dell-2408wfp-with-portts Dell have finally released the new 2408WFP Monitor in the US for a reasonable price of $748. Now this is not really the monitor I would want as I would much prefer the 30″ 3008WFP Monitor which the larger version of this 2408WFP. I suppose this one will have to do for now, so what you get with this monitor?

  • 1,900 x 1,200 resolution
  • 178-degree viewing angle
  • 1,300:1 contrast ratio
  • 400 cd/m2 brightness
  • 6-ms response
  • 102% color gamut
  • HDMI
  • 2x DVI
  • DisplayPort
  • VGA
  • Composite
  • S-Video
  • Component
  • A single USB upstream
  • 2x USB downstream

Obviously the main thing to note here is the use of DisplayPort. DisplayPort s intended to help solve the problem of displays sucking up too much electricity and should benefit the next generation of displays. DisplayPort can also be used to make internal connections, eliminating the need to translate signals from one format to another.

Unfortunately no graphics cards currently support DisplayPort but they are due out this year. No word on UK availability or pricing!
