Dell's UltraSharp 2405FPW widescreen display reviewed


We told you earlier this week about Dell's new lust-inducing 24-inch dell UltraSharp 2405FWP widescreen display-and what do you know, ExtremeTech already has one and a review of it up. So what do they have to say about 16:10 aspect ratio 12ms-response...

Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW


This gigantic 24-inch LCD offers top-notch image quality, multiple video-input options, USB ports, a bank of flash-card slots, and a full range of adjustability options, all for hundreds less than the competition.

Excellent image quality; wide array of video connections; flash-card slots and USB ports; highly adjustable yet sturdy; picture-in-picture capability; inexpensive.

Somewhat bland design.

Dell's 24-inch LCD delivers excellent image quality and a ton of features--wide-ranging video inputs, picture-in-picture, and flash-card slots--for a great price.

Ultrasharp 2405FPW


At its native resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, the $1199 Dell 2405FPW showed remarkable color and clarity. On test screens, text looked sharp, and images looked crisp and saturated. The 24-inch wide screen performed particularly well on our Web page...

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.

Overall, moving images looked best when played at small size in a picture-in-picture window. Despite this 24-inch wide-screen monitor appeal when used for office tasks, it won't replace a TV for full-screen DVD viewing

Dell Ultrasharp 2405FPW


As desktop LCD monitors become more prevalent, the idea of a massive display becomes more appealing. Although a 24-inch CRT display would overwhelm most desks, a 24-inch widescreen LCD monitor might fit in. The Dell UltraSharp 2405 ($1,199 direct)...

Impressive image quality. Exceptional resolution (1,920-by-1,200 WUXGA). Aggressive price. Built-in 9-in-1 memory card reader

Minimal picture adjustments in DVI mode. Takes up a lot of room for a desktop LCD

This is an astonishing value for a 24-inch, widescreen LCD. The Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW offers a bright, gorgeous picture with an impressive contrast ratio for an LCD, plus a pixel response time suitable for most games.

Dell 2005FPW


This 20-inch wide-screen LCD has decent image quality and lots of extras that make it a solid multimedia display.

Extremely wide screen; highly adjustable; PIP; PBP (picture by picture).

Pivoting software not included; no printed user guide; speakers cost extra.

The Dell 2005FPW has decent image quality and lots of extra features. Only serious graphics pros will be disappointed.

Review: Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW LCD Display


A good monitor can mean the difference between a good computer setup and a bad one. With LCD prices dropping every day it is becoming more possible to own bigger and bigger monitors. The Dell 2405FPW is not the biggest, but it is also not the most...

Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24″ Wide-Aspect LCD Monitor Review


The overall picture can only be described as amazing. All games were run at 1200x1600. I am pleased to report that I saw absolutely no ghosting or lagging.

Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24-inch LCD monitor Review and Prices


As 24-inch displays go, the Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW is practically a bargain (relatively speaking, of course). However, unlike many budget-price products, the 2405FPW won't make you give up features or quality in exchange for the reduced price tag.

Top-notch image quality and an abundance of features provide outstanding value. Multiple inputs and multiple adjustment options. Four USB ports for attaching peripherals

Doesn't include pivot software. Screen can be overly bright at the default settings
