Viewsonic today released the VX1932wm. The 19-inch LCD is a counterpart to the already released VX1935wm that promises a faster 2ms response time than the 5ms of the current display, boosting its performance in games and movies. Viewing angles are also wider at 160 degrees in any direction; brightness is rated at 300cd/m2, while contrast is relatively sharp at 700:1. The monitor also picks up HDCP support for encrypted videos from Blu-Ray and HD DVD and the same 3W stereo speakers for built-in audio.
Shipping immediately in Taiwan, the VX1932wm will sell in the region for $239. No announcement has been made of a North American launch, though the DVI- and VGA-supporting display may follow soon with prices at or below the price set in Taiwan. [via DigiTimes]
