Dell Introduces Two New Displays with Wide Viewing Angle and Brilliant Colours

Dell today announced the availability of the UltraSharp U2211H and U2311H flat panel monitors with in-plane switching technology (IPS) to deliver consistent colours across wide viewing angles for growing businesses, knowledge workers and photography buffs who need superior colour reproduction in their work or leisure activities.

These new displays are part of Dell’s premium UltraSharp Display Series and are available in Australia and New Zealand from today at value-driven prices starting from US $279 for the U2211H, and $299 for the U2311H.

The Dell UltraSharp U2211H, with its 21.5-inch display and the U2311H with a 23-inch display come in full HD and leverage IPS technology that provides brilliant screen resolution, high dynamic contrast ratio and amazing, vivid and consistent colour consistency with minimal colour deviation from virtually any angle.

For larger organisations needing an extra layer of control, multiple displays can be remotely managed by IT administrators, through Dell Client ManagerTM software when used with Dell computers on a Dell network. These new displays also comply with some of the latest energy-efficiency standards, including ENERGY STAR 5.0 and TCO 5.0. Additionally, the monitor's EPEAT Silver rating ensures alignment with some of the highest environmental standards for public and private sector use.

“These new Dell displays are ideal for knowledge workers such as financial analysts, programmers and photography enthusiasts,” said Robert Vinokurov, Director, Dell’s Software and Peripherals Division for Large Enterprise and Public Sector customers, APJ. “They will all appreciate the crisp and distortion free images, the connectivity and ergonomic features and the quick response time of 8ms which ensures that fast-moving multimedia content is displayed accurately”.

The Dell U2211H and U2311H include a number of ergonomic design features for prolonged usage, such as a height adjustable screen that can tilt and swivel to accommodate user preferences. Both displays can also easily pivot to the landscape or portrait orientations, allowing users to view long documents without scrolling excessively. The display also makes it easier and more affordable for customers to multitask by positioning multiple applications or Web pages next to each other without losing content. It also reduces the need to scroll within large documents and toggle between application windows.

Other features include multiple connectivity options such as DisplayPort, DVI-D (HDCP), 4X USB 2.0 and VGA connector for compatibility with legacy devices. This wide range of connectivity allows the monitor to be hooked up to multiple computers and devices.

Technical specifications of the new Dell UltraSharp U2211H and U2311H include:

Where's the catch? They seem kind of cheap for a IPS Dell... I'm also curious how a 8ms IPS panel fares in games/video...
At 299$, the 23" one seems a steal.

I have no issues with my 30" IPS Dell, which is also 8ms.
The price is very good. For ~$900 you can get three for 5760x1080 eyefinity goodness.

This seems to good to be true. I'll try to contact Dell in Romania to check availability for these models and maybe other budget H/IPS monitors. I remember paying a year ago for my Fujitsu-Siemens 23" TN a little more than 300$... hope I can sell it to someone who has no idea about panel types... and go for a IPS.

The only downside I can see is that they aren't very easy on the eyes...

So, when can we expect a TPU review of both of these? ;) :respect:

Great everything, except no LED-backlighting. Why, Dell, WHY?!? :( Looks like the G2410H is going to be the one for me, even if it has the inferior TN panel.

Only the 3008 is actually 8ms. And beleive me, I can tell the difference. Your monitor is 11 ms (grey-to-grey)/14 ms (black-to-black). I know reviewer's said differently when the monitor first came out, but they were very wrong.

http://www.dell.com/content/topics/topic.aspx/global/products/monitors/topics/en/monitor_3007wfp?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~section=specs

I have both the 3007, and the 3008, and these monitors should be successors to the 3008, not the 3007. The 3008 is FANTASTIC, and has NO INPUT LAG, and in fact, seems much faster then the 3007, again, contrary to all the reviews out there. I couldn't beleive it...then I checked actual specs, rather than reviews. If you think your 3007 is fast, you LOVE one of these. These newer panels have much better color ranges than the 3007 too.

I'll be replacing my 3xP2310H with 3x U2311H, ASAP. Already put the order in with my sales agent.

Why would you grab an inferior panel because of a difference in backlighting? These monitors are still going to look better than the LED tn monitors. All that matters is the end results, not how they are achieved.

I am so glad to see the prices of IPS panels dropping

A lot of these e-IPS panels have uniformity issues (larger Dell, HP and NEC 23" 1080p IPS), which leads to 'tinting' where one side of the screen is colored differently than the other side. Of course that's just luck of the draw, and the same thing can happen with other inexpensive screens. Dell has a pretty good return policy, so you can always exchange it if you have issues. Also, there is quite a bit of IPS glow, now that the polarizing filters are not used. Other than that, IPS goodness for a low price.

Because the monitors I use are on more than 8 hours a day and electricity costs a fortune here in the Caribbean. I've already swapped the PC's to low-power versions, all that's left now are the monitors.

So sacrificing image quality for power savings, in other words?

You are a stronger willed person than me, I wouldn't sacrifice image quality to save power.

if anyone wants to save power on a Display, just turn the Unit off when you are leaving.

My older samsung 204b takes 20w and to be fair you cannot complain about that.. Don't know how much IP panels use though.

The panel itself consumes little power, 99% of the power goes to backlighting and electronics.
