I-O Data Unveils New WLED-Backlit Full-HD Monitor

I-O Data unveiled its latest monitor, the sleek and stylish-looking LCD-MF221CBR. This WLED-backlit LCD monitor is sized at 21.5-inches, with a power draw of just 18.3W during normal use (27W max.), and offers full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution with 5 ms response time, an honest-sounding 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,000:1 normal contrast ratio), and maximum brightness of 250 cd/m². It also packs 1W stereo speakers. Display inputs include DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub. Pricing is not known, it will start shipping in early November.

That seems to be a pretty green Monitor.. 18 watts ... thats about the same as a extra low wattage florescent light bulb.

a compact fluorescent bulb to replace a 100w incandescent bulb are normally about 24w or less, so really less than a lightbulb, pretty impressive.

But :cry: 1920x1080, i want a 1920x1200 or above led backlit monitor.

Hey i want my extra 691,200 pixels in my triple monitor setup :p and the cost/gpu power needed for 7860x1600 is a little too much for me.

I will probably have to get 3 26" Iiyama 1920x1200's but is it wrong for me to want an led backlit monitor at the res i want?
to me it's like if amd and nvidia stopped making the 5870/6970 or 480 because the 5850/6950 or 470 is enough and people don't need that little extra more.

Oh and i will cry all i like :cry: :p

nooo its like people want a 1200mb RAM 5850 instead of 1080mb xD get over the 120 pixels or get a 2048x1152 monitor

I would have loved my monitor to be WLED though :D

:laugh: i do understand your point, it is very little difference for most people but i want every last pixel i can get, upgrading from 1024 to 1050 it made little difference to me if i chose 1050 or 1080 my problem now is that i want as much as possible and 1200 is not much more than 1080 and can cost less but to go from 1080 or 1200 to 1440 over triples the cost and to go from 1080/1200 to 1600 is quadruple the cost

I would happly get a 2048x1152 if i could, the problem is where i get my hardware only has 1080, 1200, 1440 and 1600, i don't want to spend a crazy ammount for 3 monitors, like $4000 on 27" 1440p screens or $5300 on 30" 1600p when i can get 26" 1200p for $1180.

What can i say, i'm a cheap bear :roll:

WLED huh. Very nice. Thanks for showing the actual contrast ratio. Hopefully pricing comes out soon. Also, when did I/O start doing monitors? I thought they did external drives.

16:10 is dead, people need to move on, the industry chose to make the move so they could market things as "HD" and "1080p" it's all about buzz words.

16:10 is not dead..... yet :p
While it is still alive i shal be buying 16:10 monitors, i have always prefered 5:4 over 4:3 and 16:10 over 16:9 although the lack of new 16:10 monitors could just be a good reason to think screw normal monitors and go with something like 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160.
