Acer announces worlds first 50000:1 contrast ratio LCD monitor

24in G24

Acer has introduced the world's first LCD monitor offering a 50000:1 contrast ratio.

Aimed at high-end PC gamers, the Acer G24 features a stylish copper bezel and supports high-definition graphics.

The 24in 1920x1200 resolution widescreen LCD also features Acer OD (overdrive) technology. Acer claims this significantly improves grey-to-grey levels by reducing deviation in transition time.

The G24 has Acer CrystalBrite technology with 400-nit brightness. According to Acer, this technology promotes clearer images and sharper edges while minimising ambient light reflection.

The monitor is optimised for Windows Vista and supports HDMI for instant connectivity to DVD players, set-top boxes and high-definition consoles. It has been designed to match the Aspire Predator desktop gaming PC, in order to provide a complete gaming package.

Acer has not yet announced pricing or launch details.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
