LG E2350VR is a 23″ display with Full HD resolution and LED backlighting, but to make it stand out the monitor has an upscaling circuit to make low-resolution material look better on the high resolution display.
LG calls the technology ”Super Resolution” and works in the same way as the upscaling chips found in home cinema receivers and some TVs, we presume. Exactly which circuit LG uses we don’t know for certain, but according to PCWatch the effect is noticeable and Super Resolution is adjustable in multiple levels.

LG E2350VR is specified to 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 5ms response time. The brightness is specified to 250 cd/m2 and the power consumption to 28 watt. The monitor has HDMI, DVI and D-Sub inputs, and detachable foot. This makes it possible to place it right next to a notebook with the displays on level.
LG has also come up with a technology for dividing the display into two parts (not Picture-in-Picture) and a Cinema Mode that when playing video, e.g. in a browsers, darkens the surrounding for better mood.
LG E2350VR uses a TN panel and with the LED backlighting it has a thin profile of 16mm. The price is around $250.
