I love my companies buy 2 get 1 free on LCD's from Dell. I just got 3 2005PFW's for the price of $354 each. That's shipping and taxes included. They are certainly sweet!

finally got mine! :D

its great, SLIGHT back light bleeding but really i see that on almost all LCDs. Doesn't bother me a bit, i think I have one dead pixel. Otherwise great deal for less than 400 bucks USD.

I could ask for another, but i think it could be much worse.

Check out some pictures:

I now have this monitor and i absolutely LOVE it! Since the 5G ipod doesnt come with a charger i had to leave my computer on to charge it, but since the display has an integrated powered USB hub I can charge my ipod right off the monitor without turning my computer on! NO dead pixels too :D

wow i didnt even think about that. good idea!

I bought one of these around christmas for just shy of ?400 (uk) including shipping through a 3rd party supplier. Definitly one of my best PC related purchases last year.

The only problem I have is the rest of my hardware isn't that great at providing wide screen resolutions in games. I'm gonna fix that next month tho.

I am purchasing one of these at the end of the month. I was going to get the 20inch normal (2001fp) but, this review and a cnet one decided it for me

Apparently the 2007 and 2407 are due this week and for the same prices as the ones they are replacing. Sweeeet

Ordered a 2007WFP :shiftyninja:. I just hope it isn't nearly as defective as the 3 2005FPW's I went through before giving up on that particular monitor.

I bought one a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't be more happy. I origanally bought a Samsung 940B 19" and then the 2005FPW went on sale so I bought that while I was waiting for the Samsung to be delivered. Good thing I did too. When I got the Samsung it had severe backlight bleeding. When the 2005FPW came I brought the Samsung back.

My 2007WFP has two stuck pixels, one green and one red, and is very very blurry even over DVI. I have never seen an LCD this blurry over DVI, so I am thinking that mine is defective. It's too bright out to truly test the backlight. But by shutting my blinds and putting a blanket over myself and the monitor I can see some bleeding in both of the upper corners. Similar to the spotlight effect on the gateway and samsung 215tw. If this isn't a defective monitor then the blurriness is really disapointing.

WOW. HL2 looks really nice on your comp. Reflections, shadows etc. On my comp, it looked like crap. :(

My 2005FPW is great except for the propensity for screen burn. Use a screensaver or better yet, set your display settings to turn off the monitor. The burn seems to fade over time though so hopefully it's not permanent.

I have also this morning noticed what looks like a large smudge down the left side of the screen about 2cm in from the bezel. On a medium grey background, it looks like a darker grey smudge running most of the height of the screen.
