LG intros 24-inch HD LCD

LG Electronics of Japan on Friday announced it will soon release the W2442PA-BF 24-inch computer monitor with 1920x1080 resolution. The monitor's other specifications include a 300cd/m2 brightness rating and 1000:1 contrast ratio that can be boosted in some scenes to as high as 10,000:1 thanks to LG's dynamic contrast feature. Mid-range tone, or grey-to-grey response time is rated at 2ms, while the black to white transition is specified as 5ms. LG offers users to set the LCD to a 4:3 aspect ratio from its native 16:9.

The W2442PA-BF has a vertical viewing angle of 160 degrees and is perfectly viewable from up 170 degrees off horizontal. A pair of 1W speakers is built-in, and connections include HDCP-compatible HDMI and DVI-D ports, along with a standard 15-pin VGA port. The LCD's mount can tilt it 5 degrees forward or 18 degrees backwards, and can pivot the whole screen into a portrait orientation. LG's new LCD is compatible with 100mm VESA mounts.

LG has not announced a concrete release date or pricing information for its upcoming LCD. [via Impress]

    Isn't this one of the main companies that was just fined MILLIONS of dollars for price fixing LCDs? Yeah I think so. I don't think I'll be giving them any of my money any time soon.
