If you need perfect colour representation that can show colours other monitors only wish they could display, a backlit LCD might be your best choice. ViewSonic now offers a VLED221wm, which is a 22-inch 1680x1050 widescreen LED backlit LCD monitor for not too steep a price. It will certainly set you back a bit more than a regular LCD, but this screen is not really aimed at the casual gamer. Think Computers were absolutely blown away by this display, especially during the all black test.
"LED backlit LCD's are something that we are just starting to see come into the consumer market.
A lot of new notebook LCD's are LED backlit, but you really do not see that many desktop LCD's
that are LED backlit. Mainly because producing a LED backlit LCD is 2-2x as expensive as
producing the normal CCFL backlit LCD's. Today we will be looking at the VLED221wm 22-inch
display from ViewSonic, which is the world's first sub $1000 LED backlit LCD, which will allow
for most people to get their hands on it. It features an impressive 12000:1 dynamic contrast
ratio and ability to represent 118% of the NTSC c olor gamut, which will provide great color
reproduction. Let's see what the VLED221wm is all about."
