Acer has introduced a new LED-backlit 24" LCD display that is just 14mm thick. The Slim Line S243 promises a contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1, 250 nits brightness, 2ms response time, and a power consumption of only 17W.
However, all this is irrelevant. Most people will get it for its looks, which are impressive to say the least. It's still not available in Europe, but list prices range from €266 to around €350 depending on the region. It sounds like quite a lot compared to CCFL panels, but if you compare it to LED units it's very competitive.
