Dell Introduces 24-inch 2407WFP-HC LCD Monitor

Dell has updated its 24-inch 2407WFP widescreen monitor with the introduction of the 2407WFP-HC LCD model. The new 2407WFP-HC features Dell's TrueColor technology, 1920x1200 (WUXGA) resolution, 6ms response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 image brightness, 178°/178° viewing angle and a new W-CCFL (wide cold-cathode florescent lighting) backlight. Although, the specs and features appear to remain unchanged the updated 2407WFP-HC LCD panel now covers 92% of the NTSC color gamut, just like the 3007WFP-HC big brother. Orders of the new Dell 2407WFP-HC start tommorow in Japan with a MSRP of ¥108,000 or around USD $875.

Actually Easy, it shouldnt really look that bad. Dell is renowned from reproducing deep, dark lasting blacks and nice grays and whites. Even at 1000:1, it should look great as it truly supports full 1080p HD content. I didnt see them mention HDCP compliance, but its not really a biggy when your native resolution displays all movies and games in such lustrous brilliance :)

Dell panels are always slick, but their stands are getting a bit tacky.

I don't understand the need for these gigantic monitors. My 15" CRT suits me just fine.

You obviously have never gamed on a 30" LCD at 2560x1600 resolution before ;). It is quite something else!

And this is too expensive for a 24" LCD. Most can be had for roughly $600. And no the typical human eyes cannot differentiate between 6ms and 12ms.

You're obviously not on the same sarcasm-planet. Hat was pretty obvious I think ;-P

Maybe Hat could have been more obvious with a 13" CRT, like the old server monitors.

NO I was being serious. Look in my specs, it's a PHILIPS 105S6 15" CRT

Solitaire probably does look pretty good on a 15 incher.

Actually 21 inch LCDs reach up to 1680x1050 and 22 inch LCDs up to 1600x1200....
I think that a 24 inch LCD monitor is the best for Gaming....30 inch are ok too but not for me....I even tried my 55 inch LCD but that was overkill :P

Ok wait, is the only difference between the 2407WFP and the 2407WFP-HC, the 93% color gamut?
Well, cant u just adjust the colors on the 2407WFP after u buy it to match the 2407WFP-HC?

Its kind of dissapointing though. The 3007WFP-HC has an improved response time (11ms to 8ms). The 2407WFP-HC still has a 6ms response time.

That's what I thought when I first got my 20" WS - no way I'd need anything bigger. I actually thought it was too big coming from a 17" TFT. Six months down the line I found myself limited by the space and upgraded to the 24" Dell. Again it felt too big at first, but when I tried gaming / movies at this resolution and navigating the desktop with all the real-estate, I just fell in love.

I actually think the 24" model stand is one of the nicest in the industry - one of the reasons I bought it. In general I'm a big fan of the minimalist design, great to see a manufacturer that's not afraid of loosing those useless speakers!

You could use that as a joke around some IT people.... guaranteed to get a laugh :-)

No, you couldn't. A lot of the monitor's ability to reproduce colors, has to do with the backlight used.

The majority of the 24inch LCDs that DELL makes use SAMSUNG panels so their quality is quite awesome when it comes to colour reproduction :)

That Solitaire is probably the extent of your gaming. :D

I need more real estate than a 15". That's just shameful.


Also, death to monitor speakers!
