Excellent Long-Lived Monitor (if you don't need HDCP)
12 June 2011
Summary: PLEASE READ: This review was originally written in 2010 or '11. It was written solely for a Dell 2405FPW, and HOW INTERESTING IT IS THAT IT NOW (MONTHS LATER) FINDS ITSELF REFERRING TO A DIFFERENT DELL MONITOR - PLEASE NOTE: I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PARTICULAR P2411H MONITOR AS I HAVE NEVER OWNED ONE. SOMEHOW, MY REVIEW FOR A 2405FPW WAS MOVED AND ASSOCIATED WITH THE DELL P2411H. PERHAPS OTHER PEOPLE'S REVIEWS WERE MOVED AS WELL.
Summary: The Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24 inch LCD Monitor is the bast monitor Dell has produced. A crisp resolution of 1920x1200 make it pair perfectly with the high-end Macbook Pro as a secondary monitor (or primary). This is a VERY well built monitor as I have owned 6 for more than 4 years with no issues at all. I put about 10x more hours on them than my LG plasma TV and my Sony LCD TV and both have been service since. Why Dell discontinued this model I have no idea.
Summary: This monitor is great. The only drawback is that it doesn't to HDCP, though it was designed and manufactured before HD was popular, and almost even in existence. Sometimes it is too bright, as many LCDs are, and works best in a well-lit room. Normal lighting is fine, but you will notice it if you watch a movie with the lights out.
Summary: SUPER 24" DELL MONITOR...ULTRASHARP. YOU CAN COMBINE TO WORK ON PC. AND WATCH IN SAME TIME TV CHANEL...SELECTED PIP OR PBP BY S-VIDEO OR DVI CABLE AND IMAGE QUALITY IS FANTASTIC. EXCELENT RAPORT ...QUALITY/PRICE FOR 24" DISPLAY AND RECONDE. I LOVE THIS MONITOR.....THANKS DELL.
Summary: I first used this monitor at work for about a year. I just now decided that I need one at home too. Things I love: The picture quality is fantastic. The ports on the monitor... additional usb and lan ports, firewire and component You can turn the screen vertical and the it will automatically adjust. 24" of graphics and gaming heaven.
Summary: Great value, ultra sharp image, nice features, many ports for connectivity, USB & card readers built in! Overall a fantastic monitor! Considering buying more of this model for our Macs, a better alternative to a same size Apple monitor!
Summary: This is the same monitor I have at work which is what prompted me to purchase one for home. It is bright and has great resolution, but the main thing that sets this apart from most other monitors is the stand. It tilts and swivels, which most others do, but it also is height adjustable and rotates 90 degrees. It also has a memory flash card reader built in to the left side of the monitor that reads pretty much any of the standard memory cards.
Summary: I’ve worked for a couple of large companies over the past several years; in the elapse time I’ve used several of the higher name brand computers and monitors, what I’ve found is that the dell brand has given me the most satisfaction. In my opinion even though the Dell 2405FPW may not have the best rating on the market over the time I’ve been using this brand on the job it has definitely been the most durable and longer lasting.
Summary: I like the size of the computer it fits right under the monitor stand.It has all the latest features of a new dell.The reason I bought it is I'm a student and single mom,so when I won it for $137 I was thrilled.I also got a wireless USB 2 card from the same seller and it works great as well.I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: First off this is a 24" monitor which means you can move up to the 1920 X 1200 resolution. The good thing is that it costs the same as a new 22" which only runs at 1680 X 1050, the same as a 20", so you are just enlarging the pixels on a 22" and not getting any more real estate like you are on the 24". The other thing about this monitor is that you don't have to pay the very high price of a new model 24" from Dell, yet it looks that same.
