I had heard somewhere that they now have the technology to make these screens so thin that they can be wrapped around a pole such as in some futuristic movie advertisements.

And it was interesting that she mentioned the response time for these displays, because I had noticed how crappy they were that way in the stores. I suppose this might be because there are several monitors in a series?

I might be wrong, but it seems that the LCD monitors are typically slower?

The curve is what makes it better.
Ideally you would want it to surround you, and even better, a spherical screen all around you. When you view it, you want all parts of the screen to be equal distance from you eyes. 4k res? heh, its gonna take nothing short of quad-sli to run that monitor. BTW crysis is an amazing game. I'm running it on a 30" dell, and it is heavenly..

By flat, I think he wishes it was a flat panel, like an LCD. In fact, it is DLP rear-projection screen, so it has some depth to it (looks to be 6 inches or so). As for resolution, it runs at 2880x900, which most graphics cards should be able to handle fine.

You can do that with LCDs right now. You just need to take it out of it's protective case lmao. What you're thinking of is OLED technology or EInk technology.

Yeah this monitor is kickass but I wish it was a Flat Panel and not Rear Projection.... ASUS has one coming out soon that is a Flat Panel and it's based on OLED technology so no Backlighting is necessary since it emits it's own light.

Oh yeah, Alienware is overpriced. Wait for HannsG, Lenovo or ASUS to come out with a similar monitor, or if you can afford it buy that 150" Plasma screen

Not that much I think since it's only rear projection. I'd say just over a thousand CND

haha, I seriously dought that many cards on the market would be able to push games out at that res. But you can only hope.

My 2 year-old NVidia GForce 7800 can drive games at 1920x1200 (which is 2,304,000 pixels). 2880x900 is 2,592,000 pixels (just 12.5% more than 1920x1200).
