Dell G2410  (Source: Dell)
Dell G2410 is aimed at multimedia enthusiasts looking for 1080p resolution

When it’s time to work on a PC or watch movies, a larger screen allows you to be more productive and makes movies more enjoyable. Dell makes a number of branded PC displays that support HD resolutions and the computer maker has announced a new large display that integrates energy saving features.

The display is called the Dell G2410 and has a 24-inch screen. Typically, a 24-inch PC monitor has a resolution of 1920 x 1200, but the new Dell unit has a 1920 x 1080 resolution. That means that gamers can’t get the highest resolution available in the size class, but movie fans can get full 1080p content.

Dell lists the response time of the panel at 5ms, which should provide for good gaming and movie watching performance. Integrated power saving features include Power Nap and Dynamic Dimming. It's easy enough to guess what these features do, which is all we can do since Dell didn't specify what exactly the features do.

Connectivity options include DVI-D and VGA, but HDMI is missing. On a display aimed at multimedia use the lack of HDMI may be an issue for some users. The screen has a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a brightness of 250cd/m2. The monitor is capable of displaying 16.7 million colors and has viewing angles of 160 degrees vertical and 170 degrees horizontal.

Perhaps a reason Dell opted to include only basic connectivity options was to get the price to a more reasonable level. The G2410 retails for $349 and is available now.

Your going to cater a monitor to the 1080p crowd and not provide an HDMI port. Is Dell now government owned? Because that is just stupid.

And BTW a couple of weeks ago I picked up a Viewsonic 28" from for $400 w/free shipping. It's bigger, has better colors, faster response, and oh yeah a HDMI port.(plus no bad pixels)

DVI and HDMI are interchangeable. And also considering the fact that this monitor HAS NO AUDIO, it doesn't really make sense to have it. Besides, DVI to HDMI adapters are like $5 online after shipping.

One thing I was liking was that because its 16:9, you get more glass because TV screens are 16:9, and its LED backlit (I wonder why its not stated in this article) and only $350. Not bad.

Pretty much any modern LCD monitor built in say the last 3 years has HDCP over DVI. HDCP is absolutely not exclusive to HDMI connections.

OK... so I'm reading that DVI-D will do HDCP... that's awesome. Getting an HDMI-to-DVI adapter would do the trick for the blu-ray player.

Nice screen. Still, it's too bad they didn't leave it at 1200 vert. res

You can also just get DVI to HDMI cables at monoprice cheap. Either way works fine.

Neither does the MONITOR! My God, you didn't even read the second sentence?

DVI-D is the standard for carrying video signals within HDMI. HDMI can also carry audio signals along with video. What is point of feeding the full HDMI (video+audio) signal to this monitor when it doesn't have any speakers to output the audio? It should be obvious now why Dell correctly designed in the DVI-D port.

I doubt this is LED backlit. Those are still to expensive. The Viewsonic 22" LED is still over $600 :(
