Gateway FHD and FHX displays get 2010 redesign

Gateway this morning reworked its FHD and FHX displays to get a significant makeover, including one big break from traditional design. The FHD2303L has a rare asymmetric neck and a very thin base that creates the appearance that the display is floating in mid-air. It and the others are based on TN panels but run at a native 1080p and are LED backlit with a very high 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 250cd/m2 brightness.

The 21.5-inch FHX2152L and 24-inch FHX2402L have much more conventional designs but are slightly faster, refreshing pixels at 2ms where the FHD2303L sits at 5ms. All three have both DVI and VGA for input, but the 23- and 24-inch screens add HDMI for a game console or other TV-style source.

Gateway plans to ship the trio of displays before the end of the month at prices of $190 for the FHX2152L and $250 for either the FHD2303L or the FHX2402L.

    Two words that can never go together are "Gateway" and "Style".

    Amazing how Gateway's 'super-stylized' LCD looks not much different than many other LCDs. "OMG! The monitor arm is off to the side! I need one!"

    And if you want to make your monitor look 'like it's floating on air', get a VESA mount and attach it to the wall.
