    3840x1080.... I would rather sacrifice a few HZ and have 1440p.

    Still, its unreasonably big, I have an ultra-wide now at 3440x1440 120hz and I find that it's pushing the limits of my viewing angles already, I would have to constantly turn my head to view everything on this monster.

    To wide, resolution too low, too expensive and it only supports HDR400 psuedo-HDR, which is largely pointless. I'll give this one a miss.

    I thoght the DPI was bad, until I realised it's basically 2x 24" 16:9 monitors in a single bezel. So we have a reference point for the size of the pixels.

    It's not great, and way overpriced but I would think it would be useful in some situations.

    I think it says 2x27" side by side which at 1080P is far too big in my book. I would say at 27" you want to be at 1440 or 1200 depending on your aspect ratio.

    As for head turning, well, I think that's the point. You'd be happy to do that with two monitors so if you're using this I suspect you'll adapt to using it that way. For gaming, I'm unconvinced. Seems to me if this much immersion is required you might be better off looking at VR.

    HDR400, they get to tick off a box that says this monitor supports HDR. I think HDR600 should be the minimum for being able to say you have HDR. I'm in the market for a monitor but not this one. I'll wait a few months to see if I can find a 1440p 144hz HDR600 freesync 2 or g-sync ultimate monitor. The g-sync tax has been coming down the last few months.
