LG intros IPS Series 6 Super 1080p LED displays

updated 06:00 am EDT, Fri October 29, 2010

High-quality, wide-viewing angles, coming soon

LG has introduced a new line of IPS Series 6 displays at a Japanese press conference this week. The two new models introduced include the 21.5-inch IPS226V and the 23-inch IPS236V. LG put the displays side-by-side with TN and VA panels and the difference in picture quality was striking.

The slim new displays have a wide-color gamut and wide viewing angles of 178-degrees. Both models are 1080p, have a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratioand 250 nits of brightness. Connectivity includes an HDMI port, which coupled with their 6ms response time, which makes them suitable for high-definition gaming. Typically, IPS displays don't feature such sharp response times, and have in the past been unsuitable for fast moving action. The new LG displays break this mold and will also be popular with graphic designers looking for a color accurate monitor.

LG is yet to announce pricing, although confirmed that the IPS226V will launch in Japan this November, while the IPS236V will arrive in December.

    can't wait for pricing

    always happen with more IPS alternatives
    would be nice for some users to have the built-in webcam, but most people are happy with add-on cameras.
