CES: Alienware Wrap-Around Gaming Monitor

Grant Gochnauer just sent in this goodie. It’s the new Alienware curved gaming monitor:

And yes, for the astute folks out there, it is a DLP-based monitor (just as the tech is dying in HDTVs, gaming monitor folks pick it up… why?) and has a response time of 0.02ms, so more or less instant.

The interesting part is that it seems to have a resolution of 2880×900… hardly stellar for something this frigging big. Most 30″ monitor carry a 2650×1600 resolution (or there abouts) and are much more usable than a hugely expensive, super-wide gaming monitor with only 900 vertical pixels.

It apparently goes on sale Q2 of ’08… next please!
