Are you looking for any particular aspect ration such as ultrawide? Another EE member asked a similar question for ultrawide 34 curved displays recently.

What kind of tasks will you be using this monitor for or what kind of attributes are important? For example is color accuracy necessary, response time, etc.

PS: I'd love to hear your thoughts on the PixelBook you mentioned. Every generation I look into those since I'm a Linux guy but I never end up getting one.

I think the 21:9 ratio 1440.   Primary use being a Pixelbook is using Google Docs and Gmail. This will replace multiple screens with just one.  The Pixelbook is not for me. It is pretty nice though, almost too nice for what a chromebook does. i7, 16 Gig ram, 500Gig HD.

That other thread is ok.  I am looking to hear what is really good or bad or what to watch out for.

HP ENVY 34 Curved Display ENVY 34-inch

I like the one above. Especially, the hidden web camera which will rise up when you want to use it.

Thanks Jackie. I like the idea of the B&O sound system and camera. But the reviews on that seem a little low compared to others.  They read like HP does not back up their products.

Though I don't personally have any experience with curved monitors or ultrawides, I like LG displays in general and it looks like they have several well reviewed options on Amazon within your price range including one rated as "Amazon's Choice". It also looks like Dell's display is heavily discounted at the moment.

Yes, those two are on my original short list. Are there anything in the specs you can see that may help with a choice (resolution, use with a Pixelbook etc)

Only 11% of all 746 reviews were 3 stars or below.

- Feast your eyes on this: With WQHD 3440 x 1440 resolution, consistently accurate color and a wide viewing angle, you’ll get clear, sharp views every time.

- Get comfortable: Experience optimal eye comfort with a flicker-free screen and ComfortView, which reduces blue light emissions.

- Customize your layout: View multiple applications at a glance in one window with Dell Easy Arrange. Select your layout, then drag and drop apps into your preferred location.

The three features above are specifically what you want for a notebook running Windows OS. For Google Pixelbook, Dell Easy Arrange will not be available.

My experience with Dell monitors are so far so good as they still look good after 5 years.

Both seem fairly similar. If this will be used for gaming the LG has a slight edge. The LG also has USB quick charge. The dell has a longer warranty by 1 year (3 yrs vs 2). The LG I linked lacks any speakers (though other models may have them).

Thank you both for the input.

It looks like Dell
