32" Curved Monitor Recommendations?

I'm looking to buy a 32" curved monitor for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I dropped the question on Twitter as well, but maybe folks will chime in here as well.

I've found some, but I'm curious if folks have recommendations?

Update 2022: A little late here, but I ended up going with this one, LG 34WN80C-B UltraWide Monitor 34” 21:9 Curved WQHD (3440 x 1440) IPS Display

For gaming or for work? Makes a big difference as to what is the best bang for the buck!

For example I don’t game on my PC (well I play satisfactory) so I could get away with a 75hz 4K display, but if you wanted to play CoD / battlefield etc that frame rate would be bad.

Also are you doing graphic design work when colour coverage and accuracy is super important? Yet again that affects what panel type / price range you are looking in.

I can highly recommend the Xiaomi 34" curved Mi Gaming monitor.

Its got Freesync, 3440x1440 resolution, 144hz refresh rate, 121% sRGB and is among the cheaper ones on the market. Not to mention it looks really nice, has small bezels, and even supports second inputs as PIP and/or split screen two inputs. I recently got it mainly for web dev, but also a bit of gaming.

Replaced 2x 1080p 27" monitors and am not looking back! If you can find a nice deal on it for blackfriday / cyber monday definitely get it!

I use: Samsung U32R592 32Inch Curved UHD 4K. Have had it a year and okay with Xbox series X and use for work (developer) I think it's only 60fps but haven't had issue with any games and was a nice price.

I've got ViewSonic 24" LED - VX2458-C-mhd since summer 2020 and I haven't problems. Maybe the 32" is also good!
