Conclusion: After a year of use for both regular duties such as homework and bill paying, and some intense gamming, I am thoroughly pleased with the performance of the 2405FPW. This LCD will be a welcome addition to the desktop of anyone willing to spend the money on it. I bought this monitor in March 2005 on sale for $1,004.00. At the time, it had a regular price of $1,199.00. I would have given it 9.0 out of 10 with the 1.0 loss due to the $1,200.00 price tag.
Pros: Incredible visual clarity, Ease of set up, Extra I/O ports on the side, 12 ms response time great for gaming
Cons: Price – Lower, but still $800.00, Some may think it is too big
Conclusion: Aside from the lack of HDCP support via the DVI input input, the Dell 2405FPW 24-in. LCD is a first class, top-of-the-line monitor. The picture quality is excellent, the integrated features go above and beyond anything else on the market, and the price make this beauty a flat-out steal. Whether for gaming, working large spreadsheets, or Photoshopping in full 24-in. glory, the 2405FPW is the king of the large panel LCDs.
Pros: Large, bright screen; many inputs; small footprint; fast response time
Cons: No HDCP support via the DVI input; could be replaced soon by a newer model
