    My boss is thinking of purchasing a Dell W2600, any ideas who actually manufactures the screens?

    Think they're made in China, along with the majority of TFT's

    Id say LG or Samsung i very much doubt that sharp or panny would sell to dell also dell are a bit tight at spending money so again they may not want to pay sharp or panny money when LG Samsung will do a cheaper option

    Might be Philips, but the plant that makes them all is in China.

    Either way, Dell TFT's are as good as anyone elses. (looking at one now!).

    I have a Dell W1700. It is built around a DCD-i core by Faroudja. Indeed it is made in China.

    It has, like all modern equipment, some firmware bugs. But I have not seen any firmware version, possibility to update, etc.
    It is (very much) inferior to my Philips 32PF9986, but on the small screen it is less obvious and it is quite suitable as a bedroom TV. I'm not sure if I would want a 26" of this quality, but to each his own.

    The W1700 uses an IPS panel, I think the larger TVs do as well. This is LG-Philips technology so likely the panels came from the them. Faroudja DCDi technology is from Genesis Microchip, who will have supplied the scaler chipset. Then they're all screwed together in China.
