"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.

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.

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.
