    The OLED is made by LG, they aren't sending it here to Australia :( But Japan may get it!

    I haven't gamed with it yet (except for Eve via my connected laptop which probably isn't a good gaming judge) however I'm hoping that my Samsung C34H89 1440p holds up pretty well with 100hz. Outside of gaming its a nice monitor for the price

    Just ordered an lg 34gk950f. Fingers crossed i fare well in the panel lottery for backlight bleed etc. Very keen to try 3440x1440.

    Heads-up, Skycomp are selling (pre-ordering) the ASUS MX38VC for $1680

    38" curved IPS 3840x1600 with all the fruit

    Only downside is its a 75hz so not ideal for gaming but still Freesync, Blutooth, QI charging, PbB and PiP, USB C input and 10w speakers

    RRP on this bad boy is like $2400 i think

    Recieved my lg 34gk950f, running it on an MSI RTX2080 Super and it is breathtaking. Very happy with the panel, games and movies look epic.

    I've recently purchased the LG 38gl950 and am completely sold on the form factor coming from a X34. If you're not interested in high refresh rates this wouldn't be a bad deal.
    In saying that, I believe some higher refresh rate freesync versions of the LG 38gl950 are coming shortly so I'd expect better deals to come soon. Imo, this is the sweet spot for people looking to upgrade from a 34

    Yeah the monitor market is in a tough position right now, not many new models around plus COVID19 has hit manufacturing hard and so a lot of the higher-end stuff like this is out of stock.

    I’m testing my patience playing the waiting game!

    That's the difficulty with monitors in general, hard to see before you purchase. Sometimes just have to purchase and hope for the best.

    That's good to hear, I'm looking at getting the same monitor but the 34GK950F-B variant (I haven't been able to find anything about what's different between the two). Coming from a 23" Dell IPS and a 19" Samsung and I'm really looking forward to it - hopefully my graphics card will be ok for now RX480 8Gb (I pretty much only play World of Warships at the moment, but play the Division 1/2 and Diablo 3 - I know it probably won't cope with Div 1/2 at high spec), but I'll be building a new rig at the end of the year, which will resolve this.

    Mine has been superseded already, the LG 34GN850-B is out now with 165hz refresh. Wish i knew as i waited 4 months to buy this one and two weeks later that came out haha.

    That's a GSYNC variant though, I have AMD graphics card, and likely to have another when I upgrade, I am glad that nvidia cards don't need the module anymore, hopefully that will simplify the monitor market soon.
