Best Curved Monitor

Professional: More comfortable with a large aspect ratio and resolution

Curved monitors are also often used for professional needs, especially for those of you who work as video editors. For professional needs, we recommend a curved monitor with a large resolution and aspect ratio.

  • Aspect ratio

Monitors generally have an aspect ratio of 16:9. However, you can choose an aspect ratio from 21:9 to 32:9 for curved monitors. With these specifications, your monitor work area is larger. So, you can do video editing in more detail.

  • Screen resolution

For video editing, use a monitor with FHD screen resolution and above. High resolution videos will produce a more satisfactory quality. However, this type of monitor requires a CPU with high specifications as well. The price is even higher. So, also adjust it to the budget and CPU you have, huh!

② Check the monitor’s screen curvature value

Screen curvature affects the monitor’s optimal viewing distance. Usually the value of the screen curvature monitor is 1,800 R to 4,000 R. R is the symbol of the radius, while the previous number is the length of the radius in millimeters. The R value is used as the recommended maximum visibility mark.

For example, a monitor with a screen curvature of 3,000 R means that the monitor’s curved radius is 3,000 mm or 3 meters. That way, it is recommended that you and the curved monitor be no more than 3 meters apart. If you exceed that number, the sensation of using a curved monitor becomes less satisfying.

③ Check the type of panel installed on the curved monitor

There are two types of panels that are installed on curved monitors, namely IPS ( in-plane switching ) and VA ( vertical alignment ). We will explain the characteristics and advantages of each of these panels.

IPS, the color collection on the monitor is wider and more detailed

IPS ( in-plane switching ) panels developed by LG. This type of panel has a large view angle with a good color gamut. IPS panels even have the widest color gamut that is usually used in digital cinemas. The combination of a large view angle and a wide color gamut makes the color display of the IPS panel unchanged.
