The display industry is one that has been more or less doing well, unlike that of DRAM chips, so it is not so surprising to learn that CTL decided to formally launch a trio of its own.The past year has seen LED-backlit displays gain a significantly larger market share than before, as CCFL models lost their price advantage.
As such, hearing that companies are focusing more on them, and some even giving up CCFL altogether, did not come across as a shock.
Now, CTL has taken its turn at providing the market with some new additions, three to be more specific.
They are all Full HD-capable monitors (their native resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and, as one may have already guessed, have different screen sizes, so as to appeal to as wide a consumer range as possible.
The LP2151 is the smallest of the team, with a diagonal of 21.5 inches which should already be enough for mainstream customers.
The other two, dubbed LP2361 and LP2701, have sizes of 23.6 and 27 inches, respectively, but are otherwise identical to their smaller sibling.
In addition to the already mentioned Full HD support, the trio boasts a brightness of 300 cd/m2, as well as a dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) or 5,000,000:1 (the static contrast ratio is 1,000:1).
Furthermore, the GTG (gray to gray) response time is of 2ms, while D-Sub, DVI and HDMI inputs cover the connectivity side of things.
All of these are somehow packed inside what the press release describes as a frame that is a quarter of the thickness of other LCDs. Finally, CTL threw in an anti-glare coating over the LED-backlit LCD panel, to ensure visibility.
The prices of the LP2151, LP2361 and LP2701 are of $216, $258 and $330, respectively. Users need only go here to find them.
