I prefer multiple vs ultra wide.
I see the benefit of being able to keep two windows open side-by-side. However I'd prolly buy it for the immersive gaming experience.
Yes, that is the point. A lot of screen space. I have always used multiple screens, but the the 34" Dell looks might fine and has excellent calibration.
Play is a different story. But for work I want at least one extra for comms.
@GoodEnoughGear . Any particular reason you prefer multiple? I am using it for design work
I do a lot of remote collaboration, and I prefer to have whatever's happening from a UC perspective on a separate screen. I'll keep mail on that screen, too - usually the laptop screen. I could probably use an ultra-wide for certain stuff that needs the real estate.
But I'd still want at least one secondary. Screen snapping is OK, but I like a full-screen experience. Maybe a product of my age?
Going to go with 2x 24" UltraSharps myself. I imagine 30" something UHD would be good for CAD and design.
I am still getting used to it, but I just swapped from dual 24" 16:10 monitors to a single ultrawide 35" I like that I have more airspace now that my overall screen space is smaller and I don't feel like I have lost too much from a productivity standpoint. I love it for gaming and entertainment, but do miss a secondary screen when in fullscreen mode. I may get a smaller 22 or 23" to mount above the ultrawide.
one 34 ultrawide and normal 27 inch for me.
I have an ultrawide 29", great for work and gaming. School has 49" super ultra wides at the library, those are real nice for work.
In my case I need at least two physical monitors, RDP split screen doesn't really work.
I'd rather have multiple vertical 16:10 or even 4:3 monitors for productivity. And for productivity resolution matters a lot IMO.
I use an HP 32" 4k and the MBP retina, the big arranged above the little. By "ultrawide", do you mean just a big monitor (and 2k/4k resolution), or 21:9 aspect ratio (which is what I'd call "ultrawide").
After going 5K I went back to the solo screen lifestyle.
I can't even stand 4K, text is just to small and I don't see the point in scaling. 1440p is just right.
For me it's not so much about the size…I can't stand to see the pixels. Before the 200+ ppi screens, I used an Acer 1920x1200 24" that was dense enough you wouldn't see'em.
@Syzygy I am referring to the 21:9 aspect ratio as ultrawide.
Separate names with a comma.
