a security system monitor & productivity.  While I applaud a 2ms response time, I don' know that the hight resolution is appropriate for a gamer.  It's not for me anyway I'd need 1024 MINIMUM, but would prefer 1536.

Given the price, $40K, they should revamp their marketing and address a market that actually has the money for it.

They should call it the CEO chair and make a TV ad with Austin Powers' Dr Evil :-)

You can buy 3 20" monitors around $180 each and a Matrox triplehead2go for around $260 and build a 53" monitor for around $800 with a max resolution 3840x1024

20" monitors usually are 1600x1200, so you'd be looking at more like 4800x1200 with that setup you described

The Max res for the Matrox TripleHead2Go is currently 3840 * 1024

This is a nice monitor, but personally I would rather use the money much more wisely by purchasing the emperor chair gaming station from Novel Quest at novelquest.com.  This chair comes with three screens that angle just perfect.  It's nice not having the separation, but with this gaming station a person could pick their favorite screens of choice and modify their settings on each individual screen.

I suppose if you have the cash to burn its not bad to try it out.  It would be cool to have just for the braging rights.  I could only imagine what kind of setup you could have with this display and a Cinemassive setup.

For those worried about how the back sticks out, (like someone else said) check the Gizmoodo post.  This monitor is DLP.  this explains the size and also the insaine preformance.

I was totally excited with my new 24" HD 1080P widescreen. I want one of these now... :(

I think its pretty damn cool actually, and the fact it is LEDis even better.

But... 8k is a lot of money, I think I will stick with my 17" LCD and my 58" 1080p plasma...

Has anyone looked at the original Gizmodo article?  It's definitely not flat, it sticks out of the back.

THey neglect to mention that it's not an LCD.

And who would have thought that a 43" CURVED LCD monitor wouldn't be flat?  What is this world coming to?

avatar

Is there actually anyone out there dumb enough to spend 8k on one of these instead of buying 2 19in LCDs?  Is the curve worth that much?  Anyone actually want a seamless super wide display enough to pay that kind of markup?  Besides, I had my 2 22in widescreens side by side for a long time, then decided to rotate one so I get a portrait and a widescreen and it make so much more sense.  Oh, and waaaay cheaper.

Wasn't there an issue with these types of monitors where it's like 3 LCD panels in a row to deal with the curvature, and you can see the vertical line separating them (not as bad as 3 separate monitors and their bezals, but still noticeable).

Like my 21" SGI.  it supports a resolution of 2048x1536.  On a white screen (like google's page)you can notice the 3 horizontal lines.  They are thin, about 1/2 a pixel or so.  On anything even somewhat "normal" for videogames you'll never know they are there.  I'm  very sensitive to "optical defects"  which is why I still use a 75lb  CRT monitor, and I never have an issue with those lines, you don't see them when the screen is up.   My only issue is framerate, need to upgrade my 8800gts!

 

Anyone got an upgrade in the Oly, WA area?

$8k and you can't even play a Blu-ray at full resolution?

Would be worth it, if it supported a higher resolutions, I would be nice for people who have their computers in the corner though.

Resolution is pretty crappy. My 22" LCD is 1680x1050. This 43" is almost twice the size but doesn't even have close to twice as many pixels. Vertically, it's actually shorter - only 900 pixels. A 30" LCD running at 2560x1600 has 58% more pixels.

To my tastes, the pixel size on my LCD is about as big as I want it to get. This is going to look significantly worse as far as picture sharpness goes.

Eh...I'm too used to running at 1050 now, I can't go lower, must go higher!

But the reason people run multi-monitor setups is to literally have 2 to 3 different screens up at one time. Is this monitor going to be able to partition itself into multiple different sized screens, or is only going to be able to be one giant one?

Looks like that Alienware display.  Which has yet to be released...
