    not to bad of a price when you consider what you get. most displays that claim 10-bit aren't true 10-bit, so if this thing sreally is true 10-bit at that resolution with that much brightness it's well worth the price tag. not that i have anywhere near that amount to spend.

    I imagine it would use two cables and act like two monitors. I could be wrong though.
    How is a gird of bezels "better looking"? Yes, it's significantly cheaper, higher res, more practical, etc.
    I'm not sure how you expect a 27-foot monitor to fit on your desk.
    :pimp:

    I'll bet some yuppie will buy this just becuase it's expensive and expensive things are trendy, and just use it to play farmville on or watch youtube LMAO.

    and if people wanna get it on financing it will be as much as people's mortgage payments!

    Back in the days, Starcraft didn't have the option to change the resolution so players with better rigs won't have a unfair advantage of bigger visible battlefield. If 1024*768 was considered an unfair advantage, what would they call this humongous beast ?


    Lol, I thought no one else noticed it.

    Yeah, my initial reaction was "FUCK YEAH!" and then I saw the price and just whimpered as I put my tail between my legs and walked away.

    It's not extremely impressive when you consider it's only 129ppi. The 17" 1920x1200 laptop panels that have been available for years beat it at 133ppi.

    It's aspect ratio is also wider than 16:9 at 19:10. Just what we need, even wider monitors for games and productivity.

    Glad to see anyone make a monitor in any resolution other than 1080p. It gives me hope that someone out there realizes that people do other things with their computers than watch HD video.

    But this resolution and this price actually reinforces my view that those running the monitor industry have no interest in what is best for the consumer, but instead is focusing on what they trick people into buying and producing the most profit for themselves.

    In the past, monitors used to get bigger and cheaper. I would have expected something like 2048x1536 or 2560x1440 to have replaced 1920x1200 by now.

    Instead we are stuck FullHD and only get monitors like this that are rediculous to people living in tough economic times. I mean why even introduce a montior that costs $36000????

    Boggles the mind.

    what an oddball ratio. One would think they would have made it 16:9 or 16:10 at least.

    wth??
