It's new monitor season at Dell. After the DisplayPort-equipped 30" 3008WFP and 24" 2408WFP, the Texan PC vendor is back with a brand new 20" display. The UltraSharp 2009W doesn't have DisplayPort connectivity, but it does feature a new panel with a contrast ratio of 2000:1, a rated color gamut of 102%, and a five-millisecond response time.
The 2009W doesn't break new ground on other fronts, though. Its 1680 x 1050 resolution is the same as that of Dell's previous 20" wide-screen displays, its 170° horizontal and 160° vertical viewing angles are about average, and so is its 300cd/m² luminosity rating. Dell has opted to offer only traditional DVI and VGA inputs, although the DVI connection has high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) support that will let folks watch encrypted high-definition video discs. The 2009W also doubles as a USB hub with two USB 2.0 ports (plus one printer-style master port) on the rear and two on the side.
Dell has already started selling the 2009W, and you can nab it right now from the company's website for only $289. Three-year warranty coverage and a height-adjustable stand come as standard. (Thanks to Gizmodo for the tip.)
