Hmm, the article title mentions 3840x1200, but the only mention of it in the article is a mock-up with two 1920x1200 monitors. I might consider this, but only if it is 3840x1200 and not 3840x1080.

OMG, will someone please tell monitor makers that the curved display thing is a useless gimmick already??? Geez.

I disagree. Almost everyone who works on a two- or three-monitor system tilts the displays so the outer edges are closer. This just does the same for ultrawide single displays. The curve on TVs is a gimmick, but for monitors, it suits some of our preferences.

I'd like to spend some quality time with a curved display; though I feel like it's a gimmick I'm at least curious. Some how I don't think anyone is going to let me have a 1 week trial with one .

You could buy one and return it after a week (assuming your store's return policy is fairly lax).

A lot of places have restocking fees for expensive items to prevent just such a thing.
