HDTV LCD TVs for Less


When it comes to HDTVs, usually bigger is better. But sometimes you want a smaller unit, for a bedroom, home office, or small living space, for example. Enter the Dell W2600 26-inch LCD HDTV. With its compact size and relatively low price for a...

Solid overall image quality. Good connection options. Small size lets it fit into tight spaces. Competitively priced.

Standard-definition 4:3 content looks small on screen. Lacks individual input buttons on the remote.

The W2600 would make a fine second HDTV for a bedroom, and it could also serve as a primary TV in a smaller living space. It works well in a brightly lit room, and its $1,349 price won't break the bank.

Dell W2300 23 HDTV


Like the girl or boy next door, the Dell W2300 is a safe bet. It doesn't have the prom-queen or prom-king dazzle of some other TVs we reviewed, nor does it have their mercurial temperaments. It performed respectably and consistently in all of our...

The one truly disappointing feature of the Dell is its small, pewter-colored remote control, which produced the weakest signal we encountered. Commands often failed to register even when we stood two feet away from the TV and aimed straight at the...

Dell W1700 LCD TV


Dell has embraced the consumer electronics market with the release of several new products recently, including the W1700. Although its price ($699 direct) is in line with that of units in this group, Dell did not cut any corners.

Introduction When most people think of Dell, they picture the dorky blond guy, Stephen, pitching $399 computers on TV with his catchphrase, "Dude, you're getting a Dell!" Since the media phenomenon, Stephen has been busted for possession of pot and...

Dell W1700 17in. LCD TV


I was excited to purchase and enjoyed using this TV/PC monitor in my home office. Great to have the combination of PC monitor and stand alone TV with tuner. Monitor was good quality, and TV worked well. But after only 2 years the monitor went black...

Dell W2600 review


Dell may not be the first company you think of when looking for an LCD TV, but the PC manufacturer has really pulled out the stops on this well-specified debut. With high-definition compatibility in addition to the most complete connections roster...

Number of connections ; High-definition compatibility

Picture response time and contrast ; Speakers lack bass ; Cheap-looking remote control ; Lacks features

It's ironic that after it nailed AV connectivity so well, we have to advise you to use a PC with the Dell W2600 to get the best out of it. However, the W2600 is still a solid starting point for the company. It impresses in design but delivers exactly...

Dell W2600 - 26in LCD TV


About a year ago Dell surprised us by producing a first rate LCD TV. Now it's gone one better and produced the best LCD TV we've ever seen.

Not only is the W2600 the best LCD TV I've ever used, but at £998 it's an incredible bargain. If you're thinking about getting a media PC, or just want an LCD TV with a dizzying array of connection options, the Dell W2600 should be top of your list.
