PRISM+ has become the number one gaming monitor brand in Singapore, its home nation, and is fast becoming well-known across the globe. The company has a direct-to-consumer approach which means you won’t find its products in stores, but you will benefit from better pricing with no middle-man fees.
The XQ340 Pro is an incredible fluid, and delightfully bright, stutter-free ultrawide monitor aimed at gamers, creative professionals, and generally anybody who wants the benefits of a large monitor and display resolution.
It's 34" with a native 3440x1440 resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio. It delivers a 1ms response time and 144Hz refresh rate, which means fast and smooth graphics without stutter or tears. The screen itself has a minimalistic zero-bezel design and an adjustable ergonomic stand. It’s also a curved monitor, with 1500R curvature, meaning despite the size you can take the screen in at a glance - there’s no awkward continual moving your head left and right or up and down. The screen also uses a quantum dot backlight display to ensure nice, bright displays. Within the monitor’s menu, you can opt to change the brightness manually or to turn on auto-sensing so the brightness adjusts itself based on the lighting around you.
The monitor has a three-year warranty and provides support for VESA mounting as well as the included stand. It’s also versatile for many different uses, with two DisplayPort inputs and two HDMI inputs.
If you want to know exactly how big 34" is, the monitor itself is 362mm high by 808mm wide. The height increases to a minimum of 398mm, and a maximum of 495mm, when on the stand. You can lift and lower the monitor by 100mm and tilt it between +5 and -15 degrees.
Ultimately, mere numbers don't do the monitor justice. You need to see it to believe it. Here’s how many cells you can see in a blank, untouched Excel spreadsheet - all the way from cell A to BA, that’s 53 columns wide, and 56 rows deep.
Here's what Grand Theft V looks like in 3440x1440, showing a panorama across both sides of the road, and scenery on either side.
and here's the Minecraft home screen too, showing the menu buttons literally minuscule in comparison to the screen real-estate you get.
Surprisingly, for a monitor of this size and with these specs, the PRISM+ XQ340 Pro is an affordable $599. If it was sold through stores it would retail for a minimum of $999.
Now, there is growing popularity in unboxing videos for those who love the surprise and suspense, along with the magic, of unveiling great tech. Despite having a face for radio and a voice for print, here’s my unboxing video to help you see just how large this monitor is! And watch out for where I accidentally unclipped the cable tidying cover.
