ViewSonic slips out 17-inch widescreen budget LCD

updated 10:10 am EST, Thu January 18, 2007

ViewSonic VA1703wb

Without fanfare, ViewSonic today released a new entry LCD named the VA1703wb. The 17-inch model follows the more heavily publicized large-screen introductions at CES and is intended to bring widescreen visuals to every user. Average pixel response time is rated at 8ms, which the company says is quick enough for games. Brightness, in turn, is measured at 250cd/m2 and is complemented by a 500:! contrast ratio. An integrated power supply eliminates the need for a separate AC adapter. Although only a single VGA connector is included, the design reduces the display's sale price to $205. ViewSonic expects to ship the VA1703wb soon but has not specified a release date.
