  1. Dell is not quite finished with the high-resolution monitor releases it seems. Plans for a new 21:9 aspect ratio display have been discovered, reported to be 34 inches in size and packing a resolution of 3440 x 1440; 40% fewer...

    DELL UltraSharp UP2414Q is the only monitor to shake the market out of apathy, to finally match the quality of Macbook Pro screens for desktop computers.

    Myself, I alternate between DELL U3014 on my desktop and 15" Macbook Pro Retina, and the difference in quality is so noticeable, I start using the latter more and more, it's quite an eye-candy.

    UP2414Q is what all Windows users are going to love, and I'm looking forward to it...
  3. This is a 34 " monitor... and has twice the pixels as the 24" model you keep talking about.


    Secondly, what does a MacBook have to do with DELL monitors.. ?

    Yep. In my experience, web browsing on the new 15" Macbook pro while sitting on a couch is more joyful than doing the same on 30" DELL U3014 while sitting at the desk, no matter how comfy your chair might be (mine is the best also, the latest Herman Miller Aeron).

    It's down to how relaxing it is on your back + on your eyes at the same time. And your eyes can't relax any more than with a retina display. If DELL makes that new model, things may change though...

    Meh I rarely touch my couch, mostly in the gaming room behind my desk. A 30" has much greater advantage, although picture quality on lower sized monitors is usually better. There are more pixels to cover on a larger screen.

    I don't know about these 21:9 monitors. I can't help but think of them as the poor mans Eyefinity. lol

    Make sure the GPU/Hardware can handle the max VIS = visual image size of this monitor. Right now I am on dual mounted monitors 23" true edge to edge LED/LCD HD 46-inch. Pricey 34-inch though but 4K where most of us on 1920 x 1080P still. 4K prices will drop in a few years.

    Really? so you're telling me you would rather have 3 separate screens that are harder for your computer to run and have big black spaces between them (bezel) and costs 3 times as much? No thank you, I will take a single display that is barely harder to run than a standard single monitor yet has a much wider screen.
  11. This dell appears to be a repackaged LG34UM95 (different frame with the same screen) , hopefully dell offers a better stand (height adjustable) and frame otherwise I'll be getting the original LG...
