[citation][nom]nukemaster[/nom]I think for computer work, I like it much better that way then the more wide screen 16:9 ratio.[/citation]
16:9 does feel somewhat awkward for most stuff aside from video. I'm using one in portrait mode for reading/coding, takes a while to get used to having almost two pages worth of stuff vertically. 16:10 isn't a whole lot different but it usually looks like a more natural fit for conventional desktop applications.
2560x1700 is roughly 3:2... 16:10.6, so slightly square-er than 16:10 still.
