by Reads (1,483)

The new displays on offer are part of ViewSonic’s new Windows 8-certified “TD 40” series. There are three new models in the lineup, including a 23-inch TD2340, the 27-inch TD2740, and the 32-inch TD3240. Each comes with a complete 10-finger multitouch capacitive panel, as well as Full HD 1920×1080 resolution.

The new displays come replete with a hardy, scratch-resistant glass coating, as well as IPS technology for 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Additionally, ViewSonic is promising a sort of ridiculous 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio; that’s something of a meaningless metric without the static contrast numbers. The 23-inch TD2340 comes with a stand that can pivot, tilt, or lay completely flat; the 27-inch TD2740 also comes with what ViewSonic is calling a “picture frame stand” which likewise allows the monitor to go flat. 

Each monitor has HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort video inputs; whereas the 23-inch and 27-inch displays are geared for home use, the 32-inch TD3240 is being pushed towards use in kiosk and digital signage arrangements.

ViewSonic’s TD2340 will hit later this month for $599, the 32-inch TD3240 will launch next month for $2,499, and the 27-inch TD2740 will arrive in April with an estimated MSRP of $799.
