Dell Crystal LCD Monitor

This is Dell's new fancy monitor, the "Dell Crystal LCD." I applaud Dell's willingness to put this one to market. Its design certainly makes a statement.

Here's why you shouldn't buy it: It's only a 22-inch monitor with a 1,680 by 1,050 resolution. At this point I wouldn't buy a monitor smaller than 24 inches with a 1080p or great resolution. (The typical monitor resolution at that size is 1,920 by 1,200 pixels.) And if I weren't going to buy a big widescreen monitor it would be because I was going to buy two monitors to use in a dual screen configuration, which the wide glass bezel of the Crystal LCD precludes.

Oh, and it's $1,200—$900 more than other 22-inch models from Dell.

Still, I really like it as a concept and I hope to see more risk-taking and similar design choices from Dell, if only to see that sort of design filter down into their cheaper hardware.
