I personally like the ultra widescreen for my day to day usage.

Why see you considering a touchscreen? Would you actually use it and how would it affect your productivity? Throwing the touchscreen monitors in is like comparing Apple's and oranges depending on your usage scenario.

No, I don't think it will have a huge effect in my productivity, I just use one in a laptop and it was nice, also love the presentation for the Surface Studio, it looks like Microsoft is moving to touch and 3d for creators, the problem, the price, I'm not sure if it worth it, I think that I prefer at the very end to have more pixels.

DLP. The only limit is how powerful it is. Aspect and size along with 'connections' goes out the window. That's what I'm getting next. My 48.5" Vizio M smart tv will be my last. Even my monitor I would replace with a dlp if I could. Obviously for artists and graphic design whatnot a highend monitor is a must but they are way over a G.

Monitors are even more. I think the line between tv and monitor is solely based on your needs.

Can you give me an example of this off pixels?

Thanks

Do you have a link to this one? DLP is a kind? I'm not following you, sorry.
