Curved gaming monitor to retail for under $800 this spring

At a pre-CES event in Las Vegas, Westinghouse showed off a widescreen (21:9 aspect ratio) gaming monitor that also happened to be curved, and thereby make for a more immersive gaming experience. The resolution is said to be 3K, so about 3440×1440 pixels, and offering both HDMI and MiniDisplayPort inputs. Also on hand was a 42-inch 4K LCD flatscreen, and the rep on-hand said that it’s part of a new range that will include top-tier specs but be aggressively priced, as is the Westinghouse tradition. Smaller and larger models will also be part of the lineup.

The monitor will be out sometime this spring, we were told, and will reportedly cost under $800. It should offer much better value than the 34-inch screen just unveiled by Philips. Pricing for the 4K TV range was not divulged, however, but they should launch around the same time.
