"Calling this monitor Ultrasharp is an overstatement!"2.0 starson by hydropia
Pros: Sleek design, relatively cheap, USB connections on the side, no external power supply
Cons: The 1907FP is a disappointing step back for Dell in terms of 1) color reproduction, 2) viewing angle and 3) height adjustability
Summary: The 1907 is a disappointing step back for Dell in terms of 1) color reproduction, 2) viewing angle and 3) height adjustability
Pictures look horrible on this display compared to the old model 1905FP. This is caused by Dell's decision to downgrade the panel from a high quality 8-bit to a much cheaper 6-bit panel. As a result the 1907 has to dither its colors (16.2M colors with dithering). The old 1905 was capable of 16.7M TRUE colors. Whether the colors are dithered or true makes a huge difference to the display of photos. I was almost crying when I compared my 1907 side by side with my sister's 1905. C'MON WAKE UP CNET!!!!! WE, YOUR READERS, NEED SUCH DETAILS!!!
The viewing angle on the new model is 140 where it was 170 on the old one. I particular dislike the very noticeable shift in brightness when you change the vertical angle.
The 1907 also extends almost 2 inches less in the height than the old stand. Off course, this is only a problem if you like me like the screen to sit high.
That said the 1907FP is a sleek and sexy looking monitor. It also has better response time than the old one. But I don't really care as I do not game.....
How unfortunate Dell has discontinued the 1905! So if true color reproduction is important spend a little more money and find a LCD with an 8 bit panel or rush to EBAY to find the FP1905.
