    "The monitor utilises a Quad HD resolution display (with 3440x1440 pixels)"

    How is 3440x1440 in any way 4 times 1980x1080? Is it me or is this another case of marketing department BS?

    3440x1440 = 4,953,600
    1980x1080 = 2,138,400

    2.31x Regular HD.
    That's not a bad margin of error for a marketing department.

    Actually it's better than QHD. HD is only 720p remember, and QHD is 2560x1440. This isn't big enough to be the next category, so it's still QHD.

    For reference, this is what Wikipedia says:

    QHD (Quad HD), also sometimes advertised as WQHD[29] due to its widescreen shape, or 1440p,[30] is a display resolution of 2560x1440 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has four times as many pixels as the 720p HDTV video standard, hence the name.

    It is just multiple marketing efforts getting a bit twisted around each other. HD is 1280x720, QHD is 2560x1440 i.e. four times HD. Full HD is 1920x1080 and Ultra HD is four times full HD i.e. 3840x2160. Ultra HD is not the same as 4K DCI while we're at it.

    This isn't Quad High Definition though, I think it should be called Wide Quad High Definition or WQHD but apparently QHD is already short for Quad Wide High Definition... despite HD not being called wide and the QHD being no wider than HD.

    I hate marketing.

    A curved monitor makes a hell of lot more sense to me than does a curved television. Colour me interested!

    Incorrect. HD is 1280x720 which equals to 921600, thus making this display over 5 times HD
