Re: Dell Ultrasharp U2412M on sale, $289

This monitor will come with a 4-screen split feature, which will be great for business folks in the finance industry.

I would like to read more about that with some examples, what do they call that feature? I checked the link at the topic starter and I didn't see it referenced.

Take a look at this link, the picture has an example of the 4-screen split.

Edit - I'm referring to the LG 21:9 Monitor not the Dell.

Still interesting, thanks for the link! I have a definite use for that, I only wish they had a slightly larger model.

This is just a monitor with a nonstandard aspect ratio and resolution. Just give me a 2560x1600 monitor any day over that and you've got the same thing with more vertical viewing space.

My 2560 x 1600 monitor does not have four inputs for four PC's.

21:9 isn't a "non-standard" aspect ratio - it is theater aspect (which is why you still get black bars watching an unaltered movie on a 16:9 TV) and there have been TVs on the market for the last little bit that are 21:9 already.

Holy crap, I hope that stupidity does not catch on to PC monitors, like 16:9 monitors/laptops did...

But here's a 21:9 ultrabook... LOL

Mine does. I've got enough inputs of various formats on my U2711 to connect five inputs (2xDVI, 1xDP, 1xHDMI, 1xVGA), on top of the television inputs (1xComposite, 1xComponent). If you ignore all the analog inputs, you can even use cheap or passive adapters to get from four computers' digital outputs to the monitor's digital input.

This is one of the big flaws with the U2412M. It's one of their midrange monitors, not high-end, so it only has a basic set of inputs (1xVGA, 1xDVI, 1xDP). You couldn't use it, for example, to connect an xbox digitally, because it has no HDMI, and even with an adapter, you'd have no audio (the U2711 decodes HDMI audio to a headphone jack that you can connect to your sound system).

You have a strange idea of what a "big flaw" is! The inability to connect an Xbox to it without an adapter isn't something most people would ever think about. Another thing you can't do with the U2412M is lay it flat and use it as a cutting board, because you'd crack the screen! It is, however, designed to be a computer monitor, and does that job extremely well.
