Dell Leaks 27" Display on Website

Dell's upcoming 27" display as leaked on the Dell.com website
An inconspicuous typo reveals one of the most anticipated Dell displays to date
Earlier this year Dell was
expected to release a 27" enthusiast display
even though no manufacturer had announced plans to build on 27" LCD substrates. However, with
Samsung's announcement earlier this month
, it looks as though Dell's 27" plans are finally a go.
Yet late last week, the product page for the
was updated with a "new" image of the product. Much to the confusion of enthusiasts everywhere, this was not the image for the 20" Dell display announced last year, but the image of a 27" display that has not been announced yet.
In a conversation to
, a Dell representative explained that the image came from a training manual for the upcoming W2707C display. This was later
confirmed by a forum post from a Dell employee
on the same day. As far as Dell displays go, the "C" suffix denotes a consumer LCD TV. Dell's
, for example, is a 26" LCD TV.
Typically Dell announces its new displays and roadmaps at the Consumer Electronics Show: the 3007WFP, 2407WFP and 2007WFP were all highlights of CES 2006. CES 2007 is scheduled to take place the second week of January.
Interestingly, Dell's other LCD TV models do not have USB inputs, even though those inputs are clearly visible in the leaked image. The Samsung
claim a 1920x1200 resolution, which is a resolution typically reserved for desktop displays rather than LCD TVs. Furthermore, this display lacks a coaxial input -- something most other Dell LCD TVs have. Given just the specifications and ignoring Dell's comments, we would be apt to say this is a desktop display rather than a consumer LCD TV.
Whether or not the Dell representatives have misspoke seems moot: we will have a 27" high end display for 2007, and it will most certainly be introduced at CES next week.

Is it just me, or is that "component connector" actually a SVideo can? And the "composite connector" looks more look component input also.

Yep I agree. It looks like the component is in the lower left corner, and then the composite is in the same cutout. The S-Video is where the 6 is.
Hope someone is rewriting the training manual!!?

You're ALMOST right.
The YELLOW is COMPOSITE (all luminance and chrominance on one signal lead). That is the one in the bottom left of the cutout.
The red, green, blue are COMPONENT ie made up of different colour parts where keeping them separate improves quality.
Don't mix them up!
And yes, the other connector is s-video AKA Y/C.
I don't want an analogue tuner in my screen, thanks. For uk use it means you need a tv license and pay extra import duty. Having composite and Y/C adds flexibility without the disadvantages of an inbuilt tuner. UK is fast moving to digital terrestrial so an analogue tuner will still be no use. Also digital tuners currently standard def are no use for high def digital terrestrial. Therefore having the dvd player, satellite/cable box or off air receiver/tuner OUTSIDE the screen is definitely the way to go.
Until now there have been few choices: flat TV with tuner and lame resolution. OR monitor with good res but inflexible inputs. In my view Dell has the right compromise here.
