Ultra widescreen is all the rage on PC now, so of course everyone is getting curved screens. I can't stand them. To be fair, I've only looked at curved TVs. But I don't see why it would be any better with a monitor. It looks skewed, no matter what distance I stand at.
Just watched this YT video. Didn't change my mind. I feel like 16x9 is still superior for the majority of what one does on a PC. But I might try demoing some at Best Buy again.
