Samsung Presents USB-powered 18.5-inch Display

Jun 02, 2010
Samsung managed to present a number of great devices at the SID 2010 conference and one of them is the 18.5-inch LCD display.

This is a gadget of the next generation since previously similar devices did not exceed the 7-inches limit.

Not only is the new LCD display from Samsung bigger than other devices from the same category, it is also more environmentally-friendly, registering lower energy consumption.

Due to improved transmittance of the TN-mode panel along with a luminance efficiency of the backlight, Samsung's latest innovation consumes energy as low as 6.3W.

The company's new display was presented at Samsung's booth, being connected to a computer through USB2.0 cable.

Probably the only drawback of this LCD display is its lifetime which is 30,000 hours (normally LCD monitors have a lifetime of 50,000 hours). This is because of the edge-lit backlight. Samsung hopes to launch its new display by 2011.
