Dell ST2010 Launches Early
Without fanfare, Dell has today launched a new 20-inch LCD built for very entry-level systems. Released first in Hong Kong, the ST2010 has a 16:9 aspect ratio, 1600x900 resolution with a basic TN panel to keep costs down. In an unusual decision, however, the company drops regular DVI in favor of HDMI (with an audio pass-through) as well as VGA and makes a chin-mounted soundbar an option.
The screen also provides a 5ms pixel response time, a 1,000:1 static contrast ratio and a relatively small amount of adjustability with a 21-degree tilt backwards and no height or swivel movement. In the Chinese territory, the ST2010 sells for the equivalent of $142. Dell hasn't said whether or not it plans to bring the display to the US but typically sells its LCDs in all countries. [via John]
