Panel Size: 23" Optimal Resolution: Higher than FULL HD 2048 X 1152 at 60 Hz Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 80,000:1 (max) Brightness: 300 cd/m2 (typical) Response Time: 2 ms (typical) Viewing Angle: 160° / 170° (typical) Color Support: 16.7 million colors Pixel Pitch: 0.249mm ---- I'm looking for a cost-effective alternative to the Apple 24" Cinema Display, and this Dell appears to fit the bill. I have a few questions, though, so any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated... - What are the real-life viewing angles on this display (I don't trust Dell's specs)? Are all TN panels made the same? I can't seem to find a VA panel display for <$500 CAD. - Will the nVidia 9400M (Alu MB) drive this display at its native resolution? - Does the 80,000:1 DCR actually mean anything, or is this yet another embellished/made-up spec? - Would YOU buy it? Any other suggestions? The monitor will be used for regular computing, HD movies, and light photo-editing. I prefer a glossy display and the Dell 2408 is out of my price range. Thanks for the help.
