  • I love that LG is making these ultra-wide curved displays. My no1 program is AutoCAD, but I play games. I have three 27" 2560x1440 monitors, the bezels are huge, ~ 1.5" each side. I have them on a 3-head mount, with the side monitors' bezels tucked behind the middle. For AutoCAD I run the model window in the middle display, palettes/layer/properties windows fill the right, and PDFs etc on the left display for references. This way the bezels don't really bother me. Gaming though, very distracting. I would love a seamless display running full 7,680x1440. Hopefully for close to the $1380 I paid for the 3 displays (+$130 for mount) Sent from the iMore App
  • What are you using to push those screens? And what do you play? Because my brain just isn't connecting it with a Mac Pro Posted from the amazing whatever device I can afford because I'm a broke college kid.
  • I’ve been watching LG for a while. It looks like Apple aren’t going to get me to spend money with them so I think a 34UC97 might be the direction I look in instead. They look lovely, I’m confused as to why they can’t make a monitor that’ds good for all things.
    I don’t do anything serious on mine but I’ve had a 30” ACD for years and it seems fine for almost everything.
    Your deal sounds great!! I paid £1350 for one display.
