NEC Announces MultiSync EX341R Curved Ultrawide QHD Display

NEC Display Solutions of America announced the MultiSync EX341R curved ultrawide display.

The 34" display boasts a 3440 x 1440 resolution, an 1800R curvature, and an SVA panel. NEC said the device is meant to provide an "immersive desktop experience for business, finance, and command & control users." The EX341R's 5ms response time won't excite many gamers, but casual players will probably be able to live with it.

The EX341R is certified for Low Blue Light Content and Flicker-Free from TÜV Rheinland, which should help reduce eye strain and other health issues. It also "features NEC's ground-breaking ControlSync technology combined with DisplayPort daisy-chain functionality to simplify multiple monitor configurations as well as a picture by picture mode to replace existing monitors." It has two HDMI ports, four USB 3.0 ports, and DisplayPort 1.2 I/O.

NEC is selling two EX341R models: one by itself (the EX341R-BK), and one, the EX341R-SV-BK, with the company's SpectraViewII software used to "ensure colors are uniform and accurate." The products are otherwise identical and carry an MSRP of $999 and $1,149, respectively. The company said both will be available this month.

    SVA??? Nothing like using 2012 Samsung technology and charging a premium for it!

    16.7 million colors is obsolete at that premium price. 75hz is nice though. Not sure why someone would buy this when they can get over a billion colors and 100hz out of the Samsung CF791 at the same or slightly lower price. NEC might want to check their competition.

    There sure are a lot of 34 inch, 21:9 displays showing up in the market. I'd like to get one, but the prices are still too high in general. The Dell u3415w is now priced well, but not sure about its performance characteristics.

    Nothing like paying $1149 to "live with it"
