Pros that I can still return it
Cons too many to list
Summary I had so much respect for DELL's line of LCD technology and faith in DELL's management that I ended up buying three ULTRABLUR 1907fp's without bothering to research the product ... after all, it's supposed to be an upgrade to the spectacular 1905fp right ... well if you're looking for unbearable viewing angles, colors that are totally wacked and a blurry overall look to everything, well the 1907fp is your ticket (and yes I have everything set up properly with DVI in NATIVE resolution mode) ... to make a long story short, even my laptop monitor looks better than this piece of junk of an upgrade ... one good thing is that i can still return them ... what is DELL thinking?Updated
the people giving this monitor good reviews obviously either have an interest in selling this monitor or don't understand what the alternatives are ... i dare them to put a Viewsonic or a 1905fp (dell's prior 19 inch ultrasharp model) next to the 1907fp and still say "it's fantastic" ... bottom line is dell DOWNGRADED their ultrasharp line (probably for profitability reasons)
Pros The design is nice I guess.
Cons Back light bleed, ghosting, very poor video playback
Summary This monitor is garbage learn from other mistakes and do not buy this monitor. Mine had dead pixels and is just plain horrible. Dont get me started with dells tech support. I could write a book about how bad this thing is. The panel is cheap junk also. Just learn from my mistake and do not get this.
Pros 1) high-end design 2) price 3) USB ports
Cons 1) poor viewing angles 2) color reproduction 3) height adjustability
Summary After using the predecessor 1905FP for about a year I have to say that 1907FP came as a major disappointment.
After reading in forums number of negative reviews for 1907FP, esp. regarding poor viewing angles and color reproduction, I refused to believe that 1907FP could be that bad and since I urgently needed another monitor and very much liked the design of the new model I decided to risk it and go for it.
Unfortunately, the reported weaknesses turned out to be as bad as reported. The largest disappointment were the viewing angles. Without having deeper understanding of the issue, I thought that when I use the monitor in a “standard” way, i.e. looking straight in the middle of the screen, difference between viewing angles of 130/140 vs. 170 degrees can’t be really a problem. In fact however, after starting to use the 1907FP, it turned out that even relatively minor movements of your head (2 inches up or down) mean significant changes of brightness in upper and lower part of the screen which is quite annoying. I’ve tried to fix the screen in all possible angles but nothing really helped avoid this issue.
While the color reproduction and height adjustability are also weaker comparing to the previous model, I believe that that is something which you can ultimately accept and get used to, but the issue of poor viewing angles appears to be - at least from my perspective - a truly strong argument for not buying this monitor.Updated
Just to add - I have the 1907FPc version.
Pros Great industrial design, beautiful picture, a darn good monitor for the price.
Cons It is pretty bright, and low resolution pictures still look better on a CRT.
Summary I have no idea what those who gave this monitor low ratings are complaining about. I've had mine for a week and I love the thing. The picture quality and the resolution are magnificent. The colors are amazing. The controls are easy to use. Text and graphics look awesome. And it's a good looking monitor.
The resolution and sharpness are so good...that when looking at lower resolution pictures, maybe this monitor's resolution is too good. You notice some pixelation. But when I look at high resolution pictures downloaded from my digital camera...I'm blow away. And...yes...the thing was a little bright when I first turned it on. But isn't that what the brightness controls are for? I made the necessary adjustments...no problem. And what's this about a wobbly stand? Mine is very sturdy.
So...I don't know...maybe you guys got bad ones...or I got lucky and got one of the few where they did everything right. But I love this monitor!
Pros Bright, nice design
Cons Have to tweak with the colors
Summary It should be mention that the review from cnet for the 1907FP has the Samsung LCD rather than the new AUO LCD the samsung has 700:1 ratio and dell has now swapped the Samsung for the AUO which has only 500:1, even if the looks is the same you should not base your purchase on this review for this model. I bought this model and was disappointed.Updated
Added, sorry but the above message but the Samsung LCD was for the 1905FP which was the previous model. The new 1907FP use AUO LCD.
