LG have announced their first LED combination TV and monitor, the W2286L, a 22-inch display with whopping 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 20mm-thick widescreen display supports up to 1,680 x 1,050 resolution and has two HDMI inputs.
It’s also relatively earth-friendly compared to the competition, requiring 40-percent less power than comparable 22-inch displays. That’s partly due to the Auto Brightness feature, which adjusts backlighting depending on ambient conditions.
The LG W2286L is set to arrive in Korea soon, with a 24-inch model planned later in 2009. Pricing is unclear; according to a rough Google translation of the press release, the 22-inch display will be 41 won; considering that’s a smudge over three cents, which doesn’t sound quite right.
