LG 34UC97 or Crossover 434?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Wanna get a new monitor- I like the ultra wide LG but the 43" Crossover is much bigger overall and cheaper on eBay. But it might be too big to place on table for normal computer use?

I was also thinking of waiting for the Monoprice 34" curved IPS for $499.

This is mainly for graphics, movies and a bit of gaming.

Thanks.

There is never "monitor too big". Get the largest monitor your workspace can accommodate. It is possible that one have space for 34" but not for 40"; unlikely, but possible. Then, I still wont recommend 34" ultrashorty. 32" UHD would be much better choice, and they run around $400 on ebay. In a word: ultrashort displays are ridiculous waste of money.

If you give gaming the #1 priority, go for the 21:9 ultrawide. But if you think the desktop and productivity work is more important, go for the 43" 4k.

So graphic design will not benefit from a slight curved screen?

I was just mainly talking about the desktop real estate more than anything. You will have more space to work with on a 4k resolution with no scaling on a large display like that.

If you wanted curved, doesn't Samsung make curved 40" 4k TVs? I am pretty sure they do 4k @ 60Hz, as well as 4:4:4 chroma. From a couple reviews I even read, the input for being a TV isn't even that bad.
