Samsung XL30 LCD

As part of its multiple CeBIT introductions, Samsung today introduced the XL30. Intended as a computer display for professionals and others who value color accuracy above all else, the 30-inch screen manages a 123% gamut thanks to its choice of LED backlighting; this makes it one of the few LCDs that can fully represent an Adobe RGB color profile instead of the smaller sRGB set, according to the Korean firm. The screen further brings in a 14-bit hardware calibration chip that lets the owner fine-tune the output for a specific color range. A dynamic contrast ratio of up to 3,000:1 and a 6ms gray-to-gray pixel response time ensure that the display is ready for games and movies as well as still images.

The XL30 uses a single dual-link DVI input and has a four-port USB hub for attaching peripherals. It should be available worldwide in August, but hasn't received formal pricing.

    Where's the 305T?

    You can't even buy their "earlier" 305T 30" display introduced last October. Why is Samsung announcing another?
