    Seriously considering one of these instead of getting a triple screen setup. Supports multiple inputs at the same time and give that double screen width in one unit....any pro's and cons anybody is aware of?

    Actually, I think I can see vesa mount holes in this image. :)

    Now, how to explain to the wife I might just have to spend £300 :D

    A con for me is the limited physical height. They need to get bigger imho.

    Have you seen one in person? They are really squat.

    You definitely have to see them in person and then make your decision.

    I got the one on offer from OcUK. Very different coming from a 27" 1080p. As Saleem said they are very compact height wise compared to a normal monitor but I'm kind of getting used to it.

    Looks about what I was execting and considering it would sit out 10 inches behind the steering wheel, I don't want anything too large. I was considering 3 x 22-24" but thought this might be a much easier to set up and run option.

    It would be a far easier to setup and much easier on your gpu.

    2560 x 1080p vs 5760 x 1080p

    Their is a video that kunos posted abou tthe new clouds with the lotus 49 at monza 66' that shows the view you would get with that aspect ratio. But I can't seem to find the video anymore.
