but yes the issue here is scaling (ie font scaling) because otherwise it would be so tiny it is worthless. I don't see much advantage to trading on this type of monitor, and several disadvantages (mainly the font scaling issue).

Mike, when you talk about scaling do you mean something other than how small it would be or are you implying that it would skew the proportions and hence be difficult to read?

I've been using 30" on max resolution for 5 years and would like something with a slightly greater resolution. So these 32's seem interesting me.

I'm talking about font scaling. It is a requirement for 4K monitors to be usable. I know that Windows 8 makes some improvements in this area (I would rather stick with Windows 7), but it also requires compatibility from the program so for example Sierra Chart would need to specifically support it -- based on my understanding.

All a moot point as I don't intend to buy 4K HD monitor

With regards to the 4k monitors, my initial research implies that you would need a very high end card just to support a single monitor. GPU's currently treat a 3840x2160 monitor as if it were two 2160x1920's, It appears performance on anything below something like a GTX Titan or GTX 780 is sub-standard if you intend to use the monitor for anything graphic intensive. So it looks like you need a $1000 GPU for EACH monitor, hence I'm a long way away from using Dual 3840x2160 resolution monitors. Be interested if anybody else's research implies otherwise.

As a side note, you can get 4K TV's both larger and a lot cheaper than Dell's offerings. But then you probably get what you pay for.

I've decided against this Dell U3014. Just too many problem reports.

I am now leaning towards this:

30" IPS LED Backlit LCD Panel WQXGA 2560x1600 Dual Link DVI-D, DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA w/Adjustable stand -Matte / Anti-Glare - Monoprice.com

Monoprice (rebranded) 30" IPS LED model #10734

For $689 it is a good price, and the reviews so far seem quite good. Since I am not a graphics professional I don't need super accurate color with sRGB or Adobe RGB profiles, which seems to be the weakest link of this monitor.

I'll have to make a decision shortly. It's on my short list of stuff to go in the container prior to my move.

Hi Big Mike
Why not consider 27" Monitor with resolution 2560x1440, it is only half price with compare to 30" monitor.
Same price to (3) 30" Monitor, you can have (6) 27" Monitor.

Didn't check the link, but a few of my coworkers have the 27" mono price monitor. Awesome panel technology, but not VESA compliant mount point if that matters. Also, they are bare bones in terms of configuration (I don't recall what all was meant by that, but I'd guess that meant you have no choice but to run it at the max resolution, can't adjust colors/brightness / contrast on the monitor itself? Or maybe to do with the color profiles as you already mentioned). also the stand was fixed, proprietary, and inflexible for positioning. Again, didn't look at the link, and I'm talking about a different model, but I'm assuming they cripple all of they monitors similarly. All that said, the people who I know who have them are thrilled with them for the cost.

Edit: glanced at the link. You can pretty much disregard my post

I was thinking about going down a similar route, but with 27" monitors. Right now I have something similar to what you have. The bezel/monitor gap on the 6 monitor setup drives me crazy, especially since I have the top 3 tilted down towards me, making the gap problem worse. Anyway, looking forward to pics.

Quoting 
I previously ran five of these 24's in portrait mode side by side and liked it

Many years ago, I tried this using a ViewSonic monitor that had a stand that would allow me to rotate the monitor 90 degrees into portrait mode, but it required 3rd party software that I couldn't get working properly so I gave up on the idea at the time. A lot has changed since then of course.

So today, do you need special software that enables Window's to work correctly with the monitor oriented in portrait mode, or can this be configured from within Windows Display Settings somehow ?

Be Patient and Trade Smart

Read post #1.

Short answer: 1440 is not enough.

No, just rotate. Nothing else. All automatic.
