Mitsubishi Viseo MDT241WG
Mitsubishi is readying a fairly remarkable LCD set called the Viseo MDT241WG. Immediately noticeable is the bezel of the screen, which apart from speakers at the bottom, is trimmed as close as that of many computer monitors. But the similarities do not stop there, as despite measuring only 24.1 inches, the set has native support of resolutions up to 1920x1200. Buyers are often limited to sets that are 40 inches or larger before 1080p becomes an option.
The 241 also sports a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and Mitsubishi's MV engine, which should reduce the impact of blur, although response time is rated at a slow 16ms. The set will arrive first in Japan on June 1st, for the equivalent of $1,146. Akihabara News hints at a possible American release.
