Yes, PLS

Long, long, long awaited model from Samsung is now in front of you.
New PLS technology (Plane-to-Line Switching) has been developed by Samsung as an answer to growing popularity of IPS panels (In-Plane Switching) made by LG.

Is PLS a revolution?
How does it look next to its competitors?
Is it much different from Samsung older technology (PVA)?
How does it perform in various tasks as a multimedia monitor?
What about LCD glow and crystalline effect?
Tons of questions.

No review is valid unless a reference monitor is used to compare and validate observations and measurements.
This unit has been tested next to NEC 2490WUXi (H-IPS with A-TW polarizer, standard color gamut, CCFL backlight) as a reference monitor with LaCie Blue Eye Pro / SpectraView II / Eye One Display 2 calibration kits.
Other technologies used for comparisons: CRT, TN (standard gamut, LED BL), S-PVA (wide gamut, CCFL BL).

You are invited to go through this thorough review and decide if this monitor is right for you.
