Huawei’s new 34-inch gaming panel is beautifully built and engineered. It’s fabulous value for money. But despite a 165Hz refresh rate, it’s a little short on pixel response. The audio quality of the impressive-looking soundbar is also disappointing.
The new Huawei MateView GT has landed like a bomb into the slightly stale PC monitor market. This 34-inch ultrawide gaming panel isn’t perfect. In many ways, it’s not terribly innovative, but by some measures it makes most other monitors look cheap and lazy.
The headline stats don’t reveal anything too radical. To be sure, a 34-inch curved monitor with 3,440 by 1,440 pixels, 165Hz refresh and USB-C connectivity with device charging (note charging power is limited to just 10W) is a very nice on-paper package.
