Evesham Technology have released their 15.2 inch widescreen LCD monitor – the T1505 – that can also be used as a TV.
It’s compact and Evesham say that makes it perfect for use in cars, boats and caravans – it comes with a 12 volt adapter – but perhaps you’re more likely to use it as a PC monitor and sneak a bit of TV on the side.
It’s budget price does mean that its response rate is not as hot as some of the newer HD monitors, so gamers may not appreciate it, but for general use I reckon 16ms is acceptable, and fine for standard def TV programmes.
It has a standard AV input so you can plug in an aerial, a Freeview box, or indeed anything else that outputs, albeit at a lower quality than digital inputs.
It’s a widescreen 16:9 display but shows a top resolution of 1024×768, so not quite sure how this is configured. That’s what the spec sheet says, though. It’s got built-in speakers and a fairly wide viewing angle of 150 degrees in all directions. Contrast ratio is 450:1 and brightness 450cd/m2. It weighs 1.75kg.
Retailing at £229.99 and available now from Evesham
