Will Samsung have photographers feeling BLU?

Samsung XL20

Samsung SyncMaster XL20

And no, that's not "Blu" as in "Blu-ray"--it's "BLU" as in LED BLU, for the "light-emitting diode backlight unit" that illumines Samsung's new 20-inch SyncMaster XL20 display. Claiming it covers 114 percent of the NTSC color gamut and 100 percent of the AdobeRGB gamut, Samsung takes on Eizo's $2,700 ColorEdge CG210 for a mere $1,999. If it works as advertised--specs include a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 8ms response time--it will be on every photo and video editor's wish list this holiday season. Okay, maybe just mine.
