NEC has a new workplace-type monitor in the EA241WM. It’s billed as an “enterprise” monitor but if you really wanted, I bet you could sneak one into your home. It’s a 24-inch widescreen LCD with 1920×1200 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m² brightness, and a magical base that allows it to tilt, swivel, and pivot.
There’s also a built-in four port USB hub, speakers, HDMI and DVI-D connections, and HDCP support. It’ll begin shipping sometime this month for $549.
NEC also announced the 19-inch EA191M, which has a 5:4 aspect ratio, 1280×1024 resolution, 1500:1 contrast ratio, and 250 cd/m² brightness. It’ll also be available this month and will be priced at $379.
Here’s the full release:
