Nice deal! I've been looking for an ultrawide monitor. I would use it mostly for gaming. Sometimes for work (programming mostly). Should I just get this or wait for a deal on the curved one? This is $50 cheaper than the lowest price I've ever seen on the curved counterpart.

Certainly looks curved to me.

It totally is (in the picture at least). Draw a line from the top right corner to the top left corner, a non-curved monitor would follow that line, this image is of a curved one. :/

It's ultrawide... not curve. Need to wear your beer goggle to see this as a hot curve monitor.

It's 100% curved in the pictures. My guess is that they used the wrong picture. Seriously, go do what I suggested and draw a line from one point to the other. It's curved (in the pictures)

I agree it looks like there is a title curve in the picture. But unfortunately it's not curved...

I got the Newegg $300 giftcard with the Onkyo 676, should I get this one or go for the Dell U3415W?

They're the same panel, honestly I'd go for the LG one. I have one at home AND at work, and they're lovely.

While I'm sure it looks beautiful, 5ms latency and 60Hz refresh rate make for a mediocre gaming monitor.

Ugh Frown I know your right, but... but curved heart . I don't know if i can justify spending an extra 175$. The most gaming I do is LOL so 100 hz doesn't really make a difference to me and im connecting it to a Surface Pro.

Hey, not really a noob question at all, I get this a lot!

So, when you're sitting in front of a monitor this size, you physically can't see all of it depending where you sit, having the monitor curved makes it easier to see without shifting your eyes, and eases eye-strain. It also helps you see more of the screen and action on it, so it's very desirable for FPS and other action gamers.

This monitor is great for use if you're doing a lot of email or if you have your monitor a little further from your eyes, and you DO get used to it once you start using it.

After going ultrawide though, you WILL get spoiled. What a world where 27 inches seems tiny!
