Lol. 32 are too big for my setup. Need something smaller. And what is the benefit of curved?
1) Cool
2) it surrounds you (sort of)
I'm going crazy, wanna come along?

1 ultra wide isn't as big as 2 32" screens, and very expensive in 4K
But if smaller is fine and don't.mind the resolution then it's probably even better

Yup I did!
I sit by a computer screen from 9am to 6pm every day, and I recently bought 2 samsung 32" 4K curved monitors, they are absolutely worth every penny!!
I got them at Costco for $309 each and they are now for $359
https://www.costco.com/samsung-32%22-class-4k-uhd-curved-monitor.product.100512595.html

With 2 flat screens you can angle them slightly for the curved screen effect. I think I would find 2 curved screens to be too much curvature.

So, with all that in mind, what'yall think about

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073FHWTPL?tag=rtings-mn-r-20&ie=UTF8 -- Wide screen

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088BC5HMM?tag=rtings-mn-r-20&ie=UTF8 -- 27 inch non 4k

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078GRM2MV?tag=rtings-mn-p-20&ie=UTF8 -- 4k

Are they any good?  Between the last two, is 4k worth $100 more?  Does it make sense to get one and one?  (Probably not)

Thanks.

My personal opinion is that higher than Full HD 1080p is a waste on a 27" screen (maybe unless you are doing things like graphics which require higher resolution). Once you get to 32" then you need more to avoid graininess. I upgraded everyone in my office from 22-24" to 27" and they all love it!

Sorry for the double post, but I'm including an updated flyer with new contact info and more pics

Also adding for background, I have no relation to the business -- but contacted them when I was looking for a discounted Aeron... they usually only do Saturday pop up sales but they specifically are adding Sunday hours this week to accommodate the frum community (since I couldnt make it for the Shabbos sales...) so it would be great win-win if dansdeals readers can take advantage of great deals and show appreciation to the business for trying to accommodate the frum community

walk-ins welcome

I tried many Monitor mounts and have had a hard time finding something of quality.
I came across the  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077TC3RZ4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  in particular this company, they seem to have some decent stuff. One downside is that the screens wont go to low,  if your VESA mount is low on your screen it might not go that low.

Mounts have a hard time with large screens.
When you swivel it can feel like moving a truck, it can sometimes be to tight or to loose, it's hard to get a balance, I found this one to be pretty good at it.

It should have a screw that you turn to adjust the tension.

Dosnt always work that well.
If you tighten in to much it won't move and loose send it into a free fall.
You need something balanced. Most arms just don't do a good job for heavy large screens.

1440p is the way to go, definitely makes a discernable difference on 27".

I find that the mount I use does well and would probably be easier to keep in congruence off a pole than with the hydraulics mounted directly on the desk.

Use a good headset and speak softly.
