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

I went ahead and ordered a 2005FPW but it ended up having horrible back light leakage on the upper right hand corner. Do any of you guys know if this issue has been resolved yet? Do I send back this one for another? I don't want to ask for a new one and end up with a FP that is worst than this one. What is going on with Dell's QC?

Dell has an no questions asked return policy for the first 21 days after purchase. Juse call the tech support number and request a replacement and depending on availibility, it will be overnighted to you. You just ship back which ever one is worse.

Quick question though, which revision did you get? The newer Dec revision is the one not likely to have issues.

Man ordering one of these displays... it's like Russian roulette. Finding a perfect one is damn near impossible... finding one you can live with might just end up being difficult.

My 2001FP has perfect backlight uniformity. A little leakage I can deal with... But some of the descriptions I've seen online - well it isn't pretty. Hope I have better luck than they did but I'm not holding my breath there.

I ordered via the web. I guess people that got theirs shipped same day were just lucky to have ordered at the perfect time.

I see a few here at work and at my friends place... they all look great... no problems with any components

-edit-

one thing to keep in mind everyone getting the 2005... ENSURE your graphics card supports the native resolution in question...

afaik the native max res == 1680 x 1050..

make sure your gfx card CP has that in there, or get drivers for it if not present...

Well hopefully I get a good one then. We'll see... I'm impatient to see how it looks though. Must...learn...patience.

What the hell is 'backlight leakage"? I mean how do you know if your monitor has this problem?

Simple. Set your screensaver to "blank" and press the preview button. Turn your lights off in the room, keeping it completely dark so as to avoid washing out the screen at all. Take a good look at the blank image. A little milky white glow over the entire screen is normal. What you're looking for is a bright area, usually in a corner, that will appear brighter than the rest of the screen.

That is backlight leakage.
