Default Re: Dell 2005FP (20.1" / 16:10) LCD for $559 Today only!!!

After using mine for a few weeks now I'm happy with it overall. I can't really honestly say that the wide aspect has necessarily improved my CS:S play but it is nice to have when watching DVD movies and the response time is good for games. My A01 does have some backlight bleed in the upper right corner and one broken sub-pixel (stuck red on a black background only) so it isn't perfect, but then again I don't expect perfection either because frankly I've never seen a truly perfect display. Of the two defects the backlight issue is the most annoying but it's really only noticeable if I'm watching a movie with no lights on in the room at all.

I won't be swapping this unit out. I'm keeping it. What I might do is sell my 2001FP when the 2405FPW comes out for $400 and applying that towards one of those new ones. I think I will wait a couple months though and get a feel for them, perhaps allow Dell to come out with a new revision if they need to before I bite.
