Default Re: Dell 2005FP (20.1" / 16:10) LCD for $559 Today only!!!

Not only no... But f*** no!

I found someone who e-mail'd me a 20% off coupon and between that and another $45 off coupon it cost me $594 shipped. Should be here next week some time.

Now... What to do with the 2001FP.

Riptide, your patience lasts about as long mine.

Two days after I got my 2005FPW, I decided (with the wife's approval, that's how nice this thing is), to order my second one.

Should be here soon, it's still in pre-production.

I chose the free shipping but it'd sure be nice were it to end up delivered Friday.

I'm not holding my breath though. My wife just might end up with my 2001FP now. Then I'll have two badazz gaming computers in the house. I must hold a LAN party soon.

I've made a decision. I'm going to keep the 2001FP. For a few reasons. For one, it's a good display and I don't want to lose any money on it when it's basically immaculate. Secondly the wife's computer is relatively nice (A64 3200+/9800XT) and needs a good display so I can have people over to play games with. Third, though I have a few personal friends that might want the monitor I've always regretted selling my old displays off to my friends. It's a long story.

/keeping fingers crossed I don't end up with to many problem pixels or a horrible backlight problem

I'd like to see a side by side shot between this and a 2001FP just to get an idea of how much of a difference there is in vertical space.

Unfortunately I have not. I placed the order the day before yesterday and it still shows as "In Production" as of this morning.

Looks like it'll be next week sometime and then I'll be out of town and unable to play with it.

Dell isn't bad but they sure take a lot longer to get on the ball than most other smaller companies when it comes to filling orders.

Blah, yea one thing though is don't believe the shipping estimate from Dell's website but wait till you get the actually receive a tracking number. With mine, Dell's site said the product had shipped same day but it wasn't until I received the tracking number to DHL that revealed it actually hadn't shipped until late the next day.

Anyways, let us know when you get it man

Yeah I'll definitely snap a few pictures and post my impressions in this thread once I get the display. Sucks that I have to wait a while for them to ship it but I have my 2001FP to keep me company until it gets here.

Pretty soon I'll have to invite a friend over for an overnight run of CS:S and UT2004. W/two legitimate gaming machines in the house I'm obligated now lol.
