I didn't get an e-mail. Check your status on the website. It says Shipped for mine, and is in transit to the local courier. Probably get a tracking # tomorrow. I'm glad I did 2 day - it should be here Friday.

I'll be genuinely surprised if your status doesn't change over to shipped by tonight. If it doesn't then it was pure luck of the draw that mine went out that quickly. Did you choose standard shipping or 2/1 day?

I hope you guys have better luck with this model. The 2005FPW was somewhat of a disappointment to me. It would be great if you early adopters could give us a detailed review on the black level and back light leakage issue.

Thanks

LOL, I'm not even sure if I should believe it really did ship until I get that tracking #. Dell might just be toying with my emotions.

I liked the 2005FPW - but I think the picture quality on my 2001FP even w/the screendoor was better. It had no backlight leakage at all. That said, for $500 the 2005FPW was still a good deal even w/the leakage issue.

I know I'll try to do a mini-review once it gets here. That said if it has problems out of the box I'm sending it back right away. I'll deal with a couple dead pixels not in the center - but bad backlight leakage on a $1100 display no way Jose.

I'll be sure to give my thoughts, but considering this is my first LCD, I won't have anything to compare it to.

I chose standard 'free' shipping.

However if you chose air that could explane it, because for me they are gonna try to freight it to the closeist dell warehouse (assumeonly only the texas warehouse got it first) then ship it out. But maybe for air they will ship it from any location to you.

Im trying to be patient now, however its not working!!!!

LOL, I'm wishing I did next day air now. Only hope it's not a big disappointment when it gets here. I haven't got any tracking info yet but I am hoping to receive an e-mail by tomorrow morning w/it. I'll be calling DHL and having them hold it @ the depot so I can pick it up.
