Dell 1905FP

 

This 19-inch LCD has all the right features: adjustability, excellent image quality, and extras, such as USB ports. All that, plus a reasonable price, makes the Dell UltraSharp 1905FP a winner.

Good sharpness and color fidelity; highly adjustable; fair price.

Lack of advanced image controls; minor color problems in midtones.

The 1905FP is a fantastic, well-priced monitor for nearly all users.

Dell Ultrasharp 1905FP Monitor

 

Dell's full-featured UltraSharp 1901FP is a tough act to follow, but the UltraSharp 1905FP replaces it ably. Like its predecessor, the 1905FP includes four UBS 2.0 ports (two on the side of the bezel, and two in the back). It also follows its sibling's...

umption Tests For The Electronics and PCs You Use PC World's Test Center ran a series of energy use measurements for laptops, desktops, HDTVs, and LCD monitors. Here's what we found.

The 1905FP's pixel redraw rate of 20ms is an improvement on the 1901fp's 25ms, but it's hardly ground-breaking--and we couldn't detect any improvement in how games and movies looked. Still, this monitor's excellent image quality, great array of...

UltraSharp is no Overstatement!

 

I am the proud owner of a Dell UltraSharp 1905FP. I purchased it to go with my Dell Dimension 2400 Desktop about a year and a half ago. I ordered from the Dell website new, and received mine quickly, shipping included, for just under $500. ...

Sturdy, Nice Design. Great Picture and Colors. 8-Bit quality and no ghosting.

Heavy, Would rather it say "Samsung" than "Dell", but it's a very good product.

"Buy this not a "Short Screen""

 

I have my Dell 19" next to my new 20" Ultrasharp widescreen and I can't see why I paid so much extra for a "larger" widescreen. Yes there are some advantages in the widescreen but it is actually shorter than the 19". The wide sides are mostly a...
