Samsung is among the first of several manufacturers working on getting LED backlit LCD displays to consumers. They have announced a new 24-inch display sporting some impressive features. Current LCD displays rely on bulky, power hungry and heat emitting fluorescent bulbs to lighten up the display.
In contrast, LED backlights take up far less space, power and are tremendously more efficient. The final result is a display with more vivid and saturated colors. Samsung's 24-inch display utilizes S-PVA technology to provide unparalleled performance - a 180 degree viewing angle in addition to a contrast ratio in excess of 1000:1.
