When 27” isn’t enough
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.
