There is a 3rd party company that sells bezel-less plasma displays with the bezel measuring less than 5mm.  They have had the product on the market for quite a few years now.  The screens are 42" each.  They call them Infinite Plasma, as you can line up as many of them as you want to make a screen infinity large (theoretically).  Still, it's good to see other companies pursuing the tech.

Yeah, nice. But I'm always leary of companies that adopt the "if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it" strategy.

They kind of are, I was looking at these things over a year ago.  

Maybe we'll get some consumer pricing out of it.  I honestly look forward to the day when I can rifle through someone else's trash and pull out an Ultra High Definition display, unfold it, and discover that someone through it away because they were too lazy to clean a Doritos smudge off it.

Hopefully this will trickle down to consumer desktops in record time. With ATI & Nvidia's solutions there are a good number of enthusiast waiting to purchase monitors with thin bezels. I am one of them.

These are 60-inch professional monitors. Goodness only knows how much one costs, never mind three or six.

Chances are you'd be hard pushed to build a rig that would cost more than three of these monitors.

that's true I was just fixated on the small bezel and got carried away.

sweet, I can't wait for them to come to North America. Finally a eyefinity setup worth getting.
