Been waiting for another chance to scoop up a 29UB55-B at this price. Now I have two, just need one more.

Thanks!

34" - curved or not curved? I'd like to stick with a 2560x1080 resolution, as I feel I'll be satisfied with that (1080p was always fine to me), but I'm not sure if there is a curved 34" 2560x1080 comparable monitor (to this one) that is also within $100 or so of this price.

No curved ones in LG 34" 1080p Ultra wide line up . I think Acer or Benq may have one (2560x1080) , but not at this price range (due to possible higher refresh rates).

I am very tempting and not sure if I should get the 29" or 34". I work in the IT field and have a home office with two 24"s. I don't play computer game.
Will the 29" replace the two 24s?

I can't say 100% for sure because I don't use two, I use three, but I would assume it's for more workspace.

Can you get around the 2 limit by submitting multiple orders? Anybody have experience with this at newegg before I try it and have to cancel?

I have had dual monitors for 6 years. Although I am an amateur at it, I use them for photo editing. I use them for researching something. I use them when I Skype my son while we play Starcraft. Pretty much any time you want to have 2 or more windows open and need to keep an eye on both, it is nice to have.

I'm assuming you have a smaller monitor currently with 2560 x 1080, which is fine. But please don't get a 34" 1080p monitor unless your eyesight is bad and need everything to be huge. Monitors aren't like TVs in that you'll be much more closer to it, meaning the balance of screen size and pixel density is much more important to consider. A monitor can look big but will function no differently than a smaller monitor in terms of productivity if additional pixels aren't there.

PPI @ 34" 2560 x 1080 is awful (~81, compared to the mainstream 24" 1920 x 1080 at ~91 PPI) and you get less screen real estate than you would with a 27" 2560 x 1440 (which are also much cheaper). Does this fact make it unbearable to use? Probably not. However, the price listed here has no appeal when compared to something like this deal for a 34" 3440 x 1440 ultrawide. That one will actually function like dual monitors without bezels. Only have to pay about $120 more to get much more pixels and higher pixel density (~109 PPI) as well. It's a small price gap for such a large improvement in my opinion. Even if this was out of your budget range, I'd sooner urge you to buy multiple, cheaper monitors than the 34" 1080p.

2 is always better than 1. 3 is always better than 2.
