he's just quoting what it says on the DELL website!!! i dont think he really cares that much either, but at least it is good to know that we are saving the rainforest 1 tree at a time!!! (big circle hug everyone!)

LED Backlit TN's should give less light bleed than standard TN's shouldn't it?
#5
wasnt this priced under 200 on offer.. all the bleedy monitors have been massivly inflated in price
esp the samsungs.. or lets say the one am after lol

250 Cd/m2 is not terribly bright, though

except that packaging material is not made out of rainforest trees. :)

I don't think it being TN has got anything to do with it. A smaller lightsource may help, or it may just give more focused and annoying backlight bleed so we'll have to wait for a few more LED monitors before deciding that.

As far as I can see the main advantage of LED backlights in these sorts of screens is that they reduce power usage.

For monitors you're unlikely to use even that, even in the sunny room where I have my PC I never have the brightness of my 300cd/m² monitor at more than half as any higher causes me eyestrain. Unless you're planning to use it outside or at a distance then 250 is more than enough.

The potential advantages of LED backlighting over CCFL are:

1) Lower power consumption
2) Improved physical attributes, i.e. thinner, lighter
3) Longer backlight life
4) Improved colour Gamut, i.e. they can reproduce a greater range of colours.
5) More consistant backlight coverage. Due to multiple light sources from LED's rather then one or two CCFL lamps.
6) No shift in colour gamut over lifetime. CCFL output wil shift over time.
7) Consistant brightnes over lifetime. CCFL's lose brightness over their lifetime. LED's generally remain consistant until they go "pop"
8) Less hazardous materials to dispose off at end of life.

Obviously not all implimentations will realise every one of these benefits. But these are the key potential gains over conventional CCFL backlighting.

The OP is a little confused 'This is a LED-LCD against the more common TFT-LCD.' ...it's still a TFT screen, only the backlight has changed from CCFL to LED.

Decent price I guess, though personally I'd never buy a TN.

I have just purchased 10 of these for work and they are good but not great. The first I did was turn off the power saving fature as all it did was dim the screen to the point it looked dull.

Thanks for all the helpful, constructive replies tips & info guys :). Saves me the typing - & the quibbling :p

Looks like they're not configured properly?

I spent quite a bit of time configuring my 19" TFT TN monitor when I purchased it a few years ago. For a start, it was too bright & everything was set at 100%. There are various settings to play with, & free programs out there to calibrate monitors properly - perhaps not to a professional standard, but surely anything's better than the rubbish default settings! And remember, once you do one to your liking, you'll hopefully only need to replicate the same settings on the other monitors :thumbsup:

Ah, I'd forgotton about the second one, I guess that'll have a few specialised benefits like easiest wall mounting and easier lan party travel.

3) Longer backlight life

Do you have any sorts of figures here? 10 years vs. 20 years?

Mentos

4) Improved colour Gamut, i.e. they can reproduce a greater range of colours.

Unfortunately, as the general software support isn't in place yet this is generally a disadvantage since it'll result in everything having shifted colours.

All rather academic for a cheap TN screen like this.

To add to that they should be theoretically more resistant to vibration and damage through transport. However, again it really depends on the individual screen unfortunatley.

EndlessWaves

Unofrtunately not. The industry will tell you LED backlights can outlast their CCFL counterparts by "upto" a factor of 2. In reality there are many factors which can close that gap. Generally you're looking at a backlight lifteime of 25k to 100k hours. I would expect an LED backlight in a similarly classed display to outlast its CCFL counterpart, but perhaps not always to the extent to warrant the extra cost. :roll:

Again it depends what you use the monitor for. If the application invovles somtthing like picture editing it would be advisable to consider an LED backliit display. Ofcourse you'd also need to invest in calibration equipment, as there's not point in having a screen that can output a broader range of the visible spectrum if its displaying everything incorrectly :)

The fact that its a TN screen doesn't necessarily mean it will fail to take the advantages of LED backlighting from a technical point of view. However, unfortunately it may be an indicator that the manufacturer has cut corners, so you could be right.
