New Planar PX monitors
Display maker Planar has released three new widescreen monitors in its PX series generally aimed at professionals. Leading the range is the PX2611W, a 26-inch LCD capable of resolutions up to 1920x1200 and a quick pixel response time of 5ms. It also boasts a DVI-D connection with HDCP support for encrypted movie sources and can integrates a four-port USB 2.0 hub. The stand features 2.2 inches of height motion and a 340-degree swivel.
The 24-inch PX2411W is similar but with a 6ms response time and a stand without swivel actions, instead highlighting 3.5 inches of height adjustment and a 25-degree tilt. Finally, the PX2210MW omits stand movement entirely, and scales resolution down to 1680x1050; in exchange, it gains built-in speakers and a headphone jack. The latter sells for $299 while the 2411W and 2611W sell for $599 and $949 respectively.
