How soon will it hit the street? Middle of the year? Really, there is nothing to excited about it. Apple already have a very similar model out for quite a while.

See below for info from Dell site (dell.com.au)

Is this the 24" (that is diagonally) that is 20" wide?

Note the viewing angle is not that good (at least for using it as a TV).

Cheeres,

Ashley.

Great thanks Juice.

That's a relief to see the viewing angles are + or - 89 degrees.

Also, it is (close) to 20 inches wide (but I still agree that's probably a misprint).

Cheers,

Ashley.

Just an add on:

When I called Dell Australia to buy a Laptop from the Factory Outlet page I ended up speaking to a Thai girl in Singapore.

Seems the phones go to Dell Asia Pacific.

Got good service though.

Must this monitor must be used with a PC with tuner card.  i.e. you can't plug in an HD STB into the component input  ??

Im pretty sure you can.. Whats the point of having those inputs if you can't use em? :blink:

The reason I am asking is because the monitor syncs to 56 to 76 Hz refresh rate, and PAL standard is 50 Hz.

AFAIK, most all (cheaper) LCDs are 60Hz and they will perform conversion of 50Hz to 60Hz internally. It just doesn't make sense for LCD panel makers to make two completely different version of panels - easier to have conversion electronics (maybe, just one chip) built-in.

Besides, this monitor is available in Europe which is (PAL/SECAM) world @ 50Hz - it just wouldn't make sense if it couldn't be used with TV with S-video/YPrPb inputs there also.

The reason I am asking is because the monitor syncs to 56 to 76 Hz refresh rate, and PAL standard is 50 Hz.

My guess is that this applies only to VGA input - YPrPb is always either 50/60Hz.

This sounds logical, does anyone know if this is right. if I can connect even an SD STB via component to one of these babies, I would buy one tomorrow
