From press release today . . . It seems this thin/inexpensive display might be good for setting up, occasional one-person viewing, etc.

Otherwise not very remarkable model. Boy these TFT's have come down in price, quickly. Street prices will be below $300 (15") and $450 (17") very soon, now.



Hitachi Introduces Super-Slim Bezel, 15-Inch Flat Panel LCD

New CML153 LCD Monitor is Among the Lightest and Thinnest in the Industry

WESTWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2001--Hitachi America, Ltd., a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT - news), has introduced its new 15-inch flat panel LCD monitor. The new monitor - Hitachi's CML153 flat panel display - weighs only 8 lbs and has a 23.7 mm left and right bezel width, making it one of the lightest and thinnest LCD monitors available. The CML153 features TFT (Thin Film Transistor) Technology, delivering high quality, distortion free images, at a value price. MSRP is $399.

``We are very pleased to be able to offer an outstanding flat-panel monitor at such an attractive price point.

The CML153 provides a full 15`` viewing area (304 x 228 mm), with minimal glare and almost no emissions. It features bezel integrated speakers as well as a headphone jack and volume control on the bezel. The panel meets the VESA FPMPMI (Flat Panel Monitor Physical Mounting Interface) standard, which enables wall-mounting with third party mounting arms. It also features Kensington Security Port.

The PC & Mac compatible CML153 also features an auto-adjust function to quickly and accurately produce beautiful, distortion-free images.

Pixel pitch is .297 mm, with 200 nit typical brightness and a 300:1 contrast ratio. Prime and maximum resolution is 1024 x 768 at 60 or 75 Hz.
