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.

Does DVI do HDCP??? Cuz if not, then they are not interchangable. Not to mention the fact that HD players will dumb-down the resolution to 480p if the HDMI handshake isn't there.

And yes, I realize that HDCP is not usually switched on, but if I was spending $400, I'd sure as hell want it to work if it was turned on later.

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.
