Re: ***Official Dell 2405W & 2005FPW Deals, Feedback Thread***
Turns out the shadow effect is a problem with my video card (old school GeForce2 GTS). I switched the display so it was connected to my laptop, and everything worked fine.
I guess I'll request a replacement. I'm just afraid I'll end up with a unit that has dead pixels or severe backlight issues. I guess we'll see what happens.
Thanks for the input.
