No reviews anywhere. Save your money for when it's cheaper than MSRP or there are reliable reviews out there.

appears to have a samsung panel according to the Q&A. Not sure exactly what that means but seems like a good sign.

agreed - no reviews yet. They have been gaining reputation as decent option for monitors and from my experience, a fair vendor. The specs/cost definitely warrant attention. All depends on your risk tolerance.

Seems like a fair price considering monitors like this at 144Hz cost $700+, but unlike those this panel has VA—not IPS.

Has all the specs I want and at a great price point. If it had USB 2.0 C I'd pull the trigger.

"Usb 2.0 C", why such a specific unusual requirement?

Response time on this is VA panel is 4ms, IPS has better viewing angles. This is also HDR400 so... Pretty much means nothing but marketing. At this price it's great, if you play a bunch of FPS games find something else unless you don't care for the 4ms response time. 144/240hz 1ms 1080p is still king. Well until ampere gpu's come out then 1440p 144hz 1ms monitors should start getting cheaper. The more expensive monitors have low response time,high refresh rate and IPS panel and nice inputs on the back. oh also better colors. worth it? depends on your wallet. if your graphics card can't drive such a monitor then there's no point getting it.

i have a 35" UW from monoprice (its the same panel in the 35" Asus)

overall i have no complaints. overclock it to 120hz and its run fine. i think i paid like $375 for it.

i refuse to drop 1k on a monitor so if you want a UW / High refresh rate experience and not have to pay insane prices this is it once it goes down on sale

I'd like to see a blind study where you can tell 4ms from 1ms. Maybe a pro gamer can... maybe. You're also wrong about colors. The Samsung Quantum Dot VA panels have 125% sRGB, most IPS are around 95-99%. You also get much better contrast with this so dark scenes actually have things visible, instead of dark areas where you see nothing like most IPS. This monitor definitely wins in picture quality except for viewing angles, but if you are moving your head a lot then a curved ultrawide probably isn't for you since the curvature won't line up well with your head to the side.

Google shows nothing for "Samsung LSM340Y P05" except back to the Monoprice listing page for this monitor.

This is supposedly the panel it is using.

This seems like it'd be good for general office/productivity use, no? Marketed as "gaming" but nice price for good specs for that use case??
