Eizo 24-inch DisplayPort
Japanese company Eizo on Wednesday introduced a new 24-inch LCD monitor, the FlexScan S2432W-H, which is one of its first to rely on the newer DisplayPort video standard. sports both a 1920x1200 resolution and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. Other specs include a brightness rating of 360cd/m2 and a true black-to-white pixel response time of 16ms, while the neutral (gray-to-gray) response time is 6ms.
In addition to the DisplayPort, the monitor also sports an HDCP-compatible DVI-D port along with a VGA port. MacBook Pro users will theoretically have the option of hooking up the S2432W-H to their DVI-free notebooks through future mini-to-full DisplayPort adapters. The monitor also sports an EcoView feature that automatically adjusts the monitor's brightness based on the ambient light level.
The viewing angle from all sides is rated at the same 178 degrees. The monitor has built-in speakers, along with a headphone jack. There are also two USB 2.0 jacks for added expandability. Users can adjust the height of the monitor in a range of 3.2 inches. The monitor also swivels up to 70 degrees to the left or right, and will tilt up to 40 degrees.
Due for a release in Japan on December 10th, the Eizo FlexScan S2432W-H is priced at the equivalent of $960. [via Impress]
