- Corsair launched its latest gaming monitor called the Xeneon Flex earlier this month. The price is $2,000 for him.
- The 45-inch screen can be bent to create a curved monitor for a more immersive gaming experience.
- It also has many ports and a low blue light feature to reduce eye strain.
If you want a curved display, a new bendable computer screen can literally solve your problem.
Gaming hardware company Corsair unveiled its latest computer monitor, the Xeneon Flex, earlier this month. This is the latest in a line of gaming monitors that he can buy for $2,000.
The 45-inch OLED screen can be bent in a curve of up to 800mm by pulling the handles on both sides forward to switch between flat and curved displays. A curved display allows for a more immersive gaming experience, but some people prefer it when working.
Of course, you might ask yourself if bending will strain the screen, but Corsair says the monitor can be bent 10,000 to 15,000 times and is expected to last more than five years.
The Xeneon Flex is an OLED display with a resolution of 3440 x 1440 and a refresh rate of 240Hz. It also includes features like flicker-free images, anti-glare, motion blur cancellation, and low blue light, which Corsair says can help reduce eye strain after staring at the screen for long periods of time.
For even more customization, the bendable monitor has a series of ports on the back, including a display port, two HDMI ports, a USB video port, and other USB ports for accessories.
However, some reviewers were quick to point out how difficult it was to bend the monitor: IGN found bending the screen “uneasy” and said the plastic panel “squeaks while the entire display shakes”. I discovered that it makes noise. Similarly, a reviewer for The Verge found that bending the monitor required a “nerve-wracking amount of force”.
You can see the bent display in The Verge’s video synopsis below.
Still, reviewers concluded that the monitor included an “impressive display” and “looks great from multiple viewing angles,” with IGN and Verge respectively.
The monitor is available for pre-order now and will start shipping at the end of December 2022.
The Xeneon Flex will be on display at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show, the world’s largest consumer technology showcase based in Las Vegas. This begins on his January 5th.
