A budget professional monitor

Subject: Displays | March 16, 2007 - 01:15 PM |

The Samsung SyncMaster XL20 undergoes the scrutiny of The Tech Zone, as they find out how well LED technology works as a light source in an LCD monitor.  With much better colour reproduction than is found in most monitors and good brightness, this is less an expensive gaming LCD and more a cheap way to get a professional quality monitor.  It even comes with a hood to let you work without interference.

"On the outside the Samsung SyncMaster XL20 looks like your run of the mill 20" LCD, but on the inside there's a difference

in some of the underlying technology. Rather than using a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) as a backlight the XL20 uses

an array of that geeks favourite source of illumination, the LED. In particular, this unit uses an RGB LED that produces a

very true white as well as a perfectly even backlight. This is said to produce 114% of the NTSC colour gamut. There's a full

run-down on what this monitor can do on the next page as to what this monitor can do. The long and the short of it is Samsung

has saddled this new backlight technology to an already super-bright 250cd/m² monitor with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and an 8ms

pixel response time, which makes for a very exciting product that we're hoping pans out in testing."
