I know with the latest 77 drivers on nVidia's site there is an issue with gamma correction in the drivers. You have to do something weird to get it to work right, but I forgot what. Try another set of drivers.

I snapped. My 2005FPW will ship on or before 7/14. Got it for 35% off with a $65 stackable. Not the lowest price ever, but pretty damn close!!!

Fingers crossed for a quick delivery and no issues...

Edit: w00t!!! Shipped already!

:Completely random shot in the dark:

I have an idea to improve the selling potential of the dell monitors (it's an integrated add-on). Anyone have an idea if Dell gives cash/dell-credit for improvement ideas?

What is your (now) secondary display. Is that a 17" or 19" HP LCD?

Do a google search for stuck pixel and see if the torture test video will engage your dead pixels. You could also try gently pressing on them. Sounds crazy but I recall someone actually getting a couple of dead pixels to come alive. I dunno, worth a shot, right?

Unbelievable. I guess there is an advantage to living in Dell's home town. My monitor, ordered 7/8, was sitting on my doorstep when I got home. SWEET!!!!

Happy to report -> no dead pixels, no stuck pixels.

Wow.. it does fit right in there. So nicely in fact that I thought it was an option from Dell.
