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.

There's only one reason for this. Low cost. 1080i panels are so common since they are used in plenty of LCD TV's. I'm sure the break they get in the panel is directly translated into the lower price. Other than that, it should be quite similar in features than thier other 24" display.

Panels are progressive by design. Even if you
feed them a 1080i signal they will always de-interlace
into a progressive picture.

Not true. For the most part true, but there are exceptions. THere is nothing written in stone that says a monitor has to refesh all the lines at once. Hitachi ALiS was one such example. It only refreshed half the lines on each turn.

What I meant was 1920 x 1080 panels. Since that is the predominate resolution manufactured now, the LCD glass is cheaper.

Didn't mean to start an interlaced vs progressive debate.

there's 24" 1920x1080 tvs on the market? that seems like a pointlessly high resolution for something used as a tv...
