Samsung offers two fast 22-inch LCDs

updated 08:15 am EDT, Fri August 29, 2008

Samsung 2233Hz and 2243Hz

Samsung's presence at IFA continued today with a pair of new LCD displays designed to eliminate ghosting almost entirely from computer screens. Both the 2233Hz and 2243Hz claim 22-inch panels with a 5ms gray-to-gray response time but also improve the poorer black-to-white response time that many LCD makers often omit from their specifications; a new imaging engine cuts the full pixel response time from 27ms to 9ms and should similarly trim down the amount of visual artifacts in extreme color changes during movement.

The 2233Hz is primarily built for the home and has the same glossy, wineglass look of its modern HDTV range; it uses DVI for input and has two free USB ports for peripherals but is locked into landscape view. The 2243Hz is more business-like with a simpler matte-finish design and gains both two extra USB ports as well as a rotating display for a portrait view of tall documents.

Samsung hasn't yet said when the two LCDs ship or to where, though their presence at IFA points to a Europe-first appearance. Prices are also unknown and may change depening on the country.
