Dell 2408WFP


Dell's 2408WFP is the latest in the company's line of 24-inch panels, following on the heels of the much-beloved Dell 2407WFP (reviewed September 2006). Unfortunately for Dell, improving upon its predecessor isn't enough to push the 2408WFP above other...

Plenty of inputs; great grayscales; huge color gamut

Too saturated; less detail than we'd like

We applaud Dell’s 2408WFP for its efforts. While its saturation comes off a bit strong, we’d use this monitor on our desk without reservation—unless someone was offering us Samsung’s 245T too.

Dell Ultrasharp 3008WFP


Dell's jumbo entry in its Ultrasharp line of monitors, the 3008WFP, performs exactly as the company's marketing materials promise. This monitor truly “produces darker blacks.” In fact, we think Dell's underselling the device, because the 3008WFP takes...

Crystal-clear white; acceptable overall picture quality

Compressed grayscale; presets lead to color oversaturation

For gaming, the 3008WFP is as good as any other high-performance LCD. We also like the 3008WFP’s adjustable stand, its five built-in USB ports, and its built-in media reader. This is also the first DisplayPort monitor we’ve ever seen in the Lab. Too...

Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP


If you're looking to make the move to a 24-inch desktop monitor, put the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP ($689 direct) on your short list. Overall image quality on this versatile display is outstanding, and it offers an unusually large variety of multimedia...

Excellent color and text quality. Tons of A/V ports. Highly adjustable

Has trouble displaying the very darkest shades of gray. No auto pivot. You pay a premium price for this premium monitor

Solid performance and a vast array of multimedia features make Dell's UltraSharp 2408WFP the 24-inch display to beat.

Ultrasharp 2408WFP


The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP is a well-designed, fully adjustable 24-inch monitor whose ports and features may justify its premium price.

Memory card reader Vast number of inputs

Expensive No built-in speakers

Regrettably (but understandably) this monitor's high-end performance, myriad features, and input selection come at high price. At about $700, it's one of the most expensive 24-inch displays we've seen

Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP


While most early adopters and Gen Y-ers are used to the idea of watching TV on their PC using services like Bebo, Hulu, Joost or a million alternatives, now the rest of the world is finally catching up. Have yet to join the party? It's about time you...

Excellent picture quality; great for gaming; plenty of input options

Needs color adjustment out of the box; stand tends to wiggle

the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP display performed better than expected.

Dell UltraSharp 3008WFP


As each new succeeding generation of 30-inch displays comes out, you would expect new technology and lower prices. So far, you would be half-right—we've been getting new technology, but the price has been creeping up.

Ultrasharp 3008WFP


The $1999, 30-inch Dell 3008WFP beats other monitors to the punch as the first display equipped with the new DisplayPort connection. But its graphics performance, though respectable, trails that of other similar-size monitors. (For our look at other...

Very good text performance DisplayPort enabled

Less-than-stellar graphics performance Movie colors inaccurate

Six on-screen display (OSD) control buttons, which activate and let you navigate the easy-to-use display adjustments, reside in the lower-right corner of the monitor. The second OSD button is dedicated to the picture-by-picture function, which produces...

Ultrasharp 1908WFP


For a small monitor, the UltraSharp 1908WFP offers a lot of physical flexibility. While many rival 19-inch wide-screen LCDs and some larger models are content to offer merely tilt, Dell goes the extra mile to provide a particularly easy-to-maneuver...

Full set of physical adjustments Stylish design and integrated USB hub

Lackluster performance Poor graphics contrast

The Dell UltraSharp 1908WFP's offering of full physical adjustments on such a small monitor is attractive. But its text and graphics test scores, the lowest of the monitors we tested, make it less enticing

Dell SP2208WFP


Editors' note: While the 22-inch Dell SP2208 is still a great monitor, we feel the 22-inch HP LP2275 is the better value and to avoid confusion we are taking away the Dell's Editors' Choice as we prefer only one Editors' Choice per subcategory. In this...

Awesome overall performance; aggressively priced; VGA, DVI, and HDMI ports; added bonuses include USB ports and Webcam; steady base.

Stand doesn't let you adjust the height or swivel; vertical viewing angle is limited; glossy screen coating isn't the best choice for office use.

The Dell SP2208WFP is a versatile 22-inch display monitor that delivers outstanding overall performance and a pleasing design for a price that's hard to beat.

Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP


The Gateway FHD2400 may be cheaper, but the Dell UltraSharp 2408WPF display is the better value of the two 24-inch LCD monitors. It performed outstandingly in our labs-based DisplayMate tests, delivering quite possibly the best image we've seen for DVD...

Strong overall performance; its tried-and-true design is both aesthetically pleasing and practical; video connections galore.

Cool preset mode is too blue; no digital audio connection.

The 24-inch Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP display delivers across the board in performance, design, and features. It excelled with movies and games, making it not only an excellent choice as an entertainment display, but also great for everyday Windows tasks.

Product Specifications

The UltraSharp 2208WFP features Dell TrueColor technology for better color representation resulting in deeper, more vibrant reds, greens and blues. With a dynamic contrast ratio of 1000:1 blacks are darker and vibrant colors pop off the screen for life-like movies, photos and games. Widescreen means cinema-style viewing and an improved overall multimedia experience. Widescreen provides you with more screen real estate so you can get more stuff on your screen at once while the flat panel design makes sure not to take up very much space on your desktop. Whether you are working or playing, wider and flatter truly is better. Everything looks better in HD and the UltraSharp 2208WFP with its 1680 x 1050 resolution delivers high definition clarity right to your desktop. The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) with HDCP, a feature required by Blu-Ray and HD-DVD players, enables playback of high definition digital video audio with no loss in detail for life-like clarity and amazing detail. UltraSharp monitors are designed to fit just about any situation and give you a comfortable viewing experience. Adjust the height, tilt the panel forward and backward, swivel it left-to-right, even pivot from landscape mode to portrait mode. The UltraSharp 2208WFP adjusts to fit your optimal viewing position. Four convenient USB 2.0 ports help you avoid the hassle of running out of USB ports on your PC or reaching around the back to access them.
