    Anyone got one? and if so what do you think about it?

    Microcenter has a 34" one for $300 (and 5 star ratings) that I've thinking about getting.

    looks pretty sweet to me.
    If I wasn't so happy with what I have now I would buy one.

    I’ve been tempted to go to the curved side before but idk, they usually don’t have great refresh rates (or didn’t last time I was in the market) so wouldn’t want one for gaming and I’m not sure I’d want the curve for work (idk, I feel like it puts too much into your peripheral vision but maybe the curvature isn’t that extreme?). Never wanted to gamble several hundred bucks on it I guess

    Back in my day that size would have made you king of the hill.
    For anything.
    You younger people have no idea how much money was spent on things before we got old.
    When my wife first got into website design we spent sssso much money on equipment but it all worked out.

    144hz is a pretty damn good refresh rate, especially at that price

    Here it is, it's pretty tasty and a great price.



    It's nice to have 2 browsers open side by side too, like having 2 monitor setup really.

    yeah the mouse



    I liked the original but the build was really flimsy, know they made a remake of it but haven't really checked it out

    yours looked like it had buttons all over the side but they're different when you zoom in

    Yeah it's got like 3 buttons on the side, I don't like side buttons as I'm always unintentionally hitting them so I don't use/program them.
