Ultrawide Monitors Thread (FAQ at page 1)

  • @cxiao12

    Based sa hardware unboxed reviews mas maganda ang xiaomi compared sa AOC na 34 inch. Bang for the buck talaga yung xiaomi. Kung ako papapiliin at same price range sila lahat. Sa Gigabyte GW34QC ako. Pero dahil malalayo price range nila. Xiaomi talaga
  • Hello, saan may available na G9 at magkano? Thanks!
  • Asking for recommendations/suggestions on what single arm monitor mount is good for a 49" 31.1lb curved monitor. Preferably sana yung available locally. TIA. :)


    @theDUD3: I got my Odyssey G9 from PlayBook Store. It's on a per order basis. Price is P71,100. They asked for 10% dp/partial payment. Placed the order on the 22nd of Dec, it arrived 9th Jan but they'd tell you it usually takes 6-8 weeks. :)
  • @rhyder

    Got one from gilmore for 73k cash, not for me though but for a client. I almost cried when I had to deliver it to hi. Hahaha!
  • ^ ah. I thought it was for you, can imagine how hard it was to let go. haha I got mine from playbookstore solenad 3, dyan sa sta. rosa. :D
  • @rhyder

    It will be hard to find locally for that weight. The North Bayou F100A is only 26.4, the Amazon basics is a little less. Ergotron MX is only 30lbs

    The Humanscale M10 can do 40 lbs and is available locally but it costs as much as a nice monitor

    If you can drill holes on your wall, a North Bayou F450 is the best option (also the least expensive)

    Basically Im researching for myself when I buy a Samsung G9 for a racing rig haha

    How's the G9? Dami ko kasi nababasa issues sa mga forums.

    Yeah the 1st batch was recalled but the issues were fixed then, no problems encountered whatsoever during the 1 1/2 days I played around with it. Movies, games, HDR etc. was awesome and freakin' immersive on the G9 although I wish I had a 30 series vidcard to push my gaming tests. Excel opens a new worksheets with columns up to CA. hahaha!

    What!? Why did I not know this, I'm from Sta. Rosa. Hahaha!
  • @thedude

    Thanks sa info. Still thinking. Major upgrade din kasi. Gaming at photoediting ko gamitin. Pero panalo nga yan. Goes well sa theme ko na white build.
  • @viper500

    It does seem like it's hard to find one locally that's not too expensive. The one I'm considering is the Loctek D7L which supports 10-34" monitors only pero 13.2-33lbs ang supported weight. It's P5380 in banggood, free shipping. I don't know if this can hold a 49" curved monitor so I'm still looking around for more info but at least, in terms of weight, kaya nya. I also don't know if it is available locally but from the looks of it, none.

    I don't really like drilling holes in my wall, so although the price of the NBF450 is the most appealing, last resort na siguro, pag talagang wala na makuhang iba. haha! Thanks for the suggestions! Goodluck sa racing rig! :)


    @ianisthename

    I haven't taken it out for a spin yet. lol Just took it out of the box, assembled it and checked if it's working. I haven't really set it up yet as I'm still looking for a mounting bracket/arm. Also, I'm still running on a gtx 1080 hahaha! I'm due for an upgrade anyway, need a 3080 soon so I can see and feel its full potential. Hopefully, walang issues... sana. :D

    Btw, I'm also rockin' a white theme here. It's so hard to find an rtx 3080 white gpu. I'm waiting for the galax 3080 hof but so far no news on when it'll be released. Haayyy...


    @theDUD3

    I don't know! hahaha I did see in your profile you're from sta. rosa so I was wondering why you were asking around about a g9. It's right there in your area. hahaha! Well, they didn't have it on display kasi nga it's on a per order basis. I only found out because I inquired. You should visit them one of these days baka may client ulit kayo who wants a g9. hehe
  • @rhyder

    I see. Well let us know your experience pag nasetup mo na. Nice, whit build din. Ako, just got a 3080 Vision last saturday. Nakaswerte.

    24" 1080p monitor ako ngayon so super upgrade in case makadecide.

    Yes I agree, bang for the buck yung Xiaomi Mi Surface talaga.
  • @ ianisthename

    Yeah, will do.

    Congrats on the 3080 vision! Ready ka na to go 1440p. I'm sure hindi man lang pinapawisan yan 3080 mo sa current monitor mo. haha! Yan ang magandang upgrade, laki ng jump, you'll really feel the improvement. Upgrade na to a G9! :D
  • Nagaalangan ako sa loop alloy na tig 890, may ibang reviews na nag ssag yung kanila(not sure kung di lang talaga nila hinigpitan/thin table/lemon unit). Meron pa ba tayong alternatives for 1.5k below? Xiaomi Surface user here.
  • ^

    ako naka loop alloy at thick table, stable naman yung surface mi na monitor ko hanggang ngayon. solid naman.
  • Ano kaya ang mas maganda para sa sim racing?

    Super Ultrawide Monitor



    VR HMD

    Would you really risk your 20k-monitor to save 1k though?

    exactly my point good sir. do you have any suggestions/alternatives?
  • @rhyder

    Thanks sir! Esep2 muna sa G9. Hahaha.
  • @mrbungle

    Syempre yung second pic na dahil walang istorbo. Pag lumingon ka ba sa right as in lilingon din yung background?
  • @gyrd
    nabasa ko mas maganda daw yung North Bayou ba yun yung NB... basta wag yung gas type... NB 1200 ata yun napanuod ko sa YT na ginamit
  • @vladz17

    Super ultrawide na G9 gusto ko nung una pero naisip ko din, mas "space-saving" yung VR.

    Pag lumingon ka ba sa right as in lilingon din yung background?


    May head-tracking tech yung VR so pag lumingon ka for example sa sides, up or down, lilingon din yung POV ng 1st person view sa game.

    Meron North Bayou F100A for 2.5k or H100 for 2K both can handle up to 12kgs
    or the cheaper Loop Alloy for 1.5k that can handle 9kgs

    I was able to buy a F100A for 2.3k (including shipping) nung L*Z*A sale.
  • @MrBungle

    Some people like VR, some hate it. Personally I tried it and my eyes very itchy in 10 minutes. You can go to one of those VR places to try it out but its probably not safe now. Also its much cheaper as a Quest 2 is 24K and a Samsung G9 is 70K+.

    Im going for an ultrawide though

    This is my setup peg, I only have a U3415W now though, which is great for work since its color accurate and ok for games. I cant afford two monitors so I want a convertible setup <click here for link>

    I was seriously considering the Samsung Odyssey G9 for the expanded FOV but I really have no space for it. Actually, my biggest concern with VR is motion sickness.

    Been using my Oculus Rift S Since 2019 after switching from a 34 inch Ultrawide to a 43 inch 4K Monitor, I don't miss Ultrawide with my current setup. Also I don't have any problem with motion sickness but my other relatives got 'Nauseated' when they tried VR.

    So Motion Sickness on VR for me is a hit or miss depending on the person.
  • @MrBungle

    If you have no space for it then a VR and a Playseat Challenge is the best setup

    Imo you can gamble with an Oculus Quest 2, if you dont like it then sell it.

    The yellow colored gaming store with lots of branches has a 64gb for 23995, then buy a long usb-c cable

    People in the iRacing forum say they get initally get nauseated from VR but eventually over time its fine, though it varies. Also racing is more nauseating as its fast....... or just drive MX-5s lol
  • @Odellot

    I'm hoping I can get used to it. FWIW, I generally don't get motion sickness with fast paced FPS games.

    @viper500

    I already have a Playseat Challenge so VR is the next piece of the sim racing puzzle for me. I placed an order for the HP Reverb G2 but it's on backorder right now. I'm expecting it to take months before it gets shipped out but I'm in no rush at the moment.

    The Reverb G2 will need quite a bit of GPU muscle though since the display panels are 2160 x 2160 per eye @ 90Hz. The higher the frame rate, the more fluid the VR motion will be with lesser latency. That should make it less likely for VR to be a nauseating experience.

    On topic: If I went with the Samsung Odyssey G9 super ultrawide route, I would have had to upgrade the GPU as well, I guess.
