Default Re: Dell 2005FPW (20.1" / 16:10) LCD for $549!! (2/8/05)

You wont belive what happend.

Well, i just phoned them up and asked how much it would cost for me to upgrade to overnight shipping. And then they said 80$

I of course told them it was too much, and then they offerd to upgrade me to 2nd day for free, so i accepted. Then after a long hold they said they upgraded me up to 'Next day'. I have to im amazed with dell!!!

What department did you talk to? I think I talked to someone in order changes. The dude I talked to wouldn't bite. Still stuck with regular free shipping.

i used the 'inquries on an exsisting order'. However i have a bad feeling they got my email address wrong. The call was routed to india and i spelt it out 3 times but no email yet. However the odd thing was after they said they would give me a free upgrade, i had to answer about 20 survery type questions so maybe thats why they did it heh.

Yup, that's where I went, but I talked to someone with an American accent. Said he couldn't give me any deals, I'd have to talk to someone in sales. I probably won't push it, worst comes to worst, I'll have to wait an extra week. A very long week.

Edit: BTW, I noticed that the price is back to 1,199.00...so I'll be content with the $100 I got off.

I got a shipment notification in my e-mail box @ work this morning, but no tracking info yet. Says it shipped out on 3/1 and refers me to the website to get a tracking # but it isn't there yet. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it'll get here today and I can pick it up after work.

Called Dell and got the tracking information. It'll be in tomorrow. I'm following a thread over on [H] right now and it looks like some people will get theirs today - so tonight I should be able to view that and see some first impressions. I knew I should've got next day service.

Yup, I'm still stuck in preproduction as well with an estimated ship on the 7th. If I had gone to the office first thing in the morning that day instead of of not getting in until the afternoon, it might have shipped by now by gum.

Crap getting DHL to let me come pick this up is just a wee bit of a pain. They want me to call an hour in advance to have them pick it before I get there. Plus they won't hold it right away - Dell requires them to make at least one delivery attempt. And their system doesn't have it flagged to require a signature, though it might say so on the package itself. I hope they don't just leave it sitting on my front steps.

Well, I just set mine up on my lunch. To early to give much of an impression other than to say this thing is HUGE. Blows the 2005FPW out of the water as far as size goes. Trashes it. That was ofcourse to be expected.

I haven't been able to examine it real closely but so far I didn't detect any backlight bleed and bad pixels. Keeping my fingers crossed and tonight I will check it out further and give it a chance to warm up. For now I took a screenshot, only 1024x768. I hope it's OK to post it here.

The color saturation out of the box is definitely different vs. the 2005FPW. Seems real heavy on the white/blue. I'm going to play with that tonight a bit. Anyone who has got one so far have any settings for R/G/B that they want to share?
