I have a Samsung S32D850T and cannot bring myself to upgrade because all of these new monitors have tiny vertical heights. This one is a 38" versus my 32" and yet it has 1.26" less vertical height. Is there anyone on the planet that doesn't love scrolling? I cannot understand why having six miles of horizontal view is desirable. There is nothing besides gaming that can take advantage of that and you're giving up so much vertical space.

Waaaa???

The vertical resolution of this monitor is 1600, the Samsung S32D850T is 1440

FairlightRacing, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Rotate the screen if you love vertical space

Agreed. I purchased this work purposes. Comparing 3-4 documents at once is pretty nice with 6 miles of horizontal space

You're comparing something with less resolution (2560x1440) -16:9 to a higher resolution 21:9 - (3840x1600)
I just don't see any logic here. Even if you compare 16:9 4K monitor I still take 21:9 1440+ anyday. The extra wide space is much more useful for variety of thing than vertical.

Costco member should consider buying it from Costco $999 - https://www.costco.com/Dell-U3818...72388.html

4 years warranty and better customer service. I have a feeling there will be a discount on this next month or so. I'm waiting on the LG version to dip below $1000.

Both are same model, not sure why Newegg listed as 5ms and Costco is 8ms.

Pretty sure he is talking about this one: http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-43UD79-B-4k-uhd-led-monitor
I was considering this as well but bought a dell 3417 instead. This LG has been as cheap as 400$ from Costco if memory serves.
LG seems like a solid choice but I really wanted the kvm built into the Dell.

Thanks for the movie quote but slightly higher resolution with 10% (roughly) less physical space equals smaller objects/text/etcetera. I work with documents, websites, and programming. I want as much vertical space as possible and that means both the physical dimension and the virtual resolution need to expand.

If you took a minute to look at the products I was comparing and think about a use case beyond gaming you would have easily understood that and saved yourself from making an asinine comment.

I can fit three actual physical size legal documents side-by-side with room for Word's menu bar on my current monitor (I have 15.68" of vertical, a legal document is only 14" leaving me 1.68" for menu/scrollbar). This LG monitor would allow for a forth but it would have smaller text and graphics due to it's smaller vertical dimension (and yes I account for scaling the text to fit the additional vertical resolution). I can tell most of the people responding only ever use their PCs for gaming or the only basis of comparison they have is some 27" monitor with the same physical vertical height or less. You guys just don't get it.
