Following the industry trend of switching from 16:10 displays to 16:9 ones, LG has just unveiled the W2261V. That’s it up there. It’s got a 2ms response time, 1920×1080 resolution, and a rather lovely design.
One interesting feature, though, is a 4:3 aspect ratio option, for when you’re viewing stuff that refuses to come in 16:9. It means that it’ll display a smaller picture, but at least it won’t be horribly stretched.
No word on pricing or availability, but I’d wager “before Christmas” on the latter point. How attractive the monitor is will, at the end of the day, rest firmly on the cost, so when we hear, we’ll make sure you know.
