"Selecting A New Monitor"


          

This morning my monitor died. I cannot complain since it was more than ten years old. I want to go from 22 to 27 inches. I noticed monitors with curved screens. I have no experience with these. For a non gamer, would these be a good choice? Are there any cons?

Thanks

When my second 21" ViewSonic died 2-3 years ago, I went to a 27" curved screen Samsung. I don't game, but do some CAD and photo editing. I see no cons having a curved screen.

Seems like it would be a bit of a chore measuring a curved screen to confirm that you got the 27 inch-er that you paid for.

Since space is curved, it should be easier.

I cheeped out and have been using a 32" Sharp TV. It is more than satisfactory at $125.00 and I do game. Had to make props for the front legs to get it at the right angle but considering the cost of monitors at the time it has been great. I am not doing 4K yet just 1080P but might some day if I ever get a video card that will handle it but will have to mount it on the wall then because they don't seem to make any small 4K TV's.
