Packard Bell Launches Maestro LED 23" Asymmetrical Display
Packard Bell may not be the first name that comes to mind when looking for a display, but that hasn't stopped the Taiwan-based manufacturer from launching an interestingly designed high definition monitor. The new 23" display, named the Maestro LED 230, is crafted out of clear plastic and aluminium but most notably features an eye catching asymmetrical stand. Design aside, the Maestro is equipped with a LED-backlit 1920x1080 pixel panel, a 5ms response time and a quoted contrast ratio of 12,000,000:1, although I'd take the latter with a pinch of salt. Packard Bell has taken an environment-friendly approach with this monitor, choosing to exclude mercury and halogen gases in the manufacturing process of the Maestro. The Packard Bell Maestro LED 230 display should be available in May for around US$272 (€199).
