I tried searching on this monitor using google and other forums (even dell.com) but i cant seem to find much on it! How does this monitor perform? Can someone find info on this monitor? Im thinking of getting this monitor at a very decent price from a friend but i want to look up what im getting before i buy it! Any information will help. Thanks a lot!

I have ... several. I love them. Clear, crisp, ... bright, good contrast, ...

Caveat: I don't play FPSs, so I don't really care about the difference between 11ms and 10.5ms response times, or whatever the hell response time the monitor has :) The games I play are quite happy at 30fps, and a that frame-rate I don't see any ghosting, etc.

Shouldn't that be a 2005FPW? (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/ProductDetail.aspx?sku=20053YR&c=us&cat=snp&category_id=6198&cs=555&l=en&mnf=694&Page=productlisting.aspx)

Nope 2001FP is a real monitor. 20.1" viewable.

I owned one and liked it. Sold it to get the 2005FPW after which I upgraded to the 2405FPW.

I never had any issues w/response time or ghosting though like all LCDs it's there if you look for it. Mine came with two dead pixels. A friend ordered one and also had two dead ones on his. That is not at all uncommon.

Wow...according to Dell's website, the 2001fp is more than the 2005fpw! :wtf: That makes no sense...

I was thinking the same thing....
Anyway......I think you'll be more than pleased if you go with either the Dell 2001FP or 2005FPW. I luv mine

They change prices with different discounts and stuff, but most of the time they are the same.

2001FP= the 4:3 ratio of the 2005FPW

I acctually prefer the 2001. The 2005 seems too small. It's smaller than a 17" monitor height wise. Just doesn't seem right.

But the 2005 is wide screen while the 2001 is not....I would rather have the widescreen....

Promotions change from time to time, but a few months ago, the 2005 FPW retail cost fell below the 2001. The 2001 is being phased out, expect a new panel a la the 196FP to come out with really low response times.

The 2001 is 1600x1200 native
The 2005 is 1680x1050 native

The 2005 just isn't tall enough IMO, it's effectively a 1280x1024 monitor in w/s. (The 2405 is a nice option of course, but that's not what the topic is about).

Hope there's no bleeding/dead pixels. I have 1 stuck pixel in my 2005 and 1 subpixel is stuck in the 2001.
