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.

Why is it still only "full" HD? the old 24 inch monitor I have is 1920*1200, I got it 4 years ago... I'd like better pixel densities please!

Totally agreed but 2ms and .3 inches thick is HOT.

This is a nice looking bit of bling! I think that the price is a fair one too.

The guy is explaining how wonderful and fantastic it is, but the whole time that he's talking, he looks like needs a nap! [8-)]

Another TFT panel. There is a samsung 23" led backlit with same specs on newegg today for $219. Not sure what is special about the Dell?

Stay tuned pdjblum, we're lining up a review of Dell's new panel and will put it through our usual rigorous testing.

"This monitor to me doesn't really catch my attention, already saw a review, it actually performs great, but really nothing special . @ Paul, Im hoping the monitor you are reviewing is the Dell UltraSharp U2412M?? Right"

if you shop around and look for the specials, you can find most 23''rs and even up to 27" in the 150-200 range.

Nothing really special about having a ultra thin, unless you are that superficial and must have a monitor that can be knocked off the desk by your cat or hamster:P

You have hamsters running around your desk? I'm not that impressed either, I want the 1920x1200 resolution also. That is super thin though, looking forward to the review Paul.
