Samsung releases display with 1ms response

Samsung has a couple of new LCD displays out this month.

The first is the SyncMaster P2770FH which according to Samsung has a response time of just one millisecond – getting rid of motion blur and ghosting in the process. That means clearer performance for faster refresh rates. It’s 27 inches and operates at a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution.

It has a viewing angle of 170 degrees and 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Inputs are HDMI, standard VGA and DVI-I. It’ll be available this month for $399.99. 

It has also put out the 31 series LED backlit monitors. Samsung claims that they’re eco friendly and stylish. The latter is subjective. The main idea though is that the 31 series will find displays using 40 percent less energy, on average, on the same-sized CCFL backlit monitors – and they won’t contain any mercury or halogens.

They’ve apparently already been rated the Energy Star 5.0 rating. The 31 Series have a slim 19mm design, HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 2ms response time, contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and two HDMI inputs. The cheapest model has VGA and DVI-D but no HDMI.

The 31 series should be available this month too. The BX2031 – with no HDMI – will sell for $169, the BX2231 will go for $199, the BX2331 for $239 and the top model, the BX2431 will sell for $279.
