New Dell monitor has 21.5'' panel size, 1080p resolution

The slow transition to desktop monitors with 16:9 aspect ratios seems to produce some odd specimens. Dell's latest entry is the SX2210, a new "full HD" display that couples an unusual 21.5" panel size with a 1920x1080 resolution.

The SX2210 is up for sale right now on Dell's website for $279. Apart from the weird resolution and panel size combo, this monitor has a 2ms response time, 50,000:1 "dynamic" contrast, 300cd/m² luminosity, 160°/170° viewing angles, and both DVI and HDMI connectivity. There's a built-in two-megapixel camera and dual microphones, as well.

Refreshingly, Dell specifies the panel type—twisted nematic, or TN—in the specs page. That's not exactly a surprise considering the price tag, though. Dell's higher-quality, S-PVA UltraSharp 2408WFP costs over 500 bucks, although it does have a bigger 24" panel with slightly more pixels.
