CURVED BENQ GAMING MONITOR WRAPS FORTNITE ROUND YOUR HEAD

Feeling like your gaming sessions aren’t quite immersive enough? Maybe you’ll benefit from a gaming monitor like the BenQ EX3203R, which gives its 31.5-inch display a deep 1800R curve to effectively wrap it around your head.

The idea is to draw you into whatever’s on screen, be it your current favourite game, the latest episode of whatever you’re binge-watching on Netflix – even your accounting spreadsheets.

There’s more to it than the curve, though: a sharp 1440p resolution for crisp and clear detail; a swift 4ms response time to minimise input lag; a maximum 144Hz refresh rate for buttery smooth motion; FreeSync 2 (which allows the monitor to dynamically adjust frame rates to match whatever is being input, in order to avoid stuttering and frame-tearing); HDR for detailed, natural-looking lighting; and eye-care technology to reduce the strain of long viewing times.

The monitor comes with two HDMI inputs, plus DisplayPort, USB-C and USB 3.1 connectivity, has a height-adjustable stand, and its extremely narrow side bezels mean you can easily line up two or three of them in an ultra-wide array.

The EX3203R is on sale now, priced at around $800.

Key features:
•    31.5-inch 2560 x 1440 LED screen
•    HDR support
•    3000:1 native contrast
•    144Hz refresh rate
•    4ms response time
•    2 x HDMI, DisplayPort, USB-C, USB 3.1 sockets

GadgetNET says: Look out for a full review here soon, but on paper, this monitor looks like a great deal for gamers, designers, videographers and telly addicts alike.
