SID 2010 - With lesser power consumption being a strong point of focus in the computing industry Samsung has reached a very impressive milestone in developing an 18.5-inch sized display that uses just 6.3w of measily power to operate properly.

Given such low power requirements, Samsung has designed it so it can be powered entirely from USB ports. That's right; this 18.5-inch TN-film panel display can draw all the power it needs from just a couple USB 2.0 ports, with one of those USB 2.0 connections also acting as the display connection.

Other specs about the monitor include a native res of 1366x768, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness and LED backlit illumination. The first fully working sample was demonstrated at the SID 2010 event and Samsung plan to debut it to the mass market in 2011.
