    Anyone take a look at the new Cinerama Monitors released? I wonder, how do these compare to the Apple displays?

    The price is just right too! Take a look at that while you're there and give me a reason NOT to buy one of these puppies, when Apple releases some tweaked G5s @ MWSF 2004.

    How are they able to get a contrast ratio of 700:1? Everyone else is in the 350:1 range. I bet they are adding the monitors together, which puts you in the 250:1 range (poor).

    That's probably why they are so cheap too.

    Fake. But very funny! I started a thread about the site elsewhere.

    How can you tell it's fake? I mean, I'll be damned if I give 'em my credit card, but it seems like a perfectly legit online store. Of course, the monitors themselves seem too-good-to-be-true, but hey, you never know...

    They also sell all sorts of stuff other than the monitors. Who are these people?:confused:

    Actually, some people are insisting they're real, but I just can't believe it.

    - It's a complete rip-off of Apple's site design (adapted to use Windows XP style)
    - The market speak is completely over the top ("CacheFlow™ Technology is a pre-emptive multi-threading artificial intelligence memory engine" what the?)

    It must surely be a joke!

    This was was reported by MacNN and that's how I found out about them. I was just curious on how they do display wise. Sounds like, not too good, considering that in order to get the full 700:1 resolution, you counting all 3 monitors to get to that number.

    I like that little bit on the bottom of that page that reads, "* Not responsible for typographical errors and omissions."

    Now does were not a real company but were not going to tell you that an omission?

    There is clear evidence that this is a fraud. Do not visit the site.
