"Not an Upgrade from the 2405!"1.5 starson by sam_laby
Pros: It's got a 24" screen
Cons: 6-bit panel, Terrible Banding, Bad Color Repro, etc.
Summary: I currently own a Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW, and purchased the UltraSharp 2407WFP as an "upgrade" and was planning on using it as my primary display and moving the 2405 to the primary family PC.
That is, until I unwrapped this beast and tried it out. My first impression was one of terrible color reproduction and absolutely horrible banding. Compared to the 2405FPW, it strained my eyes, and everytime I went to a new webpage or viewed an image, my eye would catch the banding, and totally ruined my PC experience. You CANNOT do serious graphics work on this monitor.
I didn't even want to subject the wife and kids to this graphical nightmare, so back it went. I also thank God every day that I have a 2405FPW and wish I had bought two.
