HP launches 2709m 27″ 16:9 display


HP has been relatively quiet (as far as I’ve noticed) in the displays world for home theaters since they killed off their mix extender+tv combos, but it looks like they’re coming back. Will be interesting to see how this matches up with the competition, but you could do much worse than a 1080p 27" LCD for only $500.



Seen partly as a TV crossover, the 27-inch panel puts out a native 1080p picture and has an HDMI input alongside DVI and VGA to support video from movie readers and other home theater equipment. It’s also claimed to have a vivid picture with anti-glare treatment and a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
