Alienware's OptX AW2310 23-Inch 3D Widescreen Monitor Sounds Brilliant

This sweet-sounding Alienware OptX AW2310 23-inch Full HD monitor has been announced at CES—with NVIDIA 3D Vision tech. It's ripe for 3D gaming, or for hooking up with some 3D Blu-rays.

It's 1080p of course, has a contrast ratio of 80,000:1 and 400 cd/m2 brightness. Connectivity is done via DVI-D and HDMI, with audio in and out and four USB 2.0 ports. The widescreen display is 16:9, and it's a Twisted Nematic panel—which will please some, irritate others. The refresh rate is 120Hz, so groovy for 3D content, and the touch capacitive buttons are a nice extra. On sale for $499. [Alienware]
