Indeed on both accounts. I've had some issues with the PA271W which I purchased (thanks again for your reply to my other post), which has had me switching from the PA271W to the 2490WUXi2. The 2490 isn't much more square, but now seems small.
I'd thought I'd rather have my 300 square inches available to me as, say, 16 x 19 (instead of 13 x 23) and put my palettes, etc. on my (small) primary monitor ... but now I'm not sure. The layout is more than satisfactory.
