LG claims high-contrast computer LCD crown

LG L1982U Computer LCD

LG on Thursday added to its Flatron computer LCDs with the L1982U. The 19-inch screen boasts the highest ever contrast ratio found in a computer display, by the company's estimates: by adding the first dedicated image-enhancing chip, known as the f-ENGINE, the screen roughly triples the average contrast ratio to 3,000:1. The display also builds in an ambient light sensor that auto-dims the picture in darker conditions.

Portability and speed are just as important, LG says. Dual hinges in the stand allow the panel to fold down almost completely flat for carrying, while an average 2ms pixel response time is said to virtually eliminate ghosting. LG's iconic L1900J "Jar" display and the ultra-slim L1970HR will also receive the contrast boost, the Korean firm said. The L1982U is making its way to international stores today, though North American release details are unavailable. [via PC Launches]
