Where are the larger (32-40") Non-Curved, 1440P+, 120hz+ Freesync Displays?

    Current have a Xiaomi 34" UWQHD 144Hz Curved and it works perfectly.

    I came from a 32" 1440P QHD non-ultrawide, non-curved and I think I prefer a flat screen and more vertical real estate.

    There seems to be a huge gap in the display lineup from 32" --> 55" if you're wanting a non-curved screen with a high refresh rate.

    There's this one at the 32" end: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Monitors/25plus-inch/81200-32GK850F-B

    And then this at the 55" end: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/...0hz-gaming-monitor-freesync-g-sync-compatible

    Everything in between seems to be Ultra wide and/or curved. I know those 40/43" Philips screens were around, but they're 4k60.

    Are there any other screens around that I may have missed?

    I've been doing the exact same search at the moment, I'm coming from 16:10 30" 60hz and don't want to lose any height.

    Have a read of:

    https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/high_refresh_rate.htm

    but the TLDR is that there is not much coming. The best one on the horizon is the ASUS PG329Q which is a 32 inch IPS 165hz, which means you keep the vertical height and IPS quality with high refresh.

    Halfway between those two sizes?

    https://www.asus.com/au/Monitors/ROG-Strix-XG438Q/

    I would assume part of the reason there isn't many around would be due to manufacturing yields and being able to cut more screens out of a single sheet when doing ultrawide?

    Oh, nice. Didn't see that one, thought the Asus' were all curved.

    Strange that there aren't any 34/36/38's that aren't UW. You could be right about the yields as well.

    Yea, hopefully they're not far off as we move toward cheaper 1440p gpus

    This is the type of monitor I have been searching for for the last 3 days, any idea on release date?

    Nothing except reddit rumour. The Acer equivalent is the Predator XB323U but thats been MIA since a listing in China in May.

    This MSI is the same panel though and seems to be in stock:

    This MSI is not G-Sync compat though.

    Couuuuuuld you deal with a 28" and 60hz? Not ticking all of your boxes... but

    Samsung UR55 28" 4k flat is a beautiful panel which is Freesync 60hz and cheeeeeeap. I use it in portrait mode for my editing due to the colour range and great blacks

    I find the DPI on a 28" 4k to be too fine, 32+ is the minimum for 4K for me personally.

    I have the following on my home office setup - 28" 4k Lenovo 60Hz / 30" Dell 16:10 1600p 60Hz / 27" Viewsonic 16:9 1440p 144hz. I regret getting the 28" 4K, wish I grabbed another 27" 1440 or replaced the Dell with a larger 4K monitor as the extra screen real-estate is unusable at 28" with such a fine DPI and games need freesync with more Hz.

    4K is for young eyes, if you want to actually read anything on screen. My 1440P monitor is on 150% size most of the time. Even though its only 2 feet from my face, I can't read the text with native 1440P.

    I have noticed the lack of mid range high refresh stuff over 1440P in flat screens though. There are times when I think I should get a high refresh monitor, if only so I could be one of the cool kids :lol: but they are all curved screens it seems. I don't particularly like curved screens, and even then, they seem to be mostly VA panels, whereas I prefer IPS.

    I'll just stick with my 27" 1440P 60Hz IPS flat panel for now I think. Those Samsung UR55's look pretty good for 500 bucks or so though. Freesync 60Hz would be nice for video at least. GSync is worthless to me, I run a Radeon GPU, and I don't game much anyway (although I've been getting into Flight Simulator 2020 a fair bit lately, 4K would be nice for that).

    Most of my video files are in 4K, it would be nice to have the clarity to do them justice. Not nice enough for me to spend 500 bucks I don't need to spend, but if someone were to buy me one for Xmas, I'd accept.

    Me too mate.
    I've got a highend Dell 27" 1440. And I' wear a nice pair of multifocals but I think they are half the problem.
    I might order some dedicated reading glasses and try those. Multifocals are fine in the lounge room 8-10m away but not 2ft from the puter.

    No chance 4k would suit as a pc monitor for me. You need perfect vision. Anyone in their 40's, beware. That's when the deterioration begins.

    The Asus one is interesting, seems to be using a different panel to the Acer/MSI?
    98% DCI vs 99% Adobe RGB

    Depends on dot pitch (and size) I guess - I have a 38" UW 3840x1600 and it's OK for my old eyes, but it's about as fine as I'd want (without scaling). Any higher res and it'd have to be physically bigger too, which would be getting a bit cumbersome.

    I did use a 4K 43" Dell 16:9 screen at work for a while, and it was about similar in terms of the size of things at native res without scaling, but it gave me a sore neck from having to look around it all the time .. .was a bit too physically big vertically :D

    Dot pitch (just from some Dell monitors)
    38" UW 3840x1600 = 0.229 mm
    43" 4K 16:9 = 0.2451 mm
    27" 4K 16:9 = 0.1554 mm (way to small for my old eyes without scaling)
    55" 4K 16:9 = 0.315mm :D

    A great size and spec for gaming would be 30in 16:10 1440p OLED, but they persist with shitty LCD at too small 27in or too big 32in.

    The monitor makers persist with gimmicky crap rather than increase the raw picture quality.

    16:10 would be 1600p. I have a few 30" 16:10 IPS screens but unfortunately they're all 60Hz. Great for work, excellent FoV for gaming on my desk (don't need to turn my head to see the whole screen) but no gsync/adaptive sync.

    I tried flanking the 30" with a 28" 4k & 27" 1440p 144hz screens to see whether they would be contenders to replace the main screen, but found the 27" slightly too small and the 4k DPI too fine.
    Unfortunately it looks like manufactures have all but dropped the 16:10 format in 4k, outside of very high quality photo realistic screens at a ridiculous price. It seems there's just not enough demand from the 16:10 gaming crowd.

    27in isn't a bad size but 32in is huge for a computer screen on a desk, so 30in makes sense to me.
    Admittedly some lcds are decent these days, but OLED is automatic reference quality.

    I didn't know it till I got my note 20ultra, but my never say die Samsung tab s from 2014 crushes the blacks, but the notes screen really is unbelievable.

    Samsung put this screen into the tab s7 at 11.5in or whatever, surely they could make a 30in oled gaming monitor by now.
