According to what TFTCentral have dug up, LG's spec sheets seem to show that the U2211H and U2311H are 6-bit+AFRC.
There's an on going thread about it at HardForum
, one of the TFTCentral editors have posted a few replies there too.
I should point out this paragraph from that article too:
Now this isn't really a massive issue in our opinion. Yes, it might make a difference to some people who are looking for a true 8-bit compatible display, but most regular users would never even notice any difference with panels using modern FRC mechanisms. In fact we saw no adverse affects of this technology when we reviewed some of these monitors either and neither did other review sites. I'm only bringing it up to offer full transparency and for those interested in the detail. I have also updated the relevant reviews with mention of this change.
Whilst the panel on the U2211H/U2311H is 6 bit, the colour reproduction is still superb (as noted by all reviews), better than any TN. So kyle-reece, you're kind of making a big deal out of it as unless you absolutely need true 8 bit, most people won't notice the difference.Edited by cracker - 2/10/11 at 11:39am
