We have both the 2001FP and 2005FPW here and both have zero dead pixels. Dell seems to test their displays very well before shipping. Sure its a weird rez and you will have some small probs with older games that donít support widescreen but I have not seen a newer game that did not(HL2 is simply amazing in widescreen). A few improvements over the 2001FP are that it's brighter and more colorfull, it doesn't have the "screen door effect" (although that never bothered me with the 2001FP), its faster at 12ms response, and is widescreen
Good price too, I got mine on sale for $630 so this is a steal.
