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.
