NEC LaVie MX: Reflective LCD & Li-Polymer Bat.

NEC LaVie MX: Reflective LCD & Li-Polymer Bat. - PCSTATS
Abstract: While the integration of the Crusoe processor would bring our attention to this notebook regardless, it is actually the screen that makes this notebook stand out among Crusoe-powered portables.

Reflective LCD screen on the LaVie MX

Being unsure of what particular manufacturer's reflective TFT LCD screen the LaVie MX uses it's hard to nail down the contrast rating, let alone estimate it. As an example however, LG | Philips is releasing a 800x600 (246 x 184mm) Transflective screen 2Q 2001 with contrast ratio of 5:1 (reflective), and 30:1 (Transmissive). Now this isn't a purely reflective adaptation, but in situations where the back light is off, a 5:1 contrast rating is obviously going to be visible (as reference). On the other end of the spectrum, a typical backlit Transmissive screen can have a contrast rating on the order of 100 or 200:1. That's a big difference no matter how you cut it.

All is not lost however. NEC themselves have just announced a 96mm reflective-type amorphous silicon thin film transistor (TFT) color liquid crystal display module with a contrast ratio of 40:1. Viewability of the PDA-destined display appears better then that of the display on the LaVie MX, but then again there don't appear to be any wires leading away from the screen in the image tagging along with the press release ;-)
