Deciding between a curved or a flat monitor is already a hard-enough choice, but add to that equation several curvatures like 1000R, 1500R, and 1800R that you’ll invariably encounter during your research, and you find yourself in a soup. Just getting more confused than when you started this journey. So, let’s simplify this, shall we?
If you’re targeting near-perfect immersion in games or movies and shows (or all three) and/or love huge, expansive displays that span your entire field of view, a 1000R curved monitor is undoubtedly the best choice.
Here are 5 compelling reasons that make considering a 1000R Curved Monitor a no-brainer:
1. Unmatched Immersion
The human field of view isn’t flat. It’s curved (at 1000R). Hence, even when using a large, flat monitor, there are some areas of the screen that just won’t fit into your field of vision naturally. The real world invariably intrudes into the periphery of your vision. However, a 1000R curved monitor matches your field of view, curves and all – making it the ideal choice for best-in-class immersion.
Going with a 1000R curved display helps you ensure that the picture on your monitor envelops you – putting you right at the center of all the action.
2. Better Viewing Angles
A flat monitor’s edges are bound to sit at a sharper angle to your eyes compared to the center of your screen. You’ll often encounter distortion to either the picture, its color, or both, at the edges of a flat display.
On the other hand, a 1000R curved monitor brings those edges in towards you – making an angle closer to 90-degrees even at the extreme edges.
A curved monitor offers much better viewing angles, making the picture on your screen pop, without leaving the edges looking washed out. That’s not all. Better viewing angles also minimize reflections on the edges of your monitor as you’re sitting almost perpendicular to the entire display.
3. Superior Viewing Comfort
Whether you’re gaming or having an extended Netflix binge session, caring for your eyes is paramount. A flat monitor’s edges will be much farther away from your eyes compared to the center of the display. The problem compounds as you go up in screen size.
What does this mean? Well, your eyes have to adjust to accommodate a change in viewing distance as you glance across the screen. Researchers have found that this constant change in focal length is tied to symptoms of eye fatigue like headaches and soreness in the eye.
Curved monitors alleviate this problem to an extent because both the edges and center of a 1000R curved monitor sit nearly equidistant to your eyes. Researchers at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom confirmed this phenomenon with a study. Participants gaming on a 1000R curved display exhibited fewer symptoms of eye fatigue compared to a monitor with a more gradual curve (1800R). You can watch the full study here.
4. Enhanced Field of View
There’s a hard limit to how large a flat monitor could be before you have no choice but to move back to accommodate it within your field of view. However, that’s not exactly an option when it comes to sitting at your table and watching a movie or playing the latest games.
A 1000R curved monitor helps you cover much more area of the screen naturally as it matches the curvature of your vision. Not only does this enhance immersion, but it also means you can take in additional screen real estate at the same viewing distance.
5. Excellent Build Quality
Achieving a sharp curve like a 1000R curved monitor showcases is no easy feat. It requires a combination of premium materials, quality workmanship, and best-in-class engineering to make it happen. That’s why 1000R curved monitors, like the ones in MSI’s ARTYMIS lineup, are much more likely to feature a better, more robust build quality.
