Expect more IPS-based LCD monitors

By: Array

Monitor manufacturers are changing things up by not only offering more IPS panels, but changing up the screen sizes between 21 and 25-inch. Dell launched a 24-inch UltraSharp monitor a few weeks ago based on an IPS panel and with a few trade-offs were able to get the price down considerably when compared to the U2410 which is aimed at the professional market. Mitsubishi, AOC and Viewsonic are already offering or at least, expected to offer 23-inch IPS-based panels this year.

Why the explosion of interest in IPS panels? You can thank the demand of the iPad 2 and the promise of wide viewing angels. Compared to monitors using twisted nematic (TN) panels, IPS panels are about $35 more expensive to make and that number escalates when the screen size goes up. Monitors using IPS panels are also feature-packed, usually including USB hubs, extra video inputs and so on, which also drives the price up.


I think it's a great move, IPS panels are gorgeous and if we can see a mix of 120Hz/3D-capable IPS panels in the near future, well count me in as excited.

ViewSonic's 23.6-inch V3D245 3D Vision LCD coming this month

By: Array

Almost 8 months since its introduction at CES, ViewSonic is finally preparing its V3D245 3D Vision-ready 23.6-inch for the market with it hitting North American shelves mid to late this month.

The monitor while being a 120Hz, 3D capable panel bundled with a pair of active shutter glasses, does depend on NVIDIA's 3D Vision experience with its built-in wireless emitter, meaning you'll of course need to be using an NVIDIA based graphics card.


The rest of the monitors specs is much of a standard fare with a native resolution of 1920x1080, dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1, 2ms response and 2W SRS Premium Sound speakers.


ViewSonic has tacked on a $499 USD price tag for the V3D245, which is backed by a 3 year warranty. Refer to the source link below for the official announcement.

Apple set to release Thunderbolt-equipped displays?

By: Array

MacRumors have picked up on a number of non-posted images from, showing Apple having a $999 display. In the pics, the display has a new part number (which is in the URL), and a newer background to match the default wallpaper of Mac OS X Lion which is being released next week. What makes this interesting is the below pic which shows two of the newer displays, with one plugged into the other.

Maybe Apple are allowing mirrored or extended displays through USB, but most likely this is Thunderbolt-powered and it's down with the latest-generation iMacs which share many design similarities with the LED cinema display. If Apple wants to push Thunderbolt, this would definitely be the way to go about it. On something like a MacBook Pro, using the Thunderbolt port just to power a monitor would use up the port, but daisy-chaining them like this would allow a user to use the Thunderbolt I/O on the MBP, then daisy-chain something directly into the Cinema Display.


Thunderbolt is capable of daisy chaining up to seven Thunderbolt-equipped devices together, whilst retaining full speed across ever single one of them, this is thanks to the existing DisplayPort and PCI-Express data protocols to open up what you can do with a single port into multiple uses and at high speeds.
