U2713hm ~ 640 + tax 2560 x 1440. This one ~ 629.10 + tax 2560 x 1080.
Don't get me wrong, deal is good.
I just don't get the point of this monitor. you can get the same horizontal space with the u2713hm while having some ( not some... it's actually quiet a lot) extra vertical space for 10 dollar more. and this is in no way to mimic a side by side set up as you would have 3960 x 1080 if it were two side by side set up.
Only thing I can see that may be worth a while is you can get almost a full screen for those movie with 2.39:1 aspect ratio
Your math is wrong on that. Even with 2 16:9 monitors together it would only have to be 3840 x 1080 for 2 monitors side by side. For 2 "normal" non-widescreen 4:3 monitors, it would only have to be 2880 x 1080, so this is pretty close to that. That said, it's not quite two normal monitors and it is indeed cinematic widescreen. Would probably be excellent for someone doing cinematic video editing.
What do you guys think? Should I get this Dell or wait for the new LG EA93 ultra-widescreen? Which one is better?
I guess the panel is the same thing, as LG makes all the IPS panel.
and utility wise.... I don't see that LG is having any advantage. in fact by just looking at its stand, it looks like a fixed stand to me vs the dell one you can at least adjsut the hight.
But as we all know now. this type of aspect ratio is a weird breed, so things we all commonly agree on like a VESA mount and such may not apply to these monitors :X
I just can't imagine flipping this up and make my work station monitor looks like a ad stand at a bus stop.
Why not get 2 and stack them vertically! Then it'd be 2560 x 2160 which is better than the 2560 x 1440 that everyone is jizzing about
At $10 more, why not buy two 2560x1440 monitors and have EVEN MORE room? At a $10 difference in price it makes NO SENSE to get this stupid resolution. If it was significantly cheaper than it would have a reason to exist, but why pay 2% less for only 75% as many pixels?
