That's right folks! Porsche have teamed up with Samsung to help design their latest LCD monitor, the 171P. It's a 17" monitor and at a price of around $US1200, I don't think i'll be buying one any time soon. However, PCStats seem to be rolling in the cash as they have posted a nice review of the monitor. Here's a quote:
"Samsung haven't skimped on the technical specs either - heck we'd roast them if they put a cheap LCD screen in this baby! With mouth watering specs like a 500:1 contrast ratio, 170 / 170 degree viewing angles, a dot pitch of 0.264mm and luminosity of 250 nits there isn't much room here to criticize anything. The pixel refresh rates are not listed in the spec sheet we received with this pre-sale review unit (price as yet undecided), but I would place them at about 25ms or lower.The stand is integral with the display, and pivots a full 90 degrees for portrait viewing."
