LG Electronics has announced the launch of its latest "high spec" monitor TV, the 22-inch widescreen M228WD.

Complete with an in-built digital tuner, LG says consumers can use the new product to watch their favourite television programmes, listen to digital radio stations and play the latest gaming technology via their PC monitor.

With the "entertainment enthusiast" in mind, the M228WD has a Digital Fine Contrast ratio (DFC - not a measurement we're familiar with) of 3000:1 and a response time of 5ms, 300 nits brightness, 170 degree viewing angle and HDMI connectivty for high-def entertainment sources.

Dennis Yeo, Group Product Manager, LG Electronics, says, "Stylish, multifunctional monitors are in high demand from consumers as they make ideal entertainment hubs outside of the living room".

"Our latest monitor, the M228WD, is designed to meet these needs and has been equipped with broad functionality and high technology specifications making the viewing experience one of the best available today."

The M228WD monitor is available for purchase in the UK from late November, no pricing given.
