Dell’s Curved Monitors for Gamer

What good is having an ultra-powerful PC if you’re still connecting it to a dusty old monitor? We reckon doing so would be pretty silly. Good thing that alongside the new Alienware Area 51, Dell’s pulled the curtain back on its 34-inch Ultrasharp U3415W display then. It boasts a wider-than-widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio that’s paired with 3,440 x 1,440 lines of resolution (just under 4K’s 3,840 x 2,160) and a curved screen. Dell says that the monitor’s wide field of view mated with its curves will give gamers a leg up on the competition because, compared to flat monitors, less eye movement is needed to take advantage of the player’s peripheral vision. Intrigued to test that claim? You can do so come this December. We’re hoping that regardless of size, though, a curved screen doesn’t necessarily equate to an expensive screen – Dell hasn’t announced pricing for these displays just yet.

Samsung Soon to Launch HD Monitor

If you’ve got the kinda of money it takes to build yourself the digital house of your dreams, you’re probably on the lookout for a lot of devices that you could add to your impressive collection. Well, I’ve got something for you right here! It seems the boys and girls at Samsung have been up to their dirty tricks again and decided to impress us with a new ultra-slim LED monitor. Meet the SyncMaster XL2370.

The way I see it, this monitor is specifically designed for two types of people: multimedia enthusiasts and gamers. It features LED edge-lit backlight that allows for a brighter range of colors than common CCFL backlights and that is especially noticeable when viewing 1080p High Definition media. The XL2370 has a dynamic contrast ratio of 5.000.000:1, as well as a 2 millisecond response time, which virtually guarantees no or at least unnoticeable lags or blurry fast moving scenes (FPS players know what I am talking about).

Doug Albregts, vice president, Information Technology Division, Samsung Electronics America, declared the following, “This monitor will definitely set a new standard for this category. Samsung is taking its monitors to the next level by creating a high end monitor with a sharp design. It has an amazing picture quality that our high-end users appreciate at a price that our cost conscious consumers also like.”

As far as screen ratio is concerned, you can relax since the 16:9 widescreen format guarantees you won’t “benefit” from any image distortion or stretching like you tend to receive on 16:10 aspect ratio monitors. The monitor will be available starting with October 12, while distribution through retailers will begin in late November. As for the MSRP of this baby, 299USD is what you might be paying for it.
