Sony intros color-accurate 24-inch LCD

Sony D24WD1 Display

Sony on Monday returned to semi-professional LCDs with the D24WD1 24-inch, full HD display. Officially intended as a complement to the VAIO R Master tower and other high-end desktops, the screen is described as ideal for both watching and editing Blu-Ray movies. Better backlighting provides about 92 percent of the NTSC color gamut as well as a more vivid 1,000:1 contrast ratio and an above-average 400cd/m2 brightness level. Video editors and even console gamers can attach as many three sources into the LCD with dual, HDCP-encrypted DVI ports and a VGA port for analog computer hookups.

The D24WD1 ships first in Japan and will be available in the country in the near future for the equivalent of $1,065. A US release is probable but has not been announced for the region as of today. [via Akihabara]

    Dying for...

    I really love my Sony Artisan CRT. I can't wait for the day when non-CRT technology reaches the quality of the Artisan at the same price. 27"+ will be great.

    Can you wait six months?

    Apple should have LCDs with LED backlighting by MWSF in January. They will give your Artisan a wedgie - like looking at coated paper when calibrated.

    As for this beast - the same screen is sold by many for much less. Dell 2407WFP-HC for $610, for example.
