    Over 1200 bills. Doesn't seem like much of a curve when viewed from above.

    $1,200 seems like a lot for that. Also, Samsung's monitors are awful.

    Other than being curved, how is it a better picture? Seems gimmicky to me.

    they said the curved TV was a big dud, but an monitor may make some sense

    It might but all manufacturers make a really high markup on monitors and their big sales are institutional. They may have to give them away like HP & Dell which will kill any advantage they get from having them at all. TVs are almost an impulse purchase whereas monitors are often kept for 3+ years.
