NEC Display Solutions has announced three new AccuSync LCD displays for desktop use, all of which offer widescreen aspect ratio and no-touch auto-adjustment for folks for whom adjusting color balance, brightness, and contrast once in a blue moon is just too much work.

"The proliferation of applications and Web-based content has really created the need for more screen real estate at home and in the work place," said Andy Anderson, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions, in a statement. "While added horizontal screen space on these new AccuSync displays allows for easier multi-tasking, the feature set and industry-recognized quality deliver the performance and reliability consumers expect from the NEC brand."

The new AccuSync Wide Screen displays will come in 19, 20-, and 22-inch sizes; the 19-inch ASLCD193WXM model sports a 1,440 by 900 resolution while the 20-inch ASLCD203WXM and 22-inch ASLCD223WXM pack 1,680 by 1,050 displays into their frames. The systems sport integrated multimedia speakers, a headphone jack, VESA-complaint wall- and arm-mounting, NEC’s Ambix technology for digital and analog inputs, and NEC’s AccuColor system with five presets which enable users to adjust onscreen color and calibrate the monitors for a variety of different situations. However, if the thought of adjusting a monitor is just too much to bear, the displays also feature No Touch Auto Adjust technology which—you guessed it—automatically calibrates the monitor when connecting it to a new system.

The displays each feature 1,000:1 contrast ratios, 5 ms response times, and are EnergyStar 4 complaint. The 19-inch model is available now with an estimated street price of $229.99, while the 20- and 22-inch models should be available in May for $289.99 and $359.99, respectively.
