True HD computer displays have become increasingly popular for the past year. Now Dell knows that and has released S2409W, Dell's first 24-inch 16:9 widescreen display. The 16:9 aspect ratio brings along 1920x1080 Full HD display resolution, 5ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 160° / 170° degree viewing angles. At the back you'll find a VGA, DVI and HDMI connectors. The 24-inch Dell S2409W is available now directly from Dell for just $379. Once you order it, it will be at your front door in two days time. More info is available here.

Nice, but it's not like Dell's 16:10 Monitors had problems displaying a 16:9 picture without stretching. You just get two small bars on top and bottom.

Even with 16:9 you will have black bars with blurays I guess, because they're cinema screen ration which is uh... 1,8:1? Or 2,35:1?


But still nice :)

16:9 is bollocks for PC displays, how much scrolling do you want to do?
Sure, it's a high resolution display, but this is a move that has nothing to do with 16:9 being better than 16:10, it's all about the panel makers beeing penny pinchers. They can cut more 16:9 panels out of a substrate than 16:10 panels and the only loser is the consumers that are being forced to use a display format no-one has asked for.
I'll be getting a 24in 16:10 panel before they go out of fashion, 16:9 is great for a TV, as it doesn't really matter too much in that case, but when you work on a PC, you want more space on the desktop, not less. :shadedshu

at 24 inches, wouldn't this have the same height as say, a 21" 16:10? I think there's enough room. On top of that, wider angles means better gameplay in first person shooters like cod4 or css (for me anyway lol)

160° / 170° degree viewing angles.

No thanks. If I'm paying for a 24", at least give me standard PVA until Iiyama releases the next generation of TN film.

16:10 exists for a very specific reason. It allows for two full standard size (A4) pages to be displayed side-by-side. 16:9 is great cuz you can watch widescreen movies without letterbox... oh what's that? Now they use an ever wider format meaning there's still letterboxing even after I dropped all this cash on this fancy TV???

Thanks for the post. At first I felt kinda bad since I have the 1920x1200, but then I realized, I have more resolution, and there ARE black bars anyway since many movies are wider than 16x9. Dell monitors FTW!
