Hewlett-Packard launched a new range of monitors last week with universal serial bus (USB) support through to the base of the screen.
The new HP M700 and M500 will allow USB devices such as a keyboard, mouse, or scanner to be connected to the PC through the monitor base via an optional USB hub device mounted in the tilt and swivel base of the monitor.
The M700 has a 16in viewable screen and delivers 0.26mm dot pitch. Available now at #491, the M700 uses Short Neck CRT technology, a reduced tube size that means the model takes up the space of a normal 15in monitor. The M700 has a refresh rate of 85Hz.
Due to ship in November with pricing yet to be announced, the M500 will have a 13.8in viewable screen with a 0.28mm dot pitch.
Also new to the HP monitor range is the HP 50, which will offer a 13.7in viewable screen at 0.28mm dot pitch. The HP 50 is available now priced at #216. All new HP monitors can be remotely located and identified for asset management through DMI-compliant management software such as HP TopTools.
NEC also launched a new monitor last week - the 19in Multi-Sync E900+.
Priced at #479 and available at the end of this month, the MultiSync E900+ offers a dot pitch of 0.26mm. It incorporates microfilter technology, improving brightness, contrast and colour purity, according to NEC.
Resolution can reach 1600 x 1200 at a refresh rate of 75Hz. NEC is aiming the model at users of highly graphical, detailed multimedia images or financial spreadsheets.
