17-inch widescreen deal
Westinghouse Digital Electronics has announced back-to-school pricing for its new LCD display. Featuring a clean white chassis with silver trim, the 17" monitor delivers a 1280x768 resolution with a 15:9 aspect ratio and 170-degree viewing angle. The display also boasts a 600:1 contrast ratio and response time of 15 milliseconds -- all for $230. Westinghouse says the display is good for everything from spreadsheets, to DVD movies, to video games. "Many video games are being produced in widescreen format, and this monitor is excellent for maximizing the gaming experience. Customers will find that this monitor is compact and lightweight for convenient travel, and leaves a small footprint on the desktop."
