Samsung 2494HS LCD

Samsung has finished its efforts on Friday with news of the 2494HS, its newest desktop LCD. The display relies on an unusual 23.6-inch panel that runs a native 1920x1080 resolution suited to 1080p movies but also manages an exceptionally high 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio comparable to TVs rather than computer displays. Accordingly, Samsung mounts stereo speakers on the LCD's chin and gives it HDMI input along with DVI and VGA.

The screen has a typical 5ms pixel response time and 300cd/m2 brightness and is deemed relatively eco-friendly with 48W power consumption when in use. Samsung is preparing to launch the display first in Japan and should release it there in mid-December for an estimated price equivalent to $420. Samsung regularly brings displays to the US but hasn't yet indicated whether the 2494HS will be exported. [via Impress]
