LG announces new monitors
New monitors from LG at CES 2010.
LG is the first vendor out of the gate at CES 2010 with major monitor announcements. The company revealed a number of 3D and LED monitors today, so let's get right to them.
LG E50 monitor series (20-, 21.5-, 23-inch class sizes)
- LED backlight
- Two-way ergonomic stand
- Slim depth (0.69-inch)
- Over 40 percent power saving

According to LG, the 23-inch version of the E50 is the first product to earn UL Environment's new Sustainable Product Certification (SPC) for high-tech equipment.
LG E40 monitor series (23-inch class size)
The E40 line has a less sleek design than the E50, but according to LG, it incorporates all the core functions of the E50 series.
LG's new W2363D monitor adds 120Hz refresh rate--necessary for doing stereoscopic 3D.
