There’s no denying that two screens are typically better than one. But what if one screen was the size of two monitors?
Ultrawide monitors have a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is close to what you would see on a movie screen. How is that better? Well, those who have used a dual monitor setup in the past may remember the slight coloration differences between the two monitors or the “break” that you get in the center. Ultrawide monitors allow a fully seamless viewing experience. They also provide you with an easier way of managing multiple windows. Many people like to have their email, browser, and CRM application open at the same time. With an ultrawide browser and the Window’s Snap feature, you can have all windows open simultaneously, side-by-side, without taking up all your screen real estate.
Another major benefit of using one ultrawide monitor is the convenience of being able to change the settings for one monitor only (brightness, resolution, screen size). Ultrawide screens also have the added benefit of coming in a “curved” version, which makes looking at a screen more comfortable for your peripheral vision.
Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference. However, ultrawide monitors are an excellent way of staying organized and feeling comfortable.
