1920 x 1080 is becoming an old standard, especially for gaming. Curved screen or not, they'll have to do better than that. Surprised they couldn't at least manage a 1920 x 1200.

An older standard it may be but it's not going anywhere just yet.
$430 is already a ridiculous amount for 1920x1080 TN panel, imagine what they would've charged for a higher resolution. Admittedly a curved panel will be more expensive because it's still a niche gimmick for now. If the adoption rate picks up substantially the price will drop.

1080P is quite unimaginative for today. The market is being taken by 34" curved panels with 3440x1440, with LG in the lead. And with $400 Samsung is way off the curb. I'm putting dimes together for LG 34UC97.

It's the 60Hz that puts me off. I'd love the day we can have 144Hz 4K IPS screens but sadly that day is far in the future but would have been good to this screen @ 120Hz atleast.

The blast from the past with a little touch of future curve, this would be interesting, at the $300 price point, if not even $250. Or increase the resolution, and or refresh rate, otherwise it's just not a logical purchase. You can just about get 3 24" 1080p screens for the same price, think about that Samsung...
