Dell 24-inch E248WFP Display: Because price (and size) matters | StuffGeeksWant

Dell 24-inch E248WFPLooking for a sweet 23″/24″ display that can pump out an HD-happy 1920×1200 resolution? You could spring for Apple’s classy 23-inch Cinema HD Display for $899… or you could grab Dell’s budget 24-inch E248WFP for a scant $389 (after instant savings).

What does spending 65 percent less cost you? Not much, apparently, apart from Apple’s stylish aluminum digs:

  Dell E248WFP Apple Cinema HD
Screen Size 24-inches 23-inches
Resolution 1920×1200 1920×1200
Brightness 400 cd/m2 300 cd/m2
Contrast 1000:1 700:1
Response Time 5 ms 14 ms
Viewing Angle 160 degrees 178 degrees
Pixel Pitch 0.282 mm 0.258 mm
Stand Tilt only Tilt only
Connector DVI-D only DVI-D only
Extras none 2-port USB 2.0 hub
2-port FireWire hub

A minority of owners of Dell’s display have complained of poor out-of-the-box color, an area Apple is particularly strong in, but with some adjustments pleasing results can be achieved.

And the extra $500 in your wallet is also pretty pleasing, if you ask me.

Want something a little higher-end from Dell? The 24-inch 2408WFP supports 6 video inputs (S-Video, component, composite, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA), has a better panel, height-adjustable stand, built-in 9-in-2 card reader, and 4 USB 2.0 ports.

And at $619 (after instant savings), it’s still got the Apple display nicely beat on price.
