The Dell SP2309W seems to have bowled everyone over and we finally got our hands on one. After spending enough time drooling over the design and picture quality I decided to get back to work and post the review for you guys.
The Dell SP2309W comes with a 16:9 TN panel that has a native
resolution of 2048x1152 pixels; bit more than FullHD. So, while you get
more space to work with, you also have a video-friendly panel that
won't distort the movies that you'd want to watch on this. The panel
comes with a very high Dynamic Contrast Ration of 80000:1 and a really
fast response time of 2ms. Viewing angles are 160 (v) and 170 (h)
degrees respectively. The SP2309W comes with a twin hinge stand and a large sturdy base that allows for a 360-degree screen rotation, thanks to the swivel mechanism. Another hinge forms the neck that allows the panel to be tilted to a table-top position.
The bottom right corner of the bezel has the touch sensitive power button as well as five vertically aligned touch sensitive OSD buttons that allow you to customize the display settings. The buttons light up only when there is a function attached to them. The OSD menu is intuitive but may take some time getting used to as the buttons are not labeled. There are six display presets to choose from i.e., Standard, Multimedia, Game, Warm, Cool and sRGB, but none of them was worthwhile. I'd rather use the customs settings.
