<p><strong>Sydney, Australia</strong> - <strong>3 December 2008</strong> - AOC has
announced the new Toriba 18.5” 831S+ with a 16:9 aspect ratio LCD panel
– fast becoming a new trend in the monitor market. The native 16:9 aspect
ratio means that typical HD media can be viewed full screen without distortion
or annoying black bars. 4:3 sources can be freely adjusted between 4:3 and 16:9
The monitor has a streamlined style that should appeal to all users, leading screen
performance and a highly competitive price. It boasts a dynamic contrast ratio
of 10,000:1 along with a 5ms response time. The 831S+ will make an excellent budget
monitor for home and classroom use, especially where full screen video viewing
is common.<br/>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
