We check out the display that took the 2008 tech world by storm. The Ostendo CRVD 43 was the worlds first curved AND ultra-wide monitor. It’s THICC and awesome and we get to unbox one. Who knew Linus running his mouth would get him a piece of history…… for $6000. Thanks to Vojox for sending us this: twitter.com/VojoxB & rsloft.info

    most people just put two smaller monitors next to each other & you can extend the screen to cover both monitors - yeah there's a black bezel in the middle, but no biggie.

    I'm a poor person who just got his first modern monitor. Nice, bright Nixeus 144 hz. Freesync, 27 inch 2k ips display. I'm loving jumping up, first from a TV that was too slow to game on, then to a 23 inch dim 1080 va dell I got used almost for free to this. I'm totally satisfied with this cheap new monitor. So it's fun gaming and youtubing at 2k... I kind of feel sorry for this display you're gonna take apart though >.>

    You guys should pair this with an Alienware Area 51 ALX R1 for an ultimate 2010 setup. I've got a Area 51 R1, but it's not the ALX and the GTX 480 had issues so I put in a 570. Still have the 480. You guys can use it if you want to pay for shipping. Squeeze another video out of that monitor and do more retro PC stuff :)

    he said how heavy it was as he clearly uber struggled to get it out of the box. A few minutes later "it's 25lbs" LOL what is he 10 years old? My Sony Trintron 21" Monitor was like 65lbs, now that was hard to lug around to LAN parties.

    Samsung also has this kind of monitor but its a lot smaller in weight it's name is 'ODYSSEY'.And its way more cheeper i think in US may be around 2500 dollars i guess.

  • hardrivethrutown

    Get a first gen x58 based i7, 12, 24 or 48GB DDR3, a Radeon HD 4870X2 or GeForce 9800GX2, chuck in an early SSD or 10k RPM hard drive raid array, get an Antec 1200 and a old 850 watt PSU and try to make the ultimate 2008 gaming machine... And of course try out that monitor with Crysis

    I looked up Ostendo. Apparently they are still around. Looks like they are working on “quantum photonics” which, at least from what I gathered in a few minutes, is some fine light manipulation stuff. Looks like they are just about to open a fab for some kind of quantum photonics silicon chip manufacturing? Anyone want to chime in here? There website seems more geared towards marketing. Not exactly sure what applications their new work is targeting exactly but it seems like quantum computing stuff of some sort.

    I'd plug that into my 2008 m15x any day with glee it's such a chunky boi I love it



  • HimikoJoshua

    I like how theirs RSloftrs like this that have the audacity to complain about an items price knowing that the average person can’t even afford a 4K monitor and then you got this dude with multiple sponsors, multiple companies sending him FREE things and don’t forget the ad revenue he gets from these videos and he still complains about price....

    5:00 Little do you realize that this single-link cable was worth $50-70 on the market at the time this released. It was advanced for hdmi, and is real useful for dvi-only monitors. No such thing as "too much monitor extension" I picked up a heavy duty cable for $35 at RadioShack ~4 years ago. Still using it
