Design nerds unite - the Crystal monitor, which is available now, could change the way people think of monitors altogether.  Combining great design and great functionality, the Crystal is a 22” solid tempered glass monitor with built in speakers with a maximum resolution of 1680x1050 (um, what?!) and a 2 millisecond response time.

That is one way cool monitor! I wouldn’t mind having it sitting on my desk right now, surfing this site, playing the bleeding edge videos. I wouldn’t mind having it for playing my RPG games either, not to mention watching TV and DVDs.

It’s a very nice design. There is one point that I don’t realy get. There is only a 1680x1050 resolution. I mean some 17” notebooks have a 1920x1200 resolution.
Anyway the design is awesome, the glass border, 4 speakers, etc.

Never nice design for the screen, bad for the screen like mentioned is the resolution size but for gaming and watching videos and surfing this site and others would be nice on that size screen with clarity.

The only thing I wonder about is the speakers. Are they made to handle a lot of soundwaves? I mean, they looked like a pair of speakers I have that have no clarity, and no volume.

Your first sentence is quite strange. You don’t like the design?

I wonder if the speakers are good. They probably can’t be so good as a simple 2.1 system…

That is a cool big monitor I could really see things on the screen with one of those. I wonder how loud the speakers go and if they go to loud will they break the glass?

Very nice monitor. I’ve been looking into monitors for my friend, I think I’ll show him this!

That’s kinda what I was trying to get at. Just how powerful are they. It’s too bad there wasn’t a better demo - or was there and it just wasn’t recorded??? I still like the monitor, even with the fact that if you have kids, or a very dusty house, it will attract the dust like a magnet, as well as fingerprints. (better keep a cleaning cloth handy!)

So the question now is not does this look totally awesome, but:

Does the Dell Crystal LCD look better than the Apple Cinema Displays?

I think it just might… I’ll bet you that if Apple made one of those and stuck their glowing logo on it, it would sell more than all the other Apple Displays put together.

Nope, I wouldn’t recommend Dell for Monitors, nothing about the company.  I’m just a little bitter at how crappy service I got when I purchased a Dell monitor a few years back.. They actually sent me 3 faulty monitors (replacements).. I finally just asked for my money back and stayed the hell away from Dell.
