@OP this is actually a 16:9 monitor btw.
I just can't help but think that my NECK would get worn out working with a monitor like this.
I remember when I was so excited about 25 years ago and got my first 27" (tube) TV!
I sat clear across a 17 foot room and watched that TV and I thought it was HUGE!
Might have to save up and try one of these out one day soon.
Not at all, from about 2-3 feet away, you'll be just fine. I even move closer to maybe 1-1.5 feet during FPS so none of my vision is wasted :p
