Dell‘s G2410 is a 24″ LCD Monitor with a LED backlight and sporting a pixel format of 1920 x 1080 making it another 1080p LCD monitor. The transition to 16:9 for all large LCD monitors is definite. The G2410 is touted as a green LCD monitor thanks to the LEd backlight. Dell is claiming that the G2410 (along with the smaller 22″ G2210) consumes just 50% of the power that regular LCD monitors consume. In this type of economy any help in reducing cost goes a long way. I’m not quite convinced of the 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio but Dell does explain it by stating that the, “Dynamic dimming automatically decreases the onscreen brightness when the image consists primarily of white and/or bright areas when enabled.” A bit confusing as to when dynamic dimming is activated. It seems as thought it is not local dimming but instead dimming of the entire backlight. If this is infact true, the one million to one dynamic contrast ratio might be a bit exaggerated. Let me know if I am wrong. The $359 price seems quite aggressive.
