Acer P244W 1080p monitor
Computer manufacturer Acer has announced a new LCD monitor, the P244W. The display is being aimed at high-end buyers, and as such measures 24 inches, with support for 16:9 widescreen resolutions up to 1080p (1900x1080). Appropriately the monitor is equipped with an HDMI input, which lets users connect the likes of game consoles and Blu-ray movie players. Regular computer inputs should also be included.
The monitor has a 2ms gray-to-gray response time, and a maximum contrast ratio of 20,000:1, although this is not native but instead produced through dynamic control. Acer has not announced pricing or availability information.
