"What was actually reviewed by CNET?"2.5 starson by idleworld
Pros: Early models have S-IPS panel
Cons: Terrible banding issues using DVI input, blurred text...
Summary: Sadly inferior to the previous model (2005FP) in several ways. Cheaper construction materials (plastic bezel lower quality etc). Stand although slightly more attractive, is not as practical to use (egg swivel function takes feet with it!). Now includes power supply and no longer an external brick. When this item was reviewed above, all stock allegedly had a flaw which produced unacceptable banding and blurred text (particularly with white text on a black background). The CNET test results indicate very good greyscale and text clarity results which is very odd as Dell have now issued a REV02 firmware update to address the aforementioned problems with previous production... Backlight bleed though appears to be better on the 2007FP. Sad that Dell appear to be undoing the previous goodwill felt for their own brand monitors. A lot of trust seems to have been squandered by cutting too many corners and misjudging how sophisticated and knowledgeable a lot of their monitor customers are/were... Cheap (in US) and not very cheerful. In UK this item retails at $860...!!!
