Excellent monitor, timeless design, will not replace it until it's gone!
7 September 2014
Summary: I'm a computer programmer and this monitor has been serving me well for 10 years now. I've recently bought another one from ebay for a dual monitor setup and it's really a double-pleasure now :) I don't condemn the current widescreen craze, but do not understand why it is being enforced so much. Monitors like 2001FP are rare these days, yet their quality, design & connectivity is excellent. Even after more than a decade, you don't feel like using something that old.
Summary: The monitor is required for programming. a 1080 resolution in the vertical direction just doesn't work. The seller, a first time ebayer was great, and the monitor is perfect. It is a sad day to see the 4:3 aspect ratio monitors disappear because of lazy monitor makers, who would rather capitalize on a easy supply of sub-standard HD screens, then to make a monitor that is useful. I have 4 of these and intend to acquire about 4 more.
Although when I recieved it it was busted at the top like someone dropped it

Summary: Cheap for the price of the product... Although when I recieved it it was busted at the top like someone dropped it... Was also packaged very poorly.. Works but looks all dinged up... Does have picture in picture as well as various other hook up capabilities..
Summary: One of the better 4:3 monitors still left out there. 1600x1200 resolution, USB 2.0 hub built in, adjustable stand, external power brick are some of the options. Brightness not as bright as a newer LED monitor. Response rate not as fast as newer monitors, but that's to be expected as these are several years old.
this model is old... take a shot maybe you'll get a good one

Summary: when buying this older model monitor you run the chance you could get something old and worn out, well i did, the monitors i bought were indeed old and worn out, i needed to use them in a dual setup and just could not get the colors,sharpness nor brightness close enough to use side by side, i tried them on seversl machines and also tried using with a new video card, no luck, the computer store said "face it, dell hasn't offered this for some time"
