    As pointless gimmicks go, this is going to be an expensive one, if it comes to market.

    CSO sounds fun. I'd probably ignore it if I ended up with this TV, but it sounds fun. I wonder where they're expecting us to get films with the audio positional information included?

    When I first looked at a curved monitor it hurt my eyes for a day or two, going back to a normal monitor had the same effect. I can't see this taking off to be honest if people plan to change between the two often.

    Sorry guys, but that's exactly the kind of monitor I've been waiting for for years now. Not that I want it to be bendable, I'd be more than happy with a fixed 1000R, but if this is 21:9 2160p, I'ma gonna shell out for it

    If you play the likes of F1 games it'll be brilliant.

    27 or 32 inch, flat oled, otherwise I'm not interested.

    glad to see I'm not the only one not convinced by curved monitors yet!

    Have to admit, the idea of bending a monitor is frightening... Makes you wonder what effect that has on the lifespan on the product!

    It's almost perfect screen for me, it may be slightly too big, but damn. Finally!

    I've had a quality TN panel for a few years, then quality VN curved and now quality ips. Each monitor technology has its own quirks but I would say all three were the same "good" league generally speaking. I found the curve not adding anything to the experience, in fact when I changed back to flat I realised I prefer it.

    I also have an Oled TV for over a year. Oled really is in a different "mind blowing" league in terms of image quality and immersion. And I'm coming from a plasma TV with next best thing blacks
