CES is giving us a lot of news and the next interesting one is the announcement of the 23-inch Full HD 3D Vision compatible Alienware OptX AW2310 monitor. The monitor is equipped with a 120Hz panel with 3 ms response time and high brightness (400 cd/m2 compared to the normally 300 cd/m2 on other 3D displays) and contrast levels (up to 80000:1, but dynamic), although it is not very clear what panel is being used, and this might be one of the first monitors using the new 23″ LG 120Hz panels announced a month ago. Alienware OptX AW2310 has a nice-looking design and has an option to adjust the swivel, tilt and height to suit your personal preferences and all that you can get for $499, although the display is currently listed only on some local Alienware websites (New Zealand and Japan for instance), but will probably soon appear on others… Alienware claims that this display also has a low input lag, but does not state a number of milliseconds. They also mention something interesting that the input lag is low “In DVI mode only” which is probably related to the fact that you need to use the DVI for 3D mode and/or when playing with 120Hz refresh rate…. still this needs a little further clarification. Specifications of the Alienware OptX AW2310: Panel Size: 23″ Widescreen, 16:9 Panel Type: TN – Twisted Nematic Native Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) Contrast Ratio: 80000:1 (dynamic) Brightness: 400 cd/m2 (typical) Response Time: 3ms (typical) (grey-to-grey) Viewing Angle : 170°/ 160° Color Support : 16.7 million colors Color Gamut: 83.4% Refresh Rate: 120Hz (3D Capable) Video Connectivity: DVI x 1, HDMI x 1 Audio Connectivity: Yes; Audio In and Out (2.0) USB Ports : Yes: 4 USB 2.0 User Input / Controls: Touch Capacitive OSD Buttons Stand: Tilt, Swivel and Height Adjustable Interesting developments on the 120Hz area. This is nice. This looks good, 2nd to the Acer imo!
