This is the cheapest I have seen this tv/monitor. The standard monitor without the included tv tuner is more expensive than this. The 2560*1080 21:9 aspect ratio should be great for playing pc games that have support.

Been thinking about getting an ultra wide for split screen display as oppose to two monitors. Does anyone have any real world experience of using a monitor like this?

We have these on our office across the floor and will in chesegrater too when we move

Stop vote Cooled people if you don't understand what this is...... It's a 21.9 ultrawide screen not a 16.9

Yep not sure of why all the negativity, think this is a good price for the type of monitor it is. I can only guess your reasoning is right stormtrooper.

At a guess, because its aspect ratio means that the HEIGHT of the screen is no better than for a 23 inch 16:9 monitor. So unless you are a games player and have games "that have support." it offers very little benefit.
It may well be a good price - but for most people it offers no advantage for the extra money.

It does, of course, depend on what you want to use it for (and especially things like how close you put it and how good your eyesight is). I'd say that if you usually use a monitor within arm's reach - a single, ultrawide, monitor is worth considering. If you have them at greater distance, multiple, "lower" resolution monitors are probably better. I use both approaches - I have an ultrawide at my writing desk, where I spend a lot of time writing technical papers and reports, and multiple HD monitors in my workshop, as I need the benches clear for other things and thus they have to be further away. It's basic eyechart stuff - there's no point in having greater screen resolution than your own eyes can resolve at the distance.

I have my current monitor at arms length, it's a nice 1600x1200 IPS. It is however in the reading zone that I've recently started wearing glasses for. I could ideally do with 3 screens and was thinking that splitting a UW one with my current might be the best option, no least because I don't think my 4850 card is going drive 3 separate monitors.
