Sharp Systems of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corp., has expanded its LCD monitor line-up to include the LL-T17D3 and the LL-T18A1, which are, respectively, 17-inch and 18.1-inch displays.
The LL-T17D3 is a high-resolution 17-inch SXGA (1280 x 1024) monitor that sports stereo speakers and is compatible with analog and digital video inputs. It has 250-nit brightness, a 500:1 contrast ratio, and a 17ms response rate. The Sharp LL-T17D3 features a color management function compatible with the “sRGB” international standard for color reproduction. The monitor is also equipped with a “Vivid” mode for dynamic primary colors, and “Standard” mode for displaying colors beyond the sRGB standard.
In addition, the LL-T17D3 LCD monitor includes menu settings that can be automatically adjusted for images and text. The menus can be displayed in eight languages and the settings can be locked to prevent accidental changes. The LL-T17D3 is available in white or black hues; it has an estimated street price of US$499.
The Sharp LL-T18A1 is a dual-input LCD monitor (analog and digital) with a viewing angle of 160-degrees, both horizontally and vertically. It has a contrast ratio of 350:1 and a brightness of 250 nits. The monitor offers white balance (color temperature) adjustment that can be switched from “warm” to “cool” by selecting from one of the five presets, or by adjusting red, blue, and green values individually. Like the LL-T17D3, it features a color management function compatible with the “sRGB” international standard for color reproduction.
The LL-T18A1 boasts an “automatic screen adjustment” function, which will adjust the clock, phase and screen position (horizontal/vertical) to display the optimal screen for the analog input signal. This can be done by selecting “Adjustment-auto” in the menu settings. Also available in black or white, and compatible with VESA-standard free mount for wall or arm mounting, the Sharp LL-T18A1 has an estimated street price of $699.
