Samsung SyncMaster LCDs
Samsung on Tuesday in Korea announced the upcoming release of two SyncMaster 80 Series LCD monitors, with the 20-inch F2080 and 23-inch F2380. Each sports what Samsung claims is the world's highest dynamic contrast ratio for a conventionally-lit computer display, at 150,000:1. Otherwise, they share the same 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles and 100 percent coverage of the sRGB color space, rendering them ideal for certain image editing work.
Both are built with the environment in mind, with materials that are low in carbon dioxide content. The F2080 and F2380 feature a stand that is adjustable in the range of 5.1 inches. Equivalent prices in Korea are set at $293 and $354, respectively, and Korean release dates have not been announced. A North American release is probable but hasn't been mentioned today.
