    Curve on a 16:9 monitor thats under 50"... pfffft. The 21:9 I can kind of understand, but none of them appeal to me. Better look next time Samsung!

    There's a lot of things that I want from a monitor: 1440p+ at 120Hz+, IPS-quality colours, for example.
    Curvature is not one of those things.

    Curvature has one benefit that often gets overlooked: it's nearly immune to glare. For almost any possible light source position (other than a point source at the exact centre of curvature), the most glare you can get from it is a single vertical line rather than the entire screen being washed out.

    + 1 -

    Curved TV's are a bit pointless because the benefits are lost because of the distance from you and TV - unless its silly big. Your eyes adjust to the curve at a distance and after 5 minutes you notice no difference...

    But close up - on your desk only a foot or two away... Your clearly would notice the difference.

    I'd consider 2560 x 1080 if the pricing was right as GPU's aren't really up to 4k gaming yet.

    Curved screens are the most stupid gimmick to try and sell new products I've ever seen! IMAX is understandable, but on home products? Thanks, but no.

    Have to agree here. There are more important features I'm after. I've not suffered from glare except back in the CRT days. As soon as those damn curtains were open arrrgh!

    Hear, hear!]

    (on a side note, are there currently any decent 120+hz IPS monitors out there?)
