Lenovo Readies New ThinkVision Monitors

Lenovo is readying the launch of three new ThinkVision monitors, the 19-inch ThinkVision LT1952, the 22-inch LT2252p and the 24-inch LT2452p. The three feature LED-backlit LCD panels, among these, the LT2452p features an IPS (in-plane switching) panel, that ensures good viewing angles. A selling-point here is the UL Environment SPC Gold certification.

The LT1952p features a native resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 170°/160° viewing angles, the LT2252p has the same specifications, except for its 1680 x 1050 pixels resolution. The LT2452p leads the pack with its 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, 178°/ 178° viewing angles thanks to the IPS panel. A built-in USB hub, and a more flexible stand that allows tilting, swiveling and lifting adjustments, makes for the rest of this screen. The Lenovo ThinkVision LT1952, LT2252p, and LT2452p are priced at US $249.99, $339.99 and $449.99, respectively.

Price seems high for an IPS, to me, would like to see a review of it though for sure.

"ThickVision" because you have to be pretty thick to buy a y900, y1050 or y1080 IPS monitor. If you are going "pro" then y1200, y1440, y1600 and y2048 are the only feasible sensible reasonable rational responsible way to make progress. But the prices are good if you want a "budget" IPS.

Eeeexcept that 1200's are on their way out big time. 1080 is the king even if you and I don't like it.

And IPS monitors have gone down so much so the basic ones can hardly be called "pro" anymore.

There is nothing wrong with 1080 and it will still be king for some time to come as that's what the majority of content is made for.

Nothing wrong, but I would have liked 1200 more. ^^

I agree, but I just don't see why people get bent out of shape about it, it is what it is, and complaining how you want 16:10 will not make it happen. 1080 will be the standard for a long time to come, and it won't change until uHD becomes the standard which is nearly a decade away. Hopefully though monitor manufactureres realize I want a large screen with a larger resolution, rather than a 32" 1080P screen.

I don't know how is with Lenovo but my second hand 2004 IBM Thinkvision L170p 1280x1024 with (IPS?, VA?, panel) is wonderful and strong despite having a *high* black-to-dark gray response time :) if with Lenovo is the same, then the price is it worth it. They are IMO and experience top line.

The whole point is that there was a regression from 1200 to 1080 as a result of "consumer HD". The negative was that "enthusiast" or "workstation" or "professional" development and evolution HALTED if not stagnated. (We had y1200 10 years ago). The positive is the consumer volume that has driven the prices of TFTs down and this has benefited many. But actually, the "enthusiast" or "workstation" or "professional" user is still waiting for the market to catch up with their needs/desires/spending pocket.

Why do we bleat on about it? Because the more people we get on-side, the more often it is said, the more spending and purchasing decision criteria will change, and the more manufacturers will lean toward higher resolution and higher pixel density displays.

I HATE TO SAY THIS, but Apple really put the industry to shame with their high pixel density iPod 4 / iPhone 4 / iPad. It is about time the other industry players stepped up to the plate. BTW my 3 year old sony netbook has higher pixel density than what I can buy for my workstation at anything under $20,000

Nice for TV, not needed for PC.
