I am considering upgrading my 5-year old desktop monitor from a flat 27" widescreen LCD with 1920x1080 resolution to curved 34" LG/Dell/BenQ/whatever ultrawide with 3440 x 1440 resolution.
I work mostly online and with Office files (with occasional video editing) and I've been annoyed that I cannot really snap two browsers into equal screen share (to imitate dual display) because neither would be displayed wide enough to view page content.
So, given that a new display will be even wider, I am wondering if curved format displays are worth the premium price they are commanding. Would hate it if I fell for a gimmick and paid 30-40% more on top of it.
What monitor do you work on and how do you find it?
Particularly interested in hearing from those of you with experience working on curved displays - does it really make a difference if the monitor wasn't curved vs curved?
