21:9 monitor for gaming?

I'm interested in this: http://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-34UM65-P
It's huge and gaming could look really good on this
But is the black level good enough for gaming?
I would really appreciate comments from owners of this monitor
Thanks

would u be gaming on pc or on console? Because i know that some (or all) 21:9 monitors when used with consoles, you will have black bars because it's not running at the native resolution and the same aspect ratio.

I think it may be big wide scale monitor. I like it. I am playing good with large wide scale screen...

Do you have to horsepower to drive 2560 x 1080? In my opinion, if you're not going to running at least high, you won't be getting the most value out of your purchase.

But for the price of this monitor or less, I'd still recommend getting a 27"+ 120Hz 1440p monitor. I think the pure fluidity and ultra crisp image will prove more pleasing that pure width.

Here is a pretty good review:
