I love the non-business-types post about a business class monitor, and how it's wrong. ;)

I'm in for at least one. To me, that's a decent price for LED/IPS.

not to mention a 1920x1200 LED IPS panel is very rare

I heard LED isn't as good as CCFL for even backlighting and that affects the quality of the image... I wonder if that makes it counter-productive, the screen being an IPS?

If they want "business class" then they should go for QXGA (2048×1536). This is do-able through DVI, and has much more "y" for reading pdfs etc. in the business environment. We love 4:3; only Hollywood worshipers like HD 16:9 formats. Watching video on the "business workstation" is not just out of scope but also naff.

I can never complain about another 1920x1200 monitor entering the market but...D-Sub? Why can't that die on modern LCD screens? Come on, what computer these days doesn't at least ship with a DVI-I port? And D-Sub analog signals look like crap on digital displays.

If my Samsung T240 dies, I'd definitely be interested in it though. It would be a cold day in hell when I buy a 1920x1080 computer monitor.


...and IPS even. :D
Our laptop has a D port although it does have a HDMI too lol. And another system in our house has only a D port lol.

Not everyone can keep up to date as much as some people all so maybe some one has a system with only a D port on it and cannot afford a whole system all at once which they might buy the monitor 1st.

Anyways glad the matt look is comming back as i am totally sick of this glossy crap.

servers, no server I've had come past my desk have anything other than a dsub connection. Granted this monitor is more for worstations, but being that dell's server market is a big deal, they won't be ditching dsub any time soon.

I was lucky enough to pick up a used dell ultrasharp 30 inch 2560x1600 for 500 bucks, the guy wanted a mac. If this thing died on me today I would not eat because I would have to buy a new one. Its awesome. Ya response time is a little slow but it's worth it. Although you do need a decent vid card to run games at that res. My 5870 does a very admirable job at it.
