This newish FreeSync display from Philips features a 1800R curve to it's 31.5" 1080p display, with a top refresh rate of 75Hz.  The panel itself is an advanced Vertical Alignment display with a W-LED backlight, 8-bit colour and a reported 5ms response time.  It is relatively inexpensive, at £230 or roughly $300 and Kitguru found that this required some compromises on Philips' part.  There is still a market for it, as many gamers are less interested in colour accuracy when playing DOOM and care far more about decent response without tearing.  Check out the full review for more.

"The Philips 328E8QJAB5 is a monitor that serves up a tempting design for a surprising price. The £230 cost undercuts most of its rivals – and, for that money, you still get a 31.5in curved panel with AMD FreeSync."

31.5"? It's not 21/9 is it, its standard 1080p, right? Arent those pixels WAY to big for a monitor? I mean, it's fine for a tv, but that just seems too big for something you're gonna be a foot or 2 away from.

The price is nice tho.
