LG Announces “Unbeatably Slim” LED Monitor
LG Electronics, no stranger to slim TVs and displays, announced today its slimmest LED monitor, the E90. Measuring only 7.2mm thick, this 21.5-inch widescreen 1920×1080 display has a response time of 2 ms, which LG touts is great for fast-moving action flicks and sports matches. The power supply and D-Sub/DVI-D/HDMI ports are in the stand to keep the display slim, which makes it easier to connect those cables to this monitor; in addition, power usage is reduced as much as 40% compared to CCFL LCD monitors. Available starting this month, and the E90 will be on display at CES 2011.
With more and more consumers watching movies and videos on their desktop PCs, the quality of the monitor is more important than ever before. The E90 is easily the best choice for watching action movies or sporting matches because with a response time of just 2 milliseconds, the monitor’s display remains clear and bright even during fast-moving action sequences. And LG’s Image Booster software, blurry streaming content from video sites such as YouTube are significantly enhanced so they look terrific on the E90’s vivid display.
“The E90 is the result of advanced technology and beautiful design coming together in perfect alignment,” said Si-hwan Park, Vice President of LG’s monitor division. “With its revolutionary features in terms of design and picture quality, the E90 is the leading example of the company’s “SUPER LED” monitor line that is setting new benchmarks for style and performance.”
In keeping with its ultra slim design, the LG E90 places the power supply and the socket connecting the monitor with the PC on the back of the stand, an innovation called EZ-cabling. In addition to the reduced footprint offered by its light weight and slim size, the E90 manages to reduce both energy consumption – as much as 40 percent less than conventional CCFL-backlit LCD monitors – and use of hazardous materials such as halogen and mercury in its manufacturing.
LG’s newest monitor will be on display at the 2011 CES Innovations Awards, where it will be recognized as an “Honoree” product in the computer peripherals category.
The E90 will be available starting this month in select markets.
