    Here here, bring back the 4x3/5x4 monitors.

    Most content creation is portrait.

    so buy a screen with rotation.... simples

    As a professional who eizo is likely aiming this product at all I can say is.... why... it has no real benefit over a dual screen (or ultrawide) setup which you can likely get for less. Eizo have never been known for being cheap.

    Having the IDE on a single monitor is nice, and IDEs really like 1920 wide monitors what with all the tool panels on the side.

    However it's nice to see a long vertical section of code too, this monitor would allow that even with an IDE with tool panels, console, etc open (IntelliJ can get quite cramped once you've got your project explorer and find/changes/etc panel open.

    But the price has to be right. Sadly employers can cheap out when it comes to monitors (and keyboards, mice, etc) that their employees use for many hours each day.

    So, make this a 2560x2560 monitor, 30" corner to corner and I'll think about it.

    Unless you get two.

    Show my any other monitor on the market with a 1920 pixel vertical resolution.... you'll be up in to the stratispheric realms of 4k, and do you really need that horizontal rez? Or pixel pitch?

    Working on 1280x1024 I used to yearn for extra width. Now I'm at 1080p I have plenty of width but yearn for extra depth. Sure, I could get two 1080p monitors in portrait, but then you've got bezel lines and stuff. it's likely to be a niche product, but I can see some benefits to a 1920 square monitor.

    I could see this working with my video editing, but my 1440p monitor works just fine.

    Interestingly its the same number of pixels as a 1440p monitor.

    I do CAD (I've used solidworks which they've got in the examples for CAD) and graphics. In just about every program I use the menus are primarily on the side, all this screen is doing is extending the distance I have to move my mouse/pen etc vertically. Just look at the extra distance in the photoshop image for the main icon menu, that's basically 50% again vertically, not to mention you'd be losing the widths of a graphic tablet, they're all widescreen now.

    It might be nice for coding, can't see it personally, but it would still likely be cheaper buying 2 screens for portrait instead, Eizo has NEVER been cheap and this is a 'custom' size/shape, I'd even bet you could grab an IPS based dell 4k for less than this screen, let alone the 2.5k screens.

    Actually vacuum tubes are brilliant for high quality audio, but it's cheaper to use modern transistors instead.

    Would be nice when coding, plenty lines of code on a single page and Visual Studio would work nicely on it. For gaming however, wider the better. Webpages would also be better
