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.
All of the screens have the same thin 19mm thick profile and 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio. All of the screens have a 2MS response time, but for that BX2031 with its 5ms response time. Inputs on the three larger screens include dual HDMI. The BX2031 will sell for $169, the BX2231 will cost $199, the BX2331 will cost $239, and the BX2431 will sell for $279 with all of them hitting stores this month.
