Product Overview

Cooler Master GM34-CW is a mainstream 34-inch UW-QHD ultra-wide 1500R-curved gaming monitor in Cooler Master's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel that reaches 144 Hz maximum refresh rate.
Notably, this monitor supports HDR up to DisplayHDR 400. Its 1500R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. In terms of color reproduction, one can expect above average performance. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
GM34-CW's OSD leaves out style and graphics but includes all the necessary options for gaming and image quality adjustment. In Color Setting, you'll find four picture modes plus color temp and gamma options. Motion processing and response are as good as the best gaming monitors we've reviewed.
