Bucking the trend toward cheap TN panels, LG has revealed a quartet of new IPS displays at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany. FlatpanelsHD has the goods on the new LED-backlit LCDs, which are available in 20", 21.5" and 23" sizes. The screens have 6 ms grey-to-grey response times, 250 cd/m² luminosity ratings, and 5,000,000:1 claimed contrast ratios. You only get 1600x900 pixels with the 20" model, but the others share a 1080p display resolution. Sorry, no 1920x1200 options here.
Multimonitor fans will be pleased to note that LG has kept the vertical bezels relatively thin. None of the screens sports the DisplayPort input necessary for Eyefinity, however. The supposedly "professional" IPS231P doesn't even have an HDMI port, although it is the only one with an adjustable stand and built-in speakers.
Pricing and availability have yet to be detailed, and there's no word on whether these will LCDs will even be available outside Europe. I suspect the 20" and 21.5" will be relatively affordable, though. Thanks to Engadget for the tip.
