Last month Dell launched four new monitors in Asia. Today, it is bringing those four monitors, along with four more, to American shores that are sure to please nearly everyone in the market for a new monitor. Each one of the eight features LED backlighting and will launch in the Studio or commercial entry series of displays. The Studio models include the ST2220, the ST2220L, the ST2320, ST2320L, ST2321L, and ST2420L. The first two are 22 inch models, the next three are 23 inch, while the last is 24 inches. All feature a 1920x1080 resolution, 5ms response times, between 7,000,000 and 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios, and the usual 16:9 aspect ratio. All also include touch panel controls on the lower right of the bezel. The ST220 and ST2320 feature VGA and DVI ports, while the models ending in 'L' also include HDMI. For the entry level models you will find IN2020 and IN2020M, both 20 inch models. Each have a 1600x900 resolution, 5ms response times, and an 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The IN2020 just has a VGA port while the 'M' model includes DVI. All eight monitors feature Energy Star 5.0 compliance.
The IN2020M, ST2020, ST2020L, ST2320L, and ST2420L are available now directly from Dell with the others following shortly. The IN2020M starts at $159.99, ST2020 at $189.99, ST2020L at $199.99, ST2320L at $229.99, and the ST2420L at $259.99. Dell also makes mention of a new, touch panel monitor boasting a 21.5 inch size and an IPS panel. That one has piqued my interest and we will know more about it later this fall.
