Summary: I had read mixed reviews on this monitor, but what caught my eye was a report I read that said Dell intro'd this thing in the $1,200 neighborhood. I hope nobody paid that much for this thing but its a terrific monitor. OK, I bought this used. Options for a 1920x1200 are fairly limited these days, and my old Soyo finally crapped out. Its 3 years old, but the display is still sharp and crisp.
Summary: I recently put together a triple monitor setup for my gaming rig with three 2407wfp's. I really should have done my homework. I had a 3rd revision 2407 for years, and I loved it. The Rev03 had a rich wide color gamut and super black blacks. Then I got my 2nd 2407, which was a Rev04. The wide color gamut had been removed, which is fine really. I just couldn't get the colors to match perfectly. Maybe it's something that only I could tell.
Crisp, good quality display, USB may be defective, hot to the touch

Summary: The display is crisp and bright. I haven't noticed any dead or stuck pixels. It has a matte finish and there is no glare. The surrounding black frame also has a matte finish. To my eyes, the colors are reasonably accurate. However, I haven't done extensive image work nor have I played DVDs on it. This display has a USB hub with a flash card reader and the USB portion was defective in mine. I'm at an educational institution and Dell replaced at my mere report.
Excerpt: I have had this monitor for nearly 6 months now, after purchasing it from ebuyer.com. Firstly, it is expensive, but you certainly get what you pay for. I paid just over £400 for this which is a good deal when you make comparisons with other monitors on the market. Dell have always made top quality monitors, and I can say this is definitely a brand a feel comfortable with knowing that what I buy is of the highest quality.
Excerpt: This monitor is easily the best I have ever used! The clarity, depth of colour and sharpness of pitcure are absolutely superb. The Wide-Screen aspect was something that initially concerned me, but as my laptop is also a Dell Wide-Screen (Precision M65), this hasn't been an issue. Perhaps it might be though for someone who is trying to use a normal aspect laptop with the Wide-Screen monitor? (it might cause resolution problems when docking and undocking the laptop?
Excerpt: I don't have a bad thing to say about this monitor. its one of the best scrren ive seen , it also has the advantage of have 1080p resalution which is ture HD unlike most tv/pc monitor out there on the market today ,in my opinion there really no better monitor out there. The monitor supports PIP and PBP. You can also adjust the size of secondary display in PIP mode. Switching the input source is just a button press.
Excerpt: A couple of years ago I was given a 24inch CRT monitor when one of my friends upgraded to the forerunner of the 2407. A 24inch crt is quiet a big beast, totally dominated my desk, but it did true high definition (1080p) 1920x1080 which meant having a huge desktop. Once you have had that much desktop real estate you cant really go back. I decided if I was going down to buy a tft it had to be capable of this.
Pros: Bright, Crisp, space saving, inputs features, extras
Excerpt: As an Apple Macintosh user I was wary of buying a Dell monitor, but as it had a glowing review from MacUser magazine I went ahead. Quick delivery from Dell, and I was ready to plug in just 24 hours after placing the order. This monitor needs a DVI connection and a graphics card that will drive the 1920 x 1200 resolution - most modern cards should achieve that.
Pros: Plenty of ports and connectors, including a built - in flash card reader
Cons: Needs calibration to get best colour - a yellow cast straight out of the box was readily correctable .
Excerpt: Ich arbeite seit 7 Monaten an diesem Monitor. Er steht an der Seite eines Samsung 19"-TFT, der per Pivot hochkant betrieben wird. Der Monitor mag zwar zum Spielen oder DVD schauen interessant sein. Aber zum Arbeiten muss man erst einige Hürden nehmen. Und zum Arbeiten sollte der Monotor sein - immerhin hat er ein PVA-Display (was bekanntlich nicht das optimale Zockerdisplay ist) Der Dell hat eine (gemessene) Ausleuchtung von 135 - 450 cd/m². D.h.
Pros: Günstig, niedriger Verbrauch
Cons: zu hell, ziemlich warm, Farben ohne Kalibrierung kaum einstellbar
Excerpt: Heute ist er da- mein neuer Bildschirm, mein guter, alter ADI Microscan A715 darf in Rente gehen. Ich habe den 2407WFP vor ca. drei Wochen bestellt- damals noch für rund 765 Euro- ein schnäppchen, damals gab es aber auch noch 25 Prozent Rabatt auf diese Bildschirme- jetzt kostet er über tausend .Der Bildschirm wurde in drei Paketen geliefert- wohl DELL-Bürokratie- in einem Karton (!
