This is a top-quality monitor with a maximum real estate that would work for gamers, but we suspect it will find its way into business use where 1080p resolution is all you need.
- Widescreen does not begin to describe it
- Best if used as two 16:9 monitors in one
- Can hook up two computers (Windows or macOS or both)
- HDR is above average when you have content
- QLED gives 1080p a great image
- Gaming performance pre-sets
- Increasing number of games support 32:9
- Very good colour and pre-sets – close enough for professional use
- Vertical resolution is still 1080p
- PC video card needs to support 3840 x 1080 (or you can get motion tearing)
- Bloody big – need a big, deep desk
If money is no object get one! I note that it is being offered at some computer stores at under $2,000 – bag a bargain, buy two!
It deserves 5 out of 5 for sheer technology and usefulness but being the first of its kind means it is expensive.
- Overall: 4.2 out of 5
- Features: 4 out of 5 – does what it promises
- Value for Money: 3 out of 5 – you can buy two curved 27” Samsung G70 for under $1,000
- Performance: 5 out of 5 – All good gaming specs
- Ease of Use: 5 out of 5 – Very easy to set up but you need a good graphics card
- Design: 4 out of 5 – very distinctive but very deep footprint
