ViewSonic has introduced the first 15-inch LCD VA520 with a three-year, zero-dead-pixel warranty. The VA520 is also engineered for high performance with a native resolution of 1024x768, 250 nits of brightness, and a 400:1 contrast ratio. It is available with a metallic-on-black frame and includes OnView controls and compliance with TCO '99 emissions standards. The VA520 is currently available with an estimated retail price of $899 exclusively through Synnex. If resellers buy before the end of December, they will receive a free matching keyboard. "Consumers today are demanding more value, high performance, and high style in their technology products," said Nelson Chou, product manager, Synnex Australia. "ViewSonic's new LCD line-up will satisfy these requirements plus the new VA520 will provide an additional value-add to consumers with its three-year, zero-dead-pixel warranty."
