New Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP 24″ Widescreen Display

Today we introduced the UltraSharp 2408WFP widescreen flat panel display. Following the 3008WFP, it is our second monitor that supports DisplayPort… while I was pulling together some details on this monitor, I was told that our 22" Crystal display does not have a DisplayPort connector. I updated that post. Now, on to the fun stuff.

We've talked about DisplayPort before, but to catch everyone up, it optimizes both panel performance and simplifies platform interoperability. Just like I said with our 30" display, the new 2408WFP is all about performance and connectivity.


The new display features HDMI, DVI, VGA, component, S-Video and composite video connections, and the 2408 also has a 9-in-2 media card reader and 4 high-speed USB ports.

Performance-wise, it features a quick 6ms response time, a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 1920×1200 native resolution, and TrueColor technology with 110% color gamut. If you really want to dig into color gamut details, you can take a look at this color chromacity explanatory chart from Georgia State University. Thanks to AnnaAtDell for that information.

The 2408WFP is available to customers in the United States for $699, the same price as the previous model it replaces. Bottom line, if the 3008WFP was too expensive or you didn't quite have enough room on your desk, the 2408WFP might just be the monitor to go for.
