Are you one of those people who run two monitors in your PC setup, or do you just wish you had more desktop space? Or are you a movie buff with a penchant for watching movies on your computer? Either way, a 21:9 ultra-wide monitor may just be right up your alley.
If you’re not hip to what “21:9″ means, it’s a measure of aspect ratio. Your HDTV is 16:9, or 16 units of width for every 9 units of height. Do the math, and a 21:9 monitor is about 2.33 times wider than it is tall. Or about the same aspect ratio as CinemaScope films.
Dell is offering a super sale on its 29-inch 21:9 monitor at the moment, pricing it at a mere $495 with free shipping. It’s really not that much more than you’d pay for two 23-inch 16:9 monitors of similar quality, and eliminates the split between them for more efficient workflow. When it’s time to get your movie on, 21:9 allows you to watch scope movies with no black bars, maximizing the vertical space, or if the movie is 16:9, you can keep your Twitter feeds and chat windows in the unused space so you don’t miss a thing. Similar 21:9 displays, even from discount brands like Vizio, run hundreds more.
