Dell adds 16:9 ratio S2409W to display mix

Dell S2409W Display

Dell has quietly slipped out the S2409W. The 24-inch screen is Dell's first to switch from a normal 16:10 ratio to a wider 16:9. Although this sacrifices resolution, dropping from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080, the resolution matches the 1080p output of Blu-ray movies and most other HD formats and results in a larger overall picture for those and most other widescreen videos. An HDMI input gives the S2409W a direct video input for movie players and game consoles.

DVI and VGA are equally available for computer input on the display, which is listed with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and a 5ms average pixel response time. It isn't given the same color accuracy as displays like the 2709W but still reproduces 85 percent of the NTSC color range. Dell claims the S2409W ships within one to two business days and gives it a $379 price.
