NEC's massive 43" curved display soon on sale

The 2880x900 pixel resolution of NEC's CRV43 curved display is perfect for gaming, but at $8,000, it's not everyman territory. It has a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.02ms response time, and is claimed to cover 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut. It hooks up with DVI-D and HDMI, and includes a USB 2 hub. I saw this in person at CES a couple of times while it was in development: what you don't see in this product shot is that it's actually an oldschool rear-projection unit, with a nine inch rear. After the jump, a gallery!

    900 pixels high? Not even a full HD frame high?

    Maybe you can stack two of them on top of each other.

    It wasn’t particularly crisp, but the ones I saw weren’t production models.

    It’s amazing how enormous 9″ looks when you’re used to modern flat panels. [shoot, that started pretty hilariously…]

    I’m going to side with Therevengor, though. 900 pixels just isn’t quite enough. My laptop is 1440×900 and it’s frustrating. I find myself using “full screen” mode on more programs than usual.

    Small correction:
    Three of these would be excellent for gaming.

    Dream big, I say. :D

    WoW, awesome, but the res is not so impressive!

    what about distortion? Will Sackboy get fatter and blurrier at the edges?

  8. Anonymous says:

    Ugh. That baby got back.

  9. That is pure awesome. You would actually have to turn your head to see from one side of the screen to the other…so probably not great for competitive gaming, but more for pure immersive single player fun.

    This is just ridiculous.
    You can honestly go out and buy 2 20″ (1600x900px) displays from Dell for something like $150 dollars each, then put them right next to each other.

    You’re better off buying an HD projector and closing the blinds/shutters of your room.

    At about half the price of this, 43″ is laughable after I played Bioshock and HL2ep2 on my 103″ HD setup.
