You can split one monitor this way and you wouldn't have to worry about bezels.

One 21:9 monitor in the middle, two 4:3 monitors, one on each side: The ultimate Eyefinity setup!

Talk about completely useless monitors. At first I was intriguing, that was until I saw the resolution of these, 2560x1080. That is such a crap resolution for something that size. All they are doing is taking my great 27" at 2560x1440 and squishing it down to make it a tiny bit wider at a huge loss of 380 pixels in height.

Just why would you want this? As many have mentioned already the screens are wide enough it is height that we need. Now if say they had down a resolution of say 3414x1440 or 3792x1600 then I could see this being something to get interested about, but as they are now they just are not good compared to the existing 27's.

Word. I can't go to any local store and find a monitor that ISN'T 1080P anymore.

I'm gonna get me one of these. AND a 21.9 TV whenever they are available. I say, it's about time they are building these things.
