The XL24 is a high-end computer monitor that uses LED backlighting to illuminate its display. It is the next model up from the SyncMaster XL20, and has the same features. The main difference is that its screen is larger, at 24" diagonal, and has a somewhat unconventional 16:10 image aspect ratio. The contrast ratio is sitll 1000:1 and overall brightness is still 250 cd/m2. The LED backlighting is designed to provide a brighter and wider color gamut than typical LCD displays, and this does translate into a higher number of colors but also makes for a higher price point. This 24" version is considerably more expensive than the XL20 below it. It has the same wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, though, like the XL20 it does not have any HDMI inputs (Its 15-pin D-Sub is HD compatible, though). The display's native resolution is 1920 x 1200, and it accepts DVI-I, DVI-D and VGA formats. Samsung also covers this model with a 3-year warranty.
