Alphascan J2290D Crystal LCD monitor is a tad gimmicky

In an effort to stand out from the overcrowded sea of LCD monitor offerings these days, companies are going to odd efforts to add something–anything–that will bring attention to their products. Think of those scented laptops, for instance. But Alphascan has something different in mind.

A lot of companies have resorted to sticking diamonds on their devices to add some add worth and attraction. And the Alphascan J2290D Crystal LCD Monitor adds the sparkles by means of 97 Swarovski crystals.

Luckily, this monitor is more than a glorified bauble. It has a 2ms response time and a 12,000:1 contrast ratio. Not too bad at all. But the only problem is we have no idea how much this shiny display will cost. But I'd bet it'll be a pretty penny.
