Ultrawide or Hz?

Recommended Posts

I like hertz.

At least 280Hz FullHD or 60Hz 1440p there is no question. FullHD is not as bad as the era of 480p.

Also I'd go for Hz instead of ultra-wide, though not really a gamer.


... but I'm no expert

Hz

UW makes games look funny, and i dont like straining my neck by constantly having to look towards left side because not all UI, no matter games or websites, are well designed for non 16:9

 

if i want immersion, probably get VR

 

for multitasking, 2 separate screen is better

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I used to have a UW but at the time, the majority of games I played (wasn't many at the time) did not support UW aspect ratios and stretched the video out (Fallout 4 vanilla, BO3 WoT). It was cool to have at the time but decided to go back to a regular 16:9 monitor and finally after a couple years, upgraded to the appropriate one. 

 

Otherwise, for me, I would rather go with hertz over UW, it's all subjective.

Personally I don't care too much for either.

In a perfect world, I would get a 16:10 or maybe even a bit taller high resolution display, with good color accuracy.

If it's a higher Hz: cool. Most I do on my PC doesn't need a higher refresh rate and extra width doesn't do me much good in most applications I use.
