Toshiba LCD goes nuts for resolution

Squeezing this many pixels in a relatively small 22-inch display seems to be the doings of a mad optometrist.

We're not quite sure how to categorize Toshiba's latest LCD monitor, which has an incredible resolution of 3,840 x 2,400 pixels. More is usually merrier when it comes to resolution but, in this case, squeezing this many pixels in a relatively small 22-inch display seems to be the doings of a mad optometrist who believes myopia is good. The densely packed dots mean that text will be too small to read comfortably.

Though we do congratulate the Japanese maker for making this technological advance, the sad fact is this 2,079,000 yen ($18,162) LCD makes no sense, as other specifications such as its 235cd/m2 brightness and 300:1 contrast ratio are under par for its price. No news on when, or even if, this panel will make it outside Japan, but at this cost we doubt many will be holding their breath.
