    "UltraWide 21:9 display"


    They launched this format as a high end TV last year, which has just been discontinued due to low sales.

    I wonder why they think it will fare any better as a desktop monitor..:confused:

    Can they be mounted on wall? I've noticed that most of new monitors can only stand on the supplied desk stand which sucks. I want to hang them on wall so i can have my desk clean.

    I can only imagine how much these are going to fricking cost. The 27" version would be so nice!

    I would personally buy one if it would have been a little larger. Something like 34" or even more....

    LOL, how is it photoshopped. It is possible to make screens with very small to not bezel at all monitors.

    I wonder why the even make all these thick bezels in the first place. Last time i have disassembled my monitor for home repair, it was like 2 centimeters of plastic where the actual screen is enclosed into metal case anyway and its bezel was just few milimeters thick. All screens could easily have just 2-3mm thick bezels. But companies obviously think having fat edges makes monitors look like they are worth more or something...

    Definately shopped, just the glass goes from side to side:http://photos.expertreviews.co.uk/images/front_picture_library_Expert_Reviews/dir_346/er_photo_173422_52.jpg

    LG does this too: Consumer Warning: LG IPS237 / IPS277 (1.2mm bezel lie)

    Those panels need stability and fat bezels are the cheapest solution...

    I was just about make a post about that. I wasn't 100% certain it was Phillips, but now that you say it as well, it is a little perplexing why they would cancel their TV lines due to low sales but believe it's still a viable desktop monitor alternative.

    iO, brilliant observation. Someone at Philips definitely would be fined (fired?) for that fake pics.

    We are still yet to be sure about applying 3D to many markets, but the 1440p concept is always a good thing. If the market can downsize the price range a bit more I would buy two of these.
