What is it? This curved desk­top mon­i­tor boasts a 3440x1440 res­o­lu­tion and a 21:9 as­pect ra­tio with a high-con­trast VA panel. It also in­cludes im­pres­sive six-Watt DTS-cer­ti­fied builtin speak­ers and a clever pic­ture-in­pic­ture mode for beam­ing con­tent from other de­vices. When’s it due? Should be April. Why are we ex­cited? Curved isn’t for ev­ery­one, but we like what we see here. The 34-inch dis­play fea­tures low re­flec­tive­ness and a panel re­sponse of eight mil­lisec­onds along with low mo­tion blur (ideal for gamers). HP is also work­ing on a 27-inch model that will re­tail for a more af­ford­able $399 (about £265).
