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 $US6,500.

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 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 $US6,499.

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 $US20,000 worth of pixels:

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
