How to choose
How we test

The best ultrawide monitor will give you an aspect ratio of 21:9, rather than the standard 16:9. Some have an even wider ratio, up to 32:9. Either way, you'll GET EXTRA space to view lots of photos at once, place multiple windows side-by-side, and see all the tools and palettes in your photo editing software.
