Samsung will provide the panels and will launch its own displays alongside

Samsung Electronics said that it has signed a long-term contract to provide Dell with 27-inch LCD panels, according to DigiTimes’ reading of a Korean publication. Both companies will launch 27-inch panels in 2007, and the panels can also be used as televisions.

 

Samsung’s projected specifications for its upcoming 27-inch panel features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 and a response time of 8 ms grey-to-grey. See the full specs here.

 

Dell last month introduced a 20.1-inch widescreen LCD for $289. Samsung has also been making strides in other display technologies, as it recently revealed the world’s thinnest mobile LCD screen and just before that a 12mm thick AMOLED display.

Prices will take awhile to go down on the 2407's. A 27" 1920x1200 display sounds like the sweet spot. Current 30" LCD monitors are too expensive and the native resolutions are so high you need a top end GPU or SLI to play games on them. A 27" 1920x1200 would be perfect, not to big and the native resolution is not so ridicously high that you don't need a high end GPU just to play modern games.

I wonder how much $$$$ for this 27"? I would estimate around $1,000 for the dell and after awhile with coupon codes maybe $800-900.

I agree, 27" will be a nice spot, though my boys 27" TV was a bit ridiculous for computer work unless you were sitting some 4 feet away. I can forsee a large amout of "bedwork" being done. You can lay down and surf and work in the nice confines of your bed! MMmmm, toasty!

My bad, I meant that it wasn't that great due to the fact that it was 1366 x 768 or whatever that res is..

TV resolution is close to VGA -- 640x480.

1366 x 768 is very common resolution for 720p capable LCDs.

I have one of the apple 30" lcd monitors. While the native 2560x1600 resolution requires a high end video card, many games play fine on 1/2 resolution or 1280x800. I wouldn't use the "fast video card" requirement as a must for game playing.

This is true. I also read that the dell's 30inch also supports more then 1 native resolution, which is also 1280x800 just like the apple's 30 inch.

So long as a monitor has good scale processing, any non-native resolution can look just fine. Usually, anything that moves looks fine, it's text and static images that usually scale poorly. I really like 1920x1200, it's perfect for HD-content and just about any upper-midrange to high-end graphics card can run most games at that res with all eye candy. My laptop has a 17" 1920x1200 display and I love everything about it.

the 30" is known to scale down better than other screens, and the 2560x1600 resolution is so large, it can scale down to 1280x800 and retain a perfect 4 to 1 pixel ratio with no need for interpolation.

So in a sense, the 30" Dell is actually more versatile for gaming than a smaller screen in terms of producing an ideal high IQ.

However response time is isn't the greatest on the large screen, so there is still that trade off.
