HP 30-inch LCD Released
Hewlett-Packard today made its first entry into the ultra-large computer display market by posting early official details of its LP3065 computer LCD. While news of the screen appeared in advance, the latest information has revealed HP's intentions to compete in terms of both features and price. The LP3065 will sport three dual-link DVI ports, according to HP, in contrast to the single connector on both Apple and Dell monitors. Its 92% NTSC color gamut will also be complemented by a high 1,000:1 contrast ratio and a 300cd/m2 brightness. Crucially, the new design is expected to ship for $1,699 when available November 11th, placing the high-end design closer in price to Dell's $1,499 basic model.
