Back when I was a kid getting a better picture on the TV Friday nights for watching Dukes of Hazard and The Incredible Hulk meant making my brother stand on one leg with tin foil in one hand and rabbit ears in the other. Today we have HD images and I have become so accustomed to the great picture quality I can hardly stand to watch SD programs.
The problem is that for people with smaller rooms and not enough space for a big 1080p TV there were few options other than a SD TV. Viewsonic has announced a new 22-inch screen TV that has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 offering full HD 1080p image quality. The set has integrated ATSC/NTSC/QAM digital tuners, so it’s ready for the summer transition to all digital broadcasts.
The set offers an 8000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for picture quality and offers a full array of connectivity options. Connectivity options include HDMI, composite, component, PC, and S-Video. I’d like to see more than one HDMI input on the set, but on a screen this small one is all you get. The VT2230 is available now for $349.
