I'm mostly writing this post for @Raijin as a followup to our off-topic chat in another thread, but I figured I'd share it here incase anyone else wanted to chip in or argue against it. As I explained in the other thread, I had been running a 27-inch 4k monitor (previously 3 monitor setup with 21 inch Sonys) on my gaming PC for about a year before I "side-graded" to an LG 34UM95-P. Obviously the Ultrawide monitor runs at a lower resolution (3440x1440) when compared to a 4k/UHD monitor (3840x2160), but I have found the 21:9 aspect ratio to be extremely pleasant for both productivity and gaming. As you can see in this screenshot, you can easily have two windows open side by side without having anything scrunched or cramped: This is extremely handy if you're writing a document and need to reference another site/paper, or if you're working on code and want to have multiple files open (and visible) at the same time. For gaming, the Ultrawide aspect ratio allows you to see more of the left/right of a game at the same time. This is especially advantageous in games like League of Legends where you're locked in to a specific zoom, allowing you to see more of the map at any given time then someone playing on a regular widescreen setup. The drawbacks of an Ultrawide monitor are that some games, like Life is Strange, can't handle the aspect ratio so you end up with black bars on the left/right sides of the screen. I suppose another problem would be if you're a streamer, you can basically guarantee that non of your viewers are going to be running at 3440x1440, so that might make them unhappy. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend an Ultrawide monitor over a 4k monitor if you're interested in productivity as well as gaming. If you're just gaming, you're probably going to want to stick with the 4k since the advantages for you aren't as apparent. To address @Raijin's question about curved monitors, I like the idea, but if you plan on running multiple monitors (all Ultrawide or even just Ultrawide as the primary monitor) I think it might be difficult to line up the monitors in a visually pleasing manner. If anyone has any questions or comments or whats to know anything specific about running Ultrawide, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.
