Oh poop. Maybe I should've waited a couple months. Supposedly Dell is introducing this whopper (2405FPW) 24" display in late February. I don't have any other specs right now but I do have this image.

I'm sorry to say that Dell will not honor anything not bought directly from Dell online or Dell in store.

I think it's transferrable. I've been told it was by their reps before. Perhaps Sazar can comment.

Well, I got my 2005fpw today. $605 on ebay and came directly from dell, I can't argue with that It's the A01 revision that's made in January and there is no backlighting and only one dead pixel...Color and picture quality I'd have to say that it doesnt quite live up to my Viewsonic P95f except for the fact that text is crystal clear. To me, the games just look a little fuzzy, but I haven't fully calibrated it yet either. You guys know of any good calibration programs or links?

P.S. The movies do look incredible though!

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.

I can definitely smell Semen on this new display in someone's house in March.

Too bad you'd need nothing short of a SLI rig to run it at acceptable fps at native rez 1920*1200.

Is it really going to take that much more horsepower to run it vs. 1600x1200? Percentage wise I wonder how much more pixels that is. It can't be more than another 20% or so I would think. If you have an XT/6800GT or better I think you'd be OK with today's games.
