ViewSonic VX2739wm

is, unsurprisingly, being targeted at gamers, but it's also multimedia-friendly with 1080p HD resolution and SRS Premium Sound stereo 2W speakers.

There's also a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,200:1 typical), 300cd/m2 brightness, a trio of inputs – HDMI, DVI and VGA – and a four port USB 2.0 hub for easy peripheral connectivity.  Finally, a VESA mount on the back makes for straightforward wall-mounting.

The ViewSonic VX2739wm is available for preorder now,

priced at $349.99

with a three year warranty.  No word on when it's expected to begin shipping, however.
