Congrats on the 2405W's guys. Hope the color reproduction issues get worked out in the newer revisions.

The color isn't crappy IMO. Just not quite as rich as the 2005FPW. But some would say it's more accurate in that regard, and that the 2005FPW is the one that's being over-rich.

There is a guy w/a LACIE over on [H] who plans to tune his with it and let us know how it goes. I'm curious.

Also, if a person feels like playing w/gamma adjustments in software you can get around it quite easily. W/the ATI driver take gamma down to .7-.8 and it makes the colors nice and deep. But I hate software solutions, so I'm waiting to see if someone else out there figures out a way to do it via the OSD controls if possible. In the mean time it's not bad, trust me, you won't hate the colors or anything. And it is a 24bit panel.

BTW, thanks to the mod that renamed the thread. Good move.

Best case senario for me is they are shipping it DHL who's HQ is in ohio, and its gonna arrive at DHL before midnight so they can catch the plane that goes too indinapolis where it can then get sorted on a truck for monday woohoo! but it will probly be like tuseday or wendsay : (

Mine will be here Wed at the latest. I had em ship to work so I won't have to worry about them leaving a $1200 monitor on my front door step.

When you guys go hunting for dead pixels make sure to check against a complete white background as well as a black. Of my two dead pixels one of them is only visible on a white background and you have to look closely to see it because it's gray.

Dell says it'll be here tomorrow, UPS says the 9th. Who to believe???
Edit: Blah, I gotta go with UPS. Since they didn't pick it up until today, I won't get it until Wed.

Tomorrow is gonna be a long day.

Edit #2: Now the UPS site is saying it'll be delivered tomorrow. They are now messing with my head!

UPS? What shipping option did you guys choose?

I was under the impression they use DHL now. But maybe it's only for 2-day/next-day shipment?
