    You can type 21⅓:9 if you want ...

    To put this monitor's physical viewable height into perspective, then

    29.0" 2560x1080 (11.27" high) = 18.0" 1280x1024 (11.24" high) = 21.2" 1920x1200 or 2560x1600 (11.24" high)

    Indeed, it is designed to replace multimonitor setups.

    Isn't the price sort of a big deal too? Sure it's an odd aspect ratio... but you're getting an extremely high resolution 29" IPS screen with an LED backlight from dell at under $700. That sure sounds like a step in the right direction from me (even if screen surface area is way under other 29" monitors).

    Does gaming support this resolution? I assume so. Would you see more, or would it just stretch the picture. I am curious.

    You forgot 1920*1440, which I think you confused for 1920*1200 as a CRT resolution. Mine supports 1920*1440, though at a low refresh rate. I have it set to 1600*1200 though.

    THIS LOOKS CRAZY!!!!

    Although I can see problems with this being used in the real world, ie games not supporting that resolution etc. Although I do realise this is not a gaming monitor.

    Fantastic, glad i held off on the asus 27", might get this instead, bet it's very good gear, thanx for heads up.

    14.12"x19.7"

    It would be super grand for gaming on 2 thirds, web browsing on the other 3rd i wonder lol.


    Good for productivity?

    Depends on what "productivity" means. If reading or creating A4/PDF documents then NO. If Excel spreadsheets... then maybe... but other users would be p**sed with your long but short spreadsheets :laugh:. For web browsing, not at all. For email inbox... no. For file manager, two directories open at the same time... yes. For documents side by side... NO, because 1080y means the vertical height is too small and you will be scrolling all the time. For watching video. Yes. But the same people that complain about horizontal black bars (letterbox) will now complain about vertical black bars. For gaming... could be if game can be hacked to support the resolution.

    All in all, it looks great, but I would prefer the PRINCE of resolutions, 1:1 2048x2048 like you get in Air Traffic control, or the KING of displays, native 6MP (3280 x 2048) in 30"

    New MONSTER on the block: The MDSC-8156 is a large-screen surgical display featuring a 56-inch LCD panel (16:9) with Quad Full HD resolution (3840 x 2160). Nice

    ^yes, I find those prices a little disappointing for us. Maybe next year... :ohwell:

    Silly (after all those years) would still love an IBM T221.

    As we're consumers I don't agree. Different worlds alltogether.

    ^yes, but you do love consumer resolutions. There are peeps here that like hi-res screens. Different interests, different workflows, different expectations, different aspirations.

    Get a monitor and a half in one, tempting!

    Though if I had that kind of money for a new monitor, I'd probably spend the extra and get a 2560x1440 model for the X. The things I'd do for more X...

    Hopefully Intel isn't pulling our cables and they really want to get the resolution train rolling again! Less compromise becase of more choices and lower prices.

    You can make a game run at any resolution you like (crazy non standard ones may not work so well).

    I wager that every game (that already supports widescreen) would run this res perfectly. But they're going to require editing of the config file (easy for most games).

    Yup.

    I work with y, x most of the time instead of x, y so I usually get it backwards.
