The LED-backlit monitor panel has an color saturation level of 111% (of NTSC standard), compared to a saturation level of only 72% of NTSC for conventional monitors and will satisfy consumers used to the crisp colors prevalent in high-definition (HD) broadcasting, according to Samsung.
The 24-inch screen size is optimal for systems equipped with the Windows Vista operating system (OS). While conventional thinking has been that Windows Vista works best with a 22-inch screen (the size of two A4 pieces of paper), the 22-inch segment is not wide enough to support full-HD. In addition, industry experts now say that a 24-inch display provides a better Windows Vista fit to also include the Vista right side bar and margins.
The display uses Samsung's S-PVA technology which delivers a contrast ratio of over 1000:1 and a 180 degrees viewing angle. The panel has a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

Price is key here. Remember that every panel maker out there is going to have LED backlit screens in a year. Rushing to that wallet if the price is high, could be a painful lesson.
If it's priced reasonably they will sell well.
