Wow

This thing is just crazy, anyone ever had a chance to use one?

I'm a bit so-so about buying this thing... I really want it though. So I might buy two.

It's not the size that matters... it's how you have sex with it that counts.

srsly tho, that just seems a bit silly. Now, if it was closer to $100...

True the price is pretty steep and from what I've gathered the craftsmanship is quite terrible. I'm already looking at other 21:9's.

Ever since the days of fat, heavy 1600x1200 pixel glass-screen CRT monitors, I have been upset each time I have had to use anything that is less than 1200 pixels tall. Web sites scroll up and down a whole lot more than they scroll left and right. I get more web site in view depending on how tall the screen is, not so much wide.

My current screen is a 27" 1920x1200 bought in 2008, making it good for both the typical HD stuff and some additional height when I'm not viewing a video. 1920 is even wide enough for two web sites side by side without the need of a second monitor, which can be important for important decision making. I still use an old CRT monitor for a second monitor, placed on a lower shelf, but only so that I can drag-and-drop an educational video or cartoon or something for my little 2-year-old. Glass screens are mostly 2-year-old proof.

The price is actually decent for the model you are reviewing if you ask me. New sizes or in this case, newer form factors will cost more than traditional.

I hope to someday have a 4K resolution TV, since the camera I just picked up can shoot at the resolution. Aside of my computer monitor, which isn't really a television, I do not have a non-CRT television. My current television, which is nearly never watched, is a very large, extremely heavy glass screen.

This means I'll be going from my current 240x320 interlacing screen to a 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160. It'll be a while though before I make the move.

About a week after you make the move, you won't notice the difference.
