Got it about a month ago at this price from my local Costco. Awesome monitor!

Is this equivalent to the footprint of a 24" in terms of screen height?

Yes, this just replaced my Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor from 10 years ago, and the vertical screen height/size is exactly the same, just much much wider

Is it not the same screen height as a 27" monitor? As per displaywars.com

Comparing a 16:9 24" Monitor with a 21:9 34" monitor, the size difference is about 1.62 inches.

What you said is correct, but it turns out both of our 24" screens are closer to 16x10 (1900x1200), so it's still really close, at least in our cases.

You're getting less vertical pixels though, also the pixel density is lower.

Yeah, but the horizontal increase more than covers it.

I'm not getting it for gaming in my case, but for data and excel sheets. It's a better fit than two monitors in this case.

Although I did buy a 144hz 24" 1080p screen for my gaming rig before g-sync came out and didn't miss the 200 extra vertical pixels.

Seems like a lot to spend for only 20% more pixels. I'd argue these type of screens are really only good for gaming/watching movies since the pixel density is so poor. If work space is a big deal and you're on a budget, I'd grab a 16:9 1440p monitor or something like that(or a 3440x1440 if you really don't have a budget and just want something with a ton of work space).

I'll have to see that for myself. Of course in store they're never showing off the crispness of their text display in excel.

The larger resolutions would likely make the text smaller and therefore have to be increased again, so many of the space "gains" would be lost, even though the text should be sharper because of more pixels.

You say this costs a lot, but 1440p screens aren't cheap right now either.

Well a 1440p 16x9 can be had in the same general price range. If you move up to 27", you shouldn't see too big a drop in pixel density. For reference, a 24" 1440p is about an 18" 1080p and a 27" is about 20.25" at 1080p. Your screen is the roughly equivalent of 23.3" at 1080p and this UW is roughly the equivalent of 27" at 1080p so that should hopefully give you some reference point.

I own the um58 29" and I love it. 75hz is a noticeable difference, and the screen really is top notch. if you need productivity, look no further in this price bracket. if you were willing to spend more, it may be worth looking at some of the 3440x1440 options if you wanted this for a work monitor. that would allow you to shrink many things and get more onto this screen, allowing it to perhaps replace 3 monitors

gsync is really nice, but isn't worth the price premium. If I had the money to spend, I'd spend it on more gpu horsepower

It should be closer to a 27" than 24". That's the norm for 34" ultrawides.

http://www.displaywars.com/27-inc...-inch-21x9

A 34" ultrawide is on par with a 27" vertically, but with an additional 4" on either side.
