The Deco Gear Curved Ultrawide Monitors provide amazing capabilities such as video editing software and specs found on other manufacturers monitors (such as Dell, Acer or Samsung).

Getting the best monitor is crucial to ensuring that your viewing experience. It may be a dual monitor set up or a curved ultrawide monitor. When purchasing either a dual monitor set up or a ultrawide monitor, you want to keep a close eye on the specs of your set up.

Therefore we believe when discussing ultrawide vs. dual monitors, you are going to get the best display for your PC with an ultrawide monitor over a having a second monitor.

Ultra Wide Monitor Vs Dual Monitor

Why an Ultrawide Monitor over a Dual Monitor Setup

Curved ultrawide monitors or curved gaming monitors offer so many pros compared to a dual monitor flat panel display. Great for multitasking, an ultrawide monitor would be the perfect accoutrement to your PC. The functionality of the immense screen space found on ultrawide monitors, going bezel to bezel, you can expect an amazing aspect ratio, built in apps and a great refresh rate. A monitor like this will enhance your home office and if you’ve got gamers in your household than an Ultrawide Gaming Monitor is the way to go.

While many of these features can be found on a dual screen multi-monitor setup, even a single screen, widescreen monitors should provide additional features and comfort for the user. The benefits of an ultra wide monitor over a dual-screen setup of flat monitors which we have discussed and will delve deeper into, should cement your choice.

With dual monitors you get a bit more flexibility that you would on a single ultra wide screen. you can set up the second screen in a portrait orientation. This is great when using one monitor for work documents and a second monitor for streaming apps, or if you are on a zoom conference call so you have a second screen to use for that while keeping you workspace fluid.

Obviously there are several benefits to going with a dual monitor set up vs. a ultra wide monitor. One being screen space. Even though an ultra wide monitor at a small screen size may provide close to the amount of screen space having a second screen does help in certain regards.

With a dual flat monitor setup you can use Windows Snap, which is a feature built into Windows allowing the user to resize and move windows for better multitasking. Because of the larger aspect ratio usually found on a curved ultrawide monitor (around 21:9) using Windows Snap on an ultrawide leaves you with wide, short windows and possible black bars on your screen. So the user will have to resize the image to the standard 16:9 aspect ratio with less ease of use. A dual-monitor setup also provides more locations to place windows, in addition to better resolution and pixel density over one ultrawide monitor.

Well we touched on several of the benefits of Curved Ultrawide Monitors. Let’s highlight a few of these and decide why a curved ultrawide monitor is best for you.

  • Ultra wide screens with amazing screen space due to their larger screen size for a more immersive experience allowing the curved monitor to wrap its viewing angles around the user.
