The Dell 2707WFP is a go

Our sources at Samsung LCD whispered to us a few weeks ago that Dell will feature a 27" LCD this fall with a 1920x1200 resolution. 

We got confirmation of this rumor earlier today from former Tom's Hardware editor Vincent Alzieu that Dell has also confirmed the upcoming display to him.  In a recent conversation, Alzieu claimed "the 2707WFP will be here in October."  Of course, he was talking about France in particular, and a US launch may be even closer.   You can find the rest of his thoughts about the upcoming display on his website, BeHardware.com

Samsung LCD is currently the only display manufacturer with plans for a 27" WUXGA LCD panel, the LTM270M1.  The S-PVA panel is a true 8-bit design with a claimed response time of 8ms gray to gray.  For all intents and purposes, the display is identical to the Dell 2407WFP now available via the Dell USA website -- Samsung makes the 24" WUXGA panel found in that display as well. However, the 27" panel has a less dense 0.303mm pixel pitch which is not the most attractive pixel width we've seen.

I'm sure that depends on your eyesight and/or age. For me, running 1600x1200 on my 20" gives features that are too large - I prefer 2048x1536 at that resolution. But my dad, who actually has eyesight that is not too bad, can't read my monitor at 1600x1200.

I don't even bother to show him my 15" 1600x1200 laptop!

30" is way too pricey.

the 27" might not be that much cheaper.


CHEAPER PRICES DELL!!

Just wait for a deal. Sure, the 30" is expensive, but it was down to $1400ish USD on a deal a couple of months ago. For that resolution packed into that kind of real estate, I fail to see how that's too expensive. I may not be able to afford it, but I also don't need it.

I know resolution is in the eye of the beholder.... I like that everything is tiny on my laptop, but my parents and girlfriend can't read it/complain respectively.

I just thought saying it wasn't the "most attractive pixel width" was a humorously subjective thing to say, especially since it doesn't really even say whether the author thought that pixel pitch was too high or too low.

FWIW a 1920x1200 15.4 inch laptop has smaller pixel pitch than ay other I'm aware of:
15.4 1920x1200: 0.173mm
15 1600x1200: 0.191mm
14.1 1600x1200: 0.179mm

15 1024x768: 0.298mm

(which is the closest notebook pixel pitch to the aforementioned dell 27 incher)

what about the VGA screens found on PocketPCs? Those surely have the smallest picel pitch available now...
