LG W53 series monitors to reduce eye strain.

In a crowded market the LG W53 series monitors are trying to offer something a little different. The new line of monitors promise to "reduce eyestrain during extended use".

This claim is made possible by automatic brightness control that optimises the picture settings and the brightness of the screen based on the light in the room and the content being viewed. By lowering the intensity of the backlight, this feature also reduces the W53′s power consumption, making it a more energy efficient option. To further avoid eyestrain, it also includes a timer that reminds users to take a break from their work at predetermined intervals.

Screen sizes for the W53 series range from 18.5" to 27" and all monitors larger than 21.5" offer a 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, ideal for watching HD movies and games. The monitors also boast a Digital Fine Contrast (DFC) ratio of up to 50,000:1 and a response time of as quick as 2ms.

The monitors should be available from May 2009. No word on pricing yet.

    Truly amazing invention. It’s good to know that researchers of these products truly focuses on our health and well being. Our eye sight should never be neglected or else we’ll never ever be able to watch tv or work on our computers again. This site might also help. Thanks for sharing this.
