Samsung is introducing a really cool new 30” LCD display at Cebit this week called the SyncMaster XL30. The specs claim that the display has a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a 2ms response time.

Naturally HDCP means that the display can also double as a HDTV set. The only thing that disturbs me about the display is that it seems to be a 4:3 aspect ratio design rather than a wide 16:9, which would really suck.Rather than using the common CCFL as the source of the displays backlighting Samsung is using LED backlighting. This tech promises better color reproduction and less power consumption at the same time. No word on pricing as yet, but expect it to be near $2000 when you consider the current 30” LCD goes for $1600 without the LED backlighting. Story and image via Gizmodo.
