    Why is that?

    Touch sensitive OSD controls...I've learnt from my Samsung how **** they are and won't be buying another monitor with them on.

    Agreed - they are a compromise design that have value in certain cases (like touchscreens and hygiene-critical hard control surfaces) but it has been and still is a poorer user experience than real tactile switches. It's like some products manage to evade basic industrial design standards.

    Also in the "nope" category for me on this monitor - poor uniformity, poor colour accuracy (it would be nice if the review could try and calibrate to show how much the panel can deliver when calibrated, as even when calibrated not all panels come up to scratch), lack of adaptive sync, poor stand quality and finally it's aimed at productivity and has a USB hub but no KVM?

    16:9 is a great resolution for movies because that's very close to the ratio they're filmed in, but for actual work - which this monitor is clearly aimed at - vertical resolution is much more valuable than horizontal. Once you're used to 16:10 monitors you realise how short and squished 16:9 ones feel.

    What are the viewing angles like in practice please Peter? I'm coming from 2 smaller IPS panels, and this is a very attractive proposition, but I'm just curious as to what the drawbacks (if any) might be!

    Many thanks

    Didn't really check (they weren't installed for my own use so I can't check at the moment).

    They are being used for video production work (outputs of a switcher) and the man drawback as far as that was concerned was that you need to sit quite a way back to see the whole picture. If I go back to the site for follow up, I'll check for you.
