Received this press release today. Pretty long due to the fact that there are specifications for 9 LED monitors and their pricing too. That means when you read this post, you know (almost) every good thing about them 🙂 .
Samsung Strengthens Leadership in the IT Visual Display Category with nine new LED monitors
SINGAPORE, 9 June 2010 – Samsung Electronics has launched a comprehensive suite of nine LED monitors, designed to meet the visual display needs of today’s discerning consumers. Samsung’s market share in the IT Visual Display category has grown steadily over the years and today is the top brand in the LCD monitor market. The company intends to increase market share by demonstrating value through innovative features which will maximise user experience.
“At Samsung, we believe in putting the customer first by reviewing and assessing their needs. Based on this feedback, we have developed innovative technology solutions and best-in-class visual displays that meet and exceed their expectations. I am confident that our latest LED Monitor line-up is another key milestone in the IT Visual Display category that will drive continued business success,” said Mr. Moon Sung-Hyun, Managing Director, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd.
The latest LED line-up features ultra-slim and eco-friendly designs as well as the in-built Samsung Magic Series software for superior viewing experiences. The Magic Series software features the MagicAngle function which delivers a differentiated viewing experience, allowing users to experience perfect picture quality from any angle.
Samsung LED visual displays are among the most environmentally-friendly products in the market and have been designed to significantly reduce power consumption. Samsung’s MagicEco feature enables users to choose from four preset energy saving options (100%, 75%, 50%, and Power-Saving Off) which adjust the brightness of the screen accordingly. Samsung’s LED technology uses up to 40 per cent less power usage while in standard operation and uses a mere 0.3W when in standby mode. Additionally, the mercury and lead-free manufacturing process eliminates the use of harmful sprays and paints and makes it easier to recycle the LED Monitors at the end of the product’s life.
For easy viewing on dual displays, the Samsung Magic series includes the MagicReturn function which allows automatic screen return when one monitor is powered off. The intelligent transition of content from one monitor to a users’ second monitor, avoids disrupting work or entertainment when the monitor experiences power-off situations.

To enrich picture quality, the Series 70 is the only LED monitor which boasts 100 per cent sRGB colour coverage for deeper and richer images.
Ideal for the green conscious consumer, the PX2370 is a mere 16.5mm thin and is fused with Samsung’s exquisite Touch of Colour (ToC) design, crafted from materials that do not contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), making recycling simpler and safer. The design of the PX2370 is amplified with its unique crystalline neck and stand for a stunning effect.
