Depends on what you are used to using. I went from dual 24" to 34" and loved the monitor but regretted the loss of screen real estate and returned it. If you are used to a single, normal size monitor the 34 will be perfect.

I know this post is old, but just seeking feedback. I wanted 3840x 1200(or better) and not bigger than 38"

I saw this for $850 at microcenter but they had an open box with a Sept 2019 date on it for 10%off. Didn't think 10% off was worth it but was able to get it for 15% off ($722). I had the guy plug it in and take it out before I even considered it. No dead pixels that I noticed using simple black/white test.

The annoying thing about PBP is if one is display port and one is HDMI you'll notice differences in the white shades.

Otherwise it seems like an ideal monitor with lots of resolution and minimal head movement. I have a 42" now that is just way too tall and given me neck aches from looking up.

So is this a decent deal for an open box (probably on the floor for 2 months) at $722?

I have 15 days to return but hitting up microcenter is a good 2.5 hr round trip for me.

Like I previously said.. if you are used to dual 24" monitors you may not like the loss of screen real estate you will have with either a 34" or 38" ultrawide. If you are used to a single widescreen you'll love it.

How do you figure? Dual 24" would be 1920x1200 plus 1920x1200

That would be 3840x1200...this is 3840x1600 so ur actually gaining space, no?

Resolution does not equal screen size. Go to displaywars(.)com and compare the sizes if you need a visual representation.

you stated "loss of screen real estate" from having two 24"

im not sure WHERE you are losing REAL Estate... "screen real estate" equates to resolution in my opinion, b/c that's the actual space you have on the screen. What are you referring to?

Resolution refers to the image quality or sharpness, not screen size.

You bought the monitor, either you like it and it fits your needs or it doesn't which is what my original post was all about. It also was about my experience going from dual 24 to single 34, not the 38 you have.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

let's just clear something up here....resolution refers to the real estate of the screen.

a 24" monitor with a 1920x1080p resolution has LESS real estate than that same sized 24" monitor with a 1920x1200 resolution

You can have two identically physical sized monitors, but one can support a higher resolution than the other and thus two monitors of equivalent physical size can have different amounts of actual real estate based on the resolution.

resolution doesn't "really" refer to sharpness, though one mistakenly say a "higher resolution as being more sharp" it's not really "sharper" so much as it simply has more pixels which makes it technically denser which may give the appearance of "more sharpness" in colloquial terms, but it's really just more definition in the same area - hence the term "high definition"
