    [Engadget] Dell intros $339 G2410H 24-inch 1080p LCD monitor, I ask who cares?

    Okay, perhaps it's a little early and I'm a little cranky, but I have to ask...what is Dell thinking with this one? Yes, it has a WLED back-light, great. Other than that, it's your standard run of the mill 24" TN panel, but wait, it's 1080P too! To true PC monitor enthusiasts, this means you get 120px less of vertical real estate. Finally for the kicker...Dell wants to sell it for $339, which is the same price you can get a comparable IPS panel for from NEC. I just don't get it...

    But here's Engadget with a hands-on preview.

    Just over a year ago, Dell pushed out its latest and greatest 24-incher, the energy-sipping G2410. Today, the Round Rock powerhouse has introduced that very unit's successor (complete with a height adjustable stand), the G2410H. Still sized at 24-inches, this 1080p LCD monitor sports a variety of eco-modes, 5 millisecond response time, 160-degree (horizontal) / 170-degree (vertical) viewing angles, a native 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, ambient light sensor, 250 nits of brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and DVI / VGA inputs. We've had one in-house for around a week now, and for $339, it's not a bad replacement to that 21-inch CRT that's still weighing heavily on your desk. It's not as sharp and brilliant as the (admittedly more expensive) UltraSharp U2711, but it was certainly clear enough for the average home user. It's shipping now if you just can't resist.

    I agree, but it would be worth it if it is 120Hz.

    Yes, it would be. I believe the Acer 120Hz 24" TN panel is $399 msrp.
