Samsung Swan 22-inch LCD
Samsung finished its week by launching its Swan line of computer displays. Recalling the company's Bordeaux TVs, the 20-inch (CX2032) and 22-inch (CX2232) screens earn the nickname through their subtler tilt mechanisms. Each screen's display neck uses elastomers to hold the screen in place; this results in a subtler movement than the usual mechanical elements, Samsung says. Both are further capable of a 1680x1050 resolution and include better anti-glare treatments to work even in front of direct light.
Full specifications have not been published, but the choice of displays points to a pixel response time of 5ms or less as well as a minimum of DVI input. Either will be available in a glossy black or white trim and ships now in Korea at prices of $399 for the 20-inch model and $474 for the 22-inch version. American launches of both displays are highly probable and should see prices close to those unveiled today.
