When 27” isn’t enough

The Australian - The Deal - - First up -

Twenty-nine-inch ul­tra-wide dis­plays have landed at a price that puts them in reach of any­one. Acer, Dell, Asus, LG, AOC and oth­ers all have op­tions. Most of these at­trac­tive dis­plays sup­port an as­pect ra­tio of 21:9 mean­ing you can watch a wide-screen movie in 16:9 and still be read­ing your email in the re­main­ing space. Res­o­lu­tions are typ­i­cally 2560 x 1080 with IPS pan­els and LED back­lights. They all come with many con­nec­tion op­tions with most also hav­ing USB3.0 hubs. Prices range from $550 to $900. At the ex­treme end of the size spec­trum is the stun­ning Dell Ul­traSharp 32” Ul­tra HD dis­play that does 16:9 at 3840 x 2160 res­o­lu­tion but at $3000 you would need to mort­gage the house. Per­son­ally I’d rather buy a new iMac 27” at that price.
