LG bows low-power, 10,000:1 contrast LCD

LG W2252TE

In a bid to raise its eco-friendly profile, LG today added the W2252TE to its Flatron LCD lineup. While relatively large at 22 inches, the screen consumes just 22W of average power, cutting well below the 40W of other displays the same size. The electronics giant also promises performance well above many of those same competitors with a TV-like 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and an unusual scaling mode for 4:3 images that claims to fill the horizontal space of the panel without resorting to distorting the image.

The screen also nets a 250cd/m2 brightness level and has the same 170-degree horizontal viewing angle as most other 22-inch LCDs. Pricing for the W2252TE is unavailable, though it launches first in the UK as of August and is expected to spread to other regions in the future. [via The Register]

    huh?

    "an unusual scaling mode for 4:3 images that claims to fill the horizontal space of the panel without resorting to distorting the image."

    This is not what LG claims. What it apparently does (looking at the LG website) is show a 4:3 image at 4:3 (with blank space on each side). So yes, it doesn't distort the image, but it does not fill up the width of the wide screen (which would be impossible without distortion). Whoever wrote this story is mistaken (to put it kindly).

    Besides...

    someone should be reprimanded for writing an article on a computer monitor WITHOUT mentioning it's pixel dimensions. And while you're at it, a black mark to the editor who let it go...
