Moving to a 30" has been amazing, fits the 3:2 ratio very well, anything with 16:9 ratio just doesn't make sense to me.
I've only worked with 4:3 monitors, never with 16:9 widescreen, so not sure how I would feel with a narrow monitor. You would think the 4:3 would be better with portrait mode shots. There are still some 4:3 monitors around; not sure if I should consider those for a new acquisition.
I was tempted to seek out another 4:3 because of this issue but a 30" does give more vertical real estate than my 19". If I am in PS with a vertical shot I rotate it but a 30" monitor is a bit of a monster and rotating it is a bit of a pain. 4:3 can either be good for flexibility or jack of all orientations and master of none depending on your point of view, ideally you have a second monitor in portrait orientation for max flexibility. The in-vogue style for weddings these days seems to be all landscape orientation shots (and vsco actions) for some reason so I guess this bothers a lot of people less - still don't understand how 16:9 is ever a good choice though.
