Strange looking. Basically it's a fresnel lens, but it's not clear why it's angled. To me it would seem to introduce potentially bad lateral colour aberrations. A photo showing a view from the viewer's perspective would have clarified at least some of the questions I have.

But I don't really care. There is obviously a limit to monitor size (and probably effective resolution), and in the end a fresnel is not the clearest or sharpest optic.
