NEC 2470WNX 24-inch LCD
NEC has quietly introduced its LCD2470WNX display for performance and pro users. The 24-inch screen is one of NEC's first to handle HDCP encryption for protected videos and has passed certification for Vista. The display maker also touts an extremely flexible stand that both pivots the display for portrait mode and adjusts for angle and height. A thin bezel also helps the 2470WNX fit into multi-display setups.
The screen itself is said to have strong performance, with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and a 6ms response time. A special dynamic video mode automatically adjusts color for different programs to help artists and video editors. NEC further equips the 2740WNX with DVI/VGA inputs and a USB hub, and lists the display as available now for $820 in black or silver.
