black smearing, which is typical of VA panels. Speaking of which, it has a high native contrast ratio, but that means it has narrow viewing angles, so it’s not ideal for co-op gaming. The 34 inch screen and 3440×1440 resolution help deliver an immersive gaming experience, and it has a fairly aggressive 1500R curve to bring the edges of the screen within your field of vision.back to menu ↑
- First Curved monitor with Intel Thunderbolt 3 for single-source power and charging
- One cable to Link and dock monitor and laptop
The Samsung C34J791 is a decent monitor for mixed usage. It has a large ultrawide screen with ample resolution that favors multitasking but unfortunately, it has poor viewing angles. It is very responsive to your actions but you should avoid placing it in a very bright room as it cannot fight bright room glare.
It has great gray uniformity, which is great for browsing the web, but the bad viewing angles make it unsuitable for working side by side with a colleague. It has great motion handling with a fast 100Hz refresh rate, supports FreeSync and has a low input lag to please gamers.back to menu ↑
- PANORAMIC SCREEN: Immersive ultra wide 35" curved monitor and 3440x1440 resolution with 1800R curvature, wide viewing angle, 21: 9 aspect ratio, ultra-slim bezel
- PATENTED EYE-CARE FOR EXTENDED PLAY: Brightness Intelligence Plus uses a proprietary sensor to adapt screen brightness and color temperature to your in-room lighting. B. I. + works with Zero Flicker and Low Blue Light to help combat eye strain, blurred vision, and fatigue
The generous selection of ports includes two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort, one USB Type-C port, two ordinary USB 3.0 ports, and a headphone jack. They are all in back, facing downward under a strip of metal, which is never an ideal arrangement but felt unusually cumbersome with this display.
With the monitor upright, I wasn’t able to see the ports from the back, nor insert an HDMI cable in its port by touch alone. I had to turn the monitor screen-down to connect the cable, and gingerly at that, as its mount felt a bit flimsy. That, combined with the monitor’s size and weight, made port access unwieldy.back to menu ↑
