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.

Top 5 Benefits to an Ergonomic Sit-Stand Desk you Don’t want to Forget

Back pain in Canada is responsible for more than 26 million lost work days every year. We don’t often associate back pain with sitting but as it turns out, working in an office can come with significant pressure put on our frames and poor posture.

The only real solution is to surround a person with ergonomic and personalized office equipment to ensure your body’s appropriately supported. Here are the top 5 benefits we believe are worth considering with an ergonomic desk.

Increases productivity.

You may not believe it but a sit-standing desk can improve your productivity in small and large ways alike. As less pressure sits on your frame, this keeps your mind thinking faster and keeps your body engaged. Whether you’re sitting or standing, you never have to leave your desk. You’ll remain locked into your work no matter what’s happening in the workplace.

Customizable to your body.

When you have a desk you can move up and down, adjusting its height as needed, you have power to personalize it according to how your body’s feeling. When you want to sit, sit. Alternatively, if you want to stand, stand. Find the right fit to your needs and adjust it throughout your work day.

Comfort to the nines.

When we’re discussing the benefits of ergonomic sit-stand desks, you’ll notice rather quickly how better you feel not having to remain sitting for consecutive hours in a day. Your body’s comfort level will increase, allowing you to switch positions without walking away from your desk. If you’re easily fatigued sitting in a chair all day, this is a great way to increase energy.

Save money.

When you’re unable to work because of an injury, when you have to call in sick, or when you’re having a rough day where you simply cannot give your best effort, all of this adds up to wasted money. You’ll actually do more and make more with an ergonomic desk you can arrange as needed.

Health benefits.

Prolonged sitting puts a person at increased cardiovascular risk. The health benefits of sit-standing desks are well understood, reducing symptoms of musculoskeletal stress, reducing lower back pain, alleviating neck and shoulder pain, keeping joints in a neutral position, resting the arms, and minimizing mental fatigue. Adjust the height as needed!

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.

Did you Know Sit-Stand Desks can Help you Lose Weight and Stay Skinny – it can!

A common question received regarding sit-standing desks is whether they can really help someone lose weight or not. Recent research in the Applied Ergonomics journal helped shine a light on the potential of sit-stand desks.

It’s no secret that looking at a standing desk, it’s promoting someone to stand and create movement. The more we move, the more calories we burn – theoretically speaking. Many people believe that height adjustable desks can work to help office workers keep their bodies engaged while they remain sedentary.

Being sedentary is well understood to raise the risks of heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and premature death. Some research published has even associated prolonged sitting with up to 430,000 deaths a year worldwide. Also, when we sit, it interferes with our ability to regulate blood pressure and metabolize fat as well.

A recent study amalgamated the results of 53 studies examining the benefits of sit-stand desks, motivated to find the truth behind the popular ergonomic office furniture. Some believe it helps with weight loss while others dispute the claim. The study examined sit-standing desks across six categories – behaviour, physiological, work performance, psychological, discomfort, and posture. The results show that although people using sit-stand desks tended to spend more time standing than individuals using regular desks, it did not necessarily result in weight loss every time.

The health benefits of sit-stand desks are numerous, including relieving low back pain relief and decreasing blood pressure overall. That said, when it comes to weight loss, the results just aren’t there to conclude every person who uses ergonomic desks will experience weight loss. Although some will, others won’t. What the study also showed was that sit-stand desks did improve comfort level and behaviour tremendously. If you’re a worker who is concerned about your comfort and/or who wants to attempt to use it as a weight loss strategy, the researchers of this paper are not necessarily saying not to do it. In other words, go for it!

The big takeaway of the Applied Ergonomics study is ultimately that someone who has an ergonomic desk is not going to magically lose weight. In the same way that someone switching to healthy dieting is not magically going to melt off the pounds. There are several factors which go into weight loss, any of which can affect a person. As proper usage differs from person to person in an office setting, using your sit-stand desk the correct way at the suggested dosages likely does produce a difference in weight loss.

Should I use a Surge Protector to Support my Gaming Station – we say yes!
