Except that's not what Dell is advertising the U2913WM for. They're advertising it as a display for the multitasking professional, not an entertainment display. Miss marketed? Sure. But it still stands that this is what this monitor is being sold as, and that's how I'm going to take it, even if it has other uses.
Sorry, I didn't go to the Dell site to see how they were marketing it, & yes that's miss-marketed big-time IMO. Many businesses are looking for ways to save money, & they're not going to do it with one of these displays... not when you can buy two 24" 1080p LCD's for less than half the cost & have a larger overall screen size (albeit at the same resolution) and far more flexibility with how you use them.
But even being a gamer, I wouldn't buy it because it's too small compared to what I already have, & for the reason mentioned above, for 2560x1080 it would need to be at least a 36" screen before I'd jump, and only if it were under $750 @ 36". Unless I had the money to buy 6 of those 29"... then I could remove the bezels & make a custom display holder to hold the 6 of them in portrait mode as close together as possible in a slight curve... & be totally immersed within the gaming environment!
Here's a rough visualization of my concept
Where each stack of two sticky notes represents one 2560x1080 display...
Of course the big drawback besides cost & space... at 6480x2560 it would definitely require some high-end Tri or Quad-SLI/Crossfire. But if I could afford the displays, alone then I would be able to afford everything else needed!
