It appears that it does. On another note I own the LG non curved version of this and the picture quality is amazing.

Fiance has been drooling over curved montiors for his XBOX. We have a huge 70 in that he plays on now but for the amount of time he spends engulfed in playing and as close as he gets to our very large TV, I think this is a better more ideal gaming experience, cutting his neck strain time in half. by allowing this monitor to be placed at eye level. I have had my on LG because I like the quality. My only fear is this is too small?

does response time have a big impact on gaming? I've got a 24" 1080p asus with 1ms response, this is 5ms... but using nvidia gpus so no *sync for me.

Yes, its too small. Xbox doesn't display 21:9 content on ultra wide monitor so there are black bars on the left and right side. That would be equivalent to the size of a 24 inch 16:9 monitor.

Best price on this CURVED MONITOR in a long time. I may finally bite- looks like this isn't happening at amazon any time soon. Frown

Anyone have any experience with returns or monitor issues with buydig? (Stuck or dead pixels, etc.)

Have this exact monitor. Bought a year ago for same price from buydig. It does have speakers. For those with Nvidia GPU, it CANNOT be over clocked to 75hz without frame skipping. Even at 61hz it skips (using gtx 1070) plays great at 60hz tho and games are amazing at 21:9. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend with the above caveats.

What are you smoking...?
I've seen numerous people OC these LG panels with nvidia GPU's
I myself am running a GTX 1080 and am OC'd to 80hz.
www.testufo.com also confirms that I am getting 80hz.

I play A LOT of high FPS games (Overwatch, Forza 7, pCars2, PUBG, etc) and I get little to no tearing whatsoever.

I have also had this panel for a little over a year. With that said, if I could do it all over again... I would save my monies and opt for at least a 34" panel that supports 3440x1440 resolution.
