Despite its undeniably large dimensions, by the stats, the Dell 27-inch LCD seemed like a flop to me. It has the same exact resolution of 1920 by 1200 that many 24-inch monitors have. Laughably, it is the same price as Dell's monster 30-inch monitor. CNet, the first ones out the gate with a review, gave it a middling score.
That grade, which sits firmly in the grey zone, does not represent our opinions which are torn between love and disdain. Upon first power-up, I found its range and brilliance outstanding. But it's not for everyone. In fact, at this price, it is almost for no one.
