    No, after using curved for a few years I decided to get a curved Acer G-Sync monitor. That one was absolutely amazing but sadly the monitor was defective and I had to swap it out for an even more expensive non curved G-Sync monitor. I'd still prefer curved over flat.

    I like mine too,

    I have Samsung C24FG73 and its just right. nvm 144HZ and extra Samsung lightboost - no trailing or tinting or overshots. :D

    I'm ~50-75cm away from monitor., if I had more room I would keep C27FG73, but it was too close and I could see pixels time to time..

    Well there is also a fancy C27HG70 - 1440p , HDR.. This would be perfect, even at this distance, but its a bit too expensive.

    No they are not, especially for ultrawide 34"+ .
    The reason it did not work for tv's was that you had to sit dead center and it is a pain to hang a curved tv on a wall.
    A monitor you sit right in front of anyway and there is only one user.
    I got the asus pg348q and the curve is perfect when sitting about 1m away from it looks like it have no curve, without a curve the corners would be to far away.
