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.

Pros

  • 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

Cons

  • 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

Price

$2499.95

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!

Rating

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
