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

Well, I just ordered the Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW. I tried to use a discount I saw mentioned in another thread but it had expired. They still had a small discount ($239) though so the final total ended up $1013. Hopefully I'll like it.

Edit: No matter what, I'm excited to see HDTV content displayed on it.

Edit 2: Does it have multiple connections so that I can have it connected to two different computers without having to go through a computer switch? I forgot to check on that but just assumed it would since my 19" LCD an analog and digital connection.

Yes you can hook up the analog to one PC and the DVI to another and then switch between them at will.

Congratulations OWA! I was thinking about pick one of this, but i'm worry about nat. res. Lock on and Pacific Fighters doesn't like 16:9

I have Pacific Fighters and I think I have a Lock On demo. If I'm able to get them to work at the native res, I'll let you know. The native res of this monitor is one thing I'm concerned about also but one of the guys in this thread said it could run at 1600x1200 without having to interpolate (just have black bars down the sides and that doesn't seem like it would be all that bad).

Well, if it is not a problem to take some photos how it looks, and tell me how it works, it will be great!

greetings,

Peacemaker.

Sure thing although I haven't received shipping info yet so I'm guessing I won't be getting it until sometime next week.

I bought the 2405FPW for my wife to do photos on and then liked it so much that I grabbed one for myself. You can switch it between SVid, Component, DVI and Analog VGA ins with the front selector. It's also great at displaying your TV signal in an overlay window while you web-surf or do work in the rest of the screen real estate.

Re: 1920x1200 so far I've had no problems getting most games to display native. BF2, Fear, Doom3. Even games as old as Neverwinter Nights and Planetside.

In a dark room displaying darks, I do notice some light bleed towards the bottom of both LCD's. Supposedly this gets less noticable as the LCD ages and there exist programs to break-in the switches to get rid of it faster. I need to read up more on this "breakin period".

I concur that anaylsis is true. Having used my current 2005FPW since FEB (sent 2 back before this one) the gray/black has gotten gradually better over time. Still highly recommend spending sometime to do a full calibration when you first get the monitor though. It makes the most difference.

POV is still broken in Battlefield 2. It will work in widescreen resolutions but it's a stretched image.

Dang, it shipped today. If I had known it would ship so soon I would have paid for next day shipping to get it sooner. They say 3-5 days to ship on the website so I didn't think it made any sense to pay for next day delivery. Oh well, I guess waiting a few extra days won't kill me.
