Samsung unveils 23-inch, 2048x1152 LCD

updated 08:05 am EST, Thu November 6, 2008

Samsung 2342BWX

Samsung today set what should be a first for computer displays in releasing the 2342BWX. The 23-inch display shares the movie-friendly, extra-wide 16:9 aspect ratio becoming increasingly common with most displays but jumps from the usual 1920x1080 to 2048x1152; the extra space is said to be large enough for two letter-sized documents to fit side by side and makes room for sidebars and other vertical elements in the operating system. This reduces the need for a second LCD, Samsung says.

The Korean electronics giant likewise claims a vivid picture with a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a 5ms gray-to-gray pixel response time. Samsung launches the display first in Korea for the equivalent of $295. International releases are likely but haven't been announced with this initial release.

    OK....

    And exactly why is there a sluttily-dressed woman sitting on the thing? Is that the monitor stand? If so, I'm getting one!

    tasteful depiction

    I do not agree that this young woman is sluttily dressed. Her demure decolletage is far from immodest and her muted plaid skirt over full-length leotard stockings are by no means a coarse echo of schoolgirl impropriety. Do you have a problem with gold earrings, large and delicate?

    I do wonder why she is applying a wrestler's scissors grip to the 2048x1152 LCD monitor which she is holding between her knees, though.
