Curved gaming monitors have won mainstream attention and fortunate for gamers, prices continue to come down. Although there are differences between curved and flat monitors, and while some prefer flat screens, curved monitors continue to win the day. Here’s why.
Curved gaming monitors are all about creating realistic gameplay, giving your graphics card a proper workout and allowing you to jump into the game in a way you can’t do with a flat monitor. Price-wise, curved monitors are oftentimes more expensive than their flat counterparts; however for a lot of gamers, it’s all about quality of product and the experience. A flat monitor can still pack a punch however it’s not going to give the same experience as a curved model. Let’s take a quick look at some of the features of both, curved and flat, and note how they differ.
A 27” flat gaming monitor from PrimeCables comes with UHD 4K resolution, a 60Hz refresh rate, and in an ultra slim aluminum bezel with FreeSync technology. Like its curved counterpart, a flat gaming monitor comes with fast, free shipping to anywhere in Canada. Why a lot of people choose the flat model is because of the Ultra HD 4K resolution. HD quality is 1280×720, Full HD is 1920×1080, and then the Ultra HD 4K resolution is 3840×2160. Get ready to be wowed with this monitor!
Alternatively, a 27” curved gaming monitor is going to come down a little in resolution. For a lot of gamers, from 4K to 1080p may not be a big jump but to others it will be so it’s worth mentioning. Other features include a more premium 144Hz refresh rate, a super thin aluminum frame with FreeSync technology, and a faster response time. Also, contrary to popular belief, curved gaming monitors are just as mountable with a monitor mount as a flat screen. So all in all, the picture quality’s less however the refresh rate is a significant upgrade which is a massive advantage.
Like we said, there’s an argument to be made for both. When it comes to gaming, we would recommend the curved gaming monitor just because of the 144Hz refresh rate. If you’ve never gamed on a curved monitor before however, give it a try first. You may not enjoy it as much as some insist. After all, some gamers still prefer and choose flat-screens, regardless of what’s built into a curved design.
