People checking out retail stores in Japan may run across a certain monitor, or pair of monitors, that a company from the Country of Sunrise completed not too long ago.
is again conveying news about products that have only just been launched in Japan.
The company now getting attention is Green House, having introduced the GH-AAH203SDLB and the GH-AAH203SDLW.
They are the same monitor (GH-AAH203SDL), but colored in black and white, respectively.
As far as we can tell, this is one of those mid-range displays that most people should be able to afford. The price is 12,800 JPY, which translates into $160 and 123 Euro, according to exchange rates.
The first thing that might draw attention is the native resolution. Even though this is a widescreen panel, Full HD isn't supported. The resolution is 1,600 x 900 instead.
Then again, though some may disagree, it isn't that easy to tell the difference between HD (1,366 x 768) and Full HD videos on a screen with a size of just 20 inches.
Moving on, since we're describing the panel's assets, we may as well mention the contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and, why not, the DCR too (dynamic contrast ratio) of 5,000,000:1.
The brightness doesn't stand out, at 250 cd/m2, but it isn't really low either. It is just fine, as long as the room where the monitor is kept isn't flooded with sunlight.
Other specs include a response time of 5ms, viewing angles of 160°/160° (horizontal and vertical), a pair of 4W stereo speakers and two display outputs (DVI and D-Sub).
Finally, the low-power white LED backlight power saving mode can reduce power draw all the way down to 1W (the maximum is 30W).
Shipments haven't begun yet, but they should kick off at some point in late May (2012). In the meantime, the product page can be found here
