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

Just your luck Rip, it'll come in while you're out of town

I'm still debating on requesting another replacement (see if backlighting is completely even) before the 21days runs out just in case they have a new Jan revision waiting to come out.

BrianG, I'll post some screens of Doom3 in 16:10 tonight.

Hey guys, I just noticed something with my cousins 2005FPW. When he first got it there was tons of leakage but last night when I went over the lights had definitely lost intensity and the monitor looked as good as mine, if not better so it got me thinkin that they might need some breakin in. But I'm not joking, it was like night and day from when he first received it. Have anyone here noticed it getting better over time?

I agree, you have to let them break in before a final ruling but mine was a bit different. The back lighting got became more even throughout the screen but, one dead pixel developed within several hrs of being used. Other than thats, its fine. Prolly gonna request another replacement next week to get on the list in case there's a new revision coming out.

What revision is your cousin's monitor?

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

Ok, got my 2005FPW Wednesday!

* Revision A01, January 2005.
* No backlight problem. (pretty uniform black).
* No dead pixels. (crosses fingers & hope none shows up)

This is a really sexy looking LCD, I just love the design. It goes great with my all black setup (case, speakers, KB, mouse).
My desk looks like it lost alot of weight, I have so much room now its great.

When I first turned on the LCD it was so bright! They have the Brightness set to 100.
I currently have it at 25 and its still bright but I guess coming from a CRT my eyes will just have to adjust.
I'm currently trying to calibrate the colors to get the right balance.

I've played HL2, DOOM3 & Quake3 (yes I still play Q3). Q3 @ 1680x1050, HL2 @ 1280x800, D3 @ 1280x800.
I had to add 1280x800 using NVidia control panel (65.73 Drivers).
HL2 is really impressive with this LCD, I spent alot of time just wandering around looking at all the sharp, detailed textures.
The sharpness is what really jumps out for me, I mean everything has so much more detail now. I'm noticing alot of little details in HL2 that I missed with my 19inch crt.

I'm very happy I made the jump to LCD.

DHL attempted delivery today but no one was home. Once I receive the replacement I will let you guys know if the new one has the leakage problem.

I just got a shipment notification this morning.

Unfortunately, I will be off on Monday (it's shipping to my work address and it's a bank holiday) and out of town on Tuesday.

There's a chance I can go get it from DHL Monday down at their office if it comes in then. Otherwise I'll have to be patient a little while longer.

How do I check what revision this thing is when it comes?

Awesome congrats man! Guess I'll be calling to get the new revision The monitor is very sharp as well as bright, the specs don't lie, heh. The Nvidia drivers have a sharpness setting within the driver cpl but have you tried adjusting the sharpness using the menu on the monitor itself? Its makes the text look even better. Make sure you run the "display optimization" wizard in the nv driver though and check out the PiP and PBP features if you get a chance or even happen to have digital HD cable.

Hey Rip, considering the delays you'll probably get a Jan revision but the easiest way to find out is just by looking at the sticker on the back of the monitor at the very bottom middle. The revision is noted above the barcode. Btw, you may wanna call ahead and just have DHL leave your shipment at the depot.
