Curved Gaming Monitor CHG90

The Curved Gaming Monitor CHG90 provides an overwhelming sense of immersion and usability through a 32:9 curved monitor. Human engineering-related research and actual measurements defined the viewing angle and curvature with which users can experience the greatest sense of immersion based on monitor-watching distance. The CHG690 also reflects lighting and angle adjustment based on gamers' needs. Cap type antennas on the top and bottom protect the LCD from shattering by external shocks, while a detachable battery cover uses 6013 aluminum alloy for increased strength and durability.
