The newest edition to AOC's AireLED Series is a 23-inch monitor with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel and a price tag that won't necessarily scare off budget conscious shoppers. AOC's new Aire Pro i2353Ph hits retail at $199, and with 23 inches of screen real estate, this is one of the least expensive IPS monitors in the market with a large enough panel to not feel like you're sacrificing size for quality.
One of the biggest arguments against 3D technology is the cost, especially as more and more 3D content becomes available, which used to be one of the other major concerns. You know no longer have to ask, 'What the heck would I use a 3D monitor for?,' and with the launch of Hewlett-Packard's new 23-inch 3D monitor (2311GT), you don't have to sweat the price tag, either.
ViewSonic expanded its 3D portfolio this morning with the launch of its V3D231, a new 23-inch 3D-ready LED monitor with a 2ms response time, 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio (dynamic, of course), and affordable price tag. As you might expect, ViewSonic is really playing up the ultra-fast response time, saying it's equally suited for 3D gaming and delivering broadcast quality, full-motion video.
The next generation of MultiSync EA Series monitors from NEC sport LED backlighting, a thinner bezel, advanced connectivity, and a human sensor that detects user activity in front of the display and reduces power by up to 95 percent. Kicking off the new series is the EA273WM, a 27-inch display with a 16:9 TN panel and a Full HD 1920x1080 screen resolution.
BenQ is getting ready to release a new 22-inch LED display intended for business users, but is sexy enough to find its way into a few homes as well. It's the BenQ BL2201PTE and according to the translated press release, it's available in "classic black." The pictures, however, show a glossy white bezel with somewhat of an Apple flair, but arguably better looking.
Back in December, we reviewed LG’s E2350v—a serviceable display that featured a two-way stand and energy-efficient design as well as some poor quality blacks and a frustrating menu experience—so it was with a skeptical eye that we tackled its big brother, the E2370v. An IPS display with a slim brushed aluminum bezel, the E2370v shows that it’s nothing like its little brother.
If you’re on the lookout for a 3D monitor, the number of options at your disposal has just gone up by one with the launch of ViewSonic’s V3D231 LED monitor. Meanwhile, those of you who can’t stand 3D displays that require special glasses can safely add the V3D231 to the list of 3D monitors to avoid.
Those of you rocking and rolling over in Europe have six new LED monitors to choose from today, all from Acer and all sporting slim profiles that measure just 13mm (barely more than half an inch, for the anti metric system crowd). These are TN panels ranging in size from 19 inches to 24 inches with contrast ratios of up to 100,000,000:1 (dynamic, of course).
ViewSonic tells us its new 24-inch LED monitor (VX2451MHP-LED) is designed to compliment an Apple Mac environment, but is also appropriate "for those who appreciate good design and want something different." What's different about this display is its all white frame and stand complimented by an ultra-slim body that measures just a hair over 1.4 inches (3.6 centimeters if you want to be all metric about it).
AOC just sent us word about a new 16-inch USB monitor (e1649fwu) it designed to transform your single-display notebook into a dual-monitor or multi-monitor machine with minimal fuss. Simply plug it into a free USB port and you'll be off and running with multiple displays; there's no power cord or VGA cable to mess around with.
