Formac has announced its latest monitor, the 17.4-inch flat-panel Gallery 1740 OX for the UK market.

The product’s release has been timed to coincide with this week’s MacExpo 2002, which begins Thursday 21 at Islington’s Business Design Centre, London.

The Gallery 1740 OX is encased in a snow white body and incorporates a technology called Multi-Domain Vertical Alignnment (MVA). It offers a 400:1 contrast ratio, brightness is 220 cadmium per square metre and it has a 10-25ms pixel-response time.

The monitor is both Mac and PC compatible, and ships with either an ADC or DVI interface. It is available now and costs £499 (excluding VAT). It ships with a one year on-site warranty.
