Gateway Unveils 22- and 24-inch HD LCDs

Gateway Unveils 22- and 24-inch HD LCDs

Computer maker Gateway has introduced two new widescreen, high-definition LCD displays which are designed to appeal to users looking to combine their computing and entertainment needs in a single panel…and who are looking out for their budgets.

“The new Gateway 24-inch and 22-inch HD Widescreen Displays are ideal for customers who want to enjoy the latest high-resolution PC applications and high-definition video at home and work,” said John Schindler, Gateway’s director of consumer product marketing, in a release. “The displays provide an all-around amazing viewing experience thanks to advanced technology and features that let customers enjoy newly-available high-definition and widescreen content.”

The 24-inch model FPD2485W and 22-inch FPD2285W both utilize DCDi by Faroudja video processing technology to smooth video playback and reduce artifacts, feature HDCP copy protection to support protected content from Blu-ray, HD DVD, satellite, Windows Vista, and other systems. For inputs, the displays feature DVI, S-Video, and VGA inputs; the 24-inch model touts two component video inputs while the 22-inch model has a single component input. The displays also offer a four-port USB 2.0 hub for connecting peripherals. What’s missing? HDMI input—which reduces the utility of the displays from the modern home-entertainment perspective. The displays also feature touch-sensitive backlit buttons for controlling brightness, contrast, and other features via a new “EzTouch” bezel.

The 24-inch FPD2485W sports a resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 450 cd/m2 brightness, 178° viewing angle, and a 6 ms response time. The 22-inch FPD2485W offers a 1,680 by 1,050 resolution (not quite enough to carry 1080p content), 300 cd/m2 brightness, and a 700:1 contrast ratio.

But here’s the best part: the 24-inch FPD2485W is priced at $679.99 (with an optional six-speaker sound system being an additional $69.99), and the 22-inch FPD2285W is offered at $399.99 (with a height-adjustable stand being $69.99). Gateway says both models are available now.
