    not a fan of this one.
    Each piece of software would need custom what-cha-ma-call-its for any sort of meaningful use of the 2nd screen.

    Really need more info in this review on how the second screen can be used. Also missing the second screen from the tests of the screen brightness etc.

    Indeed, it being the centrepeice and the WFH angle in the subtitle of the view, you'd expect it to be covered.

    As for customisation, I reckon a lot of problems could be worked out with PowerToys and FancyZones. Kinda handy to be able to snap things to fit presized windows on a secondary monitor.

    Awesome!!
    I love insanely gimmicky stuff like this, as it often turns out to be pretty good actually!

    They stop spending, and after a while of companies restocking, the rest of us can finally buy the graphics cards we should have had ages ago... and hopefully at the prices initially advertised, too!!

    Naw, you're just not trying hard enough, then!!

    I still use a Logitech G19 keyboard for several reasons, but the biggest by far is that little LCD screen up top - It's so bloody useful, especially in games like Elite with dedicated and comprehensive apps. I've spent many many hours messing around with G19 applets and it's been pretty indispensable.

    I'm always surprised at how many game devs do still provide an applet.
    By comparison, a full width screen like this would actually make some games (Star Citizen, I'm looking at you) much more playable. It also wouldn't take much to code in the option (because having the choice always wins) to move certain game HUD/instrumentation/display elements to the second screen, like flight sims do. RPGs could use it for the inventory, maybe the rucksack or something.
    Outside of that, there are many occasions when working on my office laptop that I could make use of this, either for extended display of multiple windows, media player, or even watching security cams while working.

    I certainly hope this becomes more widespread.
