    Whenever i've sat at or seen a curved 24" used, it just makes no sense to me.

    Nor me. 27? Maybe. 32? Yeah, okay. But 24? Nope.

    Then again, each to his own. They wouldn't release them if there's wasn't a market, so presumably there is. Or they think there is.

    It's likely just the offcuts and they just make a 24in to use them up. I can't feasonably imagine a more annoying screensize than 24in to be curved.

    My daughter had a curved Samsung monitor, simply because the other specs made sense for her.

    She wasn't bothered by the curve, it didn't get in the way. When that monitor died (out of warranty, and that's the second Samsung I've had go with stripes all over the screen) she wasn't bothered by whether the replacement was curved or nor. She has a standard flat one now.

    My main beef with any curved monitor is getting two of the in a multi panel setup. I think I would get OCD about the curves lining up, yet with flat monitors any angle will do. But that probably more a fault with me than the monitors

    Edit: But then I lived with pincushion convex CRT monitors for decades, I guess it is just what you are used to.
