CinemaView ships 24" LCD with Mini DisplayPort connection

updated 06:00 pm EDT, Fri April 23, 2010

Display provides 1920x1080 resolution

CinemaView has begun shipping its 24-inch LCD display, the CV24in, designed for Mini DisplayPort attachment to Macs. The monitor mimics the design of Apple's 24-inch Cinema Display, including an aluminum housing and black bezel, although the CV24's 1920x1080 resolution falls short of the Apple device which integrates a 1920x1200 panel. The LCD also lists a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 300 cd/m2 brightness.

The CV24 includes a four-port USB 2.0 hub, along with an all-in-one cable that provides Mini DisplayPort, USB 2.0 and DC power connections. The base also integrates a hinge mechanism for adjusting the tilt angle of the screen.

The CV24 is now available directly from the company for $400.

    No indication on the site on what technology it uses.
    If it's a TFT it's not worth the $400.
    If it's an IPS screen- wow.

    TFT is a broad technology category.

    You meant to say Twisted Nematic (TN), not 'TFT'.

    not matte

    would be good if it offered a matte alternative to the all-glossy Apple offerings
    their website make no mention of IPS - so the deal is lower quality screen for less money
    also wonder if Apple will issue a cease and desist order as the design is a very close copy of Apple's own

    This is another infamous Jack Campbell venture. This line of monitors has morphed more times than you can count on your hand, with empty promises of available models, prices, and availability dates. If you're unaware of Jack's previous escapades, please google his name before spending any money on his "products".

    TN Film; no HDCP

    That will limit the market. Tough sell if you can't play purchased iTunes video content on your low-end display.
