Its large 34-inch screen size, impressive ergonomics, high color accuracy, and wide viewing angles make the Gigabyte M34WQ a good pick for casual gaming or office use, but buyers will have to contend with its lack of 2.1 HDMI ports and poor contrast.

our Verdict

The Gigabyte M34WQ is a 34-inch gaming monitor that reviewers felt would be a great pick for casual gaming as well as office use. Thanks to its matte-anti glare finish, reviewers from Rtings lauded it for its impressive reflection handling and confirmed that it would be great for use in a brightly lit office space or environment. They were also impressed with its fast response time and credited this to its lack of motion blur during fast-action scenes. Its high color accuracy was also hailed by experts, leading them to the conclusion that it would be ideal for color-critical work. Testers from DisplayNinja also praised its support for both FreeSync and G-Sync technology, and thanks to its 144Hz refresh rate, they did not come across any screen tearing when gaming.

Unfortunately, they were not impressed with two things: its low contrast ratio and lack of HDMI 2.1 ports. Its low contrast ratio made it hard to view in a dark room, and its missing HDMI 2.1 ports meant that it wouldn’t be compatible with modern consoles.
