NEC 37-inch Hybrid LCD
NEC today unveiled a new 37-inch LCD set designed as much to be used at work as it is in the living room. While the MultiSync LCD3735WXM has an ATSC tuner for HDTV signals and includes component, composite, and S-video inputs, it trades the HDMI ports more common among HDTV sets for DVI and VGA connectors with HDCP support. This lets users not only connect a Mac or PC directly to the set, but also provides the option of switching between two computers' video sources. The 1366x768 display is also considerably more color-accurate than most TVs and has a 9ms response time suitable for fast video, according to NEC. The 3735WXM is expected to ship in early November for $2,299.
