Summary: Dell 2408WFP is not just an S-PVA matrix with excellent viewing angles, but also great color reproduction, extended color gamut and a large selection of interfaces including HDMI and even DisplayPort. Read more in our review!
Summary: The 2408WFP comes with a number of connectors: HDMI, DVI, VGA, and component video, as well as a built-in USB hub and 9-in-2 media card reader. Dell also throws in a DisplayPort connector for the few people who run DP-capable videocards. We applaud Dell’s 2408WFP for its efforts. While its saturation comes off a bit strong, we’d use this monitor on our desk without reservation—unless someone was offering us Samsung’s 245T too.
Pros: Plenty of inputs; great grayscales; huge color gamut.
Excerpt: While most early adopters and Gen Y-ers are used to the idea of watching TV on their PC using services like Bebo, Hulu, Joost or a million alternatives, now the rest of the world is finally catching up. Have yet to join the party? It’s about time you tuned in – and upgraded your monitor to really enjoy all of these groovy options as they’re meant to be experienced. Thankfully, Dell’s new Ultra-Sharp 2408WFP 24-inch widescreen flat panel monitor can help.
Pros: Excellent picture quality; great for gaming; plenty of input options
Cons: Needs color adjustment out of the box; stand tends to wiggle
Conclusion: All in all I was impressed with the Dell 2408WFP, just as I had been with the 2405FPW and 2407WFP-HC before it. The ergonomics and interface options are excellent, and really set the standard in the consumer monitor market. Build quality and design are very nice, and there was no real need to change it since the 2407WFP models. Hopefully this review covers all the possible early complaints about the screen, including the 'issues' which some users had reported.
Pros: Excellent design, ergonomics and interface options, Excellent colour accuracy once calibrated, Free from text blur, sharpness, DLP rainbow, colour banding and black ghosting issues which some may be concerned about from early user reports
Cons: Poor default colour accuracy, you will need to calibrate properly, Input lag is very high, Responsiveness not quite as good as some other 24" models
