Samsung announced the Samsung XL2370, a new "finger-slim" 23" LCD display that promises to deliver the highest performance in Samsung's lineup. The Samsung XL2370 has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, 2ms GTG response time and a 5,000,000:1 mega dynamic contrast ratio (whatever that may mean in real-world terms). This new display will be available in South-Korea later this month, while other parts of the world will get it in August.
The Samsung XL2370 is Samsung’s highest performance display and the first to incorporate LED technology, giving the model a super-slim profile and significant energy-saving benefits.
The crystal-like bezel frame of Samsung XL2370 with Touch of Color (ToC™) design reduces the reflection of light and glare. The glossy stand offers a polished design, while the clear, crystal-like acrylic neck gives the illusion the monitor is floating.
Samsung XL2370 offers a suite of eco-conscious features including reduced energy consumption, requiring about 40% less power to operate compared with typical monitors of a similar size. In addition, the product does not contain toxic-materials such as halogen or mercury by adopting a LED backlight unit. The ToC™ manufacturing process eliminates harmful paints and sprays, increasing the monitor’ recyclability. The slim profile also dramatically reduces transportation costs and requirements for a smaller carbon footprint.
Samsung XL2370 also delivers the highest level of functionality. The monitor offers a mega dynamic contrast ratio (5M:1), delivering deep, rich colors, while its 2ms (GTG) video response time minimizes blurring when watching sports and fast-moving gameplay. The XL2370 also offers Full HD 1080p resolution (1920x1080) for optimized viewing of HD content and consumers can fully enjoy fantastically crisp images.
“We expect the XL2370 will open a new era of the LED monitor market,” said JaeYoung Lew of Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Division. “Samsung will pave the way in the LED monitor market with beautiful design and superb functionality, while responding to the market needs for eco-friendly technology.”

Now if they could only do this (white LED backlight units and thin design) for 24" and 30" S-PVA models we'd be all set.
The RGB LED backlight units, XL20 and XL30 are discontinued and were too much $ anyway. White LED's will be cheaper, but Samsung is slow to get moving on them.
