Summary: I've owned this monitor for over 3 years and it has worked great the entire time. It has USB and card readers built into the side which are very convenient. The color accuracy is adequate for working with photos and printing images. The brightness goes higher than you will need, as does the contrast. I will definitely get another Dell monitor in the future.
Summary: Pros: 1. Capable of delivering very saturated color. 2. 4 USB 2.0 ports 3. Display port, HDMI, two DVIs, VGA, component video, and S-video -- it could as well be used as a TV. 4. Audio input/output 5. Wide viewing angles both vertically and horizontally. 6. Can be rotated to portrait orientation 7. Easy to be taken off from monitor stand to mount onto something else Cons: 1. Runs a little bit too warm 2.
Summary: Overall, this is a good monitor for a fair price. It has all kinds of inputs, the size is perfect, and the SPVA panel is a plus. On the other hand, it's really hard to calibrate the colors, I bought it three months ago and I'm still not happy with the setup, you can tell the difference when you have 2 different monitors together.
Summary: I've had this monitor for over a year now. It is pretty good. The Pros are: Very bright (which, yes, is good), but it can be turned down to very dim as well. Tons of ports and a good size. A a good price. I paid about $450. The Cons are: Annoying/unintuitive menu button operation. Kind of a low static contrast ratio (1300 to 1), so blacks aren't as defined in dark scenes. If I could improve 1 thing it would be the contrast ratio.
Summary: Very nice monitor -- fairly bright, good resolution, easily readable text and good-looking graphics. But make sure you get the extended warranty (luckily I did). We have four of these in the lab, and broken buttons on one and mine just suddenly died completely after about 2 years.
Summary: The 2408 WFP offers good features and image quality but at a pretty expensive price. I upgraded from a 2001FP and the height adjustment isn't as easy to use as my FP older model. The monitor quality also isn't as sharp as other Korean brand monitors like LG and Samsung. I basically bought this Dell monitor for its ergonomic features for working long hours but I wouldn't recommend it for casual home PC shoppers.
Summary: Simply put, I love the Dell Ultrasharp line of monitors. I currently have two monitors, one 24" and one 21", the older one has been running for over five years with zero problems, the "younger" of the two has been running strong for three years. I would consider myself both a medium level gamer and a medium level Photoshop user - I do neither of these professionally nor for 8hrs a day, but I have more than a passing knowledge of both.
Summary: I think for this price this monitor is outstanding, the sharpness and clarity of this monitor is unbeatable a this price. I bought and returned 2 other 24 inch monitors before buying this one (one Samsung and one Viewsonic), the quality of the picture on this monitor is so superior that there is no comparison, the other 2 were unacceptable (font fuziness, off colors...)for somebody like me who spends hours everyday in front of the monitor and value his eyes.
