Viewsonic 35-series HDTVs
Viewsonic on Tuesday ramped up the quality of its smaller LCD TVs by introducing the 35-series, a new collection of screens that offer stronger image quality without the associated price. The 26-inch N2635W, 32-inch N3235W, and 37-inch N3735W are all capable of higher than 720p resolution and are relatively bright and fast for the size with a 500-nit brightness and an 8ms pixel response time. Chin-mounted 20W stereo speakers also provide relatively strong sound for setups where external speakers aren't an option, and PC video input is standard for an easier hookup with media center computers.
The smallest set features an 800:1 static contrast ratio, according to ViewSonic, while the two larger sets enjoy a deeper 1,200:1 ratio. All sets include component, HDMI, RCA, and S-video; the 37-inch adds DVI for computer input where the smaller screens use analog VGA for older PCs.
All three sets incorporate both analog and HD tuning and should be available beginning today with street prices reaching $599, $699, and $899 for the sets ranging from smallest to largest.
