Sharp Systems of America has released a new LCD monitor, the LL-T1620, which has a 16-inch viewable panel with SXGA (1280 X 1024) resolution. The monitor comes with a utility disk for both Mac and Windows systems.
The LL-T1620 utilizes a Sharp LCD panel with 60 percent more resolution than a standard XGA 15-inch LCD monitor, according to Herb Berkwits, director of LCD business development at Sharp Systems. The ultra-high pixel density of 100 pixels per inch results in sharper text and crystal-clear graphics, “yet the cost per pixel is among the lowest in the industry, making the LL-T1620 an extraordinary value,” he added.
The LL-T1620 features the Sharp ASV technology LCD panel that provides a 25 ms video response and super-wide display angles of 170 degrees both horizontally and vertically. This LCD panel employs Sharp’s Ultra High Aperture (UHA) technology for improved brightness (300 nits) coupled with reduced power consumption, Berkwits said. Plus, it sports AGLR, a multi-layer surface treatment that reduces reflectance to approximately one-third that of a conventional LCD by optical cancellation, thus maintaining superior contrast, velvety blacks, and fully saturated colors even in brightly-lit environments, he added.
The LL-T1620 has a bezel width of 16.3 mm and can be switched between two computers. Its dual inputs accommodate analog or digital (DVI) interface. The monitor’s integrated speakers fire downward to maintain the sleek look of the super-slim bezel.
The LL-T1620 is available in black or white (LL-T1620H) for an estimated street price of US$649 and will also be
