V7 rolls out sub-$500 24-inch LCD

V7 D24W33 LCD

V7 began Tuesday by introducing a 24-inch screen it believes will push large LCDs to a lower cost: the D24W33 brings the 1920x1200 resolution of similar LCDs but also specifications V7 claims are reserved for premium LCDs. The display maker claims a quick, 2-millisecond average pixel response time and also makes a unique exchange for the sake of cost: instead of including a DVI input, the D24W33 uses HDMI and so lets both computers (with an adapter) and HD-capable devices connect to the screen in digital form. VGA is also available. A four-watt speaker system provides audio across either HDMI or minijack inputs.

The new V7 screen is also unusual in its class for adjustability. Viewers can not only adjust height and tilt but also pivot the screen into portrait mode or even detach the stand entirely for mounting on a display arm or wall. Unlike some firms, V7 does not plan on selling the D24W33 itself but will sell the screen through Ingram Micro and other resellers by January 2008, when the display will be available for about $459.

    That is a good price, but I would like to see one hooked up to a Mac first. I've bought LCDs in the past that looked great when hooked up to the Windoze boxes at the store, but you get them home and the colors look like c*** on the Mac, no matter the amount of ColorSync-fiddling you do.

    specs aren't all... terms of image quality as I can relate from my own trials - also the fit & finish of cinema displays with their aluminum construction is incomparable - like comparing a prestige car to a family sedan...

    I had a rotating display as well & found I didn't use it anywhere as much as I thought I might, although the apple display software worked wonderfully for such...

    You'd think there'd be at least one public expoit of all of these so called "critical" security holes.
