    I have an ultrawide monitor and it's not wide enough to accommodate Bluebeam Revu and AutoCAD on screen. I can definitely use this super ultra wide space without creative thinking.

    Really good for flightsims/racingsims being able to see more of the cockpit/surroundings. Almost like triple screens without the hassle.

    Hi Guys, In case you are wondering if you want to buy this one please be advised that currently Nvidia is not supporting Shadowplay on this aspect ratio. I found it hard way 🙁

    Here is a link to official Nvidia customer care statement:

    https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1037677/geforce-experience/shadowplay-32-9-aspect-ratio/2

    I just bought this 49" Samsung monitor and I am highly disappointing by Nvidia team that I won't be able to continue using Shadowplay. Hearing from Nvidia representative that is used to work but doesn't now because currently 32:9 aspect ratio is chosen not to be supported makes me regret chosing Nvidia products and I am talking here about 4 GTX 1080 Ti's. So fogive me a grain of salt but maybe instead of saying IT JUST WORKS Jensen should start saying IT USED TO WORK? How about that?

    split it in half, one half for you consol and the other for your pc (If you don't have a consol then stream and if you don't do that either then this monitor isn't for u lmao)

    because u will must be at bigger distance and can watch youtube and other videos natively without downscaled blurred resolution of 1440p or 4k I would say its a win in a way . Main complain is GPU dispersion … dang it …

    I have this monitor and I have to say that it's completely worth it if you need more screen to work with, I use premier pro and I can see my hole timeline in one screen and for gaming, you can't go back after using it.

    I thought that the monitor was really good and looked super nice and well developed and it is really supposed to be two monitors that you can handle at once

    Thanks, this was a great review (as in, telling me everything I need to know before I make a decision).
    Interested more for the productivity potential, but that 1080 res comparison has me wondering what else is out.. I only drop over a grand on a monitor once in 10 years so might as well see about getting more PPCM
