I'm planning on upgrading my monitor but a few people I've discussed this particular monitor with seem to have mixed opinions on it.  One comment in particular was the 1ms response time maybe software driven.  Another was if I'm lucky this may use a samsung display unit.  I'm confused whether or not I'm buying something worth the money or not now.

for the price, It seems decent, but for a couple more euros you could probably go with an ultrawide from ROG, Acer, or LG

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

It looks like a pretty decent monitor specs wise, but monitor manufactures specs are complete BS 90% of the time. I would recommend saving up for an LG ultra wide on sale, unless you can find a decent review of this one online.

Buy from reputable known brands like ROG, Samsung, Dell, etc unless you have some good evidence that this off brand monitor is worth it (like a reputable review from a trusted source like LTT or something).

Like stated above, UW's are iffy from random manufacturers, especially when they're promising these specs at that price. I second waiting for a quality LG, AW, Samsung, Asus, etc to go on sale.
