The Dell 1907FP Display
Low response times, but no more Super IPS panels?

Dell, the undisputed LCD vendor for the US, took an unusual step backwards today by announcing the 8ms UltraSharp 17" 1707FP and UltraSharp 19" 1907FP LCD displays.  The displays both use 6-bit LCD panels capable of 262,000 colors per pixel with an 8ms gray to gray response time. 

Dell has been a large proponent of 8-bit Super IPS LCD panels in the past, but the move to 6-bit panels for the 1707FP and the 1907FP is not completely unusual.  Typically, Dell will use different components for different regions -- so the UltraSharp 1907FP in Europe may be completely different than the UltraSharp 1907FP in the US.

Both displays come with a native resolution of 1280x1024 and 500:1 contrast ratios.  Representatives from Dell Europe claim the price of the 1707FP and 1907FP will be £199 and £299, respectively.

Dell is expected to announce the UltraSharp 2007FPW and UltraSharp 2407FPW widescreen displays on the 24th of this month. The 30" 3007FPW was announced early this year.

I believe they are currently 8 Bit panels.

I have tried using a 6-Bit panel before (the samsung 712N) and I just couldn't stand the lower color quality when looking at pictures and it was even noticeable in games like CS:Source! After that, I knew that wouldn't touch ever touch a 6-bit panel again. 8-Bit for the win! (2005 FPW, 2001FP, 1905FP are all 8-bit panels).

I think the easiest way to tell them apart from specs is if they advertise 16.2 million colors rather than 16.7 (I don't now how they get 16.2 million from 262,000 colors per pixel, but I heard it has to do some color blending).
