Default Re: ***Official Dell 2405W & 2005FPW Deals, Feedback Thread***

I'm looking in to buying the 2405FPW or the HP L2335. Have any of you tried connecting an external HDTV source for 720p and 1080i like an xbox and what were the results?

If you have links or photos of it in action please post. I googled it but most of the time the people have no idea what 720p is or just think the component cable alone makes it HD

Hey guys I just ordered my Dell 2005FPW today. I have a question though, it says my estimated ship date is August 17th. Why does it take so long to ship out a box... Can someone who ordered the 2005 or 2405 recently confirm or deny that it really takes that long?

Dell usually doesn't keep inventory. So if you order something that is not there, it can take a day or two or longer, depending on availability.

They will try to get it out to you ASAP but no guarantees.

No I'm saying do you really have to wait 2 weeks for dell to just ship out a box? Seems a bit too long. Did you all have to wait 2 weeks, it seems that the estimated ship date is just an automatic thing and the processing status is like their putting a system together for me. I'd think it would only take 1-2 days to ship it out.... not 10.

They are famous for this with shipping monitors. Odds are it'll ship much sooner than the estimated date they e-mail you. This is a frequent occurrence.

I got my 2nd 30" lcd tv friday, typically takes a coupla days.

Shipping time may be 1-2 days but it has to be in stock.

I am kinda thinking about getting a 30" 19:6 LCD TV to replace my 27" 4:3 HDTV. Which one did you get, and how good is it?

I'm about to return both mine

There is a new 32" coming out soon. The quality is excellent when connected to a digital source. The backlight on the first one I had was super, this second one is a little dodgier.

Also have my eyes on maybe getting the 51" plasma. Not sure yet.

The one I get was the Dell 30" lcd tv. There's a 32" one coming soon.

Yes there's a chance. Just don't pay any mind to the order status on their page, it's often innacurate and will sometimes say the order is in progress when it has in fact already shipped.

Hmm...the contrast ratio on the dell ones is very low though. (350:1) What is the response time like on those?

BTW, I wouldn't get plasma. After about 5 years they are junk.

You know, better yet, I think I am going to wait until a 1080p 30" LCD tv goes on sale. 1080p would be the sh!t.

Check out this one right here:

Awesome specs on that. Too much for me ATM, but a good deal nonetheless.
