I purchased the Dell 2407WFP to replace a 19" Samsung 191T. I was concerned that it might be "too big" but I got used to the size in about 5 seconds. Now the 19" 4:3 LCD, which I am now driving as a second display, looks small and dim by comparison. The Dell is very bright, with very vivid colors.

I do not see any dead or stuck pixels. I have viewed solid white, solid black, and other color images full-screen, and no pixels stand out.

This is a nice looking monitor which gives the impression of being well built. It isn't as heavy as I expected it would be, but nothing about it looks or feels cheap.

I am not initially impressed with the on-screen display, at least in terms of how intuitive it is to use, but it has all of the features you would expect it to have.

I will be putting mine on an "arm," but the stand is certainly nice enough, offering adjustments for height, vertical tilt, and the ability to rotate the screen 90 degrees to put it in portrait mode, although I'm not entirely sure why you'd need to put such a large display in portrait mode, as it will already display 2 full 8.5x11 pages side by side at full size.

I have not used the integral media slots yet, but this was one of the features I liked as I do use a few different kinds of digital media. Two USB ports underneith can be used for a keyboard and mouse, which is a nice convenience vs. plugging them into the back of the system unit. I haven't actually tried that yet though, and I'm curious whether Windows will recognize them correctly when they are connected to a USB hub.

Another concern I had was whether my video card (a 64MB ATI 9000 pro) would drive this large monitor at native resolution at full color.

I purchased this monitor a few months ago and couldn't be happier! The images on this monitor are simply stunning. With 24 inches, there is plenty of room to open several webpages or programs at once. The size is especially helpful when organizing and viewing digital photos.

Set up was extremely easy - I simply plugged it in to my video card and it worked immediately. This monitor comes with both a digital and an analog monitor cord. I have only used the digital feed, so I can't comment on how this monitor looks in analog mode.

So far, I have no dead pixels and the monitor works well. It takes up very little room on my desk compared to my old 19 inch Sony CRT.

I would definately recommend this monitor to anyone. I was able to purchase it for $850 including taxes and shipping. If you wait a few weeks and keep looking for discounts, you should easily be able to find this monitor for $850 or less.

24 inches of monstrous HDTV-quality liquid crystal... And its multi-format card reader is a bonus I never expected when I first won this screen from an eBay auction. This is definitely the perfect screen for wide-screen DVDs, 3D games, and (guess it) artistic manifestation!

It may not be HDCP-compliant (which is a really sad news, that means you can't play commercial Blu-Ray or HD-DVD discs thru its DVI input, thus forcing you to rely on the plain-old analog VGA input), but it's still worth a try.

And for those folks who are still breaking their heads trying to find out their Dell screens' stupid Service Tags: GOOD NEWS!!! I discovered where the heck is the Service Tag, at least on the 2405FPW: It's in the bottom left-hand corner of the back panel, right after the manufacture date. It's a lonely five-digit (XX-XXX) code which is not preceded by a "Service Tag" label. The lack of such label --and the fact that it's quite a very short code-- may be an explanation why so many people claim that Dell monitors don't have Service Tags. They do have; you just have to find them wherever (and however) you least expect them. :):):):):)...

I am a photographer, and in my home-built tower I have 2 GeForce 9800 GT video cards - each with 2 DVI sockets allowing me to support a total of 4 monitors.

For many years I have had 3 monitors connected.

Left landscape orientation- 2005FPW
Center portrait orientation - 2405FPW
Right Landscape orientation - 2408WFP

On the left I watch online video like Prime, Hulu and Netflix.
The center screen (2405FPW)- I use to edit photographs, since I typically photograph people and generate tens of thousands of runway shots from fashion week (99% photographed in portrait orientation).
The screen on the right (2408WFP)- I use for editing video, or if I need to work on a landscape-oriented image.

The best screen I have out of these is the older 2405FPW. Strange as it may seem, it is better than the 2408WFP.

When I purchased the 2408WFP, I was really excited to see what I thought would be a better image than the 3 year old (at the time) 2405FPW. Sadly, this was not the case. I need to explain what I mean when I say better, because what I need from a monitor will not apply to everyone in the market for a 24" screen.

I use a Spyder 3 Elite from Datacolor to calibrate my monitors. This ensures what I see on my screen will be displayed in print or online the same way I am viewing it in my office.

The 2408WFP is the least accurate of the two 24" screens. Because of this, I will work on a landscape-oriented image on the 2408WFP and then drag it over to the portrait-oriented 2405FPW so I can check the image before saving, or make last minute brightness/contrast and or saturation/vibrance adjustments.
