On sale atm from DSE for $399.  PB Tech is around $575.  Im very tempted just so I dont have 2x24" sitting on my desk anymore.  Pity they dont have the 34's.  

 

LG 29UM68-P

 

Im guessing warranty would be covered by LG here?

If you look at the AU DSE site they have heaps of monitors. It seems everything on the NZ site is < $400 because GST. I have actually bought one at PB for about $400 before and returned it unopened when I realized I had bought the 1080 one.

 

Height wise they are similar to a 24" 1920x1080 so I think the low res would be ok on the 29, but the 34 at twice the price and the same low-res is a no go for me. The price goes crazy on 21:9 when you go to 1440p panels.

Yeah PB tend to have them on sale fairly often.  I saw the 34 for $600 once,  and by the time Id debated it with myself they had sold out.

Damn I was hoping this would go unnoticed until next payday haha.  It's been on the DSE site for a good 3 weeks now.

I have an AOC branded version of this and love it.  It does sit beside a 24" 1920x1200 as I move between 4 applications all day (2 on each display, slightly overlapped).

 

I was tempted to get another one, but after being stung with GST and duties recently (due to an exchange rate shift on a Kickstarter deal) I'm concerned that $399 might be close enough to $400 for the delightful people at Customs.
