Iiyama Intros New ProLite 24-inch and 27-inch Desktop Monitors

Japanese display maker Iiyama introduced two additions to its ProLite series of desktop monitors, the 24-inch E2473HS and 27-inch E2773HS. The two feature X-Res technology, an image-enhancement feature that benefits blurry or low-resolution content, simulating higher resolution. The two utilize conventional TN-film LCD panels with LED backlit illumination. 1920 x 1080 pixels is the standard resolution for both models. The E2473HS features 2 ms (GTG) response time, 1000:1 CR with mega contrast DCR; while the E2773HS supports response time as low as 1 ms, 1200:1 CR with mega contrast DCR. 300 cd/m² is the maximum brightness for both models. Display inputs for both include D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI. Slated for late-November, the E2473HS is expected to be priced at 21,800 JPY (US $280), while the E2773HS goes for 25,800 JPY (US $331.2).

And I looked at the news posting with excitement...

only to see 1920 x 1080 pixels is the standard resolution for both models.

Seriously, it should be ILLEGAL to use the term "pro" with y1080. It is in breach of all European Advertising Standards.

Yes. y1080 is so yesterday. High end workstations always pushed the resolutions. But where are these monitors for professional users and enthusiasts? We had 2560x1600 a long time ago... and we are waiting for this resolution to get cheaper also for pixel density to increase so that we get 2560x1600 in a 21" space.

BUT NO, we are still waiting. While we wait, 2560x1440 has been launched, trying to find a gap in the market, but in itself making no progress. Not better quality, not higher pixel density, not hard enough on pricing to help us... and we are just not seeing new models or new entrants. There are only 3 or 4 players with just 1 or 2 offerings each.

AND IN THE MEANTIME Apple has come out with 2560x1800 in just 15", putting the whole PC industry and naysaying laggards to shame

Which camp are you in? Gunning for progress? Or digging a trench? :pimp:

I agree with this. There is just no excuse for monitor makers to not have higher pixel densities offered to us by now.
