The width is like having two monitors side by side
Everyone is gonna want one of these. Hands down
Colors look excellent
Screen split software works well
Got it on a perfectly timed 50 off deal which made it an even better value
Desk space Where'd it go
Only comes with a HDMI cable
Not a con, but make sure you know what resolutions through which media your gpu supports. 2560 1080 worked through HDMI on mine, even though the monitors instructions say use DVI-D dual link
2560 1080 is a difficult resolution to work with in Split screen 1280 1080, which Windows does not have
While the bezel is really small, the screen has 10mm where the monitor will not fill, making it a total of 13mm, on the borders. Bottom border is 20mm. So it is not ideal for multi-monitor
