That curved Alienware monitor you keep hearing about

Subject: Displays | January 11, 2008 - 04:27 PM |

A lot of people have been talking about the Alienware monitor that was on display at CES this week.  You know the one: 2880x900 resolution, LED lit DLP technology, due out in the second half of the year.

Here's a couple of images to remind you:

The monitor uses some hardware logic that is necessary to split the image up between four different "displays" inside the chassis and the merge them on the screen.  Despite early reports saying they say "faint lines" showing where these displays all met, my experiences were much more...realistic.  The lines on the screen were very distracting and took away the awe that I was hoping to see after reading the reports.

Alienware does claim those lines will be gone when the display is sold - this is just an early prototype.  We'll wait and see.
