I bought the 35in Zero-G back in October 2020. Last month in April the screen started "whiting out" periodically - maybe from overheating, idk. Point is, I raised the issue with Monoprice and they acknowledged this was a new issue and sent me a pre-paid shipping label to return it. I sent it back and got a new one about a week and half later. So far so good.

Personally, I had a good experience with their return process. I also recommend keeping the original box for a bit, returning this thing in a lawnmower box wrapped in bubble wrap was not ideal Smilie

Edit: also available at Target for $299.99 + 5% off with RedCard, effectively reducing the price to $284.99 before tax.

if it's just for office-type use, then the biggest factors that i can think of is the curvature and height adjustment. the 1800R on the zero-G is less curved than dark matter (bigger number = less curved). zero-g does not appear to have height adjustability, whereas the dark matter does.

deeper curve is better for gaming where you sit fairly close to your monitor. it'll give you better immersion as the curvature better matches your natural peripheral view. i'd imagine that for office use, you wouldn't want as aggressive of a curve.
Pretty much the pros for the Dark Matter are the HDR, higher refresh rate and most importantly the stand (height adjustable).

The Zero G is cost. I have the Zero G and not a single regret. It's been rock solid and has a great picture. I put mine on a nice full articulating arm mount to fit in my desk. I prefer that to the stand, but it did cost a little extra to find a proper one for the desk and monitor.

For productivity, either will do great. You won't need the HDR or refresh rates of the Dark Matter. However, you might not like the stand on the Zero G.

Best new price so far on the Dark Matter! Wish Target would take up the 331 price, I would probably go for that. No Monoprice near me for returns or anything.

I just noticed that the 35 Zero-G has
1x HDMI 2.0, 2x HDMI 1.4, 1x DisplayPort 1.2

while the 34 Dark Matter has:
2 x HDMI 2.0, and 2 x DisplayPort 1.4

so the 35 has less modern connectivity options than the Dark Matter.
DP 1.4 supports more bandwidth. (e.g. DP1.4 allows for both 10Bit and HDR on high refresh rates, while 1.2/1.2a does not support HDR on high refresh rates) Personally I hope they will release monitors with USB-C, as that's what I'd prefer to have, input wise.

I'm not looking at the 35" at this point, more looking to compare the 32" curved Zero-G. 5 bucks more for 165hz, curved, and 32" vs 27". Only for gaming. I'm not really sold on 32" at QHD over the 27" for gaming, or VA vs IPS for that matter, but it's hard to pass up "more" monitor for the same money.

Technically you can get it last BF @$315 with 10% new user coupon from Newegg, but that's not as straight forward as this and you will need to deal with NE although from what I read Monoprice's customer service isn't any better.. agree it would be great to have Target matching the price.
