Help, considering a curved monitor!

Post by camaroguy1998 »

Subject says it all!
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with a larger(32"+) curved monitor?
I've never really considered one until now!
I've had several different monitors over the years, some good, some not so good!
I will not consider ACER, I've had 2 and bought one for my mom, 2 outta 3 have failed!(btw..I'm on the remaining one)

Happy Halloween! :yikes:

Never had one. Heard they are better on your eyes but not much else. Always been too overpriced for me to bother with.

I've had a curved monitor but only 27" which the wife currently uses. It's really meant for eye strain reduction and a gimmick to feel more immersive as the monitor sits around you. Personally, I like curved monitors but if like me you have 2 monitors then curved don't work :lol:

2 negative responses!
Right now I'm running a (1) 24" ACER, inexpensive monitor and I want to go bigger!
I've seen so many pics with people having 32" & 34" curved monitors and they look like nice setups! :mrgreen:
Guess I'm going to keep looking! Its not like I have to have it!

Don't get me wrong, they do look nice but I just think a flat monitor is going to be cheaper with as good of quality. Only way to know is to get one! Seems the prices have come down a good bit.....
