    Good point kota, I am just saying oil the squeaky wheel!

    EDIT: I just need to quit being impatient and rest assured that Tim and Co. are doing their best to get things sorted.

    45 is too much for a triple screen setup! that view in the video above is unrealistic!

    45 is too much! It should be 42!:)

    The only realistic setting would be 43.141667 FOV.

    lol

    At the risk of flogging a dead horse... without knowing his screen size and seating position you don't know that.

    You are right! I was saying for me, because I have a triple 25" and I'm very close to the center monitor(about 70cm)! sorry....

    The actual looking of the image on the monitors is different from the video. The video looked unrealistic probably because a curved image displaying in a flat manner.

    Yeah, it's bad enough discussing FOV with embedded youtube videos already; with your triples it gets squashed even more; and you have multiview on... seeing (slightly) backwards on a flat image is just weird :)

    Anyway, most people run higher than realistic FOV, even those with triples I'd say. Each to their own.

    is triple screen worth it? After 3 month with it my answer is: no.

    bezel, angles, etc, dont compensate the little advantage for wide view. and that wide view isnt true, you can see both sides when you want, but the 99% of time you are seeing at center one, and playing only on the center one.

    I will come back to one monitor (120hz/144hz) soon, it is way better than 3x60hz/75hz.

    I donĀ“t know how to express how much i disagree with you, mostly because of immersion in my case and because i have a home built cockpit (a little messed up but works).

    Only thing that can beat 3 screens it will be Oculus Rift, but still have a long road to be released to the public.

    Yeah, but everything wizzes by at a regular speed, otherwise it feels like driving inside a fish tank and that nothing is moving even if the dial says 240 km/h, at least at 28 degrees. :p

    I agree that you spend most of the time looking at the middle screen, but its all about peripheral vision just like in a real car.
    I switched to triples not long ago and couldn't go back to a single screen now.
