skupples i go back & forth between my PC & shield, depending on what I'm doing.

I built a custom XXL keyboard tray that fits perfectly with my favorite electronic recliner. Comfort is key either way.

I'll definitely be whipping up new solutions for both, once I get into a new place... ~18-24 months from now. I'm currently downsized to a single room, so I'll have no choice but to get & build all new stuff. We'll also have a plethora of HDMI 2.1 stuff on the market in ~24 months, so that's perfect.

When you get rid of the desk, a big screen doesn't look oversized anymore. Get yourself a footrest, a comfy office chair on wheels, a lapdesk and park yourself under the living room tv for a bit. Desks just get in the way of comfort. They are for organizing papers, pens, staplers and envelopes. They are like putting your flat screen in an entertainment center made for crt tvs. So twentieth century.

You can handle bigger. You probably look through a bigger "screen" everyday when you drive to work. Is your reaction time or focus impaired while driving by having a full sized windshield?
A broad fov has been popular since they started making plays. Popular in movie theaters and vr. I've found it to be quite pleasant and don't understand the hangup with it.

CallsignVega Update: Dell has gotten back to us, confirming that their original spec sheet was wrong, and that the monitor comes with DisplayPort 1.4 rather than 1.2. So the display does in fact have enough bandwidth for [email protected] with 8bpc color.

Seyumi What a disappointment....

$4000 price tag
Freescync Only
No HDMI 2.1
400 Nit Peak Brightness
No HDR

DEAD ON ARRIVAL and I'm even an Alienware fanboy too...

No HDR on an HDR LG panel is a big head scratcher. They were probably too scared about burn-in warranty returns so killed off the HDR brightness to prevent this issue. Remember, Alienware caters to the lowest common denominator to dumb or rich kids who know nothing about how to build a PC or how to properly use/maintain an OLED monitor. They want plug & play with no maintenance and so does Dell.

skupples the HDMI2.1 rev won't hit until after the new consoles start shipping.

Asmodian Wow, glad I didn't wait for it and got my C9 instead. I really thought this was going to make me regret it with a DP 1.3 port too...

A very impressive fail, what is the point of this display with those ports?

$4K

DP 1.2 and HDMI 2.0

What a failure.

Why can't someone play 8 hours of games on a weekend? If they've got the free time to do so... why not.

m4fox90 Yeah I'm gonna need 27-35 for desktop use. I've tried to use my Samsung 50" and while HDR BFV looks great, the screen size is just silly.
