Samsung SA850 with PLS panel

Samsung's SA850 uses the company's proprietary Super Plane to Line Switching (S-PLS) panel technology. The technology is being positioned as a direct alternative to In-Plane Switching (IPS). According to Samsung, PLS provides wider viewing angles, higher brightness, and purportedly costs 15 percent less than IPS to manufacture.

While we can't yet definitively call PLS superior technology to IPS, we are quite curious as to how that "15 percent cheaper" claim will translate into price.

I've seen wide footstands before, but the SA850 definitely has one of the widest. It seems Samsung is taking no chances on this one getting knocked over.
