Just an FYI to anyone considering an ultra wide, I strongly recommend going for 1440p instead of 1080p at this size.

The reason being that the vertical space is compromised on a monitor like this. I used this exact one connected to a Mac for a long time and when using that setup, having to auto-hide the dock and menubar is a must because UI elements of apps rob so much vertical space.

Most of my work was with documents, so being unable to view the full page at reasonable quality (low PPI means that small things are really pixelated) meant that I would have to scroll all of the time nonstop. It got annoying after some time.

In general, if you want more monitor 'space' than a regular 27inch 1080p monitor, I recommend that you instead get a 32 (or 27) 16:9 1440p monitor. It felt much more usable than the ultra wide.

But if this is just what you're looking for, $299 is a good price. Same price as ~2 years ago, but it's okay.

I would also recommend a USB-C connection monitor if using for productivity. Simplify your cable situation. More expense though so 🤷‍♂️

27UP850N is great with USB-C power delivery (90W).

True but not ultrawide. I have a Dell ultra wide with USB-C and it’s awesome.

i like to shut down a monitor sometimes when somethings running on it with HDMI once you shut it down it reverts to single screen. With VGA at least whatever is going on with the monitor it stays in place as a dual monitor set up without reverting back Confused Face

No 4k on an analog signal.

Honestly I have a i5-2500k server that for some reason only outputs video onto its VGA.
It was a huge issue for me to borrow a monitor that has VGA to get it booted up, figure out what the issue was.

I hope you mean DVI. I can't remember the last time I used VGA.

Agreed. I had an ultra wide for about a month and ditched the ultra wide in the end to just go straight 32” 4k.

Probably worth getting an HDMI-VGA adapter for $10.

not a bad deal! But, on BF I went with the Lenovo 34 ultrawide + curved screen. I needed it for work, but if I had to buy one for personal use. I'd get this one from a price point of view.

Probably for the consumer market but unfortunately, VGA is still quite common in the enterprise server market.

That is why I mentioned Desktop

Servers still use VGA. It is cheap to implement and you don't need the high resolution

In this case, I would just get an adapter to convert VGA to HDMI or preferably Display Port

does the USB-C connection handle both video signal and USB-hub input?
