Samsung Electronics is now preparing the introduction of some shiny new LCD monitors that bear the SyncMaster brand, the Series 4 models which feature a matte black coating, an LED backlight, and a stand allowing for height adjustment, tilt and pivot.
The first Series 4 displays are the 22-inch S22A450BW LED and 24-inch S24A450BW LED, both of which feature a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, 250 cd/m2 brightness, and a 5ms response time. Set for a June release, the S22A450BW LED has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels and a (recommended) price tag of 219, while the July-bound S24A450BW LED costs 279 and tops 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Later this summer Samsung will also introduce the 19-inch (5:4) S19A450BR LED, as well as the S19A450MR LED, S22A450MW LED and S24A450MW LED models (these add to the mix some built-in speakers).
