The well known Korean manufacturer has recently presented its new kickass display, the LG EA93, that features an aspect ratio of 21:9 with a resolution of 2560x1080 (same height as full hd but double width) that without a doubt will bring huge possibilities, not only making multimedia content look awesome but also being functional by allowing more windows to be displayed on screen at once. For instance, having two web browsers next to each other, or splitting the screen in two or four parts.
A 29' beauty at the reach of domestic users.

It will be released in Korea before the end of the year at an approximate price of 640 US dollars.
The connectivity will include three USB 3.0 ports, 2 HDMI, DVI. It also comes with two 7W speakers.

Here is a video from a recent event in which the display was showed:

So... enough talk for me, what do you guys think ?
I'm quite excited for this. I run audio production software with maaaany windows so one screen is never enough. It might be great for gaming as well... and also for nvidia 3d vision :D

Personally, I'm not into 21:9

It is only nice in a cinema if you ask me, where the screen is really huge and is a bit curved.
Personally I prefer 16:9 screens. To say so, I like the LG cinema 3D screens more. Though if you are talking about using it as a desktop screen for gaming. That's a different story. Then It's quite nice Posted Image

Btw: philips his version is better imho. It has Ambilight

Yeah, too bad the price for that Philips is more than 5000 dollars xP so the LG is 90% cheaper~

You are right, for tv and movies it's not that great but I just assume we are talking about gaming here :D I see in all the recent G-Stars they use several monitors side by side which I personally hate... so this trend should be substituted for using wider displays, without borders in the middle =)

Well... why 16:10 ? any specific reason? it's too similar to 16:9 xD I kinda prefer wider displays~ I guess it's a personal choice.

It'd be great as a TV but I'd rather have a 20" 2560x1440 Super PLS display as a monitor.
It is great to see IPS displays getting cheaper though.
