So I have been thinking about getting an Ultrawide for a while now and im unsure which to go for.  I am looking for an all rounder.

 

1. Bigger the Better

2. good for Productivity

3. Good for Gaming

4. High Resolution

 

I spend most of my day on the screen and really want the best one i can find

Given that it has to be good for productivity, as well, curves are pretty much out, especially the 1000R of the Samsung Odyssey line. Even with a relatively slight 1500R curve on my 34", I can see distortion at the edges.

I have a LG 34 inch Ultra wide that’s 1440p. It’s only 60Hz, but I really like it. Resolution wise I’d just go 1440p, it looks good enough in my opinion. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

That's not that big of a problem really. I do UX design on a X34P Predator all day long and I'm ok with it. I think colour accuracy is much more important than having the screen flat.

What graphics card do you use? if Nvidia, you might wanna get something with a Ultimate G-Sync module, 120hz or higher, 3440x1440 or higher, true 10 bit, and decent brightness for HDR content. IPS panels will give you a bit of a glow on the edges during dark scenes but very good angles, VA will give you good contrast. I'm personally waiting for a mini LED ultrawide from Asus. They've released one that is awesome, but 16:9 aspect ratio.

Well, sure, it's a 1900R curve, so it's more flat than my panel is, and I said myself that that was mostly okay except for some noticeable distortion at the edges. A 1000R curve is a whole other beast.

I've been looking for a flat Ultrawide for a while but the best I got is 75Hz from LG. Where's one HP at 144Hz on the horizon, but it needs a review in terms of color.

I have both a flat and curved and I don't notice any difference.

im not sure a curve would bother me too much i think i would prefer Performance over a flat screen.  so accurate colour reproduction and a good refresh rate im leaning towards a LG 38wn95c-w

LG's curved ultrawides are typically only slightly curved. With 1800R it more pleasand than distracting. The LG 34GN850-B and 34GP83A-B are really good options for gaming and productivity.
