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.

actually i WANT a monitor that is just around 1080p resolution. any moreso is basically useless to me. at 1920x1200 you can run just about any game with one video card at maximum settings (if you go 7900GT or better). and 1080p content on this will be around 26" in size, which is perfect for my bedroom.

but, i just hope this brings the price of the 2407 down a bit. because that is what i really want.

Is that because you ONLY use your PC for gaming and movies from the comfort of your bedroom?

If you are interested in photography and use photoshop, or if you read a lot using the PC, then you will find a higher resolution screen really helps.

Try going to display/settings/advanced and set DPT to 120. Then turn on clear type. And you'll get the idea...

you are correct. my PC is an entertainment tool more than a productivity tool. the thing that frightens me most about getting a 2405/7 or higher is the fact that I would have to upgrade my video card substantially to get the same framerates I get now.

And substantially more than you would have imagined, I suspect.
