Regardless of its efforts
, when discussing desktops, laptops, and even rumored smartphones
, there are few brands in the business capable of inspiring a deep, consumer yawn as quickly as Dell. That can't be said about Dell's display business however, which has consistently provided sleek monitors offering some of the best bang for the buck in the business. Dell's newest 20-incher is already out in Hong Kong where we expect it will soon begin its journey west. This entry-level monitor speaks the new design language of Dell's XPS and Studio rigs and comes packing HDMI and VGA inputs with specs that include a 1600 x 900 (that's a 16:9 aspect) pixel resolution, 5 millisecond response, 1000:1 contrast and 250 nits of brightness with a 160-degree viewing angle. Not great, but decent specs for the HK$1,098 (tax inclusive) price which we expect to be about $120 - 130 by the time model ST2010 lands Stateside.
