"They FIXED IT!"on by zeeblade
Pros SUPER love this monitor
Cons So far NONE!
Summary Ok before I bought this I did read on Dell forums and the banding problem. Well they had a rev a02. Now for ME what I noticed was I tested for banding and found some. Well I started to play with the drivers for both ATI and Nvidia and made the banding go away. You will be very happy with this monitor.

Pros great inputs, great color and brightness. no dead pixils
Cons just the size is the smallest you want for the native 1680x1050 resolution
Summary I'm really not seeing what the banding issue was all about, mine never had that problem...
the older reviews about banding should be nuked due to the issue being corrected completely
Pros Good price, nice form factor, bright
Cons BANDING ISSUE, height adjustment too low
Summary Dell has a problem affecting 100% of these models. Severe banding with colour gradients make watching DVDs unpleasant and any graphics work difficult. Dell have no workaround and no fix as yet. It affects every 2007WFP sold so far.
Pros Nice contrast and brightness, all round good performer.
Cons Have not found any.
Summary I feel the record needs to be set straight with this monitor. At the sale price from dell it was the cheapest I could find with HDCP support. I do everything on my computer and have noticed no objectionable defects in the picture quality. The pictures from my digital camera and any gradient tests I have ran look as they should. I have no problem recommending this monitor to friends and feel any negative reports are unwarranted.
Pros Bright, sharp, lightweight, plenty of screen real estate
Cons none that I've found
Summary I've been using this monitor for four days and it's excellent. No stuck pixels, no dead pixels, color looks good. It's connected via analog, not digital, but it looks very sharp to me. No sign of any color banding or other problems. I wanted a widescreen flat panel to run Photoshop and do image editing and this seems to be just what I was looking for. Contrary to what some other reviews (elsewhere) have stated, the stand is more than adequate to support the monitor without wobbling.
