IPS206t IPS226v IPS236v and IPS236p LG to release LED backlit IPS computer monitors

Currently Apple is the only manufacturer with LED-backlit IPS monitors currently on sale. Hazro also plans to release some LED-backlit IPS computer monitors at some point. The manufacturer of pretty much all In-Plane Switching panels, LG Electronics, has announced at IFA 2010 four new PC monitors combining IPS panel technology with LED backlighting. All panels feature a full HD resolution (except for the 1600×900 of the 20″ IPS206T), 250 cd/m2 typical brightness and a 6ms grey-to-grey response time. The IPS231P is the ‘professional’ iteration – with the only apparent difference at present being the addition of built-in speakers and a stand with height, swivel and pivot adjustment as well as the usual tilt. The ‘consumer’ computer screens include the 20″ IPS206T, 22 inch IPS226V and 23 inch IPS236V. At present there are no prices or dates for the new monitors but we will of course bring you this information as soon as we get it. For further information check the source article here.

Update: The IPS226V and IPS236V are now available in relatively limited retail capacity in the UK and across Europe. We are hoping for other models in the series and also the E2370V to launch shortly. We will try to get hold of a review sample shortly, if possible.
