New Dell 27-inch Monitor Uses Same LCD Panel as 27-inch iMac

By February 10, 2010

Follow me on:

If you've ever wondered what the value of the 27-inch iMac's display is, Dell has given us a partial answer: $1,099. Dell's just released UltraSharp U2711 monitor uses the same panel found in the 27-inch iMac. Of course, Dell adds a few extras, like a media card reader and multiple video inputs, including HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, Component, and Composite.

We can also glean a few specs from the Dell monitor that should apply to the 27-inch iMac's display, including a 6ms response time and a dynamic contrast ration of 80,000:1.

So, if anyone says, "Your 27-inch iMac is overpriced - I could get a PC with the same capabilities for $700" tell them to thrown in a $1099 display.
