Dell deals multimedia TFT displays

Goes all peripheral

Boost IT visibility and business value

Dell has started shipping three new TFT displays, offered under its UltraSharp brand. The biggest is the 24in 2407WFP which costs £825 including VAT and delivery at the Dell online shop. Hunt around and you'll find it on sale for £765 or so.

It's got a 1,920 x 1,200 WUXGA widescreen resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 6ms response (grey-to-grey) - or 16ms (black-to-white), if you prefer - and the brightness rating is 450 cd/m². The 2407WFP has a VGA input, a DVI-D connector with HDCP support and S-video, composite and component connectors. Add in four USB 2.0 ports, a nine-in-one card reader and a fully adjustable stand with rotate, swivel and tilt and you've got every feature that you could hope for apart from HDMI and a digital TV tuner.

Then we come to a pair of 20in TFTs. The UltraSharp 2007WFP costs £438 and has a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, while the UltraSharp 2007FP (no W, you'll note) costs £428 and has a regular 1,600 x 1,200 resolution. Both of these panels have 800:1 contrast ratio, 16ms response and 300cd/m² brightness, but while they both have DVI-D, VGA, S-video and composite connectors, the 2007FP doesn't support HDCP. The moral of the tale would seem to be that you should only watch protected-content movies on a widescreen display. ®
