Dell has dropped a nice 27-inch monitor that isn't too expensive — the UltraSharp U2713HM. It's the first display from Dell to use advanced high-performance IPS (AH-IPS), a technology that's supposed to improve on both colour and clarity.
Although it was only announced on the company's Japanese site, the screen looks like it will only cost around $US637. That's not a bad deal!
Update: Gizmodo readers have pointed out in the comments that the monitor is now listed on Dell Australia's website for $799.
Update 2: Dell have been in touch and confirmed that the price for the new monitor is $799. Thanks guys!
The 2560x1440 resolution LCD has four USB 3.0 ports, as well as HDMI, dual-link DVI connector, DisplayPort and VGA-out. There's no Thunderbolt support, like Apple's screen of the same size, but then again it's hundreds of dollars cheaper — and that's a tradeoff we'll happily take. [AV Watch via The Verge]
