The Most Brilliant ChoiceDiscover what LED-backlit monitors can bring to your home (or home office). You’ll learn what’s new, what’s better, and why it matters. From optimal performance to lower energy use and greater environmental responsibility, a new breed of monitors is changing how we use our computers.

CCFL vs. LED

All light is not created equal. Take the sources that light up your monitor: conventional light source technology, CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp), does a good job, but it can have drawbacks. Because you need room for both the lamps and a reflector, it takes up a lot of space. The limited lifespan means that’s money you’ll have to spend on replacements. And since CCFLs span the entire width of the screen, control over contrast ratio is difficult—so you won’t get the best picture possible.

LED backlighting, however, is a newer technology that delivers benefits while conserving energy, space, and even the environment. Samsung’s advanced LED monitors are brilliant examples of this advanced technology’s many advantages.

See the difference with your own eyes

LED monitors ensure that picture quality is nearly perfect for watching movies in full HD, playing the hottest games, and working on presentations. Because LED lights are locally dimmed, you can dim certain areas of the screen while keeping other areas bright. The result is a higher contrast ratio, which creates a better picture, along with providing energy savings. The Samsung LED backlit EX2220 monitor, for instance, boasts a 5,000,000:1 mega dynamic contrast ratio for an amazingly sharp and clear picture. This series features remarkable response times (as fast as two milliseconds), so it can keep up with the fast-moving graphics and video elements of the latest games. Its stellar images make it perfect for watching the latest blockbuster, or polishing a business presentation.

Make a positive environmental impact

LED monitors such as the EX2220 represent some of the best models for saving energy and truly being environmentally responsible. They’re extremely energy-efficient, using 30%-50% less power than conventional monitors. And unlike CCFLs, LED-lit monitors contain no mercury, halogen, or lead. That makes them safe for the environment when the time eventually comes to recycle them. The well-crafted design is slimmer and lighter than conventional monitors, which saves materials and makes them easier to disassemble. Further, the EX2220 has earned various Energy Saving Certifications

With exceptional performance, complete reliability, and eco-friendly design, it doesn’t get better than this.
