HP has unveiled a new 0.4-inches (1 cm) thick 22-inch monitor called L2201X. The monitor builds on a VA panel with LED backlight.
HP L2201x with VA panel
HP’s new monitor is amongst the slimmest today and it even features a VA panel that ensures better picture quality than the typical TN based monitors that are dominating today.
The design is made in a glossy black finish with a tilt stand on the back. Because the monitor is extremely slim HP has found it necessary to put inputs on the side of the frame instead of on the back. Here you find 1 DisplayPort and one headphone jack.
Other technical features include: MVA panel, Edge LED, 1920x1080 resolution, 5000:1 static contrast ratio, 72 % color gamut and 16 ms (on/off) response time. HP also mentions 178/178 degree viewing angles and 250 cd/m2 brightness.
HP L2201x is expected to be in stores from June 2011. The price is 250 US dollars.
