Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, the number one monitor brand in the world, announced today the addition of a super-thin LED monitor to its “Touch of Color” (ToC) family – the P2370L. This new high-end, model has a Light Emitting Diode Back Light Unit (LED BLU), instead of the cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) found in standard LCD displays, and reproduces more vibrant color and higher contrast ratios than other monitors. With its sophistication-meets-high technology form factor, the P2370L display will ship in late first quarter with an MSRP of $399.

2M : 1 = 2 million:1 ?! of so then this is really crazy, anyway I thought the human eye can't tell the difference between 3000:1 and 6000:1 for example so whats the point ???

By the way they didn't mention how what size of it ?

Looks to me it gonna be 26inch or something close.

Super thin screens on a big foot dont make it any more attractive IMO. Specs do. Hi refresh, high contrast (real, not overdrive) and full colour gamut. That DOES make it more attractive. (Incl. different input formats, DVI. HDMI and old yellow cable composite for legacy devices like iPod).

Hope those LEDs are better than the ones hanging on my wall. Crazy bright when new and in couple months they got quite dim. 2M:1 contrast ration when you buy it and 20.000:1 in 6 months of use.

Well probably not, LEDs are getting better and better all the time. I'm sure they used muuuuuch better quality ones that are on Christmas lights :p

That contrast ratio number is good for marketing, but does it produce black if you reduce the brightness to a level that doesn't make your eyes pop?

Most likely 23", going by the name.

Which is the minimum resolution for 1080p, and should serve fine dot pitch.

I Am So Very Happy!!!

WOW!! this is AMAZING news...

I am so very happy that Samsung has been so hard at work combating the ridiculous THICKNESS of my current screen (almost 4.3cm)..

It REALLY is about time everybody stopped working on storage, processors, ram bandwidth, and graphic performance and every other silly waste of time that used to preoccupy so much of our global research resource in years gone buy, and finally focused on the critically vital THICKNESS of our monitors...

This massive attention currently being devoted to THICKNESS of monitors is sure to help revolutionize global problems like sickness, famine, & unplayable framerates... Just think of how much more work all of those scientific researchers will be able to do with that extra 1.Xcm of space they will gain when they replace their current LCD's & TFT's...

It really is a miracle that big corps are finally focusing on such important issues...

I dont like it. Hang me for saying it, but I really dont like it. My favourite monitor is the dell ultrasharp (original revision) or the acer crystalbrites - the thinner the frame around the screen, the better.

Don't forget the most important, RGB LED. It's a shame that even Samsung cannot afford to mass product RGB LED, because the color saturation % is able to reach almost 120% or more.

White LED averages at 91-94, with some nearing 100, but that's as high as they'll go.

When are 120 Hz LCD monitors going to come out? The TV's are starting to have them is there some limitation as to why this can't be on a monitor?

They keep reinventing the circle as far as I'm concerned until this is accomplished.

Ha Bazooka Joe! It really is silly, but that is what they do. I saw those new TV
monitors at CES because I worked that show, and my reaction was: great, more
ways that TV can take over our lives. What about some better content?

Fortunately other companies are improving the computer components all the time.
And I have a Samsung HD in my computer.

Because higher end monitors already have a response time fast enough that you don't need it. 120hz is purely a marketing gimmick for the LCD TV market anyway. All it pretty much does is trick your eye into thinking its a higher frame rate to smooth out the edges and cut down on motion blur. IMHO, it makes whatever youre watching look fake. My 50" Panasonic 1080p plasma doesn't have a super high contrast ratio (only 3000:1) and is "only" 60hz, but has a 1ms response time! That makes all the difference in getting motion blur or not. Consumer LCDs still haven't gotten that low yet, at least a price level anyone can afford

What entilza (and also I) wishes for is a screen that accepts and displays 120Hz input. Not image interpolation that increases display lag.

Some of you guys are very cynical. These led monitors are fantastic and a big improvement over current tech. I have just spent a few weeks researching and testing LCD Tv's and the picture quality is very poor unless you spend a couple of grand.

LCD's lack the contrast ratio...and it is very noticable to me especially a movie with night scenes. SO bring em on i say, and they are reasonably priced too.

Hi, It's not a gimmick. It's not the 1 ms response time thats the problem it's the actual redrawing of the screen. I am lucky that D3D overrider (from rivatuner) solved my screen tearing issues in all games. Screen Tearing is a major issue for me, I am happy it has been solved for the most part in games by using Triple buffering.

I can go on into a huge VSYNC display explanation but I think 120hz refresh will solve most of the issues. I don't want screen tear anymore in windows either.

While in windows anyone can see tearing if you have an LCD, All you have to do is drag a window around and watch left window edge. You will see an effect such as:

I am actually curious as to how a PC would look like on a TV with 120hz refresh and if it actually works...
