New LG desktop LCDs
In addition to their LCD TVs, LG has just revealed five new LCD computer monitors. These are the L196WTQ-WF, L206WTQ-WF, L226WTQ-WF, L226WA-WF, and the L246WP, coming in 19-, 20-, 22- and 24-inch sizes, respectively. The L226WA-WF is distinguished from its brother by including a variety of unspecified AV inputs. It is known however that all the monitors will have HDCP and DVI inputs, and the L246WP will support component input and resolutions up to 1920x1200. The performance of the 246 is otherwise degraded from the other monitors, having 1,000:1 contrast and 8ms response versus figures of 3,000:1 and 2ms. Like most of LG's TVs, nothing has been said about cost or exact release dates.
