You would be better off saving a bucketload of cash and just put 2 monitors side by side.

I would, but for movies and gaming, I wouldn't be able to stand the gap!

For this money you might aswel buy a 1080p 40-50inch TV

Not for a monitor you wouldn't. This may not be for everyone, but this is the cheapest it's been.

This looks amazing.. if only it had a curve

Umm what movies do you have that are higher then 1080p??? Ok understand for games kind off (a bit wide) I would personally rather buy a 27" ips screen with a higher resolution in hight and width... not just width like this screen.

Buy a 42 inch HD TV and plug the into your PC

What a rip off you can buy a decent 50" TV and connect PC to it using HDMI for this sort of price.

This seems dear to me. You'd think that a single 29" unit would cost less than, say, two high-spec 19" ones (or bigger) but in fact it costs a lot more. Maybe it's so expensive as it won't be a 'high volume seller' (?). Whatever, not voted either way as I've no idea what the 'non-hot deal' price is.

Lol some people just don't understand, yet comment anyway.

That is just too wide. Watch this without moving/turning your head from side to side.

I think you are better off with some nice 27'' 2560x1440 or 2500x1600 IPS screen.

Can you actually see the entire screen? When I try I can feel that my eyes are going separate ways which hurts.
For me that screen has wider angle than my eyes can see, ok for movies but when gaming and being about 1 feet away from the screen I would only see narrowed part of the screen.
I guess it depends on your taste but i prefer my higher pixel density(£370 Hazro HZ27WC) rather than wider screen.
But for the price is can get some heat.

For those who are uninformed, but feel the need to comment on something they know jack about ...

This monitor has over 2.7 million pixels, and a 1080p TV has just over 2 million pixels. This means that this monitor can show 35% more detail than a 1080p TV. Add to this, that when on a PC you traditionally sit closer to the screen than you do when watching TV, so the lack of pixels becomes quite noticeable.

Voted hot as its a great deal for a great monitor - but you will need a beast of a PC to get the best out of it.

Agreed, 3.68 megapixels of ips loveliness.

for those banging on about getting a 47 / 50 inch tv that will do the same thing but bigger . your missing the point ..... most of which has been covered already , but the other thing is this is a MONITOR not a tv......

and as such it have MUCH better input lag than a tv ... and in fps online you will get creamed with high input lag . my 47in lg looks the business for films / console single gaming , but its pants for online games.

and that is a great talking point when someone sees it

only real negative is it only has 1 hdmi port

if your refering to it against other monitors than it is lacking abit .....but against a tv ( as others have mentioned ) it wins hands down

Wow, one hell of a deal. I paid £460 for my Hazro HZ27WD :O

Those who don't know the difference between IPS and TN, or the different types of IPS panel, or a monitor and a TV, save yourself the embarrassment and just hit the back button.

According to TFT Central this has a AH-IPS panel, which is the latest type of 2011 IPS panel with "improved colour accuracy, increased resolution and PPI, and greater light transmission for lower power consumption". I'm not sure whether or not it's better than H-IPS though, which is used in the monitors that use the LG Apple Cinema Display panel. I doubt it is if I'm being honest...

Sit further away then.

That's the glitchy bit where dragon is hidden under the snow

^ That looks awesome ^
I would love to play Project Cars / Civilization V / Guild Wars 2 with this monitor.

I've actually started to drool, this is so much WANT.

I hate everything about the aspect ratio of these new monitors. Still, heat for first deal I've seen with them...

I'd love a wide monitor like that, but what's stopping me hovering over the 'buy now' button is the 1080 vertical.
My current monitor is 1200 and I'd hate to lose that height.
A 1200x2820 monitor would be spot-on.

BTW - I have a Hazro. They look absolutely fantastic, but they had a couple of bugs they could never completely solve, so they ceased trading and reopened without honouring previous warranties (same staff, location and similar name). Seemed underhand to me - more what I'd expect from a double-glazing company!
I wouldn't buy again for that reason.

You never played on eyefinity triple monitors?? I have that and would never be able to go back to one screen.

I'm agreed that it's too wide and the lack of vertical height doesn't help. I'm currently using a 27" 2560x1440 display I got for £330 on ebay (all the bells and whistles so not a bad price). Greater resolution for less money, I'd buy another 27" over this any day.

Whilst your monitor was a good price, you either get one year warranty or none, whereas these have a three year warranty on site, with a pixel perfect guarantee throughout the warranty. It's also swivel and height adjustable, and has USB 3.0 ports, so there's little extras like that too.

You would be better off with the Crossover 3020 MDP 2560 x 1600 uses the same IPS Panel as the Dell U3011...

Tons of them on Ebay... just waiting on the right time to buy....

Good Reviews..

Where did you read that? Hazro are still trading?

hazro.co.uk/

Although I don't think they are doing too well. Haven't seen many of their monitors stocked anywhere really. I'm guessing those Korean imports took a lot of their business.
I pretty much gather if anything happens to mine under warranty I'm more or less screwed. No monitors to replace it and they sure as hell won't refund!

I love the screen on mine, but in all honesty, I regret not waiting a few months til the Korean ones appeared. Would have saved me a few hundred, and I don't even use the extra features/connections on this WD model. It also has lint under the screen, and the glass is protruding around 1mm from the chassis. Also when sunlight hits it I can see the glass isn't clean underneath! Not good when I spent almost half a grand
