LG’s new monitor, the L227WT, released today in the UK, brings us one step closer to that movie-related dream. The South Korean electronic suprimo’s 22in PC window packs a 5000:1 contrast ratio, a 1680x1050 resolution and a 170 degree viewing angle. In short, that’s some very fine viewing, right there.

The L227WT also boasts a 2m/s response time, which is very useful for smoothing out the blurring and noise the average monitor spits out regularly. So, on paper, it seems ideal for high-octane gaming. Though we’ll confirm this when we get our hands on one.

It’s operated by a touch-sensitive control button, it says here. So, it’s a safe bet the L227WT will eat up power while it’s doing nothing.

The L227WT also boasts something called ‘ez-zooming’, which, in America, is obviously ‘easy zooming’. It allows you to tweak the resolution should you want to. Unfortunately, LG didn’t do enough homework as it actually reads, simply, Ezz-zooming – what ever that is.
