In this long tread at Dells Monitor Forum (http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dim_monitor&message.id=63795) " dctokyo " from Tokyo claims he is a new proud owner of a Dell Ultrasharp :) 2407WFP (version A03) monitor.

The forum Moderator "DELL-ChrisM" (http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dim_monitor&message.id=64176) has not received any notice of a A03.
He is meeting the "Dell's Product Group" tomorrow (31/08/2006) to find out if such version exist and if yes what has been fixed in the new version plus if anybody is going to be eligible for free replacement.

So guess we will find out soon what's really going on.

Heinz68 can you try to keep us up to date on what ChrisM tells the Dell forums after his meeting. I know a few people that are still crying about the defective component inputs on the 2407WFP.

Sure I will, I'm very much interest in the news myself since 2407WFP might be my next upgrade, great value especially on sales.

I'm now looking for a new large widescreen monitor for such a loooooong time it's starting to drive me crazy.
Not getting one it's becoming almost as bad as not having sex for couple days :)

I like the Dell 3007 monitor but what worries me it's the constant video card upgrade probably SLI or XFIRE to keep up with the new games.

With some games and my present 7800GTX I might get a stunningly beautiful slideshow :) on 3007 native resolution

My next choice is Riptide highly recommended Westy LVM-37w3 (1080p) much more easy on the video cards.

Unfortunately the only one retailer having the Westy product in Canada is BestBuy and they still only sell the old LVM-37w1 model and it's way overpriced compare to BestBuy US prices.

One thing I have to give Dell Canada a BIG credit, they very much keep the same prices like Dell US, only the sales are most times on different dates.

Holly crap. I've just ordered a Dell 2407 Rev.A02 this week.
Haven't shipped yet. Gonna e-mail them to hold on a bit.
Thank you, Heinz68.
Haven't yet read the thread at Dells Monitor Forum. Gonna read it now.

About the Dell 2407WFP Rev.A03, I asked www.apparelandtech.com, and they said:
- They still have about 9 of the A02 units.
- The last new batch they received are all A03.
- All new shipments from Dell USA from now on will be the A03
- Early next week a bulk buyer will take 30+ units from them, so their stock might run out.

So, instead of the Rev.A02, I told them to ship a Rev.A03 for me, today.

Still not a definite answer but here is a quote by "DELL-ChrisM" the Dell's forum Moderator (page3 reply 26) (http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dim_monitor&message.id=64176&page=3)

We are still in discussion. Please be patient.

I believe this is a good indication that the version A03 is out otherwise what would they be discussing also now more people in US and Canada are reporting that they had received version A03

Another thread about A03 here

My Dell 24" LCD 2407WFP 1920x1200 has arrived at September 6th. It's an A03 revision. :)

Yes few people posted at Dell Forum that they received A03 revision and the vertical banding is gone and some posted pictures to show.
Here is one comparing the 2 revisions: 2047WFP A02 (left) vs A03 (right) (http://www.dropshots.com/day.php?userid=169814&cdate=20060828&ctime=140357), posted at Dell Forum by

What is strange that "DELL-ChrisM" (Reply 39) (http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dim_monitor&message.id=64176&view=by_date_ascending&page=4) the Dell forum moderator was informed by Dell's Product Group.
"The only changes made to the 2407WFP A03 were language fixes in the OSD (On Screen Display)."
Sure one issue nobody complained about.

Only speculation:
Few posters at Dell forum believe that Dell wont admit what really was fixed in version A03, so that Dell does not have to exchange all the A02ís
