I don't have a camera with me at work. I darkened my office as best I could, but it wasn't 100% dark, but as far as I can tell there is no noticable light bleed. As I said my office couldn't get 100% dark, so there was some refelction, but compared to monitors with obvious bleed, there was none apparent, just and overall even very faint screen glow at a dos prompt. In windows blacks look blacker than the 243T. The 2D picture quality is quite stunning. If you grab a window and shake it around you get some minor ghosting, but again less than the 243T or other 25ms monitors. Not bad at all really. Distinctly brighter and more vivid picture than other large high end LCD monitors I have used lately.

Alos seems like zero stuck pixels but I'm still searching.

I also have the Samsung 243T and you do notice the improved contrast right away. I can't exactly game here at work or watch DVD's, so that will have to wait. Sorry no pics, but you have all see what the monitor looks like earlier in the thread. The base is nicer than the 243T in my opinion.., but it seems that the ceter top tilt position of the monitor looks ever so slightly off level. no biggie.

Cancelled mine and reordered using hte coupon.

New shipped price is $1066.00 and the ship date is now the 17th instead of the 23rd. Wish they would go ahead and ship it already.

Database is very easy until you get into topics like normalization using Third-Normal format and Boyce-Codd Normal Format (BCNF) ... awful memories :)

I think he meant the coupon not hte. And it was the 75 off I guess....

I tested it at work on a 9800 Pro, but at home I use an 850XTpe on a dfi Nf4 :)

Can you get the native res (1920x1200) via DVI?

btw, this monitor is now on the UK website for anyone who are too scared to call Dell...

I'm typing this on my new monitor (?????) :D

Clear as a bell, massive display area, and as far as I can see, not a dead pixel in sight - oh and can't see any bleeding either.

Would have posted earlier but TNT didn't deliver until 5pm - Grrrr.!! and I had stuff to do this evening.

Well packed, solid stand.

Noticed on the label on the box that it was a revision A01. Wonder what they changed? Possibly to a later versin Samsung panel from reading the conflicting bits of info regarding the 2405FPW.

Menus fairly easy to get on with - I put up with Iiyamas for years ;)

Ghosting, I hear you ask. Well yes and no.

My GF4600 running at 1920x1200 DVI and supporting a 1280x1024 monitor off the other DVI output seems to tax the card and cause some ghosting. Virtual Pool is great for testing LCD response.

I reverted the card to a spanview (1 desktop over 2 monitors and response picked up (running the 1920x1200 panel as a 1280x1024.

It also lags slightly when opening the "Start" menu which also points to the graphics card running a little short of breath.

Haven't even tested the "Advanced features of the monitor yet. Should be interesting.

Worth the money? (?862 delivered 3yr replacement warranty in UK).

:yes:: :yes:: :yes::

Tony.

Over on the WSG forum, it is being said this panel is an 8ms panel. One of the guys is showing a pic of it showing the Samsung part number. When looking up the Samsung part number, it says 8ms.
