  • ^Why not go for Mi, costs 19-21k for basically the same specs?
  • same here, will just get the mi surface 34 inch monitor then with the extra budget will buy a NB F100a
  • Isn't the Mi only 4ms? And has a lower contrast ratio too.
  • Mga idol sino naka Huawei MateView Gt dito? gusto ko lang malaman yung distance nung stand sa likod papunta sa speaker sa harap? ilang CM or IN sya? para lang masukat ko kung kasya sa patungan ko... Pag kasya kasi palitan ko tong Mi surface ko eh.
  • I end up with Mi Surface 34. Unbeatable yung price last 9.9 Lazada sale dahil sa mga vouchers. At 17700, including shipping, definitely a steal.
  • matagal ko na minamata yung xiaomi na 34, pag full screen ba ng movies or kahit sa youtube may black bars?

    hassle pa walang display port mga laptop ko kaya hindi ko ma-utilize yung max refresh rate nya. Currently using an asus vp249.

    usually, ginagamitan ko ng ultrawidify na chrome extension. pero hindi lahat ng videos sa youtube supported ng extension. depende pa rin.
  • ^pero pano sa mga apps tulad ng vlc? sagad pa rin ba pag full screen sa UWA?
  • ^depende sa format ng movie sir
  • pupunta ka lang naman sa aspect ratio or crop then choose 2.35:1 which is the 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio.
  • Hi guys,

    Bought the x34 gs 2 months ago and I'm very happy with the purchase. No dead pixels and other problems except backlight bleed on the corners which I'll assume are just normal for IPS.

    The problem is the length of the monitor takes up too much space lengthwise, I need to move it back at least 1.5-2 inches back for a better viewing experience.

    So I have 2 options. Get a new table. My current table is good enough but I think it needs at least 2 inches length.

    The best option is getting a monitor arm to support the 34 inch ultrawide. I want the arm to be white because I have this all white setup.

    NB H100A - Available on Lazada and Shopee. There's a new model but only the black color is available here in PH. Not a big fan of the base and the stickers.


    FlexiSpot MA8 Single Gas Spring Monitor Mount Monitor Stand – Around 4,000. More expensive than North Bayou but I like the white color. I just don't like the logo because it can be seen on the sides.

    What other options are available? Hopefully below 6k.
  • matagal ko na minamata yung xiaomi na 34, pag full screen ba ng movies or kahit sa youtube may black bars?

    kung 21:9 yung movie na meron ka.. full screen siya without black bars.. tama sile, depende sa aspect ratio video/movie... etong copy ko ng free guy 21:9 talaga sya..


  • Kaka return ko lang ng Mi Surface 34 sa seller. After 3 weeks, may nag appear na 2-3 vertical lines sa right side ng screen nya. I thought sa gpu, pero sinubukan ko sa ibang pc, same issue. Ginamitan ko rin ng bagong dp at hdmi cable. Lemon yata napunta sa akin.

    try mo get a console table




  • Has anybody been able to test the ViewSonic VX3418-2KPC?

    • 34" MVA Panel
    • HDMI | DisplayPort
    • 3440 x 1440 WQHD Resolution
    • 4000:1 Static Contrast Ratio
    • 300 cd/m² Brightness
    • 178°/178° Viewing Angles
    • 1 ms Response Time
    • 16.7 Million Colors
    • Dual 5-Watt Speakers
    • 1500R Curvature
  • Saw this monitor online for just under 20k (I heard some computer shops sell this for even lower):






    Specs and looks seem to be exactly the same as what Hardware Unboxed just recently listed as one of its best value ultrawides: the Nixeus EDG 34<click here for link>:

    https://youtu.be/vVqfuvUGPZU


    It seems the Mi Curved Gaming Monitor 34", the above Avision/Nixeus, and another good ultrawide, the AOC CU34G2X (now rarely found in stores), all use the same Samsung panel. I have a feeling the Viewsonic monitor I pasted above this post and a few more 144Hz 34" 1440p monitors on the market, will probably have the same panel too.

    If this Avision 34G9C is indeed the exact same monitor reviewed by Hardware Unboxed (but under a different brand), then this could well be the best bang-for-the-buck ultrawide available in the Philippines at the moment.

  • gagana po ba yun 3200g integrated gpu ko sa mi 34? meron ako displayport 1.2 sa motherboard gagamitin ko lang sya for productivity and watching movies and im not into games.. tinatarget ko din yun mateview gt kaso 9k yun price difference nila ng xiaomi 34
  • Mga bossing, may nakaexperience na ba sa inyo gumamit ng 4k TV, 43 inches as a primary workstation monitor?

    Xiaomi ang brand, second hand and binebenta sa akin ng mura.

    I did a bit of a computation sa PPI, and nasa 102 PPI ung nakuha ko, which is even higher PPI than my current setup of 1080p on a 27 inches monitor at 81 PPI lang.

  • ^ I had a 43" Philips 4k IPS monitor and imho tamang-tama size nya for 4k display. Very crisp pa rin fonts and di mo kailangan mag squint para mabasa.

    ako naka xiaomi 34 and I can say common talaga sa VA panels (and OLED i believe) .... sabi nila IPS does a better job with it
  • Post deleted #12395848
  • @DonBerna

    Saan po 17k lang yung Mi 34"?
  • @all

    Just wanted to ask kung sino po ang local distributor ng SpecterPro?


    TiA! ^^V
  • My old 29" LG ultrawide from 2016 (model UM58) went kaput recently and I needed a newer one to replace it. I didn't want to go the IPS route as I would get headaches after extended work sessions on my old LG, so I thought a VA panel would be better since I worked mostly in the dark, anyway.

    My choices are what I mentioned on earlier posts above this one. ;-)

    After a couple of weeks of looking around for something which fit my budget (25k max but 20k would be better). I was able to get a good deal from Lazada using a couple of vouchers and a 1k discount courtesy of my debit card.

    I got the Mi Curved Gaming Monitor 34" for a little over 19k. :-)

    The ones which I really considered where the Lenovo G34 (23k in Datablitz) and the Avision 34G9C (19.5k in Shopee but there is a 2k discount voucher available now).

    What ultimately swayed me to the Mi was the really good build quality, clever cable management, and the contrast levels.
