If you’re looking for an Alienware monitor the company is now promoting what is probably the ultimate gaming display (or any other kind of display for that matter). This 48 inch diagonal monitor boasts a humongous 2880 horizontal pixel resolution and a refresh rate of 2 milliseconds.
A curved Alienware monitor
Such a refresh rate cannot currently be achieved with LCD so this Alienware monitor employs rear-projection technology and this, unfortunately, results in a rather deep back to the device.
The monitor being demonstrated is a prototype at CES this week but expect the real thing to be available later this year.
Yes this monitor really was launched for real under the NEC brand (albeit at a slightly reduced size of 43 inches) and you can read about it here:
It is unlikely that this technology will now make much progress as more appropriate display methods are now available such as OLED which behaves a little like LCD for display purposes but does not require a back-light and lends itself to curved screens due to it’s as-yet unique ability to bend. LG have manufactured a curving home theatre screen that would seem to be a more likely precursor to curving computer monitors.
