Seven curved monitors that can offer a great experience with your computer

This time, we will go from flat screens to a curved screen. In this article, we have selected seven monitors with curved panel really attractive that can be fellow travelers very desirable if we want to get the most out of your computer.

The current supply of this type of monitors is still not nearly as wide as the flat screen devices, but the fact is that the market can already find very attractive proposals. Some even come with an interesting price. However, before going into details we suggest you dig out the post that we dedicate some time to the experience that we provide the curved screens, especially if you had the chance to read it at the time. Let’s go there.

Seven curved monitors

A point “landing”

Some of the manufacturers that are not represented in this post are about to be placed on the market with curved panel monitors that, on paper, look very nice. A good example is Asus, which has presented at Computex, held in Taipei (Taiwan) in early June, the ROG 3800r, a curved screen 34 – inch IPS panel and NVIDIA G-Sync technology designed for gamers, and the model LX341, also 34 inches and with integrated speakers Asus SonicMaster amplification own and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower.

“Acer, Asus and Philips are among the manufacturers who are preparing new curved monitors with very good looking”

Acer itself is represented in this post, but it’s worth mention who has taught at Computex their new Predator X34 and X35. The first is a model 34 – inch IPS panel and a refresh 100 Hz, and the second, with the same size, uses a VA cheaper panel but reaches 144 Hz.

And finally, Philips has revealed that in the next edition of IFA to be held in early September in Berlin, will present its first curved monitor aspect ratio 21: 9 and UltraWide QuadHD resolution (3,440 x 1,440 pixels).In addition, there will come accompanied by the new base Ambiglow Plus, a device designed to create a halo of light on and around the base, and that is synchronized with the images that we see on the screen. We can guess that is similar to the Philips Ambilight technology that integrates years into their TVs.

Acer XR341CKA

This monitor is one of the curved screen devices designed specifically for gamers the most interesting we can find right now on the market. Or rather, we will find soon because Acer confirmed in April when they presented it, would come to stores across July. Its most striking feature is its compatibility with the NVIDIA G-Sync technology, designed to minimize flicker (which the play is very important). However, this is not the only reason we’ve noticed it.

It also stands out from many of its rivals for its native soda, which reaches 75 Hz and not stays in the usual 60 Hz, and also a response time of only 4 ms, a rather imposing figure on a monitor with a panel as this Acer. Precisely, for this reason, it seems an overly optimistic value, although we hope to have the opportunity to test it thoroughly to confirm whether the Taiwanese brand has really hit the bulls-eye with this proposal. Until then it is “signed” because it looks really good.

Dell UltraSharp U3415W

Dell is one of the brands that commonly appear in our selections of monitors because it has a very interesting proposals quality and a very competitive price. And this model UltraSharp curved panel family is no exception. As you can see in the picture its base is not as stylized as some of its rivals, but if we take their specifications, that after all are the most important, convincing.

First of all, this is a monitor U3415W “off – road” that should perform well both running games as when used in a purely electronic office scenario. In addition, connectivity is well resolved; in fact, incorporates an HDMI 2.0 input, a mini-DisplayPort and DisplayPort 1.2, one DisplayPort (MST) start and a good supply of USB 3.0 ports. But what makes it stand out against most of its rivals is its price, well below the psychological barrier of 1,000 dollars. Only the 34UC97 LG rubs shoulders with it’s in our selection, so worth keeping in mind.

HP Envy 34c

HP also wants to be noticed in the market of curved monitors. And this Envy 34c is products that catch the eye. As you can see in the picture, its base is quite original and has a unique overall design. Rather than choose to reduce the size of the frame as much as possible, which is what some of its competitors, HP has opted to integrate in this model two 6W speakers that increase quite the side frames, but that will come very While users who prefer a built -in speakers on the monitor to not hogging space on your desk.

Two features that worth to pay attention are its brightness and native contrast, both higher than we offer some of its rivals. These features largely prompted by the IPS panel, but also, a well – executed electronically, should ensure a high quality of the image, and therefore an interesting versatility. Of course, this is not a cheap monitor. In fact, it is the most expensive of our selection, tied with Acer XR341CKA.

LG 29UC97

If the 34 inches that have most of the curved monitors this post will seem excessive, it is possible that this LG is what you’re looking. Its panel offers a more moderate 29 inches, and this is reflected in the price, not around 1000 dollars usually ask us for monitors 34 inches. Of course, the smaller the panel is logically a clear impact on the resolution, which in this 29UC97, 1080 x 2560 points stays, a fact which, moreover, is not bad.

However, we must not overlook that this model incorporates an AH-IPS panel edge (remember that LG is one of the leading manufacturers of TFT LCD panels in the world), allowing you to reach a soda from 75 Hz and a response time of 5 ms, two specifications that make it appealing to the eyes of gamers. And besides, it’s pretty nice, so here is another appealing candidate to accompany our computer.

LG 34UC97

This curved monitor 34 inches is an “old” known for our fellow had the opportunity to analyze it shortly after it was filed, so if you want to discover in detail what offers us, do not miss in-depth analysis. In any case, we can come forward that they fully convinced them by their overall picture quality, but drew attention to them especially its dynamic range and level of detail in dark areas.

Other interesting features of this 34UC97 who left a good “taste” to our colleagues from are integrated speakers with a power of 7 watts each; the ability to simultaneously display two video sources by dividing the screen and creating two virtual monitors 1720 x 1440 dots, and connectivity well resolved in highlighting the Thunderbolt 2 ports (an important feature if you use a Mac).

Samsung S27D590CS

This curved monitor, like the LG 29UC97, is an appealing option for those users that the 34 inches of the other proposals of this post seem excessive. Its price, as you can see the tab that you have under these lines, is much lower than models with larger panels. However, all this requires us to take a toll: its resolution is 1920 x 1080 dots, perhaps somewhat low for what they expect to find some users on a 27-inch monitor.

Moreover, this proposal for Samsung looks really good. The South Korean brand seems to feel comfortable with VA-type panels, probably because he has found a way to get the most out with a well – executed electronics. In fact, the panel of this monitor offers a very interesting native contrast and response time is not as low as that of the TN panels, but valid, at least in theory, for most gamers. Of course, the overall picture quality of VA panels is usually very good, so worth keeping track.

Samsung S34E790C

This Samsung monitor is much more ambitious than the model we just reviewed and also, of course, much more expensive. Although both have an important common feature: a panel of VA type of art that, in theory, should give us a very high image quality. In fact, this S34E790C stands out from some of its rivals by offering a native contrast quite “powerful” (3000:1), and, at par, a time of lower than most of its competitors with IPS panel response.

Another attractive feature of this display is its ergonomics. And it allows us to adjust the height and tilt of the panel. PBP also has modes (Picture-by-Picture) and PIP 2.0 (picture-in-picture) that allow us to visualize simultaneously monitor two different video sources. And it has the Samsung Flicker Free technology, which, on paper, minimizes flicker to reduce fatigue of our eyes. As you can see, it looks really good, so it’s a product worth consider if we want a 34 – inch curved monitor to last.
