I'm thinking of getting one of these monitors, and am searching for a good deal on it. The thing that makes me SICK, is that eBay has these monitors for reasonable prices (around 350) with anywhere from 60-90 for shipping.

I know this has been brought up before, but it makes me want to yack!

Anyone have this monitor yet?

Not 100% firm on the timeframe, but was there a reason why you got the 2005fpw rather than the 2007 model? Not much of a difference in specs or price from what I have seen.

LOL yeah, I'm on the way out though so it will have to wait until later.

I may even get two :eek:

I have a rather lucrative web project coming up, if they sign on I wanted to get a bigger monitor anyways. I do a lot of WTS work, having a second one would be nice :)

Get the 2407 or 3007's then
It is probably cheaper to get 2407 rather than 2007x2 - but dual monitors would have to be good. When I get to work later, going to do some research on the two and see what may be best. I think in the end I will get the 2007FPW, mostly because I'm going to start with one and get the second down the road. I have a 19" now, but surprisingly enough this will still be a sizeable upgrade :)

I did some digging on the 2007FPW vs. the 2005FPW, and found some juicy tidbits for those who may be interested :D

As Saz mentioned, 2007FPW offers HDCP over DVI (not to be confused with DHCP :lick:) which will make it ready for Windows Vista HD-DVD and other set-top box connections. Apparently the 2007FPW has more uniform backlighting, compared to some of the early 2005FPW's which had noticeable hotspots in their backlighting, leading to poor black levels.

On a more personal note, I read that the 1680x1050 in the 2007FPW is actually just shy of half a million MORE pixels than the current 19" LCD I have - WOW. Another huge difference, comparing what I have to this, is the Dell is 16:10 whereas my 19" is a soultry 5:4

I won't bore with many more specs that can easily be googled (as long as you aren't lazy like Saz :p), but that has made my decision easy. The proposal is in for the project, and if it's approved I'm getting 2 :smoker:

Which also means I will need a new video card. There is no way I'm going to put one of those on VGA (current card has one type of each head).

:D

Vga v/s Dvi will not make much iq difference to you if you are not looking to change your card immediately :)

Yeah that is also true. As another point I would have to also replace my KVM - so it may be best to stick with the current card until I start to notice it :eek:

I was thinking about ditching my KVM, since I have gotten rid of all my extra machines and just run VirtualPC, and wouldn't ever hook up more than one other computer anyways. I was talking to someone who has a 2005FPW, he said you can actually view both VGA and DVI inputs on the monitor at the same time, that's pretty sweet.

Madmatt - you ever tried that?

The project is at about 95% going to go through, trying to decide between ONE 2405 and TWO 2007's.

The Dual 2007's would probably be better, but there is a good deal on the 2405 right now for only $639 plus tax from Dell Direct. I know that is still a bit high, but cheaper than buying two of the others.

Hmmmmm....

Higher base res for the vertial. It might be worth it for you.

1920x1200 == 1080p support off the bat.

You can always run PBP if you want to have a psuedo-dual setup.

The 200FPW (and up) have four inputs. VGA = 1. DVI = 2. etc.

You can change the monitor to another input and it'll work like you want.

^^^^ That would be sweet Saz, thanks.

I'm looking hard at the 2405FPW online now, thing is sexy as hell.

If the deal goes through while the deal is still good, I may go that route.
