That's actually not an extremely unreasonable price. Considering how the monitor is such a large part of the gaming experience, and graphics cards are costing £1000 for marginal improvements, I'd say that £900 for a monitor that will change your gaming experience for the better is not terrible value.Quote

Not sure about a VA panel on such a wide monitor. Viewing angles aren't the best and would probably be fairly noticeable on a panel this large. I'd rather have IPS for a monitor this size but it still is great value as noted above.Quote

Depends on the panel, it's a complete non-issue in a G9.Quote
