Ive just purchased the 49inch Samsung monitor with the 32:9 curve, and when im using that ratio the screen seems to be stretched (ships look bloated) but the UI is fine. Even when i change it to 21:9 there is some slight stretching, but not as much as before. 16:9 looks as to be expected from what im used to playing on before. Anyone else having these kinda issues with their ultrawides? Left picture is 32:9 and right is 21:920180309_071754.thumb.jpg.74787f42113d6eb47047bb47931a7999.jpg20180309_071544.thumb.jpg.7391582b0c763faeab8794e293190894.jpg

I mean it's hard to see much here, but from what I can see the bottom one would be what I'd use.

Every once in a while I'll notice a slight fish eye effect at edges of my 34" 1440P display, but nothing as pronounced as your photo on the left. Yikes.

It would seem that i forgot about the trusty "turn it on and off again" trick... Switching the window mode a few times fixed it xD20180309_074543.thumb.jpg.2dfe31c2457067e4a9108fcd0827494f.jpg

21:9 Monitor used to do this a lot until you were given the option to select 21:9.

I think "Auto" is your best bet, and hope that it doest try to set it to 16:9 like it did with my monitor.

The sides are still Stretched, feels like you are in a fish bowl or maybe one of them 120 degrees cameras. Not sure if the human eye does that to the sides. The image becomes normal as you focus on the item. For example, item in middle of the screen is perfect, the more it moves to your right/left the more stretched it becomes.

 

I am still debating if I like it, right now I am having power issues with the monitor. It won't power up after it has been off for a number of hours. Testing to see what the issue is, is also a pain since I can only do one test every 5+ hours.
