I absolutely love mine! I ditched my tripple monitor setup for the Dell 34" ultra wide and it's very nice. Great build quality too.

Hello Andrew, I use XP 11 and based on what I've read and viewed, full-screen mode does not fill the screen but rather leaves black bars at the top and bottom of the 34" screen. What's your experience?

I have every sim pretty much..... XP11, FSX, P3Dv4, DCS, FSW... I don't have any issues with filling the entire screen or black bars. With the microsoft based simulators you just have to adjust your zoom level but with XP11 you have to adjust your Field of View to get the right spacing between yourself and the cockpit. Otherwise it's a great monitor for flight simulation.

That is something to take into account however is your system. You will be adding a lot more pixels and a lot larger field of view... that is if you are upgrading from a typical HD monitor.

Hi Folks,

Amazon has the older model Dell Ultra Wide on sale for $500.00 for another 16 hours...

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-UltraSharp-34-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00PXYRMPE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1511795929&sr=8-3&keywords=21%3A9+dell

I'm tempted...

Regards,
Scott

I had one in the past, switched for a 144hz gsync for general gaming and a 4k tv for flight simulation, but its a great monitor, very well build like almost everything that Dell does, as native 30hz support ;) at that price is an excellent purchase.

It is tempting. I currently use an LG 39" 1080p TV as my monitor. I love the size, which I would clearly be giving back with a 34", but I'm wondering if the increased resolution would make up for it...

Curious what make/model you opted for with your 4k TV for flight sim?

If you're going to get one, this is the time to do it. I feel it is one of those purchases that you won't regret, especially after you go back to that page and look at the price you could've paid.

Thanks for the reply. I opted for 4k as well and ended up ordering the TCL S405. Fingers crossed that it pays off.
