Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has just announced the cure for the common 20-something-inch 1080p display: a small TV-sized 31.5-inch monitor with a massive resolution of 3840x2160. Engadget reports that the Asus PQ321 display, which uses IGZO technology to reduce energy usage and thickness, includes DisplayPort and dual-HDMI input, integrated speakers, and an adjustable stand." The dread of 1366 and 1080p is being removed. Finally.

It is still an inferior "HD" (16:9) resolution.

I want 16:10, god damn it... I wish the screen manufacturers would quit going cheap on the damn vertical space. :/

3840x2400 or no sale!

I need 3 of them on a mount so I can go 11520x2400 for video editing movies or 7200x3840 for everything else.

It's over 40cm in height, not what I'd call "cheap on the vertical space" !

16:9 is a crappy ratio for notebooks, but it makes perfect sense for very large desktop screens.

no, it doesn't
I own a 27" tft with a 2560x1440 resolution, and I still miss 4:3 screens

16:9 was just a cheap way to increase the nominal size, without delivering more physical area

As a glad 16:10 25 inch Asus monitor owner, I can see why.

16:9 is not wide enough.
I need ultra wide. My next monitor will be 2:1 or more.

viton,

"I need ultra wide. My next monitor will be 2:1 or more."

Do you have some niche requirement? Uness you want to emulate a dual monitor setup using a single monitor, then I don't understand what you'd want it for.

I can't agree more! I was at our local hospital the other day. They all had 4:3 LCD monitors. I forgot how nice it is to have so much vertical space. Please bring back the 4:3 ratio too!!
