Dell Introduces its First 16:9 24-Inch Monitor, Priced at $379


While Dell stays busy jazzing up its Studio line of laptops and desktops with various color schemes, the OEM let loose another product but without all the fanfare. Available now is Dell's S2409 24-inch widescreen LCD panel, representing the company's first 16:9 aspect ratio display. That puts the screen resolution at 1920x1080 (as opposed to 1920x1200 for 16:10), matching the 1080p output of most high definition content including Blu-ray movies. Other notables include:

  • HDMI with HDCP
  • 1000:1 contrast ratio
  • 0.276 mm pixel pitch
  • 5 ms response time (gray-to-gray)
  • 16.7 million colors

The new display doesn't come with bells and whistles such as a USB hub or integrated speakers, but it does carry a relatively friendly price tag at $379 with 3-year warranty.
