Do curved monitors offer any benefits over regular monitors outside of vidya gaems? I want to upgrade from my dual monitor setup and I'm thinking about getting two 25 inch 1440p monitors but I might get one for productivity and one for gaymen instead

Not really. Just a gimmick because "muh viewing angles". IPS suffers being shitty to use for curved monitors so you'll probably end up having to RMA a curved IPS anyway. Meanwhile TN can work well if curved but if you fell for the IPS meme then nevermind.

Dont. Just do a surround setup with regular monitors. If you want a cheap, decent 1440p monitor, the Acer G247HYU smidp 23.8-inch IPS is a great deal at around $200. It has lower latency of an IPS monitor than other cheap ones ive seen, 4ms

I'm looking at getting the Dell U2515U, it can be tilted so it can be used in portrait mode as well which I want

The only benefit is that it's pricier, oh wait...

I actually own one in contrast to everyone else in this thread. An LG34UC88. The curve makes the edges and corners of the screen come a bit closer to you and makes your eyes see the panel at less of an angle. It's very comfortable to use for gaming and work. It's like having two high resolution 4:3 panels without besel.

People hate them because the good, large ones are a bit expensive and they want to feel better about their shitty dual(different brand) monitor setup.

I'm talking about curved 16:9 panels, not ultrawide. This is the model from the OP
