Samsung 931C color-accurate, affordable LCD

Samsung 931C LCD

By far the primary concern for LCD owners is color. Until recently, LCD manufacturers were focused almost exclusively on pixel response times and the elimination of the ghosting artifacts that appear on slower panels. The reduction has often been at the expense of the color gamut: many LCD screens sacrifice a portion of their color range and even larger portions of their accuracy to draw images as quickly as possible. Samsung's new 931C display is very different: though the company still claims a very fast 2ms response time, the 19-inch screen also displays the NTSC color range with near-perfect accuracy and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. For $299 each, the 931C should be equally valuable to game players finally looking to replace old CRTs as well as photo and video editors looking for a good reference monitor. Samsung is previewing the display at the World Cyber Games in October and will release it soon after.
