BenQ just announced the first HDMI computer monitor. Named FP241W, it supports the full 1080p HD resolution.
FP241W enables 5Gbps data transfers, but eliminates the need for signal conversions, ensuring the best quality video. In addition, unlike other high-performance displays, the FP241W uses only a single HDMI cable, which carries the best quality video signals. The result is less clutter and hassle-free installation.
With 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, the FP241W can display more content while maintaining crisp details and legible text. And its wide-screen format ensures no image distortion or cropping. It has pixel pitch of 0.258, a brightness of 500 and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The response time is 16 ms GTG.
Thanks to its large screen, FP241W can display two complete A4 windows side-by-side allowing you to experience an easier way to display your data.
The FP241W is equipped with two USB ports located on the right side of the bezel and another on the upper part of the bezel for connecting other peripherals, such as webcams, USB keyboards, digital cameras and digital audio players.
The power consumption is lower than 95W which makes it an energy saving LCD.
If you consider a HDMI videocard, Sapphire has one in store for you. It costs $155.
The release date is August 2007 at a price of $1000.
