Mitsubishi Intros Viseo 24.1 inch Black LCD

Mitsubishi made a return to black with the Viseo MDT243WG satin black. This 24.1 inch LCD monitor has a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (WUXGA), and comes with a matte-black finish. The panel has a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, maximum brightness of 500 cd/m², and access time of 5 ms. It takes input from two HDMI connectors (perhaps to connect to different sources of video and audio, or different audio/video sources altogether). Apart from HDMI, DVI-D, S-video and D-Sub are available. The monitor embeds a stereo 2x 5W speaker set. At 99,800 Yen (€745), it's your average professional-grade monitor.

I suppose their car manufacturing department is taking a beating so their wading into the IT market. NEVER heard of mitsubishi making monitors.

Cars, Aeroplanes, rice cookers, microwaves, air con units & a few other house hold appliances = YES but nothing computer related...

As far as I know 5ms is the trademark of TN.

EDIT: 1000$? War has changed.

Mussy, just because 2ms TN panels exist, doesn't mean that most companies will use them.

just because its 5ms, is no reason for them to not call it 2ms like they always do :P

Not everyone is like Thermaltake, who have unfathomably legitimate 150CFM/20dbA fans, for realz. And besides, Mitsubishi are respected. Why would they pull a stunt that no one could ever call them guilty on because there is practically no difference between 2ms and 5ms.. huh?

Huh? They've always made LCD monitors. Heck I have an old 24.1 (they seem to always use the .1) monitor myself that's at least 5 years old.
Heck they make HDTVs, washing machines, dryers, etc. I remember back in the day Mitsubishi made one of the best 50+ HDTV in the market. That was before thinning out of LCD though.

Wow, I hadn't even thought of the price seriously.

You can get TWO 2408WFP's for that price. Those are the best monitors around.

Heck, you may even be able to find THREE 2407WFP-HC's refurbished on Dell's own site.

Monitor and thin bezel is good. FUGLY base, looks like the cheaper end of consumer, not something I would care to own.

Ah, again the car company manages to return.

Seriously the CRT monitors rock in their day from Mitsubishi. Hope they can find a way back to where they belong, the LED monitor industry. Im checking out reviews when this monitor comes out.
