After a small eternity of waiting, OLED monitors are finally becoming commonplace. But that doesn’t mean they’re affordable. For most of the models on the market, you’re looking at four figures minimum, especially if you want an ultrawide model. So it’s a good thing that MSI has its 34-inch ultrawide OLED on sale today for a record low of $779.

The MSI MEG 342C is comparable to other 34-inch OLED monitors from Dell and Samsung, with a standard 3440×1440 resolution and a subtle 1800R curve to its panel. With a 175Hz refresh rate and a lightning-fast .03ms response time, it’s ready to tackle even the fastest multiplayer games with the perfect blacks and vibrant colors that OLED brings to the table.

Other highlights of the spec list include DisplayPort 1.4 and double HDMI 2.1, plus USB-C video and four extra USB-A ports for accessories. An integrated KVM switch can handle multiple machines in picture-by-picture or picture-in-picture mode. The screen supports AMD FreeSync and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 and, naturally, it includes a little RGB bling around the back.

MSI includes “OLED Care” features to prevent burn-in with pixel shifting, refreshing, and automatic dimming on static screens. It also comes with a three-year warranty that explicitly covers burn-in. The regular price is $999 and this “limited time offer” from MSI’s US store doesn’t have a specific expiration date, so get an order in quickly if you’re ready to buy.
