Why you want a Curved Monitor as a Gamer over a Flat Monitor

Curved or flat monitors. That’s the question so many gamers have to ask themselves. Shopping monitors doesn’t always give a clear cut choice on what’s preferred. There’s no questioning curved monitors are on-trend right now, preferred by many in the professional gaming industry as they tend to give a more realistic, immersive portrayal of the action. But, do you really need a curved monitor – well, here’s how we see it from a gamer’s perspective.

Curved monitors are designed in a way that replicates reality, using ‘ocular perception’. We see the world in length, width, and height, for example. If everything were to be flat, it would only employ two dimensions. Curved monitors create the illusion of three dimensions, tapping into perception of peripheral vision. For a lot of people, this is the primary benefit of seeing a game through the perspective of a curved screen.

Beyond being a generally more immersive viewing experience, a curved gaming monitor also generally presents as less distorted and less blurry. If you’re getting a video or picture quality distorted due to a hardware issue, a curved screen does not have the same distortion as a flat monitor would. That’s because curved screens’ shape aims everything at the viewer rather than a flat screen which broadcasts everything in a uniform straight line. As mentioned, we don’t look at things flatly and so when we see vision flat, it can sometimes create perceived distortions especially at the edges. A curved monitor doesn’t have that issue because everything’s positioned on a more natural curve.

Playing video games on a curved monitor also is generally more comfortable on the eyes and results in less eye strain. Even at a large size, a curved screen gives the user the chance to feel comfortable without unknowingly challenging their eyes to strain across a flat surface. Lastly, curved monitors also provide a wider field of view. As curved will always direct light from all angles, your eyes can more easily cover a larger field of view. This is the main reason why it is believed and said that curved monitors are ‘more immersive’. To put it in a nutshell, you forget you’re looking at a monitor when you have a curved field of view in front of you.

Curved vs flat monitors is a debate we enjoy having at PrimeCables. If you’re seeking a curved gaming monitor or a flat gaming monitor, please visit Canada’s own PrimeCables today and receive fast, free shipping on all orders above $49.

How to Set Up a Dual Monitor Mount for Two Monitors at Home

So you’ve decided to add a second monitor to your desktop. Wonderful news! Adding another monitor comes with many benefits and provides you with more screen to spread different elements across.

Dual monitor mounts are arguably a necessity if you’re setting up two monitors at a personal workstation or gaming station. Dual monitor setups are pretty standard, these days. You have plenty of dual monitor mount types to choose from. There are also many reasons why people upgrade to dual monitor mounts, including the ability to game and stream at the same time, to edit music or movies in a more efficient fashion, to translate documents, and for more.

Installing a dual monitor setup begins with first deciding where you want each of your monitors. Desks which don’t have enough room for two monitors on their surface are no problem. Dual monitor mounts are where you want to go. Using a mount, whether it’s in the form of a wall or arm, you lift both monitors up off the surface of your desk. Not only is this a more immersive way to consume content but it also frees up that valuable desk space. Ensure your line of sight is appropriated to the screens, as to avoid neck strain or eye strain.

If you’re installing a dual monitor mount that affixes to the wall, you will want to find the wall studs first to ensure your monitors don’t come falling down out of nowhere, wrecking your wall, mount, and the monitors themselves.

If you aren’t working with a monitor wall mount, you’re likely with a desktop dual monitor mount. For these, all you need to go is ensure the mount is secure to the desk and that the monitors have been properly positioned in the mount. Security is important, regarding any mount. If you have any doubts about a monitor that’s not properly nested into its mount, don’t leave it like that. Always verify that the desk and mount can handle the weight of your monitors.

There are some other non-mount related installation steps you’ll want to take, including deciding which ports you intend to use and how you want to access them, calibrating screen resolution settings, and ensuring your refresh rate is accurately set and which does not exceed what your monitor can handle.

For dual monitor mounts, single monitor mounts, triple monitor mounts, and more, visit Canada’s own PrimeCables today. See some of the best sales in Canada on computer accessories and enjoy fast, free shipping to anywhere in the country on all orders above $49.

Why Curved Monitors continue to be a Major Trend in the Gaming Industry in 2019

Curved monitors have become a favourite among gamers and general consumers, always seeking the latest and greatest in the world of technology. There’s a lot of reasons why curved monitors are preferred by gamers.

Not only are they visually impressive and futuristic to have, curved monitors also come with a more immersive experience at their feet. For gamers, having an immersive, theatrical experience is preferred to sitting in front of the same boring old monitor setup. They’re built well, sleek, and are considered among the best monitors in Canada.

There are several curved gaming monitors on the market and some of which are upgrades on existing flat-screens out there. We challenge anyone to play a game on a flat-screen and then, on a curved monitor. See which you prefer.

Curved monitors are a lot more exciting and a lot easier to stare at for hours on end throughout the day. Using a curved monitor, you’ll likely find lower latency as well which is a huge advantage. No one wants to see their game lag again and again. That’s why curved monitors are meant for gaming. They’re high-tech, wide, and are perfect for almost any multimedia. There’s not a better display out there, we’ll argue.

Some of the features you might want to look for in a curved monitor includes a mountable design, specifications relating to gaming precision and accuracy like a high refresh rate and fast response time, and multiple input options.

Browsing the most impressive curved monitors in Canada, you’ll find one from PrimeCables that suits all these points, coming in a thin aluminum frame. Highly acclaimed from buyers, the 27” 1080p screen is currently on-sale for $309.99. For gamers, it’s won the attention of many with impressive detail that’ll keep you locked into the game at all times.

Even with all these reasons why curved monitors are still a major trend, you may still prefer a flat monitor. That’s understandable. We like what we like. If that’s you, you may want to check out the 27” flat 4K gaming monitor for $329.99 or the 32” 4K slim desktop monitor for $639.99.

For gamers, geeks, and home theater enthusiasts, whether you’re after a flat or curved monitor, no one can deny curved monitors are here to stay. Curved monitors have being purchased by gamers, for home offices, for graphic designers and musicians, and for business. They’re some of the most advanced TV and monitor models available in Canada and as we look towards the future, curved monitors are on track to one day replace their flat screen counterparts.

How to Install a Monitor Desk Mount for LCD Monitors

Installing a monitor desk mount can be a big upgrade for your desk’s ergonomics. Look around. Your computer setup is likely one that’s taking up a fair bit of space. You may have wires, books, stacks of paper hanging around and making a mess of things. Your current monitor might be sitting on a stack of books to help it rise to your eye’s comfort level. This is a very disorganized way to keep one’s workstation.

With a monitor desk mount, you lift up your screen off the desk and adjust it according to where you need it. Firstly, this keeps you comfortable, which is important if you’re working long shifts. Secondly, it tidies the place up a bit. You now have more space on your desk, now that your monitor’s been lifted. This can help in keeping your papers organized and keeping yourself razor-focused.

 

PrimeCables specializes in ergonomic office accessories and monitor desk mounts. We have several monitor arms, mounts, and risers which our customers use to elevate their monitor and bring their workstations to the next level. If you suffer from neck strain or eye fatigue, using a mount to adjust your monitor will absolutely help. Adding some height gives your neck a break and can be easily mixed in with other elements of your ergonomic workstation, like if you have a height adjustable desk or chair.

 

For LCD monitors, there are three types of mounts to consider. A monitor riser is a stand-alone unit that rises the monitor to its most comfortable height. If you’re installing a monitor riser, it’s very straightforward. There’s no real monitor riser installation process as it already comes ready to be used. Place it on a desk or table and use it to support your monitor.

 

When discussing desk mounts, there’s also monitor arms which work as an arm to hold up your monitor. A monitor desk mount arm works just like a TV wall mount. A monitor arm screws onto or into the back of the monitor, while the other end attaches to the desk or wall. There are some full-motion monitor desk mounts which can be made to tilt, swivel, and move up and down as needed. These are ideal if you’re looking to adjust positions regularly.

 

There’s also multi-monitor desk mounts, which can be used to support two, three, four, five, or even six monitors. If you’re looking to hold up multiple monitors, you’re going to want a multi-monitor mount and thankfully, there’s no shortage of them out there. Shop single monitor mounts, dual monitor mounts, triple monitor mounts, and more at PrimeCables.

An adjustable monitor arm provides a user the chance to adjust height and angle as needed. Whether you have one monitor, two monitors, or three, a monitor arm can handle everything you need it to. Combine them with a sit-standing height adjustable desk and you’ll really have something special! Depending on your needs, there’s a lot of customizations you can do.

 

If you’re considering buying a monitor arm for yourself, you may wish to know why others have. An adjustable monitor mount ensures a screen can be placed at the right height, depth, and angle. It helps to promote good posture, reduces eye strain, and ensures you don’t need to hunch – ever! Remember, if you’re experiencing any neck, shoulder, or back pain, eye strain, or hip pain related to prolonged sitting or hunching over the desk, an arm can help fix that.

 

Beyond the aesthetically impressive nature of an LCD monitor arm, you should find it a more comfortable setup. If you’re a gamer, this is great for long bouts of button mashing. If it’s for your home office, it’ll help boost productivity and help you work more efficiently. Also, if it’s in a corporate office or in a multi-person workspace, monitor arms like these can be easily adjusted according to personal preference. Unlike the hassles of having a monitor placed on boxes or something that doesn’t look so great, a monitor arm comes with a lot of functionality making it highly adaptable to different environments.

 

Before buying an LCD monitor arm, ensure your purchase choice is VESA compliant with your monitor. Identifying where its mounting holes are, your monitor’s VESA specifications should be indicated on its back. It is worth noting that many Apple products and some lesser known computer brands are not VESA compliant, requiring a special VESA adapter before a mounting arm is able to be used. Also, the weight of your monitor will also have effect. Select the appropriate mount for your workspace, reviewing the different options you have.
