T560 (Black) review

 

Most LCDs look cool just by virtue of their svelte lines and bright screens, but the sleek, black IBM T560 was clearly designed with elegance in mind. Although it's pricey for a 15-inch LCD and has somewhat narrow viewing angles, it's solidly built,...

Elegant design; great image quality; sturdy base with wide range of motion; good documentation and support resources.

Expensive for a 15-inch LCD; narrow viewing angles.

The IBM T560 may be expensive, but its good design and sharp imaging are worth it. This is a solid choice for offices or small businesses that are willing to pay extra for better overall quality.

IBM T560

 

Not since the Transformers toy craze has there been a contortionist piece of hardware equal to the new IBM T560, a flat-panel LCD ($539 direct). The display does just about everything-and all at a reasonable price.

IBM T560 Black Hybrid Flat Panel Display

 

The IBM T560 is a fairly well designed display that offers the standard options that are necessary for enjoying an LCD (but not excessive enjoyment).
