Hi
Am looking at replacing my pc monitor and curved is obviously an option. I haven't taken the plunge on tv's but am contemplating it for the pc.
If you have one, would be interested in your thoughts, especially how it goes with flat things like word and email documents. It might be more immersive for a game, but there are plenty of people that use my pc that don't play games, so it has to work across the board.
Thanks in anticipation bravo

I've had a 24" curved Samsung monitor for a couple of years. I absolutely love it. I didn't realize how much I'd gotten used to the better viewing angles until I had to work on a 22" flat screen about a month ago.

To be honest, the curve is so slight that I considered it a bit of a gimmick. But now I would miss it if it wasn't there!
