Pros: Beautiful picture quality and colors. Great for gaming, as long as games support the awkward resolution. Photoshop is nice on it - plenty of room for work space on one side, and tools on another. No noticeable motion blur on FPS gaming. Bought this as an alternative to a multi-monitor setup. Definitely a step up from my old Samsung 27" LED monitor, visually.
Cons: You do seem to lose some vertical work space, as it's about 3 inches smaller, vertically, than my old 27" monitor. Awkward resolution, so I'm hoping application support doesn't eventually die, as these ultra-wide monitors don't seem to be too popular.
Other Thoughts: I've been wanting to get one of these ultra-wide monitors for a couple years now. Now that the prices are half of what they were, I finally decided to pull the trigger. Glad I did. If you're looking for a triple monitor setup with this as your center monitor and 2 16:9 monitors, it seems that the 21.5" IPS monitors from LG match the vertical size the closest (bezel included, without stand), if you're looking for cosmetic continuity.READ FULL REVIEW
