Looks like Alienware isn’t the only company with a curved monitor in the works. NEC has now announced its own 42” curved display, which will feature a resolution of 2880x900 pixels and a response time of under 0.02ms – pretty much identical to the Alienware specs, although an NEC spokeswoman said the two "have nothing to do with each other." NEC’s offering will have a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and uses LED-backlit DLP rear projection, just like the Alienware one. As you can see, there are clearly visible seams, although these should be gone when the display goes on sale.
