HP Reveals 'Micro Thin' LED backlit 23-inch Monitor

Monday HP unveiled a micro-thin LED backlit LCD display for the consumer sector called the x2301. So far HP hasn't released specific details, but the display is expected to have a 23-inch screen and measure just 0.4-inches thick (or thin). The news follows the release of a similar 21.5-inch LED backlit LCD monitor (HP Elite L2201x) for the business sector, also measuring 0.4-inch thick.

According to ZDNet, the HP x2301 will sport a brushed-aluminum bezel and a translucent aquamarine base that will play host to all the necessary connectors including HDMI, VGA and DVI-D, the adjustment buttons and the power. It will also be plug-and-play, requiring absolutely no need for manual installation.

On the specs side, the display will feature full HD (1920 x 1080), 72-percent of the color gamut, a 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 3-ms GtG response time, and glare-reducing BrightView technology. For those concerned about burning up the earth before its expected expiration date, the x2301 will also be mercury- and arsenic-free with Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Silver certifications.

The HP x2301 will reportedly be a limited edition panel, but there's no indication of how long the device will remain in production. Expect to see the HP x2301 panel to go on sale June 10 with a starting price of $279.99. We're betting we'll see this monitor make an appearance by the end of the month at Computex 2011.

    That base is ugly. Totally ruins the whole idea.

    meh, you can go only so thin with these things before you render them unusable to do being unable to adjust the position/tilt of these things without breaking them.........

    Yeah the base defeats the whole purpose....what they COULD do is make the base attach to the monitor with a single cable or wirelessly. That way you could mount it to a wall then plug your stuff in 4 feet away in the cabinet.

    Its the base that makes this idea possible. There are components in that base, components that are usually on the back of the monitor, making it fatter.

    QQ More? The monitor is beautiful, and full LED back a reasonable price... I want one!!!
  • Nice, I like a really thin monitor since my desk is almost in the middle of my room.

    Now, if only more companies would produce displays with thin bezels, either in addition to, or instead of putting all of their efforts into depth...
