    Reviews - AOC Q2963PM 29in UltraWide IPS LED Monitor

    It's like having two monitors side-by-side.

    Re: Reviews - AOC Q2963PM 29in UltraWide IPS LED Monitor

    I've got a Dell UltraSharp U2913WM and love it to bits; the aspect ratio is great for gaming and it doesn't kill my GPU. Coupled with the fact the panel is a beauty it's all good. I still have another Dell 24" in portrait to one side, which does help with the negatives of the relative lack of height.

    I totally understand that it's not for everyone but the aspect ratio it's nigh on perfect for me.

    Would be interested to see this aspect ratio at a higher resolution and screen size, though it'd be a bit unwieldy for the average desk I suspect...

    What would be nice is something in the OSD that told the monitor to go into "pretend your 2 completely mechanically separate monitors" mode (unless I misunderstood and this is doable). That would be quite a "cute" feature for things like directx overlay (if you didn't want the super wide screen effect)

    You can do that in the dell software I believe; not sure about this screen though.

    Nice to see something breaking the 1920x1080 mould, but this is too wide to be useful for me.

    Can see some businesses might give it out to users where they don't want the endless pain of supporting the PITA that is dual monitors though.

    It is a great idea, but the price over 2 24" displays does make sense to choose this. But a better option would be to have it at 2560 x 1200 resolution.

    As far as I'm aware they were first to market with that aspect ratio.

    I bought one of these! It arrived today, am using it now. It's absolutely amazing, wish I treated myself sooner. I also got it for a really great deal for just £250 on Amazon. But it's gone back up now, it's at about 310 but it changes regularly. If you are interested, keep looking for it at a good price and then get it. You won't regret it! It's amazing for films, work, and web. Going to try gaming now, although I can already tell by just scrolling around the web page, the performance of this seems better already.
