    Exactly also a 21:9 much better when it comes to do in terms of productivity to gaming, because to me this looks like they just cut a 4K monitor in half and kept the bottom half for sale.

    If the monitor is set 30" or more from the viewer this should a none issue as it will fall into the peripheral very well and increase immersion.

    The arguments about the resolution are a bit of tech snobbery in my opinion. 1080 based monitors are the most commonly used, can easily be driven with mid range cards and are the base resolution all PC gaming is optimized for by developers. In this specific case you have the equivalent of a dual 1080P monitor setup in a single monitor with no bevel. Can actually see a lot of good use for this setup. For gaming you can get the most immersive experience possible without a VR setup and only need a 570 or 580 to drive it.

    The price is a bit steep still in my opinion, however will give them some slack as this is a first of it's kind panel. I mean this kind of sizing and aspect ratio, quantum dot, HDR and 144hz? Thats a lot of tech in this beast.

    The wife is holding me back from buying one.

    Not keen on that vertical resolution. I just bought Acer's 38" XR2 ultrawide (3840x1600) and it's nothing short of stunning.

    Hmm takes up to much place it would be better to switch entirely to VR if so.

    Re: Samsung launches the world's largest QLED gaming monitor

    I've been looking at the XR2, how does it perform?

    Incredible. I use it for Flight Simulator and it's probably the best £1k I've dropped in a lot of years, on anything.

    Re: Samsung launches the world's largest QLED gaming monitor

    A particular attraction of the new breed of QLED TVs and monitors are their 'best of both worlds' approach which blends QD (Quantum Dot) technology with OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology. Samsung has its own QLED technology overview pages available for you to read further.
    What are you on about? This is nothing to do with OLED or any other self-emitting display technology. It's a plain old LCD.

    Quantum dots are mildly interesting, they're an alternative way of creating a wider colour gamut instead of the usual method of changing the light source. They're not of much interest to computers though, until the majority of problems and web pages become colour aware a wide gamut display will result in wrong colours most of the time and you'll just be using it in sRGB mode.

    The HDR is also likely to be less than interesting. There's no mention of dimming zones and a dimmable backlight is the only way you can create an actual increase in dynamic range on an LCD (in more familiar terminology, higher contrast). Well, there is the ability to change brightness between scenes but that's been available for years in the form of dynamic contrast. In terms of new technology, it's likely just the ability to accept HDR input.

    At least HDR video is in a different colour space, so it might encourage a few more programs to actually become colour aware.
