    Apple has been resting on its laurels with professional displays. Samsung is coming out with Touch of Color displays ranging from 19 inch (T160) to 26 inch (T260) with 20000:1 contrast!

    The two smallest screens are Samsung's fastest with a 2ms average pixel response time, while the larger models output at 5ms in return for an HDMI input that lets them play video from Blu-ray players and similar devices at up to 1080p.

    And get this; the HIGH end model, available in July, is $599 MSRP.

    Hmm...

    If this contrast is true, and samsung havent decided to use some stupid scale where one normal shade counts as 10 or something, then this will be interesting...

    And the Price too....

    Samsung has always made awesome quality LCD's. Many of my friends have Samsung monitors. They are WELL worth the extra $$.

    I would not be surprised if Apple sources Samsung LED LCD panels for the next generation of ACDs once the price drops (right now they run 2-4x what an ACD/Dell/NEC S-IPS monitor runs at 20", 23" and 30").

    I would simply like to point out that this is one of Samsung's new LCD TVs, which cite dynamic contrast ratios, not absolute. It's definitely true that they make excellent LCD TVs (I have one of last year's models at the moment and am very happy with it) but that's not the panel's absolute contrast ratio.

    "High end" as in large. The two smallest ones, available now, actually support faster 2 millisecond refresh.
