Xiaomi Mi Curved Gaming Monitor 34 product details
Update 25. November 2021
Banggood is celebrating Black Friday and has the Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor on offer! With the coupon made available to us, the price of the curved gaming monitor is reduced to just 344 euros.
With direct shipping from Europe (CZ, ES & PL warehouse) there are no additional costs and the monitor will be with you in around 3-5 working days! Simply call up the discount code above and enter it in the shopping cart.
Alternatively, it is worth taking a look at the BlitzWolf BW-GM3 monitor to throw. Not only does it look very similar, but it also offers an almost identical data sheet. This monitor even works with a 165 Hz refresh rate.
The EU version of the Xiaomi Curved Monitor is now also available again from the Banggood EU warehouse. The only difference is the extension cord that comes with an EU plug. So the extra charge is not worth it! Here the Product page of the EU version.
An ultra-wide monitor with a 34 inch curved screen, high-resolution 3440 x 1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 144 Hz for less than 400 €? At first glance it reads like wishful thinking, but there actually is such a monitor. The Xiaomi Gaming Monitor, which is currently only available on the Chinese market, makes the competition really work up a sweat. For comparable models you have to dig deeper into your pockets in this country.
Samsung VA panel
A 1500 inch VA panel from Samsung that is curved in a 34R radius is installed. In addition to the features already mentioned, the maximum brightness is 300 cd / m², the color space coverage is 121 percent sRGB and the contrast ratio is 3.000: 1 by Xiaomi. All these features also suggest that it is a special one Quantum Dot Display concerns.
VA panel and gaming? Is that even compatible? Clear! Although the response time of the display is not <1 ms, with a response time of less than 4 ms, the Xiaomi Curved Monitor is very suitable for casual gamers. Adaptive-Sync is supported in the form of AMD Freesync (certification) and G-Sync (no certification). To use the full potential of the monitor (4K - 144 Hz), DisplayPort 1.4 is required. The monitor has two sockets. With HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, the refresh rate is reduced to 120 Hz. The display does not support HDR content.
Height adjustable, English OSD
The monitor is supplied with a solid, height-adjustable stand. In addition, the Xiaomi monitor is also suitable for wall mounting. A suitable bracket is even included in the scope of delivery. Although the gaming monitor was only available on the Chinese market, the OSD can be set in English. This makes it easier to use and makes an import even more interesting. In addition to various presets for gaming, image processing and video playback, the Xiaomi Curved Monitor supports a picture-in-picture and a picture-by-picture mode.

Xiaomi Mi Curved Gaming Monitor 34 reviews
So now I want to share my experience with you too. Almost three weeks ago I ordered the monitor from Banggood. The shipment from the Czech Republic was quick and it only took 5 days to get the part to me.
In my case I had ordered the EU model, which already came with the right cable with EU plug. In terms of workmanship, there is nothing wrong with it. It can definitely work with LG, Samsung and co. keep up.
I think the panel itself is great. I couldn't see any defective pixels, there is almost no clouding and the viewing angles are top notch. The color accuracy didn't disappoint either. I created my own color profile with a borrowed Spyder5. But you don't have to, because the difference to the given profiles is very small.
There is nothing wrong with the response times. Not quite as fast as a Nano IPS, but you don't really feel that either.
The only point of criticism I have is the lack of 144 Hz support on HDMI. Other monitors can do that. Unfortunately, the Xiaomi Curved cannot.
I have been using the monitor for a good 2 months now after I ordered it from Banggood in May. Delivered from the Czech warehouse within 10 days.
My first impression is great. Very good workmanship, stable construction and a beautiful design. After switching on for the first time, I checked the panel for pixel errors. I found two small pixels on the edges. So everything is still in the norm. Banggood then reimbursed me 50 euros. The panel is a VA from Samsung.
Gaming: The 144 Hz can only be reached via DP. Via HDMI there is a maximum of 100 Hz. There is hardly any ghosting or streaking on the panel. There is no noticeable input lag. Free sync works. I couldn't try G-Sync.
OSD: completely usable in English and easy to use.
Colors: Excellent color rendering. I work a lot with Photoshop and therefore I calibrated the monitor to Adobe RGB. Got 95% color space coverage. sRGB it is 99%.
There is a clear recommendation from me if you are looking for a curved monitor for work, gaming and other things.
You don't have to think too much about the price and the hardware. There is simply nothing comparable here on the market. Strike!
Mine has now also arrived. I ordered it from Banggood at the beginning of August. It was sent from the Spanish warehouse. It took 5 days for delivery (DPD). It was delivered in secure packaging. So far top.
I have next to nothing to complain about the monitor itself. I like the workmanship and stability very much. The cables can be hidden nicely in the base. The height adjustment and inclination are pleasantly smooth.
The display is also of good quality. I didn't notice any pixel errors. But I didn't look for it explicitly either. At 144 Hz, the display is buttery smooth. I also like the sharpness and color representation. What I'm missing are the speakers. I assumed that it has some, because the OSD says something about volume.
Otherwise, I also give a buy recommendation.
