16:9 LCD displays compared

Posted on Wednesday, February 01 2006 @ 00:18:10 CET by

Tom's Hardware Guide took a look at some 16:9 format widescreen desktop LCD displays. Many notebooks already feature widescreen displays but they aren't quite common in the desktop market.

THG compared the following six LCD panels: Acer AL2032WM, Dell 2405FPW, Philips 200W6, Sony MFM-HT75W, Sony SDM-P234 and the ViewSonic VP231WB.
Until now PC monitors in 16:9 format have been only a niche market. The format was widespread on laptop computers, but consumers seemed to be unenthusiastic about desktop monitors in "Wide" format. And until now we've agreed with them. Aside from the fact that video games are rarely designed for movie format, performance frankly wasn't up to snuff. And prices were clearly an obstacle. But we've had the pleasant surprise of finding a few monitors that aren't bad at all. And for once, we've found two from Sony that are well worth taking a look at.
You can read their full comparison over here.
