I don't get this thing tbh.

 

4k is really not enough resolution for a display this size if you're sitting at "desk distance."

 

For "couch gaming" distance, there are TV's that will do as well (or better, since they aren't curved, the market spoke on curved TV's years ago) and cost less

 

The "multiview" thing is interesting, but the number of people who would actually use it that way is, I suspect, pretty small, and I'm pretty sure there are triple-decker desk mounts that could be used to achieve the same effect with three "normal" monitors for a lot less.

 

And for as much as it costs, lacking some of the other bells and whistles already mentioned in the Displays subforum thread is pretty heinous. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

This display just seems ridiculously excessive to me. How can anyone find using a screen that large comfortable when it's in the vertical position?! It's a cool tech demo and all, but I just don't see how it's practical, at least not for someone like me.

That dynamic window arrangement is really cool.   But the fact that it can't configure more than 1 hdmi input makes the feature near useless.

Sorry. I’m weak. I thought particle board, dowels, bad instructions and a wrecked marriage would be enough to hold the desk up. 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

I'm concerned about how clear text is on it with 80dpi. And the lack of multi HDMI is a deal breaker for me.

 

If you want a 55" monitor, just get the Samsung 55" QN95B at half the price.

I don't think this comparison makes sense at all.

 

Software evolved to demand and take advantage of CPU's with more cores. What technology advancement will change a basic issue of ergonomics?

That's not a good comparison at all. I have a 10 core CPU in my laptop, but the rest of the laptop is still a normal size. It's mainly the ridiculous size I don't understand with regards to the monitor above.

When that thing's in portrait mode, it looks like Fred Flintstone's rack of ribs. I was half-expecting the kitchen island to just spontaneously capsize.

I love how the mods will get viciously aggressive about merging build threads into the battlestations thread, or any of a number of other topics...but couldn't be bothered to merge this thread into the thread that predated it by over a week.

Not curved, so nowhere near as ergonomically friendly.  And anyone who thinks display curvature is an optional (or worse, fluff) feature--clearly is not using a 40"+ display as their main.

What if.....
 

-You had a standing-desk office, and this allowed you to comfortably view at an angle lower than your keyboard--and above it--comfortably?

New LTT videos get their own thread with no exceptions basically. I'm sure there have been other things that were discussed on the forum before LTT did a video about them. If anything it would have made more sense to merge the thread from Displays into this one.

So I'm trying to picture this. You're saying that the bottom of the monitor, mounted vertically, is lower than the desk/keyboard height and then the vertical midpoint of the display is about eye level? Wouldn't the desk itself and the other things on it block your view of the bottom portion of the display?

I agree.  Merge into this thread.  IDC.  Just doesn't make any sense having 2 threads with how aggressive they are about not having it elsewhere.

Imagine that instead of a full desk, or even a Varidesk riser, you have a KB/Mouse stand at the front edge of your sitting-height desk.  You position the monitor in vertical mode, and then lift the KB/M riser into a standing work position.  You can see past the KB/M stand, because it's only about 12" deep (or less).  So you can easily see down towards the actual desk (and thus the bottom of the portrait monitor). 

 

In gist, this means that from the standing position, you are eye-level with the middle of the monitor (aka the curved part).  So if you use the display as 3x 30" displays in portrait mode, you are eye-level with the middle display, glance up at the top display, and down at the bottom display.

 

This CAN be done from a seated position as well, but it requires a very shallow KB/M working surface (eg. something like a hospital tray table or something similar).  You'd have to mount the monitor to a floor stand so you could position the middle of the screen at eye level--something that cannot be done in portrait mode with the factory stand placed on the desk surface.

 

p.s.

Have you ever used one of those test-taking PC setups where the monitor was recessed into the desk you were sitting at?  You have to look down towards it in order to see the monitor.  Same idea.  Only applied to a 3x monitor setup all being displayed simultaneously on 1 screen.  Something like one of these:
