Yahoo! Finance: ViewSonic just announced the VT2230. The VT2230 is a 22″ LCD monitor that sports a 16:9 aspect ratio just like LCD TVs. And it is a LCD TV, a 1080p LCD TV at that. The 16:9 trend will most likely accelerate since some major LCD manufacturers can churn out 16:9 LCD panels more efficiently than they can 16:10. The 22-incher from ViewSonic features a very good 1000:1 contrast ratio, a fairly quick response time of 5ms and a brightness of 300 cd/m2 that will require toning down. It’s got TV tuners too so you can use it as a LCD TV.

The price? $349. Some might say it’s a good price and some others might say it’s a bit too much. As a comparison you can get a 32″ LCD TV for $499. But that 32-incher will be limited to 1366×768 pixels. You can get a 26″ LCD TV for $399. That too will be 1366 x 768. But most of us watch TV on our desks, so if you heart 1920 x 1080 and don’t mind the 22″ size when watching TV the $349 price seems to be right on.
