another 24-inch, 1920 x 1200 LCD monitor with 1000:1 contrast ratio. Not that that's a bad thing. This time, it's Eizo doing the honors with this, their ¥149,800 (about $1,232) FlexScan HD2451W. That "HD" in the name gives a hint to the panel's 2x HDMI inputs for 1080p sourced content. It also packs more traditional HDCP-enabled DVI and D-Sub15 inputs for your computers as well as S-Video and composite inputs for your other AV equipment. Rounding things out are a 450cd/m2 brightness, 16ms response, DVI and D-sub 15 inputs, a 2x USB hub, and the ability to pivot into portrait mode. The only thing that seems to be missing is LED backlighting. Eizo is also offering a business-minded FlexScan S2431W without all the pesky video inputs for ¥114,800 (about $944) or a 20.1-inch, 1680 x 1050 FlexScan S2031W for ¥59,800 (about $492) if your boss is a bit tight with the budget. All should hit Japan starting June 7. Check the backside ports on the HD2451W after the break.
