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.

Who cares about resolution?

What they need to do is start making better technology. I don't care if the resolution is 1080p, 1200p or whatever it is. What I WANT to see is better color accuracy at same cost value. They just added WCG-CCCFL's tot heir 30 inch dislay, why aren't they doing this to other monitors? The cost difference is relatively very little difference and the color gamut goes up 20%+ which makes a far more impressive visual update then simple resolution upgrades. Or what about faster progression pixel technology so there is no ghosting at all because it tricks your eyes? Come on people...

Looking at Samsung's spec sheet, it looks like its going to need dual DVI inputs (just as the 30" does) I run crossfire (with the dongle) so I dont think I can use this. Dell's 24" only needs one so I guess thats what I will go with early next year.

I haven't looked at the spec's but just to reply to your post; if anything it will need a single dual-link DVI connection, not dual (two) DVI ports. There is a big difference.

What you are referring two is Dual Link DVI, which is supported by all modern video cards, not two DVI cables. Dual link DVI uses only one cable.

lets not confuse them now

What you are referring to is Dual Link DVI, which is supported by all modern video cards, not two DVI cables. Dual link DVI uses only one cable.

And most video cards only have 1 Dual-link dvi, even if there are 2 DVI, one is single-link only. All of the Avivo cards from ATI support 2 Dual-link, and I think most 7900s do, but 7800s and lower do NOT.

Thanks to both for the clarification. One other small oddity is I cannot seem to get the viewable area measurements (WxH) of the 24" or the 27" Seems the specs are referring to overall dimensions (including bezel) I'd like to know if the 24" (at a minimum) is more than 12" vertical viewable height, and the 27's as well...

Yes, a 2405FPW is approximately 12.8" (h) x 20.4" (w) viewable screen space.
