Hi all,

As my old monitor is about to call it quits, I'm shopping around for a new one. Dell 2408WFP seems like a good choice. Seems to be an upgrade on the 2407

Is anyone here using it? Opinions?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Andrei

I use a 24" dell every day at work (2407 i believe the model is), I can't seem to adjust the monitor to get a nice balance between brightness and contrast, its rather frustrating. Obviously hasn't been colour calibrated in any way being a work monitor - this may help a great deal.

Based on this I don't think I'll be buying one when I eventually upgrade from my current screen.

I have 2 Dell 2407s and I'm happy with them. Do all my editing and screening on them. Not the best monitors probably but excellent value for money.

They do need to be calibrated.

Thanks for the replies.

"Excellent value for money" does it for me  Smile .

I've also read a couple of reviews and might just "bite the bullet". Have to do it tomorrow - a special offer expires...

Tim, when you say "calibrated", do you mean just using the program that you can download from this site or something else? Also, I know that the screeners use Dell monitors, but what model exactly, if it is no secret?

Cheers,
Andrei

Calibrated with hardware.

it's no secret. most screeners use dell 22" panels. Forgotten the specifics. Headscreeners use the 2407

My acceptance rate jumped by 20% when I got this..

My old Dell 19"CRT was a bit blurry and I always had problems finding sharp enough images to edit. Any amount of time looking at a blurry display always played with my eyes and I would have to limit my editing to 30 minutes or less.

The guy at the retail store told me that the LG was twice the monitor than the Dell LCD I had my eye on was. He was right!!

Now I can sit for hours and edit or play with my websites...best monies I ever spent!!! IMHO

I have my computer hooked up to my 42" TV with a DVI cable. Makes image editing a lot more fun. Check out some of the cnet reviews for good monitors: www.cnet.com

Good luck.

I Use an LG 24" and absolutely love it. Does take a while to get the setting where you want them cause there is a lot you can do but its one heck of a monitor after that!

Quoting Dbudd (Reply 7):

If you were looking for a 19" Dell monitor, the guy was probably right. All the 19" Dell's are TN flat panel type, which is pretty much is good for games and general use only.

The Dell 24" UltraSharp 2408WFP utilises a completely different panel type, S-PVA. They are great for graphic applications, and they are nearly twice the price of Dell 24" with TN panels. To get an S-PVA panel, you need to go 24" and higher - they don't seem to make them smaller.

The clarification of the terms TN and S-PVA:
