NEC took the wraps off their new curved display, which looks awfully similar to the one Alienware has been hinting at for some time. The new monitor 41.5 inches horizontally, but 15.2 inches deep. At almost fifty pounds, this display sort of feels like a return to the days of CRTs, where monitors ran hot, big and heavy, and we liked it that way.
The new NEC CRV43 is available, but only if you’ve got deep pockets; at $7999 it comes with a 3-year limited warranty. Shipments are expected to begin this July. Our only hope is that Alienware’s efforts won’t be quite so pricey.
