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.

Likem big pixels

Bigger pixel sizes!!! Woohoo!

I'm one of those who complains when the pixel size is too small. I was given a 17" LCD at work, but found it very uncomfortable to use. The 24" Dell has a better pixel size of 0.27 mm, but 0.3 is the sweet spot, at least for me.

Pixel size SHOULD be very very small. It makes for much clearer reading.

The problem you have with the 17inch is with your screen setup. You must activate a higher DPI (dots per inch) for your display.

Go display/settings/advanced/DPI=120 (and not 96). Also change effects to LARGE icons, and CLEARTYPE.

There you go...
