Dell U2410 Display
Dell on Thursday picked Japan as the venue for its first high-end 24-inch LCD introduction since the 2408WFP. The UltraSharp U2410 switches from an already precise PVA (patterned vertical alignment) panel to a more accurate IPS (in-plane switching) panel. The difference gives it 100 percent coverage of the sRGB color space and 96 percent of the Adobe RGB space, making it near-ideal for photo or video editors; these also get color calibration data out of the box to help them adjust the display without having to use a hardware tool.
The U2410 is modernized in other ways, such as its 80,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 6ms average pixel response time and 400cd/m2 brightness. Like its ancestor, the update Dell display has multiple input options that include DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI and VGA for digital signals as well as component and RCA inputs for analog sources. A four-port USB hub takes on expansion.
The initial launch takes place in Japan, where the U2410 is available today for the equivalent of $758. A US launch is near-certain, but release details haven't been made public. [via Impress]
