Dell SP2309W Display

Dell today quietly revealed the existence of the SP2309W. A higher-end counterpart to the S2309W, the new 23-inch display carries a new, sharper 2048x1152 panel that provides the same 16:9 aspect ratio but more usable screen area than a typical 16:10 LCD. It also shares the SP series' addition of a webcam and carries a two-megapixel unit for video chat without the add-on needed for the simpler screen.

The SP2309W generates a typical 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 300cd/m2 brightness but gets a claimed 2ms average pixel response time and 98 percent NTSC color gamut coverage. Dell also gives the screen more video input options with HDMI added to the lesser models' DVI and VGA ports.

Showing so far only through a Canadian product page, the new offering is listed at $420 CDN ($353 US). Shipping reportedly begins within one to two weeks, though without a formal announcement it's unclear how accurately the estimate represents availability elsewhere. [via Engadget]

    What's So Special?

    I have several monitors that exceed the 1920x1080 pixel dimension, and have for years. None of them were this cheap, but why the inferred surprise at a higher-than-HD resolution? Is it the 23"?
