    Re: iiyama ProLite XUB3493WQSU

    Pros:
    34"
    1440p
    £350
    Iiyama
    100mm VESA
    G-Sync compatible

    Cons:
    IPS panel
    FreeSync
    Backlight bleed

    Meh:
    Ultrawide
    75Hz

    Sounds pretty decent and a good entry-level ultrawide for non-fussy budget-conscious gamers.

    Why is IPS and freesync a con?

    Personal preferences.

    IPS - I'm really not a fan of backlight bleed at the minute, as a lot of what I'm watching and playing has great big black bits, where the bleed really shows...
    Freesync - Doesn't have Low Framerate Compensation and can sometimes misbehave over HDMI. I'm using Nvidia anyway, so perhaps a moot point.

    Mostly just some weighing up elements to qualify my opinion.

    If it wasn't Freesync, then it would be old school fixed sync, and that has to be worse doesn't it? I mean, you aren't going to get actual G sync on a monitor like this, only on one way more expensive.
