Hmm...not what I like to hear My 2005FPW has fantastic picture/color quality, no dead or stuck pixs and bleed through is there but has never effected my viewing. I bought it at a very discounted price direct from Dell as I've done with the E228WFP, so I'm hoping I get the same positive experience using the new monitor. If not, then it goes back and I try something else. My "mother-in-law" needs the 21" CRT on my #2 system, I WILL find a a new monitor so I can move the 2005FPW to #2 and give her the CRT

Yes, it came with software called "EZ-Tune"...and I could get it dialed in to look decent on the desktop, but then those setting were totally off for games. Then in games no matter what I did, darks were over dark and lights were over light.
