The screen is 81x36.5x2cm; its stand raises it between 8.5 and 23.5cm from your desk. The stand is 27cm square. There is plenty of back tilt and some forward tilt.
Older films will have borders up to to 10cm wide either side dependant on their original resolutions.
The external connections are in a single line under a shelf on the rear, HDMI, Display Port, USB ‘C’, USB Up, two USB downstream with one being always on. The other two USB3 ports are 10cm up from the left side and 6cm in on the back of the panel.
Should you need to make any adjustments to the display for unusual lighting conditions etc. there are five touch buttons towards the right side of the base of the screen with a single white pin hole LED showing on the screen border area above them.
This is described as a business orientated screen, as mentioned the aspect ratio is 21:9 and the default resolution is 3440x1440 pixels. The USB ‘C’ connection can power laptops and charge them at 65W.
While the four port USB hub can power mouse, keyboard and other external devices through a single USB cable so far less cable clutter.
As also mentioned above you can easily display three 1920x1080 screens and still get more depth to each display meaning those with more than one panel can just have one display to make the whole area look less messy. After around a couple of weeks use I did not even notice the curve with several Windows open and with full screen video it still looks correct.
It still can be viewed from almost any part of the room so no need to sit right behind it.
As mentioned I enjoyed a range of videos during my test period and sitting just over a metre away was great for both video and audio as the units two built in 3W speakers gave good audio output.
Anyone needing to sit using this all day should be safe from eye strain as it has both low blue light and it is flicker free.
For those ‘relax’ times the blacks really are black for dark movies and game times. Should you need it there is also PIP (picture in picture) available from the on screen settings.
