    Curved Ultrawide or go home! Reply

    Is there any actual use for a curved screen? I tried to find any 'valid' reason, even using one in work, yet still haven't found one.

    Marketing.

    Don't fall for it.

    As someone who uses three 16:10 monitors for gaming, I can tell you that the wrap around effect of ultrawide is a great inprovement over staring at a 16:9 letterbox.

    Yes, it may may zero sense in your living room; with multiple people sat off-centre, sat 10ft away from a 49" screen that is 16:9 aspect.

    It may also make little difference on a 27" 16:9 computer screen.

    However, the original comment referenced curved "Ultrawide", and that is indeed a boon for gaming when you have a typical 34" screen that your eyeballs are less than 3ft from.

    Anybody who uses two programs at once. I get great use out of my curved ultrawide at work for programming. Reply

    Yes, when the screen is wide enough and you sit close. I use two monitors. I don't orient them flat, next to each other. I angle them so they point towards me. I can replace them with a single ultrawide curved monitor. Reply

    "Is there any actual use for a curved screen?"

    Glare reduction. Glare on a flat panel will cover the panel, particularly for large sources like open windows or brightly lit light coloured walls. On a curved panel, that glare is limited to a single vertical line, or eliminated entirely (depending on angle and viewing distance).

    Well I like curved displays. :-p . Reply

    I've had a flat ultrawide and have two curved ones. I sold the flat one because sitting close to it the corners would feel strongly angled away from me (because the angle was different). Reply

    The only use for a curved screen is with a desktop. You sit close enough that it actually has benefits as it wraps around you FoV.

    For TVs they're worthless.

    Better use a clever curved one, then. Reply

    Ultrawide - maybe. Curved? Please no. Reply

    Well finally a monitor with 1k nits for brightness, and at least approaching REC 2020 gamut too. Praise be Odin the all father if it isn't close to what I want (where's Freesync 2 support???) Reply
  • vladx - Friday, April 21, 2017 - link

    Why would you need Freesyn on a non-gaming monitor? Reply

    Because it's easier on the eyes when scrolling or moving the mouse. Also some people work with 3D modeling. Reply

    I hope some day we get to have a 27" 1440p HDR 144Hz IPS/OLED display with full-range Freesync support... Reply

    im still hoping for a monitor with next to no bezel on the sides and top.. bottom as well IF possible.. the 2nd two.. are not it.. they have the " fake " bezels... the bezels are thin.. but the screen doesnt go all the way to them.. looks like there is still a 1/2 to 1/4 of an inch of bezel.... Reply
  • Shadowmaster625 - Friday, April 21, 2017 - link

    Those bezels are yuuuge! Why is it called Infinity Edge? It's more like an Infinity Edge with 0% crit chance. Reply
  • DanNeely - Friday, April 21, 2017 - link

    From the pictures the 2 infinity edge displays (ie not the one at the top of the article) have the same bezel size as my U2515H and XPS13 laptop (where Dell marketing originally coined the "infinity edge" term for). Reply

    ...U2415... *sigh* Reply
  • Kromis - Friday, April 21, 2017 - link

    "...and the U2515D is a 25-inch model."
    "... and the U2518D in the same time frame for $499.99."

    Second to last paragraph.

    F'ing behemoths, do I look like sporting an InfinityDesk to have those giants far enough away so I can actually view the whole screen almost at once without requiring a neck workout all day? The first company to produce a decent 23-25" UHD (or better) screen will get my money instantly! The P2415Q and UP2414Q are so utter crap...

    I totally don't get it, laptops are shrinking beyond usability while screens a growing beyond usability.
