In November 2010 FlatpanelsHD unveiled NECâ€™s new model with IPS. EA232WMi is the successor to the much acclaimed EA231WMi model. The price and release date for the new EA232WMi has now been announced.
NEC says that the LED backlight ensures a low 31W energy consumption value compared to 43W on the current EA231WMi without LED. NEC also mentions a 1920x1080 resolution in the 16:9 aspect ratio and 14 ms response time. The IPS panel provides 178/178 degree viewing angles and a 1000:1 static contrast ratio.
NEC has announced that EA232WMi will be available from December 2010, or January 2011 in some countries. The suggested retail price is ÂŁ316 or around $500. We hope to receive a EA232WMi very soon for testing, and will keep you updated.
