    @Danny12345678912 I had the same problem.

    HP Elitebook 840 G4 -> 2560x1440 as a maximum resolution in Windows when HDMI is used from laptop.

    The problem is that HP Elitebook 840 G4 has HDMI 1.4 which has bandwidth not enough even to do 3440x1440 with 60 Hz.

    Quick and dirty fix for Windows -> create custom resolution 3440x1440 56 Hz ( this tool is nice for Windows https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU )

    Going to buy Thunderbolt (USB-C) -> DisplayPort cable and and try it out, it supposed to have 20 Gbit/s throughput.

    And yeah, regarding 4k you have been able to do before - it was definitely not 4:4:4 60 Hz. [​IMG]

    Bought the monitor via Amazon.de (it was the cheapest option for Sweden). 1 dead pixel and 2-3 subtle dark spots (not sharp as dead pixel, might be some dust or whatever). Overall, satisfied with it.

    i just went and picked this up

    after the reviews on bad panels it put me off but i went for it anyway. i might have just got lucky zero dead pixels and backlight bleed is non existent

    so far its amazing, only let down is the pointless hdr mode it doesnt work in the slightest. ive always stuck with tn 144/240hz im a cs nutjob, ghosting is there but you have to really look for it. i was expecting it to be terrible coming from a 240 tn but i would have no problem playing some proper competitive games on it for sure

    games look amazing on it, movies was a big surprise, speakers are good for the price

    all in all 100% worth the money, i would say its a steal at the price that it is and will tie me over until 4k 144 becomes more mainstream

    any questions let me know

    The monitor is fantastic when its working... Had 2 my self before giving up and choosing something else. I hope your monitor continues to be without issues cause it's great when it works.

    The only issue I have found in the firmware with mine is the auto input select just doesn’t work. Manual only it seems!

    I was part of the first wave to get my hands on them from retailers here in Denmark... Perhaps quality has gone up since. One can hope :).

    Really undecided between this and the GB3466WQSU (with the curve), I know it's completely personal preference but any suggestions? I'm currently running a 144hz 24" 1080p monitor - so would be a big jump in size. :D

    Isn't that a VS pannel? There will be more to it than the curve, VA and IPS also have their own trade offs.

    I’ve been trying to make the decision too, but some people’s opinions about the TN black smearing has really got me leaning towards this IPS variant

    I'm between this IPS flat model and the VA curved one and can't decide which to buy...
    My last monitor was HP Elite 27q (1440p, IPS, 60Hz).

    Please help!

    Not just OLED,but even Samsung's QLED TVs (which are LCD LED) have ZERO light bleed,I don't know how they do it,but really unacceptable if a monitor has this much light bleed.

    Is anyone able to comment on the input lag? The chap from Tech team GB who reviewed this monitor stated it has the highest input lag he's experienced so far and that it had a noticeable impact on his gaming experience. I've been using my GB3461WQSU for a couple of months now but haven't been able to game on it yet so I can't comment on the gaming experience or input lag.

    I love the fact that the GB3461WQSU has a flat panel. At this size (34"), a flat panel works perfectly. If however you are used to having curved panels or you absolutely require a curve, then I'm sure the flatness of the panel will be very weird. But you're upgrading from a flat 27" panel so I'm sure you will enjoy a flat 34" IPS experience.

    No issues with input lag here.

    Can’t say i have noticed anything but I was using a slower ‘5ms’ 60hz screen and I certainly haven’t measured it.

    I've been looking for an ultrawide and this one seems to tick the boxes. Currently got a Dell S2716DG and a 1080ti so would this be a good upgrade from that monitor and would gaming be okay with the 1080ti at the monitors resolution? I'll be getting a 3080 when they become more readily available.
