NEC Also Working on Curved Monitor

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.

Too bad rear projection is the trailer-trash method to having a big TV. These monitors would be awesome if they were LCD or LED.

why do you say its 'retarded' for games...

one of the idea of these types of screens is that they display images in your peripheral vision making any graphical experience more engrossing.

...and you don't 'have' to use special video cards for 4 screens it can be done other ways.
