Samsung readies five 16:9 computer LCDs

Samsung 2x33SW Displays

In an uncharacteristic move, Samsung today used Japan as the venue for five new desktop LCDs with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The 21.5-inch 2233SW and 23-inch 2333SW both output full, 1920x1080 HD despite their relatively small sizes and are braced by the 20-inch 2033SW's 1600x900 to play 720p or sharper movies as well as provide more screen space. The panels are also brighter than some rivals with a dynamic contrast boost that brings them to a 15,000:1 ratio, or 1,000:1 when static.

All of the new high-end displays' panels are estimated to have a 5ms average pixel response time and generate 300cd/m2 of brightness. They all also accept both DVI input with HDCP encryption as well as VGA for older sources.

Two VGA-only displays are also available in the same ratio: the 18.5-inch 933SN and 15.6-inch 633NW both output at 1360x768 over the analog link. Performance on the 933SN is similar to its larger cousins, but the smaller 15.6-inch LCD trades off a slight amount of dynamic contrast (12,000:1), brightness (250cd/m2) and pixel speed (8ms).

All of the screens are due in Japan by late November at estimated prices ranging from $188 for the 633NW to $365 for the 2333SW. American release information hasn't been provided, though Samsung regularly supplies most of its display lineup in the US. [via Impress]
