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.

sorry for the pun but I have been meaning to go into a dual display setup and these 27'' beauties look perfect for the job. they will have to be hdcp compliant of course.

i have the 2405 and it has been the single greatest computer upgrade i have ever purchased. just thinking about having more than twice the screen-estate makes my mouse drool.

They're perfect for the job if you've got a *very* large desk.
And you don't mind your two monitors being different sizes.

This makes a nice television, but I really don't think 27" is helpful for a desktop monitor, especially with the same resolution as 22" panels (or 15.4" laptops) from a couple of years ago. I bet it won't be as cheap as a 22" WUXGA would have been, either.

Bring back 22" WUXGA. I was cross enough about the 25.5" screens...

Ditto that - for a computer monitor, especially a dual-monitor setup, that is a great size and resolution.

What happened to 22s"? I got one of the black friday 22" specials from BB and I love it. A friend has a 24" and it makes my eyes wander too much.

I want to get another one to replace a 26" tv so please don't say they've stopped producing 22" panels.

There are still many 22" widescreen monitors in the Asian market. Several newer models were introduced this month in Korea, for example. They're priced around $300. I hope to see them in the N. American market soon.

The 22" you got is WSXGA+ (1680x1050). They are talking about ones they used to have that were WUXGA (1920x1200). It's really too bad they've pretty much stopped making high resolution displays, for both desktops and laptops.

I didn't actually know there used to be WUXGA 22" LCD's. Sounds pretty sweet.
