That looks awesome. If the price is as low as they say it will be, I am picking one up. It will go along nicely with a G80 card.

And it has dvi :D

Nice, I might have to pair mine with it.

Unless Dell will release a cheaper 24" with the same kind of specs (higher res though ;) ) for $500 or less :D

Sure nice price, but i need 1080p
Wonder if Dell will ever make the rumored 2707 for $550 or less :)

Doubt it.

The 27" display will sit above the 24 and below the 30" displays, so price is likely going to be 1k or more.

I haven't seen any engineering samples of it yet, but thats what I want to get as my next screen.

Hoping that it will be 2560x1600 like the 30" :)

The color gamut that it will have is the main reason I am looking forward to it.

That's pretty awesome...hopefully there are some good coupon deals that bring it down to around $200. I'll definitely nab one. :D

It should be much cheaper initially and even more cheaper in the long run, no need to upgrade video cards (SLI or XFire) with every new game :)

Ideally I would like to get 32" 1080p, wonder why nobody makes them. I believe it would sell like hot cake even better than the Westy 37" 1080p, provided it's well priced.

ah, its probably a TN panel, not an IPS one like in the 2007 and 2407..

The S-PVA and P-MVA panels are best compromise for gaming and daily use. (Today Technology).

DELL TODAY SALES PRICES, might change without notice :)
2007WFP $339.15 (S-IPS Panel)
2407WFP $679.15 (S-PVA Panel)
3007WFP $1,444.15 (S-IPS Panel)
The LCD prices coming down nicely :thumbsup:

Why wait for the new E207WFP model $289 pricetag, unless it's improved model and the E doesn't stand for economy?

Purchasing Considerations

TN Gamers
Considered a "gamers" panel due to it's fast pixel response times which reduces trailing images know as "ghosting". However, this advantage has been reduced by new technologies to accelerate pixel response times in other panel types. Colors and contrast tend to be weak and blacks are not truly dark. Viewing angles are significantly limited. However, monitors based on this technology tend to be inexpensive.

IPS / S-IPS Graphics Work or Web Browsing
Considered to have the best color reproduction of all panel types, these panels are well suited for graphics work or web browsing. Pixel response time is also good but slower than the TN "gamers" panel. Contast and blacks are also less dark than VA panels but viewing angles are excellent.

MVA / P-MVA / PVA / S-PVA Compromise for All-Around Use
These panels are a compromise between the fast pixel response times of the TN panel and the excellent color reproduction of the IPS panels. Contrast and blacks are best of all the panel types. Viewing angles are similar but slightly inferior to IPS.

yeah...

btw, how much larger is a 20.1" lcd than a 17" lcd?

superklye
10-14-06, 09:52 PM
It won't be as tall, but it'll be a bit wider. My 20" is a 4:3 as opposed to this, which is a 16:10 monitor. I don't really have a good basis for comparison, but my 20" is MUCH larger than my 17".

A 20.1 WS is about as tall as a 19" 4:3, but much wider...

I think it's more like a 17" LCD but with the wider screen. The 24" widescreen is about as tall as a 20" but with the extra 2" on either side.

My fault, just did some math and you're right :

on a 4:3, the angle of the diagonal is tan-1 (3/4) = 0.6435 thus the height is diagonal_length * sin(0.6435) = diagonal_lenght * 0.6.

On a 19" this equals to 11.4", on a 17" it's 10.2" .

on a 16:10, we have that height = diag_l * 0.53 and width = diag_l * 0.848 .

On a 20" this means 10.6" h x 16.69", so it's more like a 17" 4:3 in height...

Yeah, you guys are right. I kept thinking that 17" were 1280 high, not wide. Whoops!

It will probably be priced 280 in the UK. Sigh.

Still way lower, probably, than what it will be priced here, see my previous post about the 2007 price ;)
