    Does the model number really have to have SEXXY at the end of it...

    Nice. Congrats. The postage was $190 for me so wasn't really worth it as I'd rather just buy locally for another $10. Did they advise ETA?

    Doesn't look like much more ghosting than by XB271HU IPS to be honest. I'm more curious on the HDR, colour, contrast and local dimming qualities.

    My 3840x1080 sammy screen is going to be worth a toilet after its release.

    Given the long release time I’m waiting...stuff like LG 38GL950G (38” 3840x1600 144Hz Gsync) might tempt me more if they release earlier

    I've got the 49" 3840x1080 Samsung screen, and I feel now that there is such a thing as too much monitor for gaming. I'd go one of the smaller ultrawides. Fantastic for work, though, which is what I bought it for (to replace 3x24" monitors).

    I ran 3x27 120hz inch in Surround. 5760x1080. It was fantastic. But a little too wide with the fish eye stretched image on the far sides. Double wide with no bezels will be perfect for me.

    Tbh I don’t care so much for high hz, I prefer playing with settings maxed at 60fps....hoping around June/July some of these monitors become available (also like Acer x35 etc) and I can pick one

    I tend to buy higher end monitors and keep them for like 5 years so not concerned if I can’t make full use of the high hz just yet

    so you prefer a laggy 16ms+ over a smooth 10ms-
    you must not play any response heavy games

    True

    I hear gsync/FreeSync makes a big difference at 50-60fps though, which is what I usually play at. Right now with adaptive sync or fast sync, it’s great at 60fps but tears whenever it’s a bit under 60
