Pros 20inch, great responce time, price
Cons wish the USB ports were placed somewhere better
Summary I have had mine for about 2 months and am very impressed!!! Originally I was looking @ the apple display but the price difference ouch! Very pleased. Would another one. I would like to have dual inputs but that is not a must have for me.
Pros crisp text, option of portrait positioning for business use, loads of viewable space at it's resident 1600 x 1200 setting, substantial base, 4 usb ports in the monitor, outstanding value for the price
Cons lame cord management loop in the back, front control buttons poorly marked
Summary I waited a long time to get an LCD monitor and was apprehensive since I always thought CRTs were far superior. Also heard about a "screen door effect" this monitor supposedly produces. The minute I turned it on I was blown away by the clarity, crisp images and type and brightness. After much research I believe for the price it's the best monitor you can buy, especially if you wait for a promotion at Dell.
Pros Creamy smooth image, very clean whites, no color cast
Cons Ghosting in games/movies, better for design work
Summary I've been using this monitor for over a year for Adobe apps (and YouTube) and it's still beating out all the new DELLs coming into the office in the last year. Had a 2005FP for a while and now it's sitting right next to a 2007FP, and the 2001FP is still the Photoshop champion. The picture quality is gorgeous. There is no light falloff in the corners or at the edge, and white looks like white.
By comparison the 2007FP next to me is a greener shade of "white" and has a noticeable pixel "screen door" effect. Colors are harsh by comparison. I'm noticing tiny text in an AIM window is actually difficult to read, but not so when I move the window to this monitor.
I can compare this 2001FP to a Cinema Display and easily get lost in debating the fine details, but the 2007FP isn't even in the same league. Get a 2001FP for less if you can find it in stock!Updated
I switched to a different 2007FP, and it totally changed my opinion. Beware DELL produces inconsistent versions of their LCD monitors using panels from different manufacturers. I posted a review of the two 2007FP monitors I used with this inconsistency as the focus today.
Pros Price, 16ms,size,colors
Cons None yet then I can think of....
Summary What a beautiful monitor. It is replacing my older P991 19" Trintron CRT that is fading. (A great monitor in it's own right)
I have found nothing wrong with this new screen. No dead pixels, Colors are perfect, NO Blur effect. I am using a X800XL 256meg X16 Video Card. This I know makes a difference. The 16ms response time is at the highest I want it to be. 12ms would be better.
If you watch the Dell site and pay attention you can get this one at a good price. It is listed at $759.00 I paid $539.00 on sale.
My only regret is that I can not afford the 2405FPW 24" Dell monitor. Even on sale it is too expensive for me. That monitor is the ultimate. My friend owns that one and it is Jaw Dropping Beautiful. This monitor is just behind it and just as beautiful in pic quality just not widescreen.
Pros The size of the panel is awesome, the quality is incredible and it's Dell
Cons The USB cable that comes with it is kind of short, considering the pc is under the desk and such a 10' cable would have been better.
