I work with a guy who uses a 40-something-inch curved monitor. He said it took a little getting used to, but that he likes it because the sides of this large monitor are better oriented to face him rather than him having to shift positions a little to get more directly in front of things.
This makes sense to me for the same reason that my laptop monitor, sitting off to the side, faces me at a different angle than the larger desktop monitor that it’s connected to.
I’m in the market for a new monitor, so I’ve been looking into the larger curved ones, but am leaning against getting one since I’m finding their resolutions typically being lower than I’d like. Pairing a 6–8K resolutions with an extra-large curved monitor would make sense, but very expensive. Besides, the selection is limited and it would require also buying a new computer capable of taking advantage of them.
A slight tangent, but speaking of 6-K monitors, Apple’s seemingly going to be selling a (non-curved) one this fall at a whopping $5,000, which would make a perfect pairing with their $15,000 maxed out tower. (I can only dream.)
