If you would prefer to make your own decision, here is the list of all of our curved monitor reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. Most monitors are good enough to please most people, and the things we fault monitors on are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.

1.Pixio PX279 Prime
- 27 inch FHD 1920 x 1080p Resolution IPS HDR Professional Esports Gaming Monitor
- IPS Panel, HDR Ready and 400nit Brightness for rich and detailed contrasts
Of late, there has been no letup in the refresh rate battle. Though 144 Hz gaming monitors are almost a dime a dozen, there are plenty of faster screens to be had too. 240 Hz displays are becoming commonplace, and the bleeding edge is now at 360 Hz.
When the word “commonplace” creeps into the narrative, it brings an inevitable drop in prices. More competition equals better value. Pixio embraces this economic inevitability with a host of high-performance panels that sell for reasonable money while competing with some of the best gaming monitors specs-wise. The Pixio PX279 Prime targets speed demons with its 240 Hz refresh rate, 1080p resolution and Adaptive-Sync in an IPS panel for under low price.back to menu ↑
2.ASUS 24″ 1080P
- 24 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with an overclockable 165Hz (supports 144Hz) rapid refresh rate and 0.5ms (GTG) response time
- NVIDIA G-SYNC technology removes stutter and screen tearing for the smoothest gaming experience
The ASUS VG248QE is one of the most popular and top-rated 24″ 1080p 144Hz 1ms gaming monitors. However, there are better and more affordable alternatives available.
The ASUS VG248QE response time speed amounts to only 1ms, which is quick enough to eliminate almost all visible ghosting and trailing of fast-moving objects in video games.
While the viewing angles of 170/160 degrees cause the image to degrade in color and contrast when you are looking at the screen from skewed angles, the image will stay intact as long as you’re sitting directly in front of it.back to menu ↑
3.Alienware 25 AW2521HF
- Experience the best available in IPS Technology with native refresh rates of up to 240Hz
- A true 1ms response time blasts away ghosting and blurs for clear images with no artificial tricks needed
Speed is key for gaming monitors, and the Alienware 25 is among the fastest we’ve seen yet, in terms of input lag and refresh rate. This 25-inch 1080p monitor boasts an input-lag measure of just a millisecond at its peak refresh, which helps justify its list price.
(It’s often discounted a fair bit on Dell.com.) Plus, the panel’s 240Hz refresh rate will please all but the most discriminating esports types, who will thrill to its fluidity for fast-twitch action games. Its color performance (notably, for movies) doesn’t impress, and its G-Sync Compatible adaptive-sync feature didn’t prove quite as silky-smooth as native G-Sync can be. But for the Alienware-loyal and the frame-rate-obsessed, it’s got the goods.back to menu ↑
4.ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM
- 27-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) Fast IPS gaming monitor with ultrafast 280Hz refresh rate (overclocked) designed for professional gamers and immersive gameplay
- ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC) technology enables ELMB together with G-SYNC Compatible, eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates
The ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM is an excellent gaming monitor. The 280Hz refresh rate delivers exceptional motion handling, with extremely fast response time, low input lag, and an optional black frame insertion feature. Unlike most monitors on the market, the black frame insertion feature can even be used simultaneously with the variable refresh rate feature.
Like most of ASUS’ TUF lineup, it also has outstanding ergonomics, a simple design, and great build quality. It’s a great monitor for most uses, but the low-resolution screen might disappoint some users, as it’s not as good for office use or for multitasking, but overall, this is a great monitor for any usage. Unfortunately, it’s not a good choice for console gamers, as it has an extremely high input lag at 60Hz.back to menu ↑
5.Sceptre IPS 27-Inch
- Wide Viewing Angles: Wide viewing angles keep all the action sharply in sight from almost any viewing position while gaming on large monitors or dual-display setup.
- Fast Response Time: Playing fast action games and watching action adventure movies always require fast and accurate pixel response from an LED. With quick response times, ghosting and blurring are reduced so the user can enjoy the display with clarity and precision.
High quality graphics are super important when you’re playing and the gaming monitors sometimes sold with PCs are pretty rubbish. You may also want to use a monitor alongside a gaming laptop.
The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.
When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the refresh rate is 75 Hz. This is a 1080p Sceptre monitor and can run at 75 Hz.back to menu ↑
Best Curved Monitors – It has very good picture quality thanks to its 1440p resolution, with good out-of-the-box color accuracy and an outstanding SDR color gamut. It also feels very well-built, but its aggressive 1000R curve might take you some time to get used to.
