Nice New $8000 Monitor From NEC

Posted: 10:41AM

What economic crisis? So, how would you like to spend $8000 ($7,999 to be precise) on a brand spanking new 44” monitor with a resolution of 2880x900, namely, the NEC CRV43? Oh, and I forgot to mention that this monitor is curved – that’s right, it’s CURVED! This new money eating monitor comes with 100% coverage of sRGB and 99.3% coverage of Adobe RGB. Connectivity isn’t lacking either – USB, DVI and HDMI 1.3 ports, although amount is unspecified. It should start shipping next month.
"The NEC CRV43 curved display provides an excitingly immersive viewing experience for any type of user," said Keith Yanke, Director of Product Marketing for NEC Display Solutions. "Its lightning-fast response time coupled with its seamless curved screen provides enhanced comfort, decreased frustration and increased productivity. The monitor eliminates the bezel and screen gap issues that have complicated users' work environment for years." - I for one am speechless.

It is apparently not seamless at all though. I'll get five 30" inch monitors for that price and place them in an arc ;)

Yeah I would probably go for the multi monitor option as well. Anyway, they had these on display at the Creative booth at CES and you're right, not completely seamless, but they still looked pretty good. http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m76/iJammin/NEC-CRV43.jpg Picture makes it look worse I think.

Yes, the image doesn't do it justice. I played on it at CES, and it is seamless. Because of the nature of the curve, taking photographs distorts it a little bit (my pictures don't look as good as it looks in person either). I don't personally think it's worth $8k, but trust me, if money wasn't an issue, it looks better than a dual-monitor setup.

How about a quadruple 30" monitor setup? For cheaper too :P

Like I said, if money wasn't part of the equation, I'd rather have this instead of 4 separate monitors. For one, who has room for four monitors? But secondly, you're not going to find many, if any, games that will expand across all four...and even if you do, you're going to have three "bars" separating your view.

I thought alienware showed this off a few years ago as a prototype. I think there was a video of it on youtube.

i heard about this last year about alienware making a DLP screen and i guess its been handed over to NEC.
