Monitors are a personal thing so it kind of depends on what is important to you. Things like what is it being used for, desk space, type of panel and screen size among other factors play into the decision.

These are suggestions since you said mid to high end.

This will definatly be upper end: http://www.techpowerup.com/208230/samsung-introduces-se790c-curved-monitor.html

2nd option: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/lg-monitor-34uc97s

3rd option: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/lg-monitor-34um95

4th option if you would be OK with a TN panel: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-90lm00u0b01370

Im waiting on a 3440x1440 IPS G-Sync 21:9 if one ever gets manufactured.

Take into consideration the things that I mentioned above.

A lower response time say 5ms or less is good. TN panel or IPS panel.

TN= faster response times but lower quality picture.

IPS= better picture quality but lower response times.

Which one...... the question of the ages.......
