    I've eyed off the LG 38" original for years wishing it had more chops.

    Now it does, and you have the Ultrawide Samsung HDR 1000.

    Decisions, decisions, lol

    My current Perfect but also sort of realistic withing the next few years would be 4K, OLED (with no Burn in) 120+Hz for Sub $1000.

    Even with a 2080 Ti, I expect I'll be struggling to push 144Hz on this - but it's absolutely the monitor I'll be upgrading to late this year. I haven't been as excited about a monitor since 2007's Acer Predator XB270HU back in 2015, which was groundbreaking at the time (IPS, 27" 1440p, 144Hz).

    Still significantly cheaper than the current 27" 4k 144hz HDR Gsync monitors being sold at $2800 - $3000 if it is.

    Yep I paid 1500 or so for my 32" 4k gsync a year ago. Nothing new and shiny is cheap. I would highly consider this monitor on release

    I thought 34" 32:9 was the equivalent of 2 24" monitors side by side. Seems like a 38" would be same as 2 27" monitors. I need to upgrade from my 2 in my sig but going to wait until later in the year as there's some really cool tech coming out.

    Also 1080 vertical lines on a 49" monitor is pathetic.

    Well when I say really cool, I mean the TV tech is trickling down to gaming monitors with HDR, OLED etc. Will be good to finally get 'affordable' ultrawides with OLED, high refresh rate and good colour reproduction.

    I dunno, I'm not sold on this aspect ratio. I've got a Dell 38" 3840x1600 at home, and a 43" 3840x2160 16:9 monitor at work. On the 38" I always feel like it's cramped vertically. I regularly miss those 560 pixels.

    Maybe it'd be different if I didn't use the bigger one half the time.
