3 Best Curved Monitors for Office Work
If you are looking for a monitor for your home office, widescreen curved monitors are your best pick. These monitors offer an immersive view, and the curved screen eliminates distortion. The widescreen panel ensures easy multitasking since you can open multiple windows together. That said, curved IPS monitors are not so popular.
The best part about IPS monitors is that they bring the best of both worlds. You get a good viewing angle and excellent color reproduction.
So, if you are looking for the best-curved monitors for your office work, here are our top recommendations for the same. Let’s get going, shall we? But before that,
1. HP 34f Curved Monitor

Ports: 2 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x USB 3.0-B, 3 x USB-A
HP curved monitor’s advantage is its size. The massive 34-inch screen and the 16:9 aspect ratio gives you enough space to open 2-3 windows side-by-side. And well, it almost gives the impression of a dual-screen setup. The panel is bright, and the WQHD resolution translates into sharp and detailed content. Though it’s a little expensive compared to standard FHD monitors, the features and performance make it a worthy investment.
The HP 34f monitor without bezels looks sleek. You won’t find the typical black edges on the sides. You can adjust the position and switch to portrait mode. It lacks height adjustment, but you can tackle it with a monitor arm.

You get a duo of HDMI and DisplayPort connectors and a few USB 3.0 ports for connecting peripherals for connectivity. This HP monitor misses out on USB-C charging and speakers despite the price.
