Dell Studio XPS 16 High-End LCD Reportedly Shows the Most Colors
According to those geeks over at Anandtech, the Studio XPS 16 can show a lot of colors. Definitely a plus for display quality and an attractive feature for creative professionals.
It’s not just that Dell has managed to close the gap with desktop LCDs; they have actually surpassed what many of the best desktop LCDs achieve! A color gamut of 112% of the Adobe RGB 1998 standard is extremely impressive. The “secret sauce” in this recipe for success is that Dell uses RGB LED backlighting instead of the standard white or yellow LEDs (or CCFLs) found in most LCDs. Obviously desktop LCDs have managed better color gamuts prior to now, but this is the first LED backlit LCD I’ve seen that actually manages to provide a good color gamut. That bodes well for the future of both desktop and laptop LCDs based on LED backlighting — good colors and lower power requirements all in the same package.
Unfortunately, I’m not so into this particular Studio’s 1920 x 1080 resolution. 16 inches of visual real estate is quite generous, but such a high amount of pixels is more suitable for larger displays. At least for those who don’t like to squint to properly understand those too tiny dots of color.
