LG Challenges Apple LED Cinema Display

When it came to drawing up my TrustedReviews Christmas List this year I demonstrated some fairly expensive taste including the Intel X-25M SSD and Apple's 24in LED Cinema Display but could LG make this latter craving a little less expensive on my wallet?

Formerly announced this week in order to beat the CES rush, the 'W2486L LED BLU' is the surprisingly wordy name given to LG's first LED backlit display.

Measuring in at a consumer friendly 24 inches, the screen is claimed to achieve a monstrous 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Yes indeedy this is LG, king of the humongous contrast ratio claims but with LED involved I wouldn't get too cynical - after all with this tech individual pixels in the screen can actually be turned off so just how dark is that?!

Elsewhere a 2ms response time and automatic brightness control are listed along with the environmentally and economically welcome fact that the W2486L should consume less than half the power of a traditional 24in LCD display. Connectivity info would've also been nice, but for now we'll take what we can get. Pricing and availability are off the list for now too but you didn't really expect anything less.

We'll have a fondle at CES and let you know how it goes...
