    I love my dell screen at work, but this would just be overkill for me

    They've been showing this monitor on their holiday TV ads. Right in the beginning of the commercial.

    I'd like another 2005FPW, that's for sure.

    If I was sticking with a similar system to what I have then I would consider this with a Card upgrade - but Im moving to the iMac in around mid-2006 so I would have no place for it.

    Not to mention how much this will cost!

    With the buying-spree EP's been on, I wouldn't be surprised if his next rig-pimping pic had two 30" displays on his desk. :D

    I was WARNED about buying "new toys"
    I even got the "invisible death ray beams" coming from my g/f when I told her I bought a new PSU to power my system...

    Keep in mind this was an ACTUAL Legitimate purchase, the PSU I had couldnt not power the entire system (too many things on my 12v Rail...

    AND... I owe her $4300.00 for Novembers bills, and I just bought her engagement ring so Im DEAD BROKE...

    I think two 30" displays is a legitimate purchase.

    I am waiting still to get more official word on the product and "test" it in our test lab sometime :D

    An xps 600 mated to this baby should do the trick, I think. Not sure how the processor will handle the resolution but I think it should work fine.

    You in the market for one? I'll buy your 2005FPW if the price is right.

    Nope, not in the market. I just want to use it. The ratio's are different than the 2405, I want to see what the actual visible difference is :)

    I like my 2005 and if I sell it, my brother has first dibs on it, he has been lusting after it since he saw it.

    Ratio is the same as the 2405. 16:10, as with any widescreen monitor.

    that things a beauty but to see the whole screen on my desk I won't be able to touch the keyboard i will be so far back. Man, I hope this means the 2405 will drop in price. I was in the market for one.
