Default It's about time!!

Finally someone's introduced a curved display. Although it's Alienware to be the first to offer this later in the year I think we can all expect to see more of these in the future!

Wow.. talk about widescreen huh? That's a bit much for my taste though, maybe if the dimensions were more.. main stream, it is really cool though. I could see myself buying one in the future once it becomes more commonplace.

wicked find but you can see 3 lines down the middle of the screen where it curves. To be honest, that would kinda annoy me while gaming lol

It says in the article, those seams would be gone in the production model.

Seems like, with games that support it, and if your computer is good enough, it'll be like playing a game with 3 monitors, either side of each other.

I can see potential in racing games/simulation games also, but the FOV might be a bit off.

I Have mixed feelings about this monitor,not only is it Massive,but it would also have a massive price tag,but it looks cool none the less

Wow that looks pretty sweet. I bet since its curved it may simulate a Imax to a small degree.
