As with every monitor, size is an issue. Fortunately, curved displays are available in sizes ranging from 24 to 49 inches. Therefore, even if your workspace is as little as a closet, you may locate a curved monitor that meets your demands. One advantage of a compact monitor is that it takes up little space on your desk, leaving plenty of room for other objects.

We prefer to elevate my monitors to almost eye level. One early lesson we learned was that monitors (even small ones) mounted on wide V-shaped supports do not fit comfortably on our sleek, elegant risers. The base on the majority of our curved monitors is 18 to 19 inches broad and 6 to 8 inches deep, necessitating some creative solutions, such as using the lowest setting on an adjustable standing desk riser.

A larger monitor can give ample screen space, allowing you to simultaneously open and view many documents and/or programs. Additionally, it can enhance the immersive experience when playing games or watching films.

The resolution, refresh rate, and response time is also critical considerations, which is why we include them in the specifications for each curved monitor.

How do we select?

We’ve reviewed and written about televisions, technology, and entertainment devices for a variety of online sites, including Tom’s Guide, Bob Vila’s, The Spruce, Realtor.com, Apartment Therapy, and The Daily Beast. This list contains curved displays that we’ve personally examined and those that come highly recommended by industry experts. Additionally, we searched through user evaluations and other reputable sources to identify the best selections across a range of price points, styles, and sizes. The models below were then chosen for their design, performance, and value.
