I've seen one in the flesh and would much prefer dual 1920 x 1200 (3840 x 1200) monitors over a single 2560 x 1080.
In fact, I currently use dual 1600 x 1200 Dells and would not even consider a trade for my old monitors for the 29" new!
BTW, here is a link that worked for me:
I realized that too, so what I did, was to get two of these:
it has only 9 mm bezel, and looks really great.
Thanks for correcting my link too
Sure, Jim - don't know whats going on on my laptop at teh moment....
Well, I got them up and running, and I love them.
It was a bid hard to align them so that they would stand exactly next to each other, so I made a sort af a backplane for them using the VESA mount holes, using a thin plate of 6mm plywood with a wooden fillet at the top and the button to stabilise the plate, which is only 6 mm thick (to keep the weight down).
I made a small illustration, in case anybody else would like to make a simillar one.
I did paint he wood in the same color as the monitors, but for the purpose of illustration, I kept it "wood"
The only problem I could see in this kind of setup, would be if the monitor stands are not exactly the same hight, but i my case is was perfect.
Photoshop (and any other hi-res still image work), remote screen viewing, some other uses benefit a great deal working with a single hi-res monitor vs. duals or triples - at least for me personally. Editing - not so much due to UI being multi-windowed and easily spread over multiple monitors.
That said, if I were to get a single hi-res monitor, I'd consider a 2560x1200 27" one. HP sells one for about $650 I think. More pixels for about the same price.
If I worked a lot on photoshop, I would probably also consider one big 27" on one mackine.
Even with photoshop I think 2 monitors are great.
On a single monitor you have to keep most of the toolbars closed or docked. So to access them you have to click them and expand them. And after that if you want your screenspace back you have to click and close or dock them back.
And also if you work with many layers - you have to scroll up and down to see the layers list.
But with 2 monitors you can have one monitor without most of the tools and on the second monitor you can keep all the tools you need completely expanded. You can have a huge layer list from top to bottom and wide enough. And this second monitor can be a super cheap one if you want - because it will be used only for the tools.
And as I mentioned in another thread, I believe using 2 monitors leads to better performance (with Nvidia single monitor check) compared to a single higher resolution one.
You are right Sebastian, I will try out utilizing the second monitor in PS as well :)
