The main reason why I bought a 23:9 monitor, to watch movies..

 

Of course, there are some movies filmed at 16:9 ratio, but the vast majority of movies seem to be filmed at 23:9 ratio.

'Media' :tongue:

 

Online media is more what I mean. It's pretty much just a standard that a lot of corporations have used.

 

All forms of digital movie media with their various aspect ratios also for the most part, work ok with 16:9 monitors whereas a 23:9 will have insane borders in many media such as a 4:3 or an annoying side bar in 16:9 animation.

 

 

IT's just a standard is all that most companies like to use.

Depends on your priority I guess, my highest priority when getting a new monitor is movies and gaming, and as I don't feel like spending too much on my PC hardware so I went with a 2560x1080 instead of a 4k.

 

Maybe in the future I'd get LG's 34UC97 3440x1440 curved monitor as personally, after experiencing gaming and watching movies on 23:9 I'm not sure I can go back to 16:9.

That right there (depends on priority) pretty much answers your initial question.

 

 

The addendum to your question then on why it isn't more popularized is in fact answered in the wording of 'popularized'. IT just isn't because it is non standard and the 'industry' prefers 16:9. 

 

So in essence, the full answer to your question is answered in the question itself.

Talking about media and 4k... I wonder how long it will take for movies to be released in 4k?  Sony has a long list of a ton of stuff in "4k" but they don't offer it, instead they only offer "contact us" 

 

"If you have any questions about Sony 4K or want to find out how superior picture performance can help your business, please fill out your details below and we will contact you within 24 hours."

 

So it's only available for commercial use or something?
