    Thinking of stupid..... :P

    I paid almost exactly the same money (adjusted for inflation) in about 2009 for a pair of 1680x1050 monitors. I know monitors have dropped a lot in price since then, but still, I think it's not a bad price at all.

  • United4Games - 6 hours ago

    rather pay for 3x24" monitors this is just nah

    Like the feature where you can split the screen

  • scoobtoober29 - 11 hours ago

    Any updates to HDR monitors for consumer use. Reasonable price and high refresh.

    3840x1080 is not cool, that vertical resolution is horrible. I had one of the first 29" ultra-wides at 2560 x 1080 and it was crap. Sold it very quickly. Few years later very hesitantly got a 34" at 3440 x 1440 and it is leagues better. The 34" is so good in fact that I prefer to play my flight-sim and other games on it rather than Oculus Rift and I don't even miss the tripple-screen setup I had before!

  • Charn Cornelissen - 13 hours ago

    This versus 3 screens? This is dump but triple screens isn’t?

  • ghanus2009 - 13 hours ago

    Does it have VESA mount holes? It would be great to wall or desk arm mount it. Them legs are the deal breaker.

  • swaggernier - 14 hours ago

    and i was complaining my 40 inch Toshiba "TV" was too small ;P (well for gaming it is all about the FOV or "Field of View"! but if you crank the slider above 120, it become TOO distorted to look "normal" so a wider screen is the solution! this screen could help you by not needing to go above 90! normal eye range from 90 to 104 FOV, that is why some of you see your hair/side burns or head phones and gets annoyed. some one with a FOV of 90 does not have much of this problem. sports players like hokey guys usually have a FOV above 100! in Naruto the Hyuga family has a FOV of 356... i wonder how that maps out in a head ;P then again the distortion happens since you are "Squeezing" all the FOV in a space meant for 90 (4:3) i think i have close to 100 (i see my side burns and headphones ;P) but stuff do not warp like you see on a screen at 100 FOV. BTW at 16:9 you don't see much warping at 100 FOV. (DooM at 180 FOV! that was disorienting! try it!)

  • Hieu Nguyen - 23 hours ago

    I bough the monitor after watch this clip. Yeah, completely sastified with work and gaming, watching movies are so immersive with mpc(strech to windows+scale to 16:9) and madVr. Dont listen to anyone, just see and experience it by your own eyes, then make decision.

    Good luck trying to play a first person shooter on that thing...having to turn your head just so see the whole screen.

    Yea' no. This is the best monitor ever. I'll never have anything like this as I'm a single full-time Dad. But, I'll just sit here and try not to feel awkward about the bulge I'm suffering despite watching a video of Linus. Hardcore FPS. Yes.
