    Just started using Davinci Resolve Studio a few days ago and am loving it, especially editing raw footage. I am not loving it too much on my 21.5" widescreen monitor. I saw several people online were using ultra-wide 21:9 monitors - and I saw this 29" inch LG one that's normally $300+ on sale at Best Buy for only $229. http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29U...rawide-monitor https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-29-i...?skuId=5770301

    It has good reviews but it only has an HDMI input on it, and I can't in the reviews where anyone's mentioned using it for anything other than photoshop/premiere (no one mentioned resolve). My GTX 1060 has a HDMI output, but it seems weird to use it as the primary output.

    Any thoughts on editing on an ultra-wide, and on this particular monitor?

    Thanks !

    I would put emphasis on the color gamut of a monitor and a 10-bit monitor instead of 8-bit. You can get those 8-bit + FRC and they are good too. On the low price end, these are some of the monitors to look at:

    1. Dell UP2718Q 27" 16:9 UltraSharp 4K IPS Monitor
    2. LG 32UK950-W 32" 16:9 4K UHD Nano IPS Monitor
    3. ASUS MG28UQ 28" 16:9 FreeSync 4K UHD Monitor
    4. BenQ EL2870U 27.9" 16:9 LCD Monitor
    5. NEC MultiSync EA275UHD-BK-SV 27" 4K UHD sRGB IPS Monitor

    I have a 29" LG 21:9 monitor as my GUI screen for Resolve. It is wonderful having all the extra space. It also really helps with other tasks not related to Resolve, like having two full windows open side by side for comparisons, watching films, video, gaming (if you do that) etc. I use a second color accurate screen for color grades.

    You'll never watch any widescreen content the same again on a 16:9 screen. You'll also get really annoyed when people just slap black letterboxes on their 16:9 videos and call it a day.

    I say get it and plan on eventually getting a 10 bit monitor and decklink output card for accurate coloring.

    I've had this for a few years now, it's possible better options exist at this point.
