Test of the 1rst LCD at 100 Hz, the end of afterglow

Posted on Wednesday, Oct 25 2006 @ 00:46 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Partially unveiled at the CeBIT 2006, 100 Hz technology is coming for LCDs. The idea is that monitors will no longer display 50 or 60 images per second but 100! We received and tested the first display based on this new technology and there is no need in hiding it, the 100 Hz amazed us. It is by far the best innovation brought to flat monitors in years.

Huge disappointment, the technology is released first on a TV, the Samsung LE40M73BD. Here are, however, a few points to cheer us up:
  • you can connect the monitor to your computer with the HDMI input. You will be able to use this TV as a computer monitor (even if the resolution - 1366 x 768 pixels might be a bit low),
  • Monitors - dedicated to computers - using the same technology or at least based on the same principle will be released in 2007.
  • 100 Hz technology worked with all three possibilities: TV connected to a computer, to a console, to a DVD player.
  • To have more information and take a look at the results with movies, cartoons, games etc., go to Be Hardware.
