    Tell ya what... if the RGB thing along the bottom is also the buttons to control the monitor, then I'd quite happily have this... It reminds me of the Enterprise viewscreen in Star Trek:TNG, with the running lights along the bottom edge!

    Doesn't the Samsung G9 Neo own this on everything except vertical resolution.
    And probably price?

    A non UW has caught my attention in this MEG range.

    For me 34" is the sweet spot on UW. 38" Would be too big, but good to see more options.

    This checks all the boxes. If I could afford to upgrade to a high-end NVIDIA graphics card to pair with it, I'd be sold.

    "38” Would be too big" - Have you used a 38" monitor? It's awesome. At that size and resolution, there's also no need for Windows display scaling, which can be flaky with some apps. Price notwithstanding, these are the sweet spot for monitor size and resolution.
