Benefits of Curved Computer Monitors

Go ahead – admire those curves. And don't worry, you're allowed to stare.
Built with professionals and gamers in mind, curved monitors can give you a more
immersive viewing experience.

Curved Monitors offer an immersive viewing experience

What does it really mean to have an "immersive" viewing experience? One way to answer this question is by looking closely at a curved display. The curved computer monitor, not unlike a curved TV, has a slight curvature that draws the eye to what's on the screen. It allows you to see the entire display, all the way to the sides, at a uniform distance from where you're sitting. As a result, you get an image that appears consistent whether viewed from your main or peripheral vision. If you've ever seen a film in an IMAX theatre, you can imagine the effect of the curve, albeit in a smaller scope more suited to your desk or workstation.

Looks matter

A curved monitor is pleasing to the eye in more ways than one. No doubt, its alluring form is a head turner, designed with the urban professional and graphics enthusiast in mind. As they say, like attracts like, so it's natural to find the screen's curved design appealing, and even comforting, as it's made to match the natural curvature of the human eye. Your eyes, or neck for that matter, don't have to strain to move back and forth when viewing content. A curved monitor is great for those who spend most of their day in front of the computer.

Beyond aesthetics

Sure, it looks swanky and sophisticated, but what about function? Because of the uniform viewing distance, the image on a curved monitor tends to look sharper from edge to edge with a greater sense of depth compared to a regular monitor. Curved computer monitors are able to provide a wider field of view which allow for a fully immersive viewing experience.

The wide viewing angle is especially handy if you prefer to view your work or entertainment on a multi-monitor setup. Professional creative types, video editors, music producers, and gamers will enjoy the additional display real estate. Models with fast refresh rates would also enhance the immersive experience, cutting down on motion blur so transitions between action sequences look natural and seamless.

Things to consider when buying
a Curved Monitor

Resolution and Aspect Ratio

The first things you'll want to consider are screen resolution and aspect ratio. As mentioned already, most curved monitors are ultra-wide, but range in resolution from Full HD 1080p to 4K UHD resolution. So, you'll need to decide what resolution works best for you. Choose the resolution and aspect ratio that fits your activities, whether you like to watch 4K UHD videos or play HD games.

Cost

Curved monitors tend to be pricier than flat ones, mostly because curved displays are more expensive to manufacture. While costs will eventually come down, you will need to weigh the benefits of a curved computer monitor and whether these advantages are worth the extra bucks to you.

Thunderbolt

For Apple users, this is a big one. Now, most curved monitors will probably come equipped with a Thunderbolt connection, but make sure to check, just to be on the safe side.

Curvature

There’s no fixed formula as to what curvature works best and a lot depends on the viewer and environment. For most people, a curved display is something you'll have to go and look at before you buy.

Connections

Curved monitors boast resolutions beyond HD (1080p), such as Quad HD (2560 x 1440), and Ultra HD or 4K (3840 x 2160) for amazingly fine detail. The movie-friendly ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio means you get big, bold cinematic views. Making the right connections is also important, so you can daisy-chain multiple monitors, or display and view several screens simultaneously. If you're a Mac user, look for a Thunderbolt 2 port, which transfers data faster than USB 3.0. HDMI port and DisplayPort carry video and audio, allowing you to hook up to your computer, while HDMI 2.0 can handle 4K resolutions. Proprietary technologies from different vendors add value to your curved monitor, such as built-in quality speakers, protection against eyestrain, features to optimize colour and contrast, and more.

Best-in-class curvature and an ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio combines to provide a truly immersive viewing experience that offers more display area and enhanced viewing comfort.
