Looks like BenQ FP241W is finally here.

Product Specification
"The world's first LCD monitor with an HDMI interface and support for 1080p HD video signals."

Well it might not be the first but hopefully it works better than Dell 2407

Looks like if everything works according to the specs this might be much better monitor than Dell 2407, at about the same price. Hope this will make Dell to come out with revision A03 to fix all the issue.

Many Dell 2407 owners still complain that color banding was only partially fixed in revision A02 and only in desktop mode.
My biggest problem with Dell 2407 is not being able to display 1080p, one day I like to buy the HD Blu-ray player and this monitor is going to be useless, even the 1080i will downscale to 720p

If price is right I might wait for the 30 inch BenQ FP301W, it should be available in retail Q3/Q4 this year
