The ultra-wide 21:9 ratio and the curved screen are the perfect combination for a large screen monitor. Gamers have been reluctant to use this combination because the reality is that even if a curved screen is applied on a small 20-inch screen, it only increases a sense of heterogeneity compared to the original purpose of increasing immersion.
Therefore, there are many cases where a curved structure is adopted for 30-inch monitors, especially ultra-wide monitors, and a monitor that will delight the eyes of gamers at a reasonable price has been released from a few combinations.
BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400 is a curved design of 144Hz nano IPS panel with 34-inch ultra-wide PAM resolution.
■ The most effective curved combination
As mentioned earlier, curved monitors require a large screen. The left and right sides of the 16:9 monitor are wider than normal monitors, and you have to look at the wide area to fully feel the immersion that the curved surface brings.
Therefore, the combination of curved and ultra-wide prefers the 30-inch range, and among them, the 34-inch model has been evaluated as the most ideal combination.
BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400, introduced today, is also a product tailored to that condition.
It’s a 34-inch curved monitor with an ultra-wide 21:9 ratio and a nano IPS panel that operates at 144Hz.
It is surprising that this combination, provided only by leading brands such as LG Electronics and DELL Alienware, has been reproduced in BitM, but at the same time, it is surprising that the price has been reduced by at least 30 % and up to 50% to be loyal to the cost-effectiveness brand value Could not help but
Of course, it cannot be denied that there is a difference in refresh rate or functionality, but the fact that it is up to 50% cheaper is a big plus for gamers thirsty for cost performance.
■ Enjoy high definition and clarity with Nano IPS
The advantage of Nano IPS is that it provides high color reproduction while at the same time experiencing the wide viewing angle characteristics of an IPS panel. Although some premium models equipped with quantum dots also promote these advantages, there are many reactions in the market that it is difficult to see them as having characteristics as good as IPS.
It is difficult to ignore the advantage of the high contrast ratio, which is the advantage of the VA series, for video, but gamers prefer the IPS nano because the response speed of the IPS nano is very high.
BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400 is a product that can fully experience the advantages of Nano IPS. The color gamut of 98% compared to the DCI-P3 specified in the specification was confirmed to be 93.4% based on the actual measurement, and it was measured to be 98.8% more than the 98% in the specification in the overall size.
The brightness of the screen is also 313.94 cd/m2 based on the SDR standard, which is enough for use in a bright indoor environment. Even when measured during the day, the native contrast ratio was confirmed to be 826:1, indicating that you can experience clear picture quality without feeling soft.
The response speed, which is more important for gamers, was satisfactory enough to be counted among the nano IPS panels I have tested.
The screen without an afterimage has been reproduced enough to think that the specification stated as GtG 1ms is a true native specification, but just by looking at the ghost result of the UFO Test, you can guess what level it is.
If you want a clearer screen than the response speed of the basic option, it is recommended to set the response speed option to Low. Options higher than Low cause the opposite afterimage, so it is recommended to use Low or the default state as much as possible.
■ HDR brightness is disappointing, but there was no difference
The HDR of the BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400 was no different from a small and medium brand monitor.
This is the same screen that could be displayed at HDR400 level. In a well-lit room, the overall brightness feels a little dark, and some very bright scenes or parts of the HDR video are clipped. The maximum brightness measured was less than 300 cd/m2, which was darker than SDR.
However, most HDR images were not difficult to enjoy. The boundary of the clipping area was very natural, and the feeling of darkness was easy to adjust.
No blurry screen occurred when switching to HDR mode, and it was possible to enable and use FreeSync and HDR mode at the same time.
■ PIP, PBP and FreeSync
BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400 comes with various additional functions.
Among them, if it is an ultra-wide monitor, PIP and PBP functions, which are extremely useful, are supported by BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400. If you use this function, you can connect an IPTV set-top or OTT player as well as a PC to view the game at the same time
If there are two PCs, it can be controlled simultaneously with one monitor, so it can be used for multiple purposes.
FreeSync has become a basic option for gaming monitors that needs no explanation. With this technology supported, the refresh rate and frames can be synchronized, giving players smoother movement while solving the problem of missing frames and misalignment due to timing issues.
However, many low-end monitors were made inconvenient to use FreeSync and HDR at the same time.
With FreeSync, you can experience smoother game movements and play games with clearer picture quality with HDR’s wide contrast ratio.
■ Once again, cost-effectiveness and niche were attacked
BitM has always been targeting niche markets. No matter how many competitors, it has led the cost-effectiveness market with a price, performance and specifications that anyone can recognize, and it still maintains that strategy.
BitM Newsync X34WQ144 Nano IPS Curved HDR400 introduced today is such a product.
In the 34-inch ultra-wide curved gaming monitor market, the relatively expensive nano IPS model was released at a competitive price.
No matter how cheap it was, I made this condition, which had to pay at least 1 million won, to the low range of 700,000 won, so I can’t help but recognize the cost-effectiveness, I think it be a product worth making.
