I-O Data Intros Newer 21.3-inch HD LCD Monitor

About a week into introducing the high-definition LCD-MF242X family of 23.6 inch monitors, I-O Data adds another one to its ranks, the 21.3 inch LCD-MF221XGBR. The new monitor seems to be more of a scaled-down version of the LCD-MF242X. Dimensions aside, it has an identical feature-set.

The monitor comes with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (1080p-ready), and an LCD response-time of 5 ms. It comes with a maximum brightness of 300 cd/m², static contrast-ratio of 1,000:1 and dynamic ratio of 10,000:1. Coming with a generous set of connectivity options, the monitor takes input from DVI, D-Sub and HDMI 1.2a connectors. It tips the scales at 4.5 kg (around 9.92 lbs). Backed by a three-year company warranty, the LCD-MF221XGBR sells for around US $227.

Good Info :rockout:



I am amazed at how many monitor manufactures don't list color depth. It's very importent to get true vibrant colors/.

The ones that cut corners use Display Colors 16 Million

But the best ones to get are TRUE Display Colors 16.7 Million

always check color depth, especially if you do any kind of graphics!

What would 16:10 be considered, that is what my screen is at?

16:10 is the PC's usual aspect ratio for widescreen monitors, like 1920x1200. 1680x1050 (your monitor) is also 16:10.

Movies are usually 16:9, and 720P and 1080P HD content is optimized for 16:9. Basically, using a computer monitor you will get two thin black bars on top and bottom when viewing HD movies.
