Usually it's unfulfilled New Year's Resolutions breaking hearts, but fair point.

How much of a difference would the resolution of this one make compared to a 3440 x 1440? Would the fonts be much bigger?

On the contrary, higher resolution would result in smaller more clear fonts. Resolution quantifies how close lines can be to each other and still be visibly resolved.

Higher resolution allows you to potentially fit more on a screen.

With Windows native scaling at 100% the fonts on a 2560x1080, 34" monitor will definitely be larger than the fonts on a 3440x1440 34" monitor.

Personally, I have a Alienware 34" 3440x1440, and I've owned an Acer 35" 2560x1080 monitor. The most preferable font size to me with native scaling would be somewhere in the middle. I've owned quite a few high end displays and my favorite for native font size was the Dell 30", 3014 with 2560x1600.

Thus, I THINK, my subjective favorite widescreen display would be a 38" with 3880x1600, because that matches the same format as the Dell 3014, but is ultrawide scope format. Unfortunately, they don't make that 38" size in g-sync - so I won't be buying until they do.

You can see the Acer 35" at 2560x1080 compared to the Dell 30" at 2560x1600 compared to the 32" HP Omen 2560x1440 here to get some idea on pixel sizes at different monitor sizes and resolutions. I haven't made a video yet on the Alienware, but honestly - the pixel size is just a shade too small to match my preference -- it's a hair smaller than the 3014, but very significantly smaller than the 32" HP or the 35" Acer at 100% scaling.

You can jump to timestamp 19:58 to see how 2560x1080 looks on the desktop experience with my 35" Acer, which should be very similar to this 34" LG. (The 34" LG text would be every so slightly smaller since the monitor is 1" smaller overall)

I have an LG with the same size & res... For me its excellent. I sit with my face a good 3' from my monitor when gaming and can read the text fine. I also have a 25" LG ultrawide which would have text the same size as the 38" 1600p ultrawide that Archaea mentioned & at my normal distance its too small. Not unbearably so, but not at all comfortable (though the 38" ultrawide's are damn sexy and will be my next display with the 25" mounted centered above it for a second screen instead of the dell ultrasharp 17" in portrait I have now).

If you're willing to use a 27" 1080p monitor, this is basically the same in UW. Damn good price for this size.

I have the 2560x1080 version of Alienware 34" UW. It's fine for gaming but if I did a lot of productive work I'd avoid it. Doing the minimal amount of spreadsheet work (just personal budgeting) on it still annoys me.

Funny thing is, with the scaling windows 10 actually fits more icons on the 1080p monitor than the 17" QHD laptop screen with recommended scaling. I honestly think QHD is overkill on anything less than 24".

Hmmm, I've seen this one at Costco (just an hour ago), but didn't realize it was only 1080p until I noticed it's the same model as in this thread.. Looking to replace two 24" 1900x1200 monitors with a 34" wide. Mainly productivity (PowerPoint, Excel, & browser). Still stuck on Windows 7, so my font scaling is limited. Very nice price...hmmmm..

Why do they make 2560x1080 when they could just as easily make it 2560x1440?

It's so odd.

For productivity, go with a higher resolution at 3440x1440p?
