Packard Bell unveiled its latest sleek and swanky display, the 23-inch Maestro 230 LED. As the name might suggest, it's an LED-illuminated LCD display. With a full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080 px), the display boasts of 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 250 cd/m², and response time of 5 ms. It takes input from D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI. Slated for market release in April, the Packard Bell Maestro 230 LED is expected to be priced at €199.

The Packard Bell machines I have come across were total rubbish.
Then NEC started making them...still total rubbish.

Then they made it even worse by stopping support in the Southern Hemisphere so if drivers were needed we had to scavenge for them elsewhere.

Maybe they will be able to make a come back with these monitors.

Packard Bell is a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Acer.
Originally the company produced discount computers in the US and Canada, it later became a leader in the European market.
NEC took it over in the late 1990s.
Acer acquired it in 2008.

How can such a rubbish company own eMachines and Packard Bell as well.

They must be making the cash due to the average consumer going.
Wow that's cheap!

I actually contacted a moderator about it. Not to get it removed, just to ask what they thought about it. No answer.

isn't this is just a re-branded monitor? Acer released it awhile ago, and now they own Packard, and threw their name on it as a new product?

I bet they have to counterweight the monitor so it is able to have a center of mass over the correct spot on the stand. In other words, I guarantee this weighs more than it should.

major blast from the past... I never really trusted Packard Bell when they made computers and I don't trust 95% of things made by Acer (or its subsidiaries), so this monitor is (at least) a double fail to me.

Why? I don't think poking fun at a certain popular religion is disturbing.
