    ..and you sit too close monitor. you need be same distance from every monitor to have surround.side monitors more angled or sit more far. silly? 1 that kind monitor is designed for gaming. not enought? well buy 6 flat monitor its cheaper and better each monitor can setup angle you want and game settings you say each monitor is this much angle and you SIT between them?!?!? that is surround

    Jari Sipilainen Hour ago

    11:59 forget curves. 9 monitor with angled is better.if your monitor is 10 degree curve then your 3 monitor setup is just 30 on 1 monitor is allready 60. silly?
    you need setup your game for 30 degree FOV. that is hell zoomed in picture. you need top of it to get height. use 9 of these monitors LOL. silly? 1 curved screen is allready what you are supposed to use. why need more? 3 100 inch monitor is same thing when you put black letter box top and bottom. silly? but if you not. YOU See MORE. silly now?

    10:53 2 ways do it. very long flat monitor setup or curved around. they are different things. and people mix them. why strech picture. it is becouse monitors are wrong. when its stech you are supposed look that monitor very low angle(not strech anymore?) bit silly now.
    in surround mode. game need render for all your monitor with correct FOV and angle(where you sit and angle of monitors) they cant be just wing it! they need be correct LOL

    6:26. yes you made long flat screen. game do exactly that. you have curved screen and they are curved around you. they should ne big flat screen(wall) and you need be sit very close center monitor.when you look edge monitor its so deep angle that streched image look normal. well thats how it work. silly? now.
    if you want surround you need be sit centre of everything and tell game this screen is 50 degree this way or something and put your monitoors 40 degree or something.
    sit in center so you are equal distance from everything. silly? one monitor is enought? its designed for that lol. it would be 10feet one monitor if it for desing for that.
    but why? why not 3 70 inch monitor you get same lengh and HUGE height lol and you can sit on couch 6 meter away.silly now?

    It's not high enough, should be a 3 by 2 matrix.

    3 4K 42”-55” TVs might be cool for a window that’s tall and wide. Do 4K TVs not work well with PCs, why even bother with a monitor when everyone has 4K TVs in their house?

      Also you could always just drag the taskbar to one side or the other and click and drag windows to mitigate the issue with standard desktop use.

    Massive waste of time and money. You can’t see all the real estate of three 16:9 monitors as is.
    I can see one possible advantage. In Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround, the two side monitors tend to have the far 1/3-1/2 of the screen stretched. You’d still have that, but it might be less noticeable.
    Can anyone who has experienced both of these types of setups comment on that?
    I used to game in 3D Surround, but once 4K became available even two cards can barely handle 4K, let alone 4K x 3

    Very good video, 99% of people can't afford that expensive monitors to be even 3 of them, but at least we can see even if we can it sucks to have them, good educational video for this type of people who can't afford them to understand that.

    is there a way to take the samsung monitor off of its stand and wall mount it? perhaps maybe you could take like three of those and place them on top of eachother ? i feel like that is more practical and as it doesnt really complete the purpose of the video it would be more practical
