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,

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.

Here's an estimation:

Dell 24 inch widescreen (when on sale): $750
Dell 30 inch widescreen (lowest I've seen outside crazy canada deals): $1999

Reasonable price for 27 inch given above: $1400
That's my guess.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it at $1099 honestly. Marginal increments of inches keep getting more expensive, so the difference between 27" and 30" will be the most expensive. Also it won't be long before the 30" hits $1500 in the US.

hehehe I like how you said, crazy canada sale. hahaha I live in Canada, and those 12 days sales rocks! Especially rocks my cc bills.

I bet those can be had for like 1200 cdn when it's on sale considering 30'' was only 1500, but then again, tax in canada can be a b!+ch (15% in Ontario)

Should be less than $1400, since the resolution is not any higher than the 24" display. I'm really hoping this will be around $1000. I've been waiting for a large LCD monitor with larger pixels and was giving up hope.
