    Is the dynamic refresh rate just overclocking or using free sync,? Its also only 1080p so might look a bit average over 35"

    For a kids gaming monitor probably fine

    Well dynamic refresh rate is free sync in industry terms. Worth a look.
    1089 vertical pixels wo t look any worse than a 1080p 24 inch

    You can always run games at 1080 on a high res monitor for the fps boost until you upgrade.
    My kids pc has a 1050ti that struggles playing Skyrim at 1440p but at 1080p it never goes under 60 fps - and still looks good when scaled to fill the 32" screen.

    I'd be keen on the 34" 100hz Kogan monitor for myself but would like to read some independent reviews first.

    Would love to find them on the used marked. 300 bucks would be sweet.

    There probably will be some good deals coming soon as cheap Korean high hz 4k monitor quality gets competitive with the brand names and 1440p becomes yesterdays tech.
    :lol:It gives you time to buy a $200 1060 6gb or a $300 1070 off the forums (altho I also liked my 6950 back in the day)

    Don't buy the Polaroid 35" monitors. Took them home and they were DOA, exchanged for new one (wasted $10 of fuel and parking costs and 2 hours of time) and the second unit was also faulty.

    I went with an ASUS ROG xg35vq instead, costs double the price at $900 dollars but it has 3 years of warranty and most importantly it has no dead pixels.

    If you're buying a Korean LCD monitor it will be wise the ask the seller to do a check prior to sending it out. Korean off-brands may sometimes have a few stuck pixels (the seller usually says it's normal to have between 1-5 stuck pixels and this is deemed to be within an acceptable range).

    You can sometimes pay more for a "pixel perfect" type of insurance which means they pick out some monitors, test them and then send you one that has no dead pixels but it doesn't guarantee that it will develop them down the track.
