Too wide. I'd rather have multiple monitors so I could keep one front and center and angle the other one towards me. To me having a monitor so wide would make things towards the sides be at too wide of an angle. It would be awkward and uncomfortable to view.

>>32005139 It's not the viewport, it's the physical size of the monitor that makes the biggest difference. The wider it is the more uncomfortable it gets for me. 4:3 is not needed, but I could never use 16:9 or higher ratio. I have one of those at work and it's very nasty.

16:10 seems to be the sweet spot for single monitor widescreen, 16:9 seems wasteful, I never do anything in the edges of the screen and miss the vertical pixels. I could see it being useful if I watched a lot of HD TV. 21:9 is something entirely different. It is basically like having two 19" 5:4 monitors without bevels right next to each other, it is wide enough that you can split whatever you're doing however you'd like. I multitask a lot so this is attractive to me.

>>32008005 No. Strobing the same pixel with the same information does not make it 600FPS. When an LCD advertizes 120Hz, it literally is outputting 120 unique frames. A 600Hz plasma is only outputting 60 unique frames. It strobes the pixel 10 times to minimize the appearance of flicker
