    I have had this monitor LG 34WP60C-B for the last couple of days.
    So far its great for gaming but browsing and desktop stuff it gives me a headache.
    I have changed the scale of text to 125% and it helps but I wish I had got the 32" 2k one.LG UltraGear 32 Inch Gaming Monitor, QHD IPS 1ms Monitor, 165Hz Refresh Rate, NVIDIA® G-SYNC® Compatibility32GP750-B.

    I wonder if I can swap it. I got it from lg direct.

    Try splitting your browser windows to two side by side.

    It's because of a VA panel.

    VA panels give ghosting event subtle ghosting is likely causing the headaches

    I use Dell IPS screens.

    One dell 30" ultrasharp
    one Dell 34" ultrawide

    Both are IPS

    Try disabling HDR when you’re doing desktop duties, shortcut is win+alt+B

    i have a super UW 5120x1440. Good for my driving sims
    When browsing i don't use the full screen, just two windows open mostly. Means i don't have to move my eyes or head across the screen all the time

    I went from 32" 2560x1440 to 34" 3440x1440 to 38" 3840x1600 to 43" 3840x2160 to 49" 5120x1440 then to back to 38" 3840x1600.

    Too bad the 21:9 currently go from 34" and jump up to 45" pretty much; not many 38" 3840x1600 to choose from, but I think it's a great sweet spot for screen real estate, productivity, and flexibility with a variety of content.

    How is 38" 3840x1600 better than 43" 3840x2160?

    It's basically the same thing, right? 3840x1600 is just 3840x2160 with a haircut.

    On paper yeah similar? In practice definitely quite noticeably different, though definitely each to their own - for me, a 38" can still be mounted reasonably on a monitor arm, is curved for slightly better immersion, so you can bring it in closer to you (including up/down) without having extra vertical slab of monitor physically in front of you.

    Not saying 3840x1600 is a superior resolution to 3840x2160, because it's not, but the combination of the physical form factor while still having a decent-enough resolution works well for my usage anyway.

    Another thing with my 43" 4K display is, often I felt like sitting at the desk I'd have to look upwards abit, which can be slightly fatiguing.

    Yes, but with a 16:9 OLED you can just make a custom 21:9 resolution and get the best of both worlds. :lol:

    Take your point on curved being able to be closer and using a smaller monitor arm. I have my 48" on a monitor arm, but it's a monster.
