LG’s new IPS Series 6 displays
I went to LG’s latest press conference in Japan on Wednesday, and I was able to grab a few pics of LG’s new IPS 6 series displays: the IPS226V in 21.5″ and the IPS236V in 23″. Let me tell you, I was impressed. As you’ll see from my pictures, the difference between IPS, TN and VA technologies is simply breathtaking. If you didn’t know, IPS panels are used for the iPhone 4, for example. They are very solid and considered the best for overall LCD quality (colors, viewing angles, etc).
Slower response time has long been a complaint of gamers regarding IPS displays (anything over 8ms can cause motion blur), but LG’s new panels boast a 6ms response time; with their 1,920 x 1,080 resolutions, 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 250 nits of brightness, HDMI port, reduced power consumption and 178-degree viewing angles, they are the perfect screens for… well, just about anything, from watching videos to fast-paced gaming.
Design wise, the new displays are very slim (19.5mm in depth) and look pretty sleek — except for one tiny detail: I can’t get over the wine glass-shaped base. Seriously, what the…? But that’s just my opinion, so maybe you’ll love it! (And for screen quality that good I’d be willing to overlook it!)
No word on pricing, but apparently IPS226V is set to launch in November and IPS236V in December of this year. (Now you all know what to get me for Christmas)
