22-inch monitors being ideal for Vista. Samsung is now telling us that 24-inch panels are where it's at. That extra 2-inches makes room for a pair of A4 sheets side-by-side as well as the Vista right-side bar and margins. Shame those "industry experts" weren't more clear about this before Samsung managed to sell-out their stock of 22-inch panels, eh? Anyway, Sammy's new 1,920 x 1,200 LCD panel is LED-backlit and covers an industry-high 111% of the NTSC color gamut; an ideal resolution for watching HD flicks with the color saturation required to keep photogs and designers whistling while they work. Rounding out the specs are a 180-degree viewing angle, contrast ratio "greater than 1000:1," and 250cd/m2 brightness. Samsung is ramping up production in Q2 (i.e., now) so we should see the new panels sneaking out in monitors by the end of Q2 or early Q3.
