ViewSonic launches 24-inch PC/TV display

updated 08:50 am EST, Mon December 15, 2008

ViewSonic VT2430 LCD

ViewSonic today made the last-minute introduction of the VT2430. The 24-inch LCD is conceived as a secondary HDTV that also doubles as a PC display and carries both an HDMI 1.3 connection as well as VGA; either can display at up to a native 1080p versus the 720p of most TVs at the same size. The screen also has a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio uncharacteristic of most PC displays but is still said to have a fast 5ms pixel response time.

More conventional TV input comes from component, RCA and S-video connections; sound is built-in and comes from a 10W chin-mounted stereo speaker setup. Exact availability isn't mentioned but should see the set priced closer to a conventional PC-only display at $399.

    full 1080p?

    according to their own website: "1360x768 optimum PC resolution" would seem to indicate the native resolution of the display is not 1080p
