    So wider, but no more vertical resolution than a TB monitor. Not sure why I'd want one

    Because it's wider than a TB monitor? :confused:

    This is great for someone who doesn't have a desk that supports dual 27" screens but wants more resolution than a pair of 24" displays. I guess the key here, is will this work at 60Hz without MST over DP.

    I guess you can wait on the 16:10 31" 4k monitor they'll release this year, for me this will do me fine as a first monitor for my nMP.

    Early March based on reports from international internet sources for MSRP $1299

    They're also releasing a 25" and 29" version.

    This is sure interesting - thanks for the heads up

    I need something since I'm going from IMac to nMP.

    (Although I wouldn't complain if Apple wants to release something equivalent.)

    Dang that looks good. I hope the other companies compete doing things like that. The 29 would look great on my desk.

    Now that I'm awake, I wonder if either the 29 or the 34 has the same (or more) vertical size of my 27 inch apple Cinema Display?

    It's going to take me awhile to get a feel for the size of these in the ultra wide format.

    I personally hate the ultra-wide format, but it's very good looking. Nice to see someone besides apple actually releasing a Thunderbolt monitor!

    I hope the 25/29" versions come in 16:9 form factor and preferably 4k resolutions, then we're talking! :)

    At first I was "ehh? Who cares?" but now I'm wondering. I presently have 2xTB Cinema and 1X Cinema monitors for a total of (3x2,560)x1,440=7,680x1,440, over twice the horizontal resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 for the LG, which isn't equivalent to two monitors, more like one and a half. Three monitors is perfect, I have a center and two flanking and is just enough to get some real work done while fitting on a desk.

    However, the advantage of the big LG monitor is that for playing games. Because OS X can't handle multiple monitors, you'd get 1.5x screen, which isn't nearly as good as triple monitor but still not bad.

    Lots of nice stuff on it but they make a big deal about the clear stand but it's not adjustable height! Same stupid form-over-function idiocy as the TB Display and iMac. Pay a ton of money for a great piece of gear and you have to sit it on top of books to get it the correct height.

    And, to add insult to injury - at least from Apple - the TB Monitor and iMac come with instructions about proper ergonomics and how your chair and keyboard and monitor should be positioned.

    They write that is can be connected via TB and that has some USB3&2 ports... but they do not seem to come from the TB controller, do they ? It would be great , though.
