Keep us updated.

Np, glad u found them useful. As for getting my 2405, its still hasnt happened. I ordered last friday as as of today its still in production They are taking forever to get these out the door so it seems they are selling very well. Also those those coupons are still good and u can get one directly from dell for $899 with free shipping. Also dell offers NO support to any monitor that wasnt purchased directly from them so beware of all the ebay/non dell deals as im stuck with a dead 1901fp

Just picked me up a 2001fp for $464. I'm really excited. I'll be using it for my architecture rig, or else I would have waited for the 2005fpw. Wide screen doesn't really matter with CAD. What kind of warranty do these things have? correct me if I'm wrong: 21 days over night replacement, no questions asked? Doesn't it also have a 3 year warranty for defects?

I got my 2001 FP. No dead pixels. No back lighting problems. Awesome monitor thus far.

You can adjust brightness by just pressing the plus or minus button on the front of the display. I suggest using your video card driver and setting a gamma of .9 and RGB settings in the monitor itself of 37/38/31 (RGB). I leave brightness at 27 points.

Playing games I noticed that they looked pretty bad. I mean like they were in 16 bit or something. I downloaded MonitorsMatter utility and in the color tests it looks like it really is in 16 bit. I mean it shows a box of rainbow colors(and it looks great!) but next to it is another box that should match but its doesnt. It definitely looks 16bit compared to the other and its exactly the problem i have with my games. It looks very pixelated or something. The program tells me if the boxes dont match my PC is reporting the wrong colors. Can anyone test this out? Its a great utility that can test many things and its called MonitorsMatter Checkscreen

Hey Nick,

Get the same thing on my 2405 as well - really dithered looking pattern on the left side of the display. Kinda odd.

Hey Dr. Nick I used that program on a pair of NEC Multisync FE1250+ monitors (not LCD screens) and I get the same results you are talking about. That program also states that I am running in 16bit color but the Matrox display drivers I am using are reporting 32bit color. I suggest you use a different app to test your LCD.

EDIT- It seems changing the cable has fixed all my issues. I should have tried that instead of just changing the monitor lol. I will also be keeping my old one since it has no dead pixels and the new one has 2 red ones. Thanks for all the help!
