Pros & Cons

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.

2.ViewSonic VP3481

Pros & Cons

The VP3481 has a simple, straightforward design. The base has a large 15.5-by-10.5-inch footprint; from it emerges a bifurcated shaft (through which you can snake cables) to which the cabinet is attached. The base and shaft are mostly plastic, but they seem stable enough.

With the stand fully extended (its height can be raised by as much as 5.1 inches), the monitor measures 24 by 31.9 by 11.8 inches (HWD). It also supports swivel and tilt adjustment in addition to height. The top and side bezels are nearly invisible, which maximizes screen area and serves it well in a multi-monitor array.

3.BenQ EX3501R

Pros & Cons

While HDR (high dynamic range), a display technology that offers higher contrast and more vivid colors, is becoming ever more commonplace in TVs it hasn’t really taken off yet in PC monitors. So when a monitor like the BenQ EX3501R comes along boasting HDR support, we sit up and we take notice.

And the fact that HDR is only one of a wide range of exciting features on the BenQ EX3501R means we couldn’t wait to unbox it and try it out.

An ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, AMD FreeSync support and USB-C connectivity are all here, which ticks a lot of the boxes on our monitor wish-list, and we were looking forward to seeing just what this screen can do.


Pros & Cons

The Samsung C34J791 is a 34” ultrawide monitor with mediocre picture quality. It has a high contrast ratio due to its VA panel and displays deep but not too uniform blacks. It is more suitable for an average lit room as it cannot get very bright to 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.

5.Sceptre Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros & Cons

With a pronounced curve and gamer-friendly features, the Sceptre C328B-144KN not only delivers a better gaming experience than its flat-screen counterparts, but does so for much less. It includes a chock-full of features, including adaptive video inputs, multiple gaming modes (FPS and RTS) and a speedy 144Hz refresh rate.

While its viewing angle performance is slightly middling, this 32-inch gaming monitor uses AMD’s FreeSync anti-tearing technology to deliver smooth gaming performance. For a few dollars more, the AOC C3583FQ, our top pick for large screen gaming monitors is a better deal. But if your budget is strictly limited, the Sceptre C328B is worth a look.


Best Cheap Ultrawide Monitors – Ultrawide monitors deliver a much more immersive gaming experience than standard 16:9 monitors. Although not quite as immersive as VR headsets, ultrawide monitors allow you to see more of your surroundings without constantly having to pan around, and they’re extremely well-suited for first-person games.
