Dell 22-inch LCD
Dell today made a preliminary launch of its new E228WFP display. Listed early on the Dell Australia and Japan websites, the 22-inch screen is the first of its size from the company and is aimed directly at cost-conscious users: input focuses solely on DVI with HDCP encryption support as well as a VGA port, with no USB hubs or TV connections as found on some of Dell's other models. The E228 delivers performance suitable to gaming, Dell says: as with the latest 22-inch panels, Dell's iteration is capable of a 5ms gray-to-gray response time and an 800:1 contrast ratio. The display sells in Australia today for the equivalent of $547 US but has not yet been announced for North America.
