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.

Its 1080p with a few pixels padded on for productivity reasons. I dont see why 16:10 is a junk ratio/resolution.

Mostly because for a computer monitor at that size it would be nice to have something at a higher resolution then 1920x1200.


Something along the lines of the 30" res.

He said nothing of aspect ratio, hes complaining quite rightly about the resolution. This is the same resolution as the 24" panels use. You can buy 15" laptops with this resolution if you want. Thats crap.

27" demands a higher resolution damnit ! :)

Actually, only reason I have not bought >20inch yet are those bogus resolutions you are asking for.

.303 dot pitch is proven to be the sweet spot from ergonomics point of view.

We have only one pair of eyes for thi lifetime...

There are six billion people on the planet...and each of them has a different pair of eyes. I have a Dell 2405 now, and I plan to upgrade when this panel becomes available.

At least as far DPI, this vs. a 23" or 24" panel would be similar to the difference between the more common 19" and 17" 5:4 LCDs that have 1280x1024 resolutions, and both of those seem to have their place in the market.

The 17" notebook LCDs that come in 1920x1200, I personally find to be borderline-unusable (in the neighborhood of 130 DPI), and I know a lot of adults who struggle with even 100 DPI using standard-size fonts.

As long as this means the price on 24" panels will come down, I see it as good news.
