ViewSonic’s VT2430 LCD
December 17, 2008 by Arlen Schweiger

From the “all TVs will soon be 1080p” department—ViewSonic has introduced a 24-inch LCD, ideal for secondary rooms, that gives you 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution.

The VT2430 is a widescreen 16:9 model that’ll look great in your kitchen, bedroom, home office and anywhere else where you might want to catch a high-def game while your kids are watching Noggin on the 50-incher in the family room.

Sure, we hear a lot how you can’t really tell the difference between 720p and 1080p at sizes under 50 inches (unless you’re sitting 2 feet from the TV), but ViewSonic’s giving everyone a 24-incher with 1080p anyway.

Heck, we won’t send it back—pop in a disc in your now-secondary upscaling DVD player and it’ll be golden on the VT2430. You’ve replaced that upscaling player with Blu-ray in your main setup by now, right?

Other features of the VT2430 include:

  • Dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1
  • ATSC/NTSC/QAM integrated tuner
  • 250-nit brightness
  • HDMI 1.3, among other connectivity options
  • OptiSync technology

It also looks pretty snazzy and can make a nice wall decoration by adding ViewSonic’s $149 WMK-013 wall mount. The VT2430 itself carries an MSRP of $399.
