Lenovo Refreshes ThinkVision T Series Monitors With Several New And Refined Models

Lenovo on Tuesday announced a new generation of ThinkVision T Series monitors that feature the latest green certificates and a more refined design than what you might be used. Part of that entails new thinner profiles and an ergonomic stand that supports lift, tilt, and pivot adjustments, along with the ability to swivel into portrait mode, an oft-overlooked feature even among professional panels.

While on the topic of physical design, the refreshed monitors sport an equal bezel width on all sides, as Lenovo wanted to ensure a seamless flow for those who choose to configure a multi-monitor setup of two or more panels. Of course, it's not all about the looks, features and functionality (and display performance) are equally important.

Five of the new models -- T2424p, T2324p, T2224p, T2454p, and T2224z -- boast In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels for improved color fidelity, generous 178 degrees horizontal and vertical viewing angles, and Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolutions. Each of the four models also feature USB 3.0 ports, and both HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 outputs.

The remaining model -- T2254p -- is the only one to use a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel. As such, it's viewing angles aren't quite as generous (170/160 degrees) and it has a lower resolution (1680x1050; 16:10 aspect ratio). However, the 22-inch monitor has a fast 5ms response time, whereas all the others are rated at 7ms.

In addition to half a dozen new monitors, Lenovo also announced its ThinkCentre Tiny Clamp mounting kit. This cleverly designed $30 accessory attaches to any of the aforementioned monitors' stands without any tools -- it just clamps into place. You can then attach a ThinkCentre Tiny PC to the clamp for a home brewed all-in-one solution. It's available now.

As for the monitors, the 21.5 inch ThinkVision T2224p and T2224z models will be available April 1 for $269 and $289, respectively; the 23.8-inch T2424p will be available March 15 for $219; the 23-inch T2324p and 24-inch T2454p will ship on March 21 for $299 and $449, respectively; and the 22-inch T2254p will be available on March 25 for $279.
