Does anyone own a Dell Ultrasharp 2007WFP Monitor

  FatboySlim71 20:06 31 Jan 2008

I am thinking of purchasing a Dell Ultrasharp 2007WFP 20 inch widescreen monitor, I have read mostly very good reviews on it on the internet. However I have read of people on the Dell forum that are mentioning about colour banding and other picture issues.

I was wondering if anyone owns this model of monitor and if so what are your opinions/experiances of it?

Had mine since October 2006 after my Dell 18" flat panel gave up the ghost of 4 years. so far been very reliable with no problems to date, I only have onboard graphics and no dedicated card and had to download the Nvidia driver to get the 1680x1050 resolution needed. Colour is nice and crisp, I'm no gamer but play video media with no problems, blur or ghosting etc. Found the 2x usb ports very useful especially for my intergral 256Mb flash drive. Height adjustment is easy and firm at the same time as is the tilt feature on the tripod like stand which is very sturdy. Unlike my previous monitor very little heat generated.

Once driver was is installed, very little adjustment was needed to the screen settings on the monitor.
I paid a little over £300 new from Dell and IMHO very good value.

Using Windows XP home on a Dell Dimension 4300 assembled 2001.

Thanks bretsky for the detailed reply I really appreciate your help. I would be using a Nvidia 512Mb 8800GT graphic card with this monitor. Thanks for the help.

Ah, see what you mean about colour banding click here ......NO never had this problem, if I had a dedicated graphics card, this would have been a simple plug n play replacement.

I can imagine that the problem has now been rectified as most of the posts were from early to mid 2006, the below links seems to confirm this.

The monitor arrived today, and I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with it. I cannot believe how much sharper and brighter and how much better the picture is from my old 17 inch Sony TFT. Thanks very much to everyone that has repied I really appreciated it.
