As you can see, when it comes to these 21:9 monitors, one size does not fit all. There are tons of options out there. Finding out which one is right for you just depends on your needs and your budget. Fortunately we have categorized everything to help make the process easier for you. We've included budget options for those that aren't looking to spend big bucks just yet, we have high res options for mid-level users who appreciate the bump in resolution over full HD, and 4k or 144hz options for higher level users looking to spend a premium to get the best performance possible. Last but not least we have our "best of the best" option, which I believe is self explanatory.

This category lists the best of the best, and it doesn't come cheap. This category is where you find everything you'd ever want. 3440x1440p resolution, over 100hz refresh rate, G-SYNC, 34 inches, and perfect color accuracy.
At the very top of our list we have our more affordable options as we suspect most people will be going for something in the price range of 100-300 dollars rather than 1000 dollars like what you can expect to pay with higher end options. (QWHD, 144hz refresh rate, 34 inches, etc) Moving down you'll find functionality and cost begin to move up, but don't fear. Sometimes it's fun just to look, even if you don't end up buying.

In-depth Breakdown

If you're not into simple lists, allow me to enumerate and go into detail on our top picks for each category.

Budget Ultrawide Monitor

LG 25UM58-P 25-Inch 21:9 UltraWide IPS Monitor with Screen Split

So you don't got a lot of spend, nor do you have a lot of time to juggle between several options. Fine, let's keep it simple.

It's 25 inches, 2560x1080, IPS panel, 21:9, and while it's not curved, it's still a very eye catching piece of technology.

Taking a look at reviews it's clear that while this is a barebones monitor (no fancy features, no speakers, not a curved monitor, no g-sync or freesync etc) it's got a solid quality to it, and the most important aspect (the screen) is very much up to par with more expensive models. This monitor also supports vesa mounting, so you have the freedom to get fancy and mount this thing in a floating configuration. With 4.5 stars and coming from a trusted brand like LG, you can't really go wrong with this option.

As you can see this is our only budget option for ultrawide monitors because there's really nothing else out there at this price point that competes with the LG 25UM58-P ultrawide monitor.

What Type of Ultrawide Monitor To Get?

If you still haven't come to a conclusion, stick around, as we will proceed to go into depth about every category we've listed in our chart up above. There's a lot of variability in monitors, so it's understandably difficult to come to a conclusion. It's not as simple as a harddrive where all you really need to look at is speed and storage.

When it comes to monitors, there are myriad variables such as contrast ratio, brightness levels, input delay, response time, pixel pitch, refresh rate, resolution, mounting options, size, screen ratio, etc. There are full HD monitors, 1440p monitors, 4k monitors, 144hz monitors, gaming monitors, 21:9 monitors, ultrawide monitors, g-sync/freesync monitors. It seems to never end, really. Seeing as a monitor is generally a long term purchase, something you expect to be happy with for years, we feel like it's important to take the time to do your homework, because it'll really pay off at the end of the day.

If you're primarily looking to get an ultrawide monitor for gaming purposes, perhaps you'd be more interested in higher refresh rates (like a 144hz monitor) over higher resolutions. As any competitive gamer will tell you, FPS matters. You'll have a massive advantage over someone playing on 60hz. You're essentially receiving over double the visual information. Images are smoother, faster, more response, and give you the edge you need in a quality ultrawide gaming monitor.

What if you're not into gaming monitors? Okay, well then resolution might be more important to you. If you want to watch movies in crisp 1440p or QWHD (4k), then you're not going to care much for 144hz since movies aren't anywhere near that FPS.

Made of money? Then have it all. Our list includes a massive 34 inch, 4k, over 100hz monitor. You get the best of all options, except for cost of course. This thing will set you back quite a bit.

Budget Ultrawide Monitors

Not everyone is willing to dish out hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to pick up one of these ultrawide monitors. Perhaps you just built a new PC and don't exactly have 800 dollars to throw around at one new PC peripheral. No worries, it's totally fine. There's a lot of great, affordable ultrawide monitors. As you can probably expect, there are some compromises. While the bang for your buck is great, these are still rather small ultrawide monitors at just 25 inches. For an ultrawide, that's rather short.

On top of that, most of the options out there only limit you to 60hz and 2560x1080p (full HD) resolution. For me, the worst part is that none of these cheap 21:9 monitors are curved. That said, it blows me away that you can pick up a brand spanking new HD, 21:9, ultrawide monitor for under 200 dollars. It really is fantastic. Sure the functionality and features aren't all there, but you can't go wrong spending your money here. For under 200 dollars, why not treat yourself to a new ultrawide monitor.

Great Ultrawide Monitors

If you have a little bit more money to spend, around 300-400 dollars, you'll be happy to hear that you'll be awarded the privilege of having a massive ultrawide monitor, upwards of 34 inches. Can you believe that? A curved, ultrawide, 34 inch monitor sitting on your desk. If you have the extra money available, you should absolutely look into this category of options. You' won't regret having a bigger sized ultrawide monitor that curves.

It's going to be much appreciated in everything you do on a PC. Whether it be watching TV, movies, playing video games, or doing productive work, you're going to appreciate the extra size, and that beautiful curve is only going to increase your immersion. It draws you into the world of your favorite tv shows, movies, and video games. Playing a game at 21:9 on one of these bad boys is an unforgettable experience. 21:9, curved monitors are some of the best gaming monitors from an immersion perspective.

Best Ultrawide Monitors

If you're reading this section, you might just be pretty serious about this ultrawide monitor thing. If you're looking for the whole package, look no further. You're going to be shopping in the best of the best section. If you have the money for it, we're talking upwards of 1000 dollars, then first of all, congratulations on the success. If you've got the cash for it, you will be handsomely rewarded.

Every ultrawide monitor in this section is a massive 34 inches, and almost all of them feature that beautiful curve. If you're really serious about competitive gaming, I would strongly recommend the 144hz option. There's not many 144hz ultrawides out there, so only one made the list. If you're really into watching movies, TV, or being productive, then you might be interested in picking up a 4k model. These ultrawide monitors pack a QWHD (3440x1440) resolution. Your eyes will thank you dearly. This resolution affords you the screen real estate to multi-tasking extremely efficiently on one screen. No need for two screens when you can have one epic one.

Are Ultrawide Monitors Worth It?

I've seen some variation of this question thrown around a lot. Is ultrawide good for gaming, better for gaming. Is ultrawide good for movies, youtube, tv, etc. Ultrawide for photo editing, programming, productivity. Why ultrawide monitor? At the end of the day, you could argue it comes down to personal preference, but I really do believe that ultrawides lend themselves to an overall more enhanced experience in everything you do. A massive, curved, ultrawide with QWHD resolution is going to give you the screen real estate to multi-task seamlessly with just one monitor. It something that's really going to take your productivity to the next level when it comes to programming, photo-editing in photoshop, or even writing.

You can pull up multiple references, images, or guides while you do your work. It's honestly a no-brainer if you're trying to be a more efficient worker.

Ultrawide monitors look good, they improve your play-time experience, they often give you a competitive edge over other gaming monitors, and they make you vastly more productive. It's a win, win, win situation.

Addressing Common Questions

Ultrawide vs Normal Monitor

Okay taking a quick at the core specs of the average ultrawide vs normal monitor we see that ultrawides, as you might has guessed, have a much wider (more cinematic) aspect ratio of 21:9 as opposed to 16:9. This is very ideal for movie watching and games that support this ratio. It gives things a very cinematic, grand, immersive feel. Also, it doesn't hurt that ultrawide monitors look so damn good.

Typically normal monitors have a resolution of 1920x1080. All ultrawide monitors are at least 2560x1080, so immediately you get a significant boost in resolution which is important for every aspect of using a PC. In conclusion, ultrawides have higher resolution, give a more cinematic/immersive feel, and look amazing compared to normal monitors.

Ultrawide Monitors for Work/Coding/Video Editing

As mentioned throughout this article, ultrawide monitors offer an unparalled level of productivity boosting functionality, especially if you side with one of the more expensive ultrawide monitors in this list. For me, the answer is clear on this. Simply put a massive 21:9, curved screen with a crystal clear resolution is going to be fantastic for getting any kind of work done.

It doesn't matter if you're writing a document, working in excel, video editing in premiere pro, or programming a new app. The benefits of an ultrawide monitor are going to come in handy in all of those instances. For example, perhaps you're working in photoshop and you're drawing a digital image based on a reference picture. You can keep that picture open right to the side while you work, extremely useful.

If you're programming something, you can have a list of guides and resources, or other material right next to where you're working. A simple glance is all you need to get the information you desire, rather than having to open and close several documents and web pages in the middle of your work.
