21:9 Ultra Widescreen Monitors?

Have seen these very wide monitors being released by more and more mfg. and am wondering if anyone has incorporated one of them into their trading setup - either as a solo monitor or as part of a multi-monitor configuration?
The advantage in a solo setup would seem to be that you could have a variety of window configurations (see image for possibilities) all on just one piece of hardware.

Definitely interesting. I read recently Lenovo will also be offering one soon.

The one feature I find most interesting is the "Dual Link-Up" feature:

"the Dual Link-up feature allows two portable devices, such as a computer, camera, phone or Blu-ray player to be connected to the monitor and used on a single screen simultaneously. "

One device must be DisplayPort. You could use a tool like Synergy to share the mouse/keyboard between two machines.

I'm looking at the dimensions of a 29" ultrawide it's about 7" wider but 1" shorter than my 24". I have 4 charts on my screen now and I seriously wouldn't want it any shorter than it already is. A regular 27" monitor is about 3 inches wider and 2 inches taller than my 24" and about half the price of a 29". Thinking that might be a better way to go for 4 windows. If you want two full height windows, then 29" better for sure, but you are gonna pay for it.

MrYou - I saw that Lenovo, too. Has some nice features the other 29's don't - such as integrated webcam/dual-array mike and even a KVM switch.

vegasfoster - Sounds like, based on those dimensions, it might be better to go with two 27's connected via DisplayPort 1.2 daisychain. Is that sorta what you had in mind?

Costco has
LG 34" ultrawide FULL HD 2560x1080 21:9 for $279(warehouse price usually $339.99 then instant savings $60.oo)

I'm planning to get one and try it then see if I want to keep it and run 3 vertical or 2 vertical with older monitor in between. It's Costco...what could go wrong?

I've seen an ultrawide in person. I think it's better suited for someone who only wants one monitor. For those running multiple monitors, it's not cost effective given how much more pricey they are than 16:9 monitors.

And they wouldn't work for side monitors because of how long they are - the far edge of the screen would be noticeably farther away than the near edge even with the side monitor angled in.
