Do-it-yourself curved: New gaming monitor with a unique feature attracts a lot of attention



If you’re considering getting a new screen, you may well be faced with deciding whether you want a flat screen or a curved one. Corsair makes this decision for you and lets you switch between the two variants as you please – with a monitor that is unique to date.

The Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 presented at Gamescom is currently attracting a lot of attention on YouTube and Tiktok. After all, being able to switch from curved to flat yourself at any time is something completely new, but is such a luxury really worth it? All general information about the difference between curved and flat monitors can be found in the following article:

Gaming monitor: curved or flat – which model is the right one?

Bendable OLED screen








With the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240, Corsair has created something that has never existed before: a bendable OLED gaming monitor. With two handles on the side, the 45-inch screen of the Xeneon Flex can be individually bent up to a radius of 0.8 meters. For some setups it could be interesting that only one side can be bent as required.

With a UWQHD resolution (3440 x 1440 pixels), a response time of 0.03 milliseconds and 240 Hertz, the widescreen offers very good key data for gaming on paper. The contrast ratio is OLED-typical at 1,350,000:1 and the color depth is 10 bits. AMD Freesync and Nvidia G-Sync are also on board to prevent tearing.

A specific device is designed to prevent pixel burn-in, which can occur with OLED panels Burn Prevention System help, about which nothing further is known at the moment. Corsair also promises a three-year warranty for burnt-in and defective pixels.

Useful or waste of money?

While the key technical data of the Corsair monitor sound promising in principle, one can take a more critical look at its special feature – especially when the still unknown price increases significantly due to the bending mechanism.

It looks impressive, instead of a smartphone, a whole monitor left and right wrinkles (or to bend something). However, we can’t think of any good reasons for switching between the settings more frequently in everyday use, especially since the radius is quite narrow.

There is also the question of wear and tear. How many times can you bend the screen without leaving any marks? After all, the principle of bendable or foldable screens is nothing new. After a certain number of bends, this will show up on the screen.

Popular curved gaming monitor

So it remains to be seen whether the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is an exceptional product or whether there will be more such monitors in the future. If we know more about price or release date, you can find out at GameStar.de.

And speaking of bendable screens: Google also wants to enter the market for foldable smartphones. You can find out more about this in this article:

Can you imagine buying a bendable monitor and what would you be willing to pay for it? Can you also think of good reasons for switching between a curved and a flat monitor more often in everyday life? Feel free to write it in the comments!
