Dell sneaks out new 24-inch IPS monitor

A look at Dell's new IPS-based 24-inch monitor.

The Dell UltraSharp U2410 has a similar design to recent "10" series monitors from Dell. Dell

The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP is the highest-rated monitor I've yet reviewed. It's also the most popular monitor I've reviewed, as it's constantly in the top five most viewed monitors and is many times, No. 1.

On Monday Dell started selling what some are seeing as the successor to the UltraSharp 2408WFP, the UltraSharp U2410.

The new monitor keeps the 16:10 aspect ratio of the 2408WFP, with a 1,900x1,200 resolution. While the 2408WFP got its wide viewing angles and color fidelity from a S-PVA panel, the U2410 utilizes an IPS panel to (hopefully) do the same.

Other specs for the U2410 include a 400 cd/m2 brightness, a 6ms response time, four USB ports, and VGA, DVI-D, DisplayPort, HDMI, and Component connections.

The price? $599. That's $50 less than Dell currently sells the 2408WFP for. Look for a review a couple seconds after Dell sees fit to send me a monitor to try out.
