The only reason I want this instead of just settling with a 2005FPW is because I see people who have had to trade theirs in like seven times or so to get a good one. Hypoxiaicon which number are you on like the third or something? That's crazy.

I'll wait for this monitor and see if I can get it, but first I have to get a Dell 700m..

Yeah, I own the 2005FPW and it does have a lot of problems with back light bleeding and dead pixels. I just hope the 24" is of better quality :unsure:

wow that looks nice! i wonder if you can switch off the card reader for people who want more than one of these monitors... yes, you could just unplug the USB cable but it'd be nice to still be able to use the USB hub part of it without having 8 card reader drives in My Computer

though i guess you could just disable it in device manager...

The native resolution of 1920x1200(b) helps ensure detailed images are crisp and clear and typical response times of 12ms© mean fast-moving content is displayed with minimal distortion.

The 24-inch display makes it easier and more affordable for customers to multitask by viewing spreadsheets and blueprints in their full sizes and positioning multiple applications or Web pages next to each other without losing content. It also reduces the need to scroll within large documents and toggle between application windows.

Picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP) modes(d), which can be enabled with the touch of a button, allow users to watch content from a video input and view their PC simultaneously, on a single display.

The 2405FPW features a height-adjustable stand, allowing the panel to swivel, tilt and pivot into portrait orientation. Its optional sound bar, which attaches to the bottom of the panel, is as space-saving as it is powerful, delivering 14 watts of audio output.

Technical specifications of the Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW include:

Wow, I've never thought it would be priced that.

Apple better do some price reducing if they want to stay in the game, and I mean major price reducing.

Now I might consider getting this.
