As the title says, I'm planning to add a third monitor to the two 1080p60 monitors I already have.

I am basically looking to upgrade in all dimensions and go to 1440p ultrawide and above 100hz refresh rate.

 

After seeing the recent LTT video on repairing a monitor, I went on ebay to look around, but as there are very few broken monitors on offer here in Germany, I also started looking for working monitors.

 

I am currently looking at these three monitors. The Acer Z35P is the one I found on ebay and may be able to get for 600€ (as opposed to ~770€ new). The Samsung and the Philips I can get from Mindfactory for 510€ and 545€.

 

I guess now I'm asking if anyone has experience with any of these monitors (or other monitors that meet my aforementioned criteria).

I have noticed that while on displayspecifications.com all three monitors are listed to have 100hz maximum refresh rate, on Mindfactory the Z35P has 120hz listed.

Are you going to push it with the GPU in your profile?  Or upgrading soon?

 

Luna's monitor looks good, I don't have experience with it. I do know you'll be hard pressed to push a 120Hz 1440p UW currently, so don't worry about 100 vs 120 at this point in time. 

 

They all are more for the immersive experience than high FPS shoot'em up gaming.

I personally have the Acer X34 which is at 100hz. It's a really nice IPS panel that's mostly geared towards gaming, but pretty good for professional use too.

Oh yeah, I have upgraded my PC twice since I last updated my profile. I'm currently running a RTX 2080 and an 8700K, so I think I'm fine there.

 

Sadly the monitor Luna linked doesn't ship to germany, and most other viotek monitors seem to ship from the same vendor, who also doesn't ship to germany.

 

Interestingly on ebay, the official viotek store seems to ship to Germany, and there I found an open box deal, that for $360 base, even after $50 shipping and $100 import tax, converts to about 450€, which is 60€ cheaper than the Samsung from my original search.

And the best part is that Viotek is using a Samsung panel inside so you are getting about the same experience as the Samsung branded one, cheers!
