    Hey,

    I got a maxed out 2015 rMBP and I am looking for a curved display in the 27 to 34" range.
    My selection is somewhat limited as I don't want to deal with eBay and I only have 1 online shop in my area that I can trust to buy from.
    This is the selection: http://www.invadeit.co.th/search/curved-monitor/
    I hope it' ok to post 3rd party links here.
    Can someone tell me which is the best display for my rMBP, preferably the best bang for the buck.
    I am not a gamer but I still want 60hz.

    This one seems to make the most sense to me: LG 34" Curved IPS LED 2560x1080 2xHDMI DP (34UC79G-B)

    Edit: Sorry this ended up in the wrong section.

    They're all pretty much the same to be honest, the differences largely come down to ascetics and bezel size.

    Depending on what you want to do with it though... Consider a 27" at 2560x1080, or a 34" at 3440x1440. The ultra-wides are great but they are often a lot bigger than you expect, and a 34" one is huge! But the pixel density diminishes quite quickly past 27" ones, and I find it very noticeable on a 34" 2560x1080.

    Again depending on what you want to do with it. Personally I don't like curved displays and don't think they add anything to me (Design). Do get one and have a play though, I'm sure they're great for certain situations.
