I am not a medical professional, however it looks like you won't have any neck problems because you will be exercising it a lot if you buy this monitor...

I think all this has is a 45 day return policy.. I'd be very hesitant to spend $900+ on something that could shit the bed and leave me SOL within 2 months.


That sounds awful. You should suggest Dell Display Manager [dell.com], which allows you to "snap" windows to predefined spots on the monitor (it also helps facilitate some of the KVM functionality on this 49" ultrawide).

Mice have acceleration, one quick flick will get you from one side to the other. Also, this is essentially two 24" or 27" 16:10 wide screens (2x 2560x1440 resolution) in one big display. Big benefit is that you don't have the split in the middle so you can play a game ultra-widescreen or have odd numbers of windows side by side across the full width without it being split in the middle.

My boss has this monitor. I personally hate it or at least I hate the way he has it setup. He just has a bunch of windows floating on the desktop. Personally I rather have 3-4 monitors where it'll snap in place and take up the whole screen.

There might be drivers to support "framing" from Dell where the OS recognizes the monitor as specific zones. There are third party apps as well that perform the same function.

If this is anything like the 34" you can actually input multiple sources from the same computer, given that it has multiple outputs, and at a single pixel division (no bezels) you can have 2 to 4 "monitors" on the one device. They would all act as separate desktops, or your can span.

I a multiple monitor manager to create 'zones' where windows snap, so my 32 inch 1440p has a large zone that's 2/3 of the monitor on the left, and the remainder is split into a pair of 1/6 and 1/6 zones stacked on top of each other, and I have a 22 inch 1080p monitor vertical that's split in half with both halves on top of each other.

I was just thinking about how bad it would be to drag the mouse across your mouse pad 3-4 times and still not be all the way to the edge of the screen. These kinds of monitors are probably great for displaying dashboards that auto-update...if you have lots of columns in a single report and want to see a lot of data at once...

I don't see a practical use for it compared to my dual 24" monitors at work.

I own the U3415W and believe it's too large. I couldn't imagine using this behemoth. For me, 27 inches is the ideal monitor size. The monitor itself is exceptional if this is your thing.
From what I'm reading this is actually the equivalent of 2 27 in monitors side by side. So unless you don't like the width, the height should be no difference then normal. I just don't have that much money to spend but I run 2 side by side 27 in monitors anyway.

Microsoft recently released the open-source Fancy Zones Powertoy [github.com] which does something similar, if you would rather not download something from Dell.

This makes a lot of sense now. One of the many reasons I spend a good bit of time having to pivot months by product for him. I'm thinking how the flying **** can you see 250+ columns. This makes so much more sense.
