HP BrightView LCDs
In addition to four new multimedia PCs, HP is introducing two new widescreen LCD monitors at CES 2008. Using HDMI and VGA to connect with hardware, the w2207h and w2408h use HP's BrightView technology to provide vibrant image quality. The w2207h is a 22-inch model that supports a maximum screen resolution of 1680 by 1050; the display is also able to pivot 90-degrees for either a portrait or landscape view. Integrated speakers reduce desktop clutter, and the foot allows users to place their keyboard out of the way when it is not in use. HP will be shipping the w2207h in February, selling for $350.
The w2408h is a 24-inch model, using a maximum screen resolution of 1920 by 1200, and supports the same features as the w2207h. In addition, users can take advantage of four built-in USB ports to connect their devices, while an ambient light sensor checks available lighting, and adjusts the display accordingly. The w2408h is also shipping in February, and HP will offer the monitor for $500.
