LG is working on a new series of IPS monitors with four new thin models pairing high-quality IPS LCD panels with efficient LED backlighting. With better color reproduction and viewing angles IPS is often considered the superior technology and LG is now targeting retail.
LG IPS2062T, IPS226V, IPS236V and IPS231P are the names of the four monitors with 20″, 21.5″ and 23″ panels offering resolutions up to 1920×1080 pixels and a slim format. LG has been able to slim down the monitors to 19.5mm thanks to LED backlighting, and lowered power consumption by 27%.
The new IPS monitors also brings impressive contrast ratio at 5,000,000:1 and 178/178 degrees viewing angles. With 6ms GTG response time it is hardly the fastest around, but it should still be more than enough for the users appreciating the positive sides of the IPS technology.
The first three models are for retail with a solid foot, while LG IPS231P targets professionals and comes with an adjustable foot, pivot included. The monitors sport D-Sub, DVI-D ingångar, but some also has HDMI, while IPS231P also has audio outputs and 1 watt speakers.
With black piano paint design the new monitors are slated for a Fall launch.
