Ostendo 43-inch curved monitor: The ultimate gaming display?

Editor’s Note: The following article is reprinted from the Geek Tech blog at PCWorld.com.

If your existing display just isn't cutting it any more, then it might be time to step up to Ostendo’s 43-inch curved monitor. This long-awaited display is now available to buy for just under $6,500.

The Ostendo CRVD is an LED-backlit display featuring a 32:10 aspect ratio. It was first spotted back in early 2008 when Alienware had it on display at the Consumer Electronics Show. It was sighted again a year later at Macworld Expo 2009, this time sporting NEC branding. Since then, we've heard little on when to expect the quad-DLP display.

However, Ostendo has been quietly selling the CRVD since August. The 2880-by-900 pixel resolution monitor is available via Ostendo’s Web site now for $6,499.

According to early reports, the CRVD monitor is selling surprisingly rather well; it’s been put in use by the military, hardcore gamers, and the Crown prince of Dubai. Recession? What recession?

Ostendo posted a video showing gamer playing on not just one, but three (!), CRVD monitors. Watch in envy as he enjoys nearly $20,000 worth of pixels:
