LED-based monitors are nothing new. Well, not anymore anyway. Unfortunately, so far at least, they haven't really lived up to their full potential. Most are made with TN panels, and with them you usually get a thin panel and low power consumption, but color reproduction and peak brightness are, in general, not as impressive as on some IPS or PVA-based monitors.
Fortunately, the six LED-based monitors we profile are priced at about $300 or less. Yes, LED-based monitors can make for great displays, just don't expect the world of them.
For reviews of all monitors, stop by the monitor hub, for some hot monitor action.
