Westinghouse gets on the 'Full HD' train

Three upcoming monitors from Westinghouse, three bulleted tables for your reading pleasure.

Along with pretty much every other monitor vendor, Westinghouse is moving to a 16:9, "Full HD" format for its monitors. This means that these new displays will be able to display 720p or 1080p HD content without stretching the image.

Other than "Full HD," not much is new about the new lineup.

Here are the specifications on the three new unreleased models.
