Which one is a better monitor overall?
> both are 60hz
> one is ultra-wide regular pixel density 34''
> other is 4k 27''
I'm interested mostly in:
> programming productivity
> movie watching
> browsing internet
Anyone has experience using one of these?
Maximum productivity, 10/10 would use again.
Ultra-wide is only worth it for office productivity, graphic design, and maybe gaymen. I'd prefer multimonitors though.
The 4k monitor would be best for internet and programming, but movies are going to look worse thanks to virtually nothing being available in 4k.
That said, the best monitor for programming is the widest screen you can find that be reoriented vertically. If you can't find a vertically oriented monitor, then the next best thing is to find the tallest aspect ratio (ie get a 16.10 over a 16:9).
I think you would be more productive with 2 x 4k monitors.
Probably would be cheaper too. Ultrawide aren't even good for anything except ultra wide Excel spreadsheets. Shit for gaming, shit for internet (unless you have 3 windows side-by-side you will get a lot of empty space) and shit for movies.
Then do what >>42958834 said and get three monitors. You can do a lot more multi-tasking with three screens than one, even the total resolution is still the same. That way you can have a vertical monitor (or two, or three) for programming and a horizontal monitor for all your daily tasks.
Not my fault you have a short neck or aren't willing to build a custom mount for your 55" vertical monitor.
I'd rather have 2 1440p 27 inch koreans than 1 30 inch 4k. I think as a monitor 4k needs to be 36 inches+ to be any useful from the point of extra screen real estate. Seiki makes a cheap $320 39 inch 4k tv but it only has a refresh rate of 30hz. I would buy it in an instant if it could do 60hz.
>shit for movies
16:9 is going to be pretty meh with big side bars
4:3 is going to be hell on earth
However, it's going to be fucking great for movies ported directly from the cinema reel.
Too bad most movies have the top and bottom bars included as part of the video itself. As a result all you get is a lot of empty black space on the left and right and some faggot bars on the top and bottom.
>Not my fault you have a short neck
Have fun with with your shoulder/neck problems. You'd have to sit across the room in order to use the damn thing.
You know you can easily cut those bars out, right?
And usually it's already done for you, personally I watch those movies with around a 1/3 of the movie on each side of my additional monitors.
I imagine it would be pretty great without the borders, and with a curve.
Of course I am, I usually limit the browser window to only one monitor.
