Default Samsung launches 30-inch LED-backlit monitor and USB monitor

Can you say "Sweet!"? I knew you could.

First up is the SyncMaster XL30. It is a 30" LCD that uses LED backlighting. This allows it to use true colors. "The monitor has a monstrous 2560 by 1600 pixel resolution, 3000 to 1 contrast ratio and a very high 2ms response time. Brightness is 300 cd/m2. There is also an on-board USB hub."

Next, we have the SyncMaster 940UX. It is a 19" monitor that will allow you to daisy-chain up to five more of them together via USB. Yes, USB.

dell already has a 30" lcd right, but i think the response time isn't 2ms so sweet . Im sure it will be like $1200 or something though. Guess i got to settle for a 22" this summer .

Sounds nice. I have a 30" dell and its great. This monitor sounds like it will cost $$$$$ perhaps somewhere around $2000. Dell just came out with a new 30" @ 1000:1 contrast ratio, which is $1600. I'm sure the led backlighting will provide a way better gammut though. I don't think the apple 30" has much of a market anymore, since the monitor is hugely over-priced, and has the worst specs out of 4 different 30" 2560x1600 monitors. I'm still waiting on the laser monitors
