Toshiba beefs up TFT LCD monitor range

The panel, which has a 20.8-inch colour TFT (thin film transistor) LCD (liquid crystal display) panel, is a high-performance model designed for workstation use. It supports up to 3,200 by 2,400 pixel QUXGA (Quad Ultra Extended Graphics Array) resolution, has a 0.132-millimetre dot pitch or 192 pixels per inch, can display 16.77 million colours and has a maximum luminance of 200 candela per square metre.

The company presently offers display driver software for Sun Microsystems' Solaris 7 operating system and is planning a Windows 2000 driver.

Toshiba launched the display in Japan earlier this year and hopes to sell around 3,000 of the monitors worldwide during its first year on sale. It will carry a price tag of around $US3,000 when it goes on sale sometime in the third quarter. Australian availability has yet to be determined.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
