I've thought about dual screens, but it's less necessary with larger monitors than it used to be in the CRT days (although it still has a lot of benefits depending on your usage). I don't think I have enough desk space for two monitors though, and I'm sure as hell not buying two of this monitor. :lol

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

I'd find it distracting too. I'd probably permanently have scifi running on one monitor, with the internet permanently open on the other. :lol

It was when he had one design on 2 screens. I didn't like it.

Ah yeah, I wouldn't want anything spanning across multiple monitors. I'd rather have one thing on each monitor so I didn't need to constantly switch between two windows.

First snowfall here last night.  Maybe 1/2 an inch.  Didn't stick to the roads, just the lawns and my deck.  Winter is coming.  Except for Blob.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Last night was the first night below freezing. I actually wore a jacket to work today. However, Thursday and Friday it will be in the 60s.  It should be a beautiful autumn day for Thanksgiving.

Hey, Blob

What do you think of the color accuracy of a monitor like this one. I bought one earlier this summer. I love the real estate and everything seem terrific to me, but I'm no expert and without having it calibrated, I'm unsure if I should do any color work on my family photos. Do you think that most of these products are close enough that if I do a little color correcting in Photoshop that the prints will look fine?

By the way, talk about not missing dual monitors anymore!  :)

Yeah, that thing is basically a dual monitor all by itself! :metal I'm personally not a fan of the current curved trend though, and I hope that doesn't catch on.

On paper it looks capable enough, I just have no idea how accurate the colours would be out of the box, since it doesn't appear to be targeted to high end image editing. For editing family photos I'm sure it's just fine though, but since it's not calibrated and isn't using a wider gamut, it may take a bit of trial and error to get your prints looking exactly how you see them on screen.

I'm not a fan of the curved trend for a living room televisions, for sure. But this thing on my desktop, being closer to my face, is really comfortable...and playing FPS games is a real treat!

I have less problem with it for an individual screen, but for multiple people like a living room, it makes no sense to me (it makes no sense to me either way, but it makes less sense).

My new monitor will only be 24", so nowhere near as big as your beast of a monitor, but even that will be a huge upgrade in size for me from my current 17" CRT. To me 24" is the sweet spot for computer monitors. Beyond that, and the input lag and refresh often start to suffer, and I'd rather have a smaller screen with better specs.

One of my favorite Youtubers is Barnacules Nerdgasm. This is his setup. Over the weekend he replaced the tri-monitors with 3 50" 4K Samsung screens. It looks sick.

Meh. I consider size a downside to actual quality on LCDs. Even at those narrow viewing angles the colours are becoming washed out.

I wouldn't be able to tolerate the space between each display creating two giant black lines breaking up the image in a setup like that. I'd rather just have one screen.

You'd probably get used to it, but yeah, that would bug me too. Seems like a total waste just for gaming too.

And aren't you in my same time zone? Why are you always up at the same ungodly hours I am? :lol
