Interesting, but no LFC kind of kills it for me. Would have been interested if it covered a greater range with FreeSync.

Maybe we'll see a price drop of Vega 56 when the 1070Ti launches to make it a little more enticing.

Massdrop's shipping to the UK, plus any import fees/VAT means this is priced well outside of competing monitors with more features/better panels here in the UK. It's a nice deal if you're American, but even Canada has to pay $150 shipping. It's just not worth it.

You couldn't have like ya know demo'd free-sync on it?

Hooked it up to Vega, ran a AAA game at native rez/medium settings? Then cranked it up to the aboslute max to see if it drops below the minimum refresh for free-sync and what that looks like?

 

Honestly how long would that have taken?

Isn't showing off it's gaming capabilities in that way integral to a review of a gaming display?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Massdrop set out to make the best gaming monitor they could at the lowest price...but what did they have to sacrifice to do it?
 

 

I need this now, must've missed it but what's the cheapest you can get it?

+ $150 shipping + whatever VAT and fees your govt charges outside of the US.

 

eg UK: 550 + 150 = $700 + 20% = $840 (£662.31 via paypal) + whatever fees/duties extra.

 

Which is right in the arena of Acer Predator 144hz and LG 1440p Ultrawides

Yeah maybe it's different if you live in the US but I've never seen a deal on massdrop that made sense

A cool setup that could be done with this monitor, or at least a few xD, would be a flight simulator setup. With 35" inches of diagonal screen real estate, a few of these side-by-side tilted 90 degrees would be really cool, as you could see downwards and upwards a bit farther, therefore simulating a cockpit better.

Is an 25'' ultrawide monitor worth it instead of an 23'' widescreen?

You'd be losing some height for very little width. The screen would probably be smaller overall.

Would anyone say that this would be a good monitor for productivity and movie use?

Depends on the workload, but most likely not really unless you don't want bezels, 2-3 decent 1080p IPS displays will only run you about $100 each.

Ultrawides in general are great for productivity, but some do argue, like Dmitri from Hardware Canucks, that curved ultrawides are not his favorite when editing in Premiere. You do get more real estate when using dual monitors and you can usually get bundles on sale, but you have the bevels in the way which some people don't like. 

 

Movie viewing on the other hand, depends on the movie. Some fit the ultrawide perfectly if it's 21:9, but some will have black bars on the side if they are in a format like 16:9.

Guys, if you're considering on buying this from Massdrop, consider these options:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAB715ZF6207

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6BM63P7359

 

It's $50 more, BUT at least it will be at your doorstep by next week instead of 2018, when prices will probably have already dropped. Also, it's missing an inch, big whoop right?

 

What do you guys think of these alternatives?

I recognized calman. I missed that SpectraCal was bought. I was shocked that you may not have done it in house. Awesome to see you do!

Has anyone seen this site? Seems too good to be true. But why go through this effort if i can just dispute it on my card and get my money back if i find out it's just a scam anyway.

Mildly worried about getting scammed.

This was the thread for this monitor, and I thought that it would be a good place to get some feedback on whether or not the monitor seemed legit and if the website itself seemed too shady or not.
