Dell's New Trio of Widescreen LCD Monitors

Dell ST2310It seems that it is becoming a normal thing with Dell to create a new product, put it out in stores and to not have their press team say anything at all. Dell has just put out a new trio of widescreen LCD monitors that appear to be out on the market now. The trio is composed of the Dell ST2310, Dell E2210H and the Dell E2010H.

The Dell ST2310 has a sleek widescreen panel with a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution. The ST2310 has a 23" panel size with a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio and a Dynamic 50,000:1 contrast ratio. The monitor has a 5ms response time and supports 16.7 million colors a 0.266 mm pixel pitch. An optimal resolution of 1920x1080 at 60Hz with a 160 vertical/160 horizontal viewing angle and 250 cd/m2 brightness make this monitor particularly nice to look at. The ST2310 has narrow bezels and a curved rear for optimal viewing. This monitor also comes equipped with DVI-D/VGA/HDMI inputs as well as audio in/out. The ST2310 is the most expensive in the trio coming in at around $230.

The next monitor in the lineup is the Dell E2210H. The E2210H is a 21.5" monitor with a widescreen (16.9) aspect ratio. It has a Twisted Nematic panel type. It has an optimal resolution of 1920 x 1080 with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 160 vertical/170 horizontal viewing angles. There is a 5ms response time as well as color support for 16.7 million colors with a 0.248 pixel pitch and 250 cd/m2 brightness. The E2210H comes with VGA/DVI-D inputs as well as audio in/out. The smaller E2210H is going to run you about $200.

The final monitor in Dell's new trio is the Dell E2010H. The E2010H is a 20" monitor with a widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio. Like the E2210H it also has a TN-Twisted Nematic panel type. The optimal resolution comes in at 1600 x 900 at 60Hz with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The E2010H has a 160 vertical/170 horizontal viewing angle with color support for 16.7 million colors as well as a 0.277 mm pixel pitch, a 250 cd/m2 brightness and a 5ms response time. Like the E2210H, the E2010H comes with VGA/DVI-D inputs and audio in/out. The E2010H is the cheapest monitor in the trio coming in at around $140.

This new trio from Dell delivers good visuals and doesn't break the bank. All three monitors are Energy Star certified and received EPEAT Silver. However, the E2210H and the E2010H are both Halogen-Reduced. If you need a decent monitor for a decent price then you should definitely check out this new trio from Dell. Although it does make you wonder how Dell hopes to sell many of these monitors without telling the public about them.
