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.
Summary: Highest resolution in a conventional aspect ratio (non-widescreen) Clear display with dual inputs, rotates & tilts easily Vertical adjustment release tends to stick at times Wish it had conventional power cord rather than AC-to-DC converter brick This is my 5th Dell monitor. Never had a dead pixel.
Summary: I currently have one of these that I bought new and wanted a second one. This second monitor is in good condition, but am a little disappointed in the brightness. I have the brightness setting all the way at 100 and it is still not as bright and sharp as my first one set at 50. Also, I am unable to change the contrast from 50 which is annoying. I think that could help. I've adjusted the brightness on my original monitor to more closely match this used one.
Summary: I bought it for the price. Seems to operate about identically to the two Dell 2007FPs I have. Cannot tell any operational differences. The stands are a little different which does not matter to me. I do audio conversion work and no games. Gamer players might notice limitation because they need the fastest and greatest. My Feet Of Flames movie seems to play well. For my work the 2001FP is quite satisfactory. Used it right out of the box. Never did have to adjust anything.
Summary: This is the monitor used in a PD workspace. The adjustable swival works perfect for the various employees that use the station. The screen is large and great color display. None of the extra features are used at this workstation so I won't comment on them. The openness of the stand allows easy access to speakers and wires that are used behind it.
Pros: Looking at most of the negative reviews I get the impression that many of these people are not using the monitor at its native 1600x1200 resolution. Both the NEC 1880SX and 1960NX have a poor native res of 1,280 x 1,024. Any LCD in wrong res will look p
Cons: Price! All LCDs are still too high. Heat from top of monitor – compared to Dell’s 17” LCDs this model seems to get a lot warmer along the top of the frame.
Pros: Great gaming LCD. This was THE monitor used by most ALL game and tech companies during E3 2004. nVidia, ATI and most all PC game companies used these exact monitors to showcase their stuff. The only reason I bought mine!
Cons: Support. For those with trouble with Dell support, go here for a video that will help: http://www.illwillpress.com/t ech.html (content is MY fault, CNET is not responsible for content outside of it's own site) ;)
