"Compared to the 2007FP"4.5 starson by soupyhotness
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.
