LCD's have come a very long way - from the original 20ms monsters they were, to now 30", 3D/120hz, Eyefinity/Surround Vision setups... Samsung are another first to the market with 1ms response time.
Samsung announce the P2770FH LCD which is rated at 1ms.
Young Bae, Samsung's director of display marketing issued a statement saying "a prime example of Samsung's leadership in display engineering, and creative professionals and computer gamers seeking the best possible viewing experience will immediately appreciate its benefits."
At the moment there are plenty of 2ms screens - but the Samsung P2770FH is the first 1ms screen to be announced - which is twice as fast as current competing models. Samsung claim that the P2770FH completely eliminates motion blur and ghosting effects.
The cost of LCDs for computer users is coming down all the time. I remember how expensive an LCD was back when most of us were still running CRT screens and today you can pick an LCD up for practically nothing. Samsung is huge in the LCD TV business and the company produces all sorts of LCDs for computer users too. The company has pulled the covers off a new series of displays for computer users called the 31 Series.
The series includes the 20-inch, BX2031, 21.5-inch BX2231, 23-inch BX2331 and 24-inch BX2431 screens. All of the screens use LED backlight tech to save power, provide nice colors, and image quality. The screens also use Samsung Magic Angle tech to make sure full contrast and color is available from all angles. The screens have many of the same features in common, save the small BX2031 that has its own specs like a 1600 x 900 resolution and only VGA/DVI-D inputs.

It wasn't long ago when display enthusiasts got excited over OLED news, a few demos here and there and just the news of it "will be out in a few years".
Well, Toshiba has slapped that in the face - they have decided to cut OLD plans, the decision was based on a surge in demands for LCD's this year, another contributing factor was the recent financial crisis hurting the earnings for Toshiba.
Toshiba's subsidiary company, Toshiba Mobile Display Corp partnered with Panasonic had invested $190 million in 2008 to set up a production line for OLED at a factory in Ishikawa prefecture. Their plan was to produce 1.5 million OLED screens for smartphones per year - but obviously this won't be happening now.
All staff involved with the now cancelled production and R&D of OLED will be transferred to the LCD panel division - this is a great move, at least the staff aren't just being laid off. The company will now focus on OLED-related R&D for lighting equipment only.
