Three curved monitors for gaming and video editing

Curved screen monitors are fantastic. But if you are going to get one, it has to be one that is wide enough to get the full curved experience.

Three curved monitors for gaming and video editing

If there is ever a reason to buy a curved monitor, we think immersion should be at the top of the list. For the full immersive experience, purchasing the larger monitors makes the most sense, which is why we have found three forty-nine inch curved monitors for you to choose. Any of these would make a great addition to your gaming and video editing experience.

The picture above best illustrated what video editing on a full curved monitor would look like, and it makes so much sense. Video editing is all about timelines and frames; it does not matter which software you use, the general interface for editing is standard. There is always a navigation bar where you scroll through layers of videos and audio when editing. A curved monitor is a fantastic tool, essentially giving you a larger space to plan your edit on the software itself. An enormous chalkboard allows you to put more information, and a similar concept can be applied to editing as well. A better tool can be out the most of a video editor and graphic designer.

If this curved LCD monitor is Philip's attempt at being more competitive in the computer market, they have done a fantastic job. We are not saying the other two options are not well-designed or finished, they are, but something about that stand and full black finish speaks to us. Do not be too confused with the word 'LCD' as opposed to 'LED'. Currently, these words are used relatively interchangeably in the computer monitor market. On Amazon, Philips has listed this monitor as a 5K Ultra-HD monitor, which if we are honest, we had no idea was even possible.


Continuing what we said earlier, video editors and graphic designers will appreciate such a full curved display when working. One could even say it would be difficult for a video editor to revert to an ordinary monitor once they are used to working on a curve monitor. Unfortunately, for those who want to watch a movie on such a wide and curved screen, it is not recommended. Videos are not cut in this way, and you would be seated a little further away from the screen when watching the movie where it will appear a little more distorted than what you are used to. Movies are best viewed on a TV, and if you have to, on a 16:9 computer monitor.

While advertised as a gaming monitor, this Samsung curved screen is also the cheapest of all our three options. Gamers looking for a bargain, and since this monitor designed for leisure rather than work, the price makes sense. Such a widescreen and curved monitor must be great for first-person shooter games for sure. A gamer would have a larger field of vision compared to the other online multiplayer, which means less turning around with the mouse and the ability to see an in-game threat lurking around the corner.


Overall, having a headset on and your face enveloped by the curved screen improves the immersive experience. Many racing games on the PC can take advantage of the widescreen, allowing a gamer with a steering wheel a better driver's view from inside the vehicle. RPG games are also able to take full advantage of a curved monitor featuring all the in-game alerts and graphics more effectively. The caveat here is a really good graphics card that can deliver the graphics to your curved monitor effectively.
