The sleek LED monitor features a transparent TV stand neck with the concept of 'Floating Design'. Samsung's "Magic Lux" technology automatically detects the brightness around the monitor and adjusts it accordingly. The PX2370 also displays the 100% of the existing sRGB colors, while it can save about 40 percent of power compared to previous models, making it more eco-friendly. "Magic Angle" is also responsible for the expanded viewing angle of the new LED model. The PX2370 supports mega dynamic contrast ratio, 2ms response time, full HD resolution and 16:9 wide aspect ratio.The PX2370 will be available in April from Samsung resellers at a price of $369.

Samsung's "3D Cube" is also a main attraction at te company's booth at CES. It is a massive video screen consisting of 36 55-inch 3D LED backlit televisions that intend to provide visitors with a 3D experience. Aside from the 3D LED-backlit televisions, Samsung is also displaying 3D televisions with regular LCD screens and plasma displays.
The company is focused on introducing stereoscopic 3D into its LED-backlit television models. However, it's debatable whether 3D television is ready for prime time, as the industry has yet to sort out incompatible approaches from competing technologies and has failed to provide a more comfortable alternative to forcing everyone to wear 3D glasses. In addition, the products' outrageous prices and the lack of content at the moment aren't providing consumers with much motive to pay the premium for 3D televisions.
Samsung will also unveil eight new LED-backlit television models, sized from 19- to 65-inches, and also new products in regular LCD and plasma display televisions.
