Hua Ting Yuan; Emily Chuang, DIGITIMES 0

Following the recent launch of BenQ and Acer’s widescreen LCD monitors, ViewSonic yesterday announced its widescreen LCD monitor lineup for the Taiwan market. The company aims to grab 35% of the local LCD monitor market this quarter, according to ViewSonic.

Designed with an aspect ratio of 16:10, the 23-inch VP2330W, 19-inch VA1912W and 20-inch VA2012W LCD monitors are priced at NT$54,900 (US$1,640), NT$9,900 (US$300) and NT$16,900 (US$500), respectively. The 23-inch model features a native resolution of 1920×1200 and a viewing angle of 176 degree while the 20-inch models have a native resolution of 1680×1050 with a brightness of 300 cd/m2.

Although sales volume for widescreen LCD monitors in the local market totaled only 5,000 units per month during the third quarter, shipments are expected to triple this quarter, according to Alan Chang, vice president of ViewSonic for Asia-Pacific sales and marketing. Chang also predicts that widescreen LCD monitors will likely account for 20% of overall LCD monitors shipments in 2006, up from 2% this year.

In related news, Hewlett-Packard (HP) Taiwan recently also rolled out a 21-inch widescreen LCD monitor in the Taiwan market with a price tag of NT$21,900 (US$650), according to the company.
