Widescreen monitors are getting cheaper everyday. This is the trend of the last few years, and if it depends on technology and production costs, the prices are gonna get even better during 2006.
A good example of this trend is the new Tatung 42" Widescreen Plasma HDTV Monitor. This TV set has all the goodies of the more well known (and also more expensive) brands have to offer: 16 : 9 widescreen aspect ratio with 1024 x 768 pixels of resolution. Great brightness of 1000 cd/m2 (which is among the best of its class), and a viewing angle of 160 degrees both in the horizontal and vertical directions. This viewing degree provides an exceptional viewing experience, again not different from what is provided by a SONY, Panasonic, or other famous brands of plasma TV.
For all the specs of this TV set, it seems to be clearly on par with all the latest technology, and frankly even surpassing some of the more established brands. So, when I see such TV sets selling for as low as $2000 in retail stores, I see that plasma technology is getting far beyond the expectations of most people in this area.
Certainly 2006 will be a great year for digital TV, and it is about time to use the opportunity to get some of these nice TV sets and see TV with quality that is higher than ever.
