Samsung Launches Premium LED Monitor, Combining Sleek Design and Energy Efficiency

Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, the number one worldwide brand of LCD display products, today announced the launch of its latest premium LED monitor, the 23 inch Samsung Syncmaster PX2370. The PX2370 will be available in April from Samsung resellers at a price of $369, giving customers outstanding performance combined with sleek, attractive design and energy-efficient technology.

“With its slim 18mm depth and eco-sensitive design, the PX2370 leads the way with the smallest footprint possible, both on the desktop and the environment,” said Young Bae, director Display Marketing, Samsung Information Technology Division. “Consumers no longer have to choose between a high-performance, feature-laden product and green technology.”

Energy Saving Design
The PX2370 is designed with a simple, sophisticated black and transparent shell. It also incorporates a range of innovations to make it one of the most eco-sensitive LED monitors on the market, while providing an unrivaled user experience with excellent image quality. The monitor contains a number of features to maximize energy efficiency, including Samsung’s Smart Sensor Technology, with both proximity and Ambient Light Sensors (ALS), which automatically turn it on and off when not in use. As a result of these innovations, the PX2370 has been awarded with Energy Star and EPEAT Gold Certification.

Vivid, Dynamic Images
The display uses Samsung’s Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio (DCR) technology and 16:9 FHD resolution to display more vivid and dynamic images. This makes it ideal for use across the range of applications, especially wide-format multimedia images, such as video and CAD. With a slender 18mm depth and premium styling, the PX2370 ensures that both the on-screen image and overall design are pleasing on the eye.

Minimizing Environmental Impact
In addition to its energy-efficient technology, the monitor also contains other major advances to minimize environmental impact of its components. The PX2370 uses Samsung’s Premium Touch of Color (ToC) Design and is crafted from black and transparent materials that don’t require painting, ensuring it contains no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), making recycling more simple and safe. The monitor also contains numerous components created from recyclable materials, and is shipped using less packaging materials, further reducing its environmental impact.

The PX2370 as well as additional monitors in the Samsung product line will be on display at Central Hall Booth #11026 during the International Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 7 – 10, 2010 and available through Samsung resellers in April 2010.

It is, but LED backlighting is the best solution until then. So far LG has the biggest OLED display at only 15". It will be a while until manufacturing costs come down and the technology can be expanded so until then, we will make due with LED backlights behind our LCD.

Seriously is that something I would buy a hardware for ?

When it comes to hardware, I want to know about the performance....!@#$ the environment.

How many people here consider or at least think about the environment when they buy their hardware ?

To continue the trend of me writing this again and again after every single amazing-new-awesome computer screen announcement...

Samsung, where's my DisplayPort and 120Hz refresh rate on a 24" or bigger panel?

well, I for one consider the environment and how much crap im going to be dumping to the environment. everyone looks for hardware that is strong in performance and has minimal effect on the environment..im sure you dont want to live in a world that has a constant temperature of 60+ degrees where there are floods every hour...and one more thing, Minimal Environmental Impact also has a benefit of decreasing your electricity bill

Sony has a 24.5" OLED display at CES...

Man that stand looks so lame. I have a similar one at work with that clear plastic arm and it feels like it's going to break off.

It seems to be getting sidestepped all the time. There's some sort of backroom shennanigans keeping it from happening.

Heard alot of complaint about color accuracy and low lighting problem (think of your average laptop screen but bigger). But overall I think "This" one looked way better and more affordable too.

If the res isnt as high as my current 23" they can take their environmental crap and shove it.

Actually, the nice thing about energy efficient monitors is that they don't throw off nearly as much heat. Literally, you can feel the back of the monitor and it's cool. I cut the power usage from 140 watts to less than 70.

My monitor is an EPA gold monitor, which has an eco mode, but I keep my brightness below what the eco mode does.


Thus the reported grand total savings is 10.5 Kg of carbon this year. lol

Blue LEDs: crappy color.
Side mounted LEDs("With its slim 18mm depth"): crappy backlight uniformity.
TN panel(2ms GTG): crappy view angle.

Interesting.

How about the screen? Is it glossy or not?

Well, I don't care too much for the environment but what was winter temperatures of 2-5C in Ireland is now -10C so I've decided to build an eco friendly Atom based media PC to keep bills down.

As for LED monitors, their sleek look is more than enough for me to buy one, lower power consumption is a bonus for me.

Exactly electricity isn't free.

I also not a big fan of 16x9 but that seems to be the direction that the manufacturers are pushing towards.

Yeah, a lot of people say that the money you spend on the product defeats the purpose of savings, i.e if the monitor saves €150 in electricity bills it doesn't help that you had to pay €150 to get it in the first place, so you're kinda back to square 1, but it helps in the long run. I'm looking at a 24" Acer LED, it's a pricey €250 compared to the 23" LCD for €150 but it uses less power so I will save that €100 in electricity bills.

Sure I'll be back in square 1 if I buy it, but I'll most likely keep it for 5 years if not more, so there's the savings. Even if you don't save money it helps the environment.
