MSI MAG341CQP 34" OLED Ultra Widescreen Monitor- $799

So is actually this worth getting now? It's a 1st gen panel but its only $799. I only care about playing games and watching movies on it. No work or productivity so not really care about the color fringing/text clarity with the pixel layout. They apparently have new firmware to address the OLED care issues too and giving 3 year burn in warranty as well.

    I wouldn't buy something that burns in after 3 years. I've had my monitor for 5 years and paid the same. I wouldn't have bought if it wasn't going to last

          Problem is you morons use these exact tests to b***h about OLED burn-in, when in reality, you're not going to get noticeable burn-in for years unless you use the display irresponsibly.

            It only decays if you're running it at full blast forever. OLEDs are inherently flawed with a burn in problem that leds don't have

            regular people have issues with burn in. If your display needs software to desperatly mititgate some issue then it's a meme. I really don't care that you spent $2k on some meme display and now you're angry on the internet trying to convince yourself that there won't be a problem in the future. Enjoy your burn in

            If you're poor then option 2 is much better, if you're not then option 1 is not only better but by the time you get a new monitor the new OLED models will have such good burn-in mitigation that they'll last even longer. There's a reason people buy them even though they're aware of burn-in, they're just that superior. People who buy them for productivity are fricking up, though.

          this isn't thousands of dollars. $800 for an OLED gaming monitor. The 2 year old Dell one is now $779. But this MSI one is using same panel but with HDMI 2.1 and OLED care 2.0. Seems like a better buy.

      OLED screens have a different standard now which makes sense since they have basically infinite contrast.

      DisplayHDR True Black for OLED vs DisplayHDR for non-OLED

      The DisplayHDR True Black 400 is equivalent DisplayHDR 1000.

      And this monitor is actually capable 1000 nits at 2% window in HDR if you change the mode in the OSD. Actually all the current OLED ones from 2022 and on are apparently. And the new 2024 LG ones do 1300 nits due to using the MLA+ tech.

          if you use them with moronic high brightness in a desktop enviroment you will get burn in.
          dont know why this is so hard for people to understand, the harder you push a display the quicker it will die.
          This is true for any self emitting display, crt plasma oled and whatever else might exist.
          the candle that burns twice as bright burns out the quickest.

            It has to do with brightness range for HDR content for things like specular reflection and so on

            UI in games and programs is very often white over black.
            so it really doesnt matter if its 1000 nits fullscreen or not.
            cap your oled to 100 nits and it will last longer

            running high brightness on an oled is what gets you burn in.
            even if peak 1000 nits rarely get reached.
            higher nits= more burn and no amount of coping will change that

    OP you might want to wait just a little bit, at the end of the month MSI is releasing the upgraded version of that ultrawide with 240hz and the newest generation of QD-OLED. It'll be more expensive though but anyone buying these kinds of monitors isn't a poorgay to begin with.

      Yeah, that's the rub. But they will probably be starting at $1100-1200 range and probably be in short supply too. That's like 40% price premium. My original budget was only $800. Was gonna pick up a 27" 2K normal OLED but saw this one for just $799.

    My XG2431 died and it's on for warranty. Been using a friends 27" IPS from 2016. Response times are dogshit but whatever, the bigger problem is that 27" is far too big and everything is far too sharp (though TAA can't be disabled in nu-games).
    I've found myself playing at 1080p with NVIDIA sharpening.
