Formac Gallery Platinum
today announced its new Gallery Platinum LCD, available in 19.0 or 20.1 inch sizes. Taking advantage of the latest leap in TFT technology, the new Gallery 1900 delivers pixel response time of 8ms gray-to-gray, a contrast ratio of 800:1, and brightness rated at 300 cd/m2. Featuring a SXGA resolution (1,280 by 1,024) the Gallery 1900 displays the identical digital information of a 17" LCD, but on a screen real estate that is "comparable to a 20" wide-screen LCD." The 25 percent bigger picture "benefits text intensive applications such as web-browsing, spreadsheets, and word processing, but also is of advantage when working with highly detailed graphics." For a limited time Formac offers a direct pre-order discount of $40, lowering the price of the 19" LCD to $450, and the 20" LCD to $660.
