Xenarc 1020TSV question
I think my old 700TSV is on it's way out I think so i've been looking at new monitors for a while and wanted to go larger, 10.2" seems to be about the largest I can fit so I wanted to go with the 1020TSV which I had looked at a while back, however I noticed it's been upgraded for 2010 with a 5-wire touchscreen which is a plus, however there's one thing that worries me but i'm wondering if it's a typo, on the spec it says "Upgraded High-Brightness LED Backlight *New*", but then in the technical spec it says "LCD Brightness: 300 cd/mē" which is quite a downgrade from last years model which was 400cd/mē but since it says the backlight was upgraded I would thing it should actually be better then not worse, so does anyone know if the 300cd/mē is actually a typo and it's really in fact upgraded from the old 400cd/mē, or is it really downgraded in brightness from the old model?
I know 400cd/mē I can live with because that's what my 700TSV is (it's a much older model), but anything lower I can see as acceptable seeing as I do have some issues seeing the display during the day with my current monitor.
Not sure how useful is all this info. Xenarc reports the same brightness and contrast ratio for Touch and non-Touch monitors, so how can we trust these numbers are consistent?
I know that when Dell first released the Convertible Tablet PC XT/XT2 with LEDs, it kept the outdoor screen version with CCFL lamps. Only later it also offered LEDs for the Outdoor screen version, so I think it's costly to achieve the same brightness with LEDs...
