Since there aren't any dead ones yet out in the center area I'm OK with it. It's my opinion, but out of 10 of these displays I'm betting only one of them would be perfect in every way.
I'm most likely going to live with it. However, I want to see if I can fix the visual buzzing I get with the XBox. That's actually more of a dealbreaker, since I play a lot of console games.

LOL, one guy over on [H] returned his for a refund and already regrets going back to his 2001FP because it's so much smaller.

You mean you've never seen those thermometers before? They're kind of neat if nothing else. I like the digital one my parents have more, though.

I just want to let you guys know that I just set up my new 2405FP and all I can say is "DAMN!!! This thing is HUGE!!!". My initial report is that the black level is MUCH better than the 2005FPW or the 2001FP. Once I complete Riptide's tweaks I will give you a more in depth analysis of this beast of a LCD. So far I am very happy!

ENU that was one of the first things I noticed. This is the first time in years I've pulled a new display out of the box and actually been awed by the increase in size. The first time was when I went from a 15" Sony CRT to a 19" Sony CRT. After the 19" I went to 21" CRT's and LCDs... This is the first big leap in size in a long time. And boy it's worth every penny so far.

Just got my 2005 this afternoon. It's a A01 made in February. It's a little sharper than the solarism it replaced. The only problems is that the backlight was too bright. I set the rgb to 90, 87, 86 which seemed to help quite a bit, however color accuracy is probably off now. Any calibration advice would be nice.

overall, its amazing for an under $500 monitor.

I ordered one too and its coming next week. I couldnt wait any longer for dell canada to drop the 2405's price. So no dead pixels or backlight bleeding? Hope I get a newer revision too.

2405FPW users check out these 1080p videos! They look awesome on this screen.

I downloaded a few of those 1080p videos last week. I play them all in a row to show off the LCD. It's been a week since I recieved my 2405FPW and it's still impressing me. This is the best computer related purchase I've made in a long time.
