Xiaomi have always been my choice when it comes to quality and affordability. I started using Xiaomi when they first launched their Redmi mobile devices. They started out with just selling mobile phones and over the years, they have launched a whole range of products.
A few months ago when i was planning to upgrade my Acer KG271 monitor to a bigger and a curved monitor was almost put on hold. Simply because the price for such specs was a bit over my budget.
Thankfully i came across the Xiaomi Curve 34 Inch Gaming Monitor! I bought online via Shopee with some discount vouchers and got it for only $459! Now for that price, it is definitely worth it for the specs you are getting. For those who are interested, i would recommend to wait for some sale or when there is a discount as the original price is $699.
Here are the technical specifications for the geeks:
Resolution: 3440 × 1440
Screen curvature: 1500R
Response time: 4 ms (Gray scale response time)
Colors: 16.7 million (8-bit)
Brightness: 300 cd/m²
Refresh rate: 144 Hz
Color gamut: 85% NTSC (NTSC CIE 1931 Standard)
Contrast ratio: 3000:1 (TYP)
Number and Type of Ports
HDMI 2.0 x 2
DP1.4 port x 2
AUDIO port x 1
AC power cable IN port x 1
Xiaomi provides a 3-year local warranty so you can have a peace of mind. I have been using it everyday for the past one year and never had any issues with it. For those who are not used to using a 34 curved monitor, it looks and feel weird at first but after some time, you’ll get used to it.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a widescreen with a budget below $500.
