Technology & You: BULLETIN BOARD: FLAT PANELS

NICE IMAGE, BIG PRICE

Big flat-panel displays, long a feature of science-fiction movies, are slowly coming closer to reality. The new LCD1280 from NEC Technologies (800 632-4636) is a 13-in. diagonal active-matrix screen--the biggest of its type available commercially. The resolution is workstation-quality, with brilliant colors and flicker-free display. But don't expect big flat-screens to replace CRTs any time soon. Stiff manufacturing costs dictate an $11,755 price. NEC hopes to sell the LCD1280 for medical imaging and aerospace use--and perhaps as executive status symbols.BY STEPHEN H. WILDSTROM
