When it comes to having the world's slimmest display, competition is fierce, and technicalities abound. One manufacturer in particular makes that class-leading claim more often than others, however, so it was no surprise when LG decided to show off a "world slimmest monitor" at its enormous IFA hall this year. The E2391VR is, as expected, incredibly thin. At 7.2mm, it's noticeably skinnier than the 9.3mm iPhone 4, so if you actually spend time looking at the side of your display, you'll probably really like this one. But -- and this, as with other models, can be a very big but for some users -- all of the ports, and most of the critical components, are in the TV's base. The 23-inch model we saw is rather small to wall-mount, so that base shouldn't be an issue for most. It offers 1080p video, a 2ms response time, HDMI, D-sub, headphone out, and a "10,000,000:1 contrast ratio" -- and, well, it looks great too, though reflections were a glaring issue in the bright exhibit hall. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but jump past the break for some PR magic.

LG TO UNVEIL SAVVY NEW MONITORS THAT REDEFINE DESIGN AND FUNCTION

LG's Newest Top-End Monitors Boast Graceful Design, State-of-the-Art 3D Technology for Wider Viewing Angle and More Vivid Pictures

SEOUL, Aug. 28, 2011 –- LG Electronics (LG) will be taking the wraps off its new highend monitors – the ultra-slim, vivid picture-quality E2391VR and D237IPS -– at IFA 2011 in Berlin, Germany. The E2391VR's 7.2 mm depth and luxurious acryl finish are sure to make it a hit with style-savvy consumers while the D237IPS boosts LG's market-leading Film Pattern Retarder (FPR) 3D display technology on IPS panels, for even clearer, brighter 3D images.

"These monitors aren't just for work and internet browsing, they were designed to be the center of entertainment for any bedroom, study or dormitory," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "The E2391VR and D237IPS combine elegant design and unique technology to look great in any room and still be able to deliver exceptional images and videos."

Innovative Design, Brilliant Technology
With its SUPER Slim, 7.2mm depth, the E2391VR takes up the minimum of space while adding a stylish touch to the décor of any interior. With a narrow bezel measuring just 4.35mm, the E2391VR's screen looks borderless and enables to show wider display. The E2391VR's hanger-type hinge design makes it easy for users to adjust the monitor to the exact viewing angle they need, ensuring it is always comfortable to watch.

The E2391VR's SUPER+ Resolution ensures the highest picture quality for any digital content. SUPER+ Resolution prevents any decrease in resolution during format upgrades, while sharpening blurry edges and adding new life to dim colours. The E2391VR also delivers an exceptionally crisp and vivid picture thanks to a contrast ratio of more than 10,000,000:1. What's more, the E2391VR is highly energy efficient through SUPER Energy Saving technology.

More Realistic 3D with IPS Panel
The D237IPS uses state-of-the-art 3D technology combined with IPS panel, to deliver the ultimate in top-quality, comfortable 3D viewing. The D237IPS boasts "Flicker-Free" certification -– from European quality assurance agencies TÜV and Intertek -– and lower crosstalk, ensuring less dizziness and headaches that users commonly experience with conventional 3D monitors. With a brightness of 100nits, more than twice that of competing 3D monitors, the D237IPS offers a clearer 3D picture to help reduce eyestrain. And LG's battery-
less, ultra-light 3D glasses provide an extremely comfortable 3D viewing experience for longer periods of time.

The D237IPS ensures there is no colour shift regardless of the angle from which the monitor is viewed and consistent colour and brightness also keep the 3D images realistic. The 3D IPS monitor broadens the viewing angle so that viewers can enjoy 3D from a wider range of positions. Ensuring viewers always have plenty of 3D content to watch, the D237IPS also features an excellent 2D to 3D conversion function.
