Root Access,

Turn on CLEARTYPE in the Display/Appearance/Effects/ panel ("Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts")

It is designed for rendering text on LCD screens in a better way that standard font screen smoothing.

Also, make sure your screen size is set to the monitor native, and you can always turn the DPI from 96 to 120 in the Display/Settings/Advanced/General control panel tab.

Those changes will see you never going back to CRT for your main monitor.

I keep a 21" hitachi on my main machine only because it allows me to play quake 3 online at a 120 khz refresh. ;)

If I could find an LCD that can handle that, I'd be sooooo there. :)

Hope this helps.

I'm really considering on buying a Dell 2007FWP. My biggest concern is that the wide resolution will rape my graphics card. I run a AMD64 3500+ 2GB RAM and an X850XT AGP.

Anychance I'd see decent framerates on Source based games, Doom 3, and BF2?

Well, I purchased the Dell 2007WFP and finally have the thing connected to my MacBook. It's a really great display and can be doubled as a display to play my Xbox 360 (didn't really take that into account until I received the monitor). No problems with it so far though I do have one stuck pixel on it.

mine has one stuck pixel too, Dells policy is that it has to have at least 6 to get a replacement but im really not bothered any more as the screen quality is superb and teh stuck pixel is only visible under black and faintly too so you have to look for it :)

The clarity of photos and colours in vividness is so amazing, just like a high end CRT and the angles are superb too so I'm not going to fuss over a stuck pixel because if they do replace it I could get one with clarity not as good as teh sample I have now! don't wnat to risk it and I have 3 years to play with it too!

The stuck pixel doesn't bother me either, it's on the side and isn't even visible to me until I try to look for it.

No VGA cable so haven't had a play with the 360 on the monitor yet but searching around, someone had this to say:

ard|Forum]It looks good with the Xbox 360 too, though the colors are a bit washed out due to the 360's VGA cable. That has nothing to do with the monitor. In fact, by putting the R,G,B all the way to 100 the Dell does a pretty darn good job of compensating for it, much better than the Viewsonic VX2025, which I also tried with my Xbox 360.

well after reading people getting 2407s for replacing their color banding 2007s, i figured id give it a go too! (my 2007 had banding as well, just never felt like calling about it)...

well i got a 2007 rev A03, and it finally has the banding fixed quite well (significantly better, almost non existant). i was actually surprised, because everyone who has gotten a02 still had it bad...so looks like they may have fixed it ... its good and bad, because i was hoping to still get it so they would bump me up too :oP

Thats the LG Philips S-IPS panel, the Samsung PVA one starts SM

;o

any idea how to get to that menu? i believe that is the 'hidden menu' ive been searching for :p

Found it!

1- Turn off your screen

2- Press simultaneously the 'Menu' and '+' button of the screen.

3- While holding the 2 buttons, press now the 'Power' button.

4- Once the screen in ON, unpress the 3 buttons.

5- Just press '-' button.

Mine says V1B18 RT803

Ok it appears scaling appears but only "slightly" on red. Although this could be parannoya.

Would like a guide to set this up or programme which people have used so i can get the best out of the monitor.

Cs max resolution WOW. Pictures :) . 6 Year old crt :( rubbish.

Also regarding Image Modes,

what purpose do they each serve ?
