help me pick the ultimate monitor for my office (34" curved ultrawide?)

Hi I was thinking about getting a second monitor so I can have a dual display on my work computer, and I have been reading about it and I think a better solution is to get a large curved monitor, maybe a 34" curved ultrawide monitor that way I can have two windows of data open but only have one monitor in use. For work I do lots of graphs / excel sheets and compare data. I would like to spend less then $1000 so what is the best suggestion anyone has?

I was looking at the following monitor, but with only one user review I figured maybe there is a better option? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/philips-brilliance-x-line-349x7fjew-34-led-ultrawide-hd-freesync-monitor-high-gloss-white-with-silver-chrome-stand/6148908.p?skuId=6148908

For monitors I always look for BenQ first. I've never had an issue with any of them. One BenQmonitor I've had and still use has lasted 10+ years without any signs of slowing down or deteriation.
The BenQ PD3200U is 32 inch and around the $1000 mark depending on where you live (US$800, AUD$1270). Its 4K if that is a factor for you.
The Acer XR341CK is 34 inch for around the same price, but not as good as the BenQ. Mentioning just to get the size you specified though the 2inchs won't make much difference when the BenQ has a higher resolution, 3,840 x 2,160 compared to the Acer 3,440 x 1,440.
My money would be on the BenQ.

I've personally used and loved this monitor. I Have trouble with some colors, so I cannot speak about the color grade from my use, but the monitor has been an all time favorite of mine. For gaming it was a little lack luster, but for all of my productive uses, I couldn't have been happier.

I Can't speak for the monitor Rartemass recommended, but I have been a fan of BenQ for awhile, and might give that one a shot myself.
