Dell Crystal displays to launch soon

Won't be cheap

It seems like Dell jumped the gun on its Crystal range of displays, which look set to launch any time now, as HotHardware has scored a spec sheet as well as some additional information on this beauty.

Dell even had a Website up for a short period of time before it was taken down, although we're not sure what it contained as there aren't any screen shots of it. Nonetheless, the new Crystal display will feature a 22-inch panel and features a 4mm thick tempered shee of glass on the front.

The sheet of glass houses the built-in speakers and display controls, but it also adds to the bulk and wieght of the display, as it measures 420.5 x 665.2 x 180.1mm (HxWxD) and weighs 8.6kg, which is very large and quite heavy for a 22-inch TFT display.

It also features a built-in 2 megapixel Web cam and a mono mic, both of which connect via USB 2.0. The screen resolution is the standard 1,680x1,050 for 22-inch panels and it connects to your PC via DVI. There's only a single cable running from the panel, which splits into a DVI connector, a subwoofer out, USB and power cable. It uses an external power brick and comes with a DVI to HDMI converter as well as a cleaning cloth, which we think will be quite well used to remove all those greasy finger prints it is likely to catch.

Price-wise, you're looking at US$1,199, which seems pretty steep, no matter the cool design.

You can find the HotHardware page here with some more details, as well as a download link for the PDF.
