    Does anyone who has owned both care to share their experience as a rFactor2 player?

    I'm upgrading my old 60Hz monitor and am considering curved. Where I live there is no where for me to go and see one for myself.

    Curved implies a wide aspect ratio, which is good. And even if you're considering flat vs curved with the same aspect ratios, and assuming big enough to be useful, curved is probably better for a single screen.

    Personally I don't consider any point to curved with a 27" screen. You would need it uncomfortably close for the curve to provide any benefit.

    Thank you. 27" is the size I'm almost sure to get. I've also read glare can be an issue with curved screens so am a bit worried about lighting.
