Benefits of Curved Monitor - Are Curved Monitors Better

Better for Your Eyes

As we all know spending as much time as we do in front of our computer monitors as we do, it’s imperative to get the right computer monitor to minimize eye strain. Therefore we recommend a curved monitor especially when used as monitor and not a TV (for the viewing angles). Here are a few pros and cons that we feel make Curved Monitors the go-to choice whether you are a gamer or a professional or just using the computer for personal use.

Curved Monitors Pros for the eyes:

  • Allows for the human eye to take in everything being displayed while reducing eye strain as the monitor has a curved panel to sort of wrap around the peripheral vision of the user.

  • By reducing the eye strain the viewing experience is greatly enhanced.

  • Curved Monitors are better than flat monitors as curved monitors even at their largest size allow for a more natural field of view as if looking at your daily surroundings.

  • Aspect ratio equal to or better than similarly priced flat monitors offering some of the same or better viewing with HDR available and other eye stain minimizers.

More Immersion

Curved Monitors offer more immersion than a Flat Monitor. What exactly does more immersion mean, how does it benefit me, what are the pros of this?

  • More immersion is where it’s at. As a curved monitor may have a more natural feel to viewing angles, it may not even seem as you are looking at a screen.

  • Screen real estate is so important and with the curved monitor viewing angles which allow the entire screen real estate to be viewed by the human eye.

  • Newer monitors typically have smaller bezels and better edges of the screen enhancing immersion.

  • Curved displays allow for better 3 dimensional viewing.

  • Significantly less blurriness when facing the screen directly, as the immersive nature allows for better

Less Distortion

There is less distortion on a curved monitor than there would be on a flat monitor. Curved monitors take advantage of their wider field of view to the single user. This allows for an even more immersive experience when viewing. Flat panel monitors have straight viewing angles while curved monitors aim the viewing angle more around the user, making for a better PC viewing experience.

One downside to curved displays versus flat displays are the viewing angles when viewing from off angles there maybe some distortion versus flat screen monitors even on ultrawide monitors.

Better for Gaming

Having less distortion is a great feature especially for gamers. As gamers need to have the full viewing angle with virtually no distortion. Having high resolution and even HDR make for a fantastic gaming experience. Imagine you are playing an immersive game either online with others or by yourself and you feel like you are inside the action. These monitors typically come with fantastic response time.

I play some of my favorite games on a curved screen. Imagine even something like a racing game, you feel like you are right in the middle of the race course. The viewing experience is amazing and reduces eye strain especially for long viewing times.
