Samsung debuts the eco-friendly "finger-slim" XL2370 LED HD monitor


Today in Korea, Samsung announced an eco-friendly full HD LED monitor, the XL2370. It’s said to have a “finger-slim” design, but the press release makes no mention of how thick it actually is. But we do know that the XL2370 has a “mega dynamic” contrast ratio of 5M:1, 2ms response time and 1920×1080 resolution. Oh, and it has “Starlight Touch Controls.”

I’ll go out on a limb and say this is a 23-inch model based on the model number. Taking after the HDTV line, the XL2370 comes with the Touch of Color bezel that supposedly reduces glare and light reflections. But more importantly, it makes the monitor easier to recycle because the ToC manufacturing process includes zero “harmful paints and sprays” or so says the press release.

The LED HD monitor will be available in Korea later this month and ships to Europe and other countries in August.
