Dell's new S2330MX Ultra Slim monitor might do for your current LCD what your first LCD did for your CRT monitor: make it look fat by comparison. That's because the S2330MX is Dell's slimmest monitor yet with a profile that measures a scant 0.3 inches, which is thinner than many smartphones. Let that last bit sink in for a moment.
Dell actually let the cat out of the bag yesterday in a YouTube video pre-announcing the display (see below), but stopped short of giving viewers the full skinny (see what we did there?), including price. Today's a new day, the S2330MX has a product page, and we have the details.
The S2330MX is a 23-inch LED backlit LCD display that measures 21.74 x 7.41 x 16.15 (W x D x H) inches and weighs 8.29 pounds (with stand and cable). It's a Full HD (1920x1080) display with a 0.265mm pixel pitch, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 2ms gray-to-gray response time (with overdrive), and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio (8,000,000:1 dynamic).
Connectivity options consist of an analog connector and a DVI-D connector with HDCP support, and Dell also includes an HDMI adapter, giving the S2330MX a fair amount of flexibility in hooking up with your electronic gear. If that all sounds like a winning combination, you can grab one off of Dell's website for $250.
