Dark Matter, the high-performance and high-value gaming accessories and peripherals brand from Monoprice, unveiled its new 34-inch ultrawide (UWQHD) and
49-inch curved super ultrawide (DQHD) monitors. These two monitors carry forward the brand's commitment to bringing to market products that refuse to compromise performance and value.

"We take great pride in developing our Dark Matter monitors, and hand select our panels to ensure they provide gamers with top-tier performance without compromising productivity," said Carter Salley, Business Unit Manager, Monoprice. "Featuring a less extreme curve than competing gaming monitors, these displays boast a more comfortable viewing experience with less eye strain for mixed-use."



Dark Matter 49-inch Curved Gaming Monitor (43305, MSRP: $999.99)
The 49-inch curved gaming monitor is designed to provide a jaw-dropping, cinematic field of view for work, play, and everything in between. It offers the equivalent viewing surface area of two 27-inch 16:9 monitors side-by-side but without any breaks in the picture. The ergonomic 1800R curvature enhances
immersion and reduces eye strain, while Quantum LCD technology enhances visuals for lifelike color accuracy, deeper blacks, and greater brightness.

  • 5120x1440p resolution
  • 120 Hz refresh rate
  • 32:9 aspect ratio
  • 1800R curvature
  • VA panel technology with Quantum LCD
  • Adaptive Sync Supported
  • VESA compatibility

Dark Matter 34-inch Curved Ultrawide Gaming Monitor (42772, $499.99)
The 34-inch ultrawide gaming monitor provides 35% more desktop real estate than a traditional 16:9 QHD display. The subtle 1500R curvature provides excellent ergonomics for long workdays and extended gaming sessions. Quantum LCD technology delivers a wider gamut of colors for excellent color
accuracy and enhanced brightness and contrast.

  • 3440x1440p resolution
  • 165 Hz refresh rate
  • 21:9 aspect ratio
  • 1500R curvature
  • VA panel technology with Quantum LCD
  • Adaptive Sync Supported
  • Vesa compatibility

These two monitors join a variety of new Dark Matter panels launched in recent months, including a 32-inch 165 Hz QHD display that is ideal for desktop and simulator gaming. All Dark Matter monitors come with a one-year pixel-perfect warranty, 30-day money-back guarantee, and hassle-free packaging. These monitors are available immediately at Monoprice.com.

When you missed the fact your new screen actually kills your audio. But you still try to market it as a great thing.

Meh, who cares! 7.1 "surround" audio (headphones) FTW :rockout:

Another nice one is the reflective glass under that monitor.

So Dark Matter 49-inch is like a watered down G9 Odyssay but with 1800R. I have had the G9 for a few months and imagining it with 1800R curve is weird . Would love to see a review of this later with color accuracy, quality compared to other models and how the 1800R affects the experience VS like G9 and such models.

This isnt really a new product / shape or size. They sold this same monitor last year with same spec, but changed to a newer panel as samsung no longer produces this VA panel anymore.
