Westinghouse have announced a 19-inch LCD monitor with an unusually high resolution. The L1916HW runs at 1680 x 1050, capable of displaying 36-percent more on-screen content than a 19-inch display at the more typical 1440 x 900 resolution. Contrast is a healthy 3,000:1 while response time is a mere 2ms.
Controls are all touch-sensitive, embedded into the gloss-black bezel, and the viewing angle is 170/160. Westinghouse are particularly aiming the L191HW at graphic design professionals, but the specs would probably make it a decent gaming monitor too.
Inputs include DVI-D (supporting HDCP), D-Sub VGA and an audio input for the integrated 2 x 2.5w speakers. The Westinghouse L1916HW is available now, with a MRSP of $199. It meets both ENERGY STAR and RoHS standards for energy-efficiency.
