Dude, TVs usually have horrible latency and input lag but I agree with the general sentiment. I do not get the popularity of ultra-wide.
But I'm also not much of a fan of curved (well, I mean I am but not when it comes to LCDs ).
It all seems very gimmicky and I'm sure it would annoy me when doing other things than gaming which is probably 80% to 90% of the total time spent in front of the LCD.

I really hope this fad dies soon-ish and that monitor makers (re-)focus on large regular non-curved 16:9 quality LCDs.
I already own a 32" so my personal preference would be a 32", low latency IPS/PLS/PVA panel, 144Hz (or higher), G-Sync, 1440p (or maybe 2160p), USB hub. Pretty please with sugar on top.

You should sit in front of a 34" 21:9 curved one in person. You will get hooked. They are just awesome for gamers. IMO much better than this first generation VR goggles. The immersion is astonishing.
I was about to buy the Acer because I saw a Samsung one in a shop once and was hooked instantly, but then read about how bad its quality is, so I will keep waiting.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

I'm not sold on 21:9. Too many reports of issues with many games using the weird resolutions. I'd rather go for a standard aspect ratio 4k, curved, 48" quantum dot TV and use it as a monitor.

RE: Asus 34" monitor PG348Q;
I know prices will come down when more competition, (Samsung just announced a few) but I don't think I want to wait.. I'll be getting one of these in a couple months once QC issues are resolved somewhat and hope for the best on a pristine monitor

That PG34Q looks so nice. Any real difference from the Acer Predator?
Nope, most likely as crappy and overpriced. Its Asus quality after all.
Of course you might get lucky and get a flawless one, which some people were with the Acer, but then theres still the question of long term reliability.
I would wait until more producers offer IPS 21:9 with 100+ Hz. Prices should drop then too.

Yikes, those RotTR benchmarks are a little scary. My gaming rigs are decent (i5-5950 and i7-6700k, both with GTX970 and 8-16GB RAM) and I'd still be a little worried about decent framrates and system temperatures.
