Korean electronics giant LG Electronics last week unveiled a new addition to its monitor line up.
The Flatron 795FT Plus is a 17in device that has a completely flat screen, thereby offering zero image distortion and dramatically reduced light reflection that in turn reduces eye strain.
The monitor can display its maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 at a refresh rate of 75Hz. An added advantage of the flat screen is that the actual viewable area can be larger than monitors based on traditional screens - the 795TF has a visible diagonal of 16.02in.
LG's device does not have the distinctive mask guard of Sony's Trinitron tube wires, which cause a couple of faint lines to appear across the display.
LG claims that because its screen uses phosphor stripes, as opposed to dots, with a 0.24mm pitch, the unit is able to display colours more clearly.
The 795FT complies with the TCO 99 emissions standard. At the moment this monitor is not being manufactured at the company's production plant in Newport, Gwent, but a company spokesman said: "We will probably produce these monitors in Wales eventually, because we see this technology as our future."
The Flatron 795FT Plus is available immediately, priced at #330.
