Pros Great graphics and clear text at a reasonable price.
Cons Whats not to like. It does a superb job displaying business apps and excellent job with the graphics of the high end games i play. I have an XPS 700 with a Dual Core 6700, 2 gigs RAM (I am adding another 2 gigs) The 2007 WFP handles it terrifically
Summary Crisp, clear text grapics.Resonable price easy to tweak. A great display after years of Sony CRT's taking up so much space with just as great a display as i have ever had. Great price for a great monitor,Great with business apps and gaming graphics. Small footrprint gives me lots of extra space. Sleek and attractive. No more CRT's for me. Also, it is every bit as great as my Samsung flat screen display.

Pros Worked great till now
Cons Dell 6 months after warrenty refuses to fix
Summary I have had this monitor for 18 months and it has worked great. However, during the last week it has developed a short in the internal power supply which renders the monitor completely useless when horizontal. Clearly the short is a manufacturing defect but Dell refuses to offer any asisstance. Except to say, buy a new one for $400; EVERY 18 MONTHS?? I don't think so, be ware of this product, as it should not be shorting out so early in its life span.
Pros Good industrial design. Full viewing adjustability. Outstanding off-axis viewing, for an LCD. Large and bright display. Faithful reproduction of anti-aliased text. DVI cable was included.
Cons It's an LCD... Printed material is a quick-start guide, not detailed manual
Summary System I tested on was an Apple PowerMac G4 1.25Ghz tower running Mac OS 10.4.11, connected via the DVI. I've read some online reviews indicating that the maker of the LCD panel for the Apple 20" Cinema Display and this Dell UltraSharp 2007FPW are the same manufacturer. This seems about correct, having shopped/compared each. The telltale attribute is that seems as if there's some slight "screen-door" effect occurring; a little "grainy" look. In fairness, I'm coming from the "clarity and smoothness" of Sony Trinitrons and LaCie CRT's, as comparisons. LCD's are often beset by either resolution woes or off-angle viewing vagaries or color solarization issues; it's a game of trade-offs. For this price-point, this UltraSharp 2007FPW is a fair deal; short of spending four figures for a pro-line LCD by another maker elsewhere. Additionally, I'd previously purchased—and promptly returned—two Samsung 206BW widescreen LCD's from another Circuit City, too; they were simply atrocious. Their off-axis and color reproduction were terrible. In comparison this Dell is quite nice. Also, some Mac users have mentioned problems entering Sleep Mode with the Dell UltraSharp 2007FPW, but I haven't encountered any; my Mac automatically goes into sleep fine. This Dell UltraSharp 2007WPF is a good alternative for cost-conscious Mac users who're lusting after the 20" Cinema Display...
Pros Display is better than lower priced monitors. I have only needed to make adjustments once and have not need to mess with any of the settings since then.
Cons Price is attractive for the quality you receive. Not many places to see at a store to really appreciate.
Summary I use this monitor at work for several months now and I have really enjoyed its clean and clear display. I am considering replacing my dual CRT monitors at home for a couple of these. I do recommend this product.
Pros Sharp picture, Priced well, slim design
Cons Wish it had the SD card reader like the 2407
Summary After buying the 2407, and loving it, I finally upgraded my wife's screen form a old Sony 20' CRT that must have weighted 70 lbs. Well it was the best $250 and refurbished screen I have ever gotten. I shopped around and got the best deal from Dell refurbish center. Wife is ecstatic about he space gain and our cats can no long sleep on top causing all sorts of issues.
The screen is sharp and clear and came looking new even though it is said to be refurbished. I even got the 2 year warranty with it. I do miss not having the card reader but I have been ok with using the side USB ports and a card reader. As I still have not gotten my 2407 and my KVM to work well. I have not seen anything else out there for the price with the options this has and the clear picture.
