We wrote about an upcoming 23.6-inch LCD widescreen monitor from I-O Data, and now we are showing you the LCD-MF234XPBR, LCD-MF234XBR, and LCD-MF224XBR.
Contrary to what some may think, these aren't much more advanced or feature-packed than the aforementioned display.
In fact, they actually cost less, with the exception of the LCD-MF234XPBR, and even that one isn't much more expensive.
The main asset of the trio in question is their ability to retain visibility even under sunlight, though they still have their limits.
This is achieved through the use of anti-glare panels, or matte screens, as they are otherwise called.
That said, the company outfitted
them all with dual-HDMI, DVI, and D-sub inputs, plus 3W stereo speakers.
The LCD-MF234XPBR measures 23 inches and boasts an IPS display with a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (Full HD).
Its response time is as low as 8ms (when Overdrive is enabled) and the brightness is of 250 cd/m2, while the viewing angles are of 178 degrees, both horizontally and vertically.
Furthermore, the contrast ratio is of 1,000:1, while the DCR (dynamic contrast ratio) is 80,000:1 and the price is of 21,800 JPY.
That sum is the equivalent of $260 and 196.17 Euro, based on exchange rates.
The second display, LCD-MF234XBR, has the same size as above, but a TN panel. Its resolution is the same Full HD, but the response time is much better: 5ms typical and 2ms with overdrive.
The viewing angles are of 170/160 degrees, which is decent, and everything else is unchanged. The price is 19,800 JPY ($236 / 178.17 Euro).
The third monitor, LCD-MF224XBR, measures 21.5 inches, but otherwise has the same specs as the LCD-MF234XBR. It costs 17,800 JPY ($212.6 / 160.17 Euro).
Sales should already be underway, in Japan at least. Retailers should have the newcomers up for order soon if they don't already, so keep checking with your local web stores.
