Dell E2009W and E2209W
Not finished with its LCD introductions from earlier in the week, Dell today introduced two more screens that are this time aimed at business users. The 20-inch E2009W and its slightly larger companion the 22-inch E2209W shed the rounded look of recent displays for a squared design that includes an iMac-style hanging display stand and controls blended subtly into the corner rather than conspicuous buttons.
Either screen is functionally identical to the other with a 1680x1050 resolution, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 300cd/m2 brightness and a 5ms pixel response time. Both also have DVI ports with HDCP encryption along with a VGA connection for an analog fallback.
The pricing for Dell's two new displays is close and sees an E2009W cost $249 where the larger E2209W costs only slightly more at $279. Either is available today with the option of a chin-mounted speaker bar.
