It wasn’t long ago that HP introduced its own pair of ultra-skinny, ultra-svelte displays to the tech world. The build quality is solid, with a sleek, attractive design and a horizontal profile so slim its unreal. That clearly struck a chord with Dell, whose new S2330MX display looks to be even thinner.

In addition to being super thin, Dell is targeting the S2330MX to be super ecofriendly, too. The display uses an LED backlighting system in order to keep energy costs down – the color neutral lighting also helps maintain a reasonably wide 82% color gamut. The green cred continues with the monitor’s EPEAT Gold and Energy Star certifications as well as arsenic- and mercury-free LED panels and circuit boards.
Dell is marketing the ultra-slim display to both consumer and business market points; the power savings and space shrinkage help sell it to style-conscious businesses while the look and high-performance refresh rate can make any PC enthusiast take a second look. The S2330MX can be found on Dell’s site right now; it comes with an MSRP of $249.99.
