Corsair has revealed a new curved gaming ultrawide with a unique quirk. Known as the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED,this new monitor is a 45 inch 3440 x 1440 240Hz ultrawide featuring an OLED panel from LG. But the quirk is its ability to bend into a curved state.

Ignoring the nonstarter of its steep price for a moment, yeah, that resolution is awful for that screen size, which is a shame because I like the fact that it's bendable. One of my biggest issues with curved monitors these days is too narrow of a curve radius (i.e. too much curve). Being OLED would help with color uniformity (which LCD ultrawides are notoriously terrible with) at the cost of always-lingering worries about burn-in.

 

Last month, I upgraded from my 34" 3440x1440 to a 38" 3840x1600 (will probably post more details about this tedious upgrade later in another thread) and those two sizes and resolutions essentially have the same pixel density, so at the same viewing distance, the 38" just feels like a nice dose of more screen space in my face.

 

45" 3440x1440 has a pixel density that's a fairly close match for my 55" 4K TV which is on a wall mount. I sit about 29" from my monitor and 39" from my TV when I have the wall mount arms extended. I wouldn't have another 10" to push a 45" ultrawide monitor further back on my desk, but even if I did, a screen that far away from my face loses its immersive qualities which negates the benefit of the curve and also doesn't feel suitable for work.
