Gets a good review in this months PC Pro winning the 22" catergory and has been put on the A-List too:

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/labs/104802/dell-e228wfp.html

Very tempted but does anyone alse feel that TFT monitors are just gonna keep coming down in price?
#6
Been keeping my eye on this and waiting for it to drop below £250 as its the largest I can afford (the price jump for 24" is too much for me to justify to myself). Prices will keep falling, but I think this is the point for this monitor for a couple of months...
#7
Wonder how this compares to the 20007wfp. Guess its a comprimise between 20" and 24".
#8
The 24" shot up yesterday from around £571 to £759.05
The 20" looks good value, dropping from £331.35 to £265.79

but what's mostly catching my eye is the 30", which recently fell to £950.28 (from £1264.30)
#9
Eveything else is falling !! Why doen't the 24" ever come down to a sensible price ?? Its the one thing I really want to buy ...

re: 24" monitor

Me too - sucks doesn't it!

I already own one 24" Dell monitor (2405), but I've been waiting for almost a half year for the price of the 2407 to drop to a decent level - I totally missed my chance at Christmas when it was £529.10...

I was hoping that from the £566.64 price level (on 4th Feb '07), the next price change would be a drop down to £529 again :(

I am guessing the reason they bumped the price up to £759, is to make the 30" price (£950) look good... or maybe they're about to drop again...

like a blooming yo-yo

I'm tempted to just buy 2 of the 22" or 20" screens, but not sure if I have the desk space for a triple-monitor set-up

Hi SLK -- thanks for this. £516.99 for the 24" :) ... unfortunately it's out of stock. The Dell price at Xmas was more like £475 after Quidco, but might go for this if it comes back in stock.... would it be brand new or refurbished?

Also, someone mentions on the reviews page of overclockers that they sell Revision A03.. whereas Dell sell A04 ( ? )

Folks - the E228WFP is based on a TN Film panel which is rubbish for anything except games requiring a fast response. Its the cheapest panel you can get which is why larger LCDs are 'getting cheaper' - its purely that the low end technology is making its way into larger screens which were normally reserved for the better technology panels (i.e. VA and IPS based)

In short, with poor colour rendition and 'greys' instead of 'blacks', horrible viewing angles, it will be shockingly bad for graphics work or movies.

By contrast (no pun intended) the 2407 has one of the best panel technologies available, S-PVA. Also has a fast response, but also excellent for graphics work and movies.

Do your homework with the help of http://www.flatpanels.dk/panels.php and http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/

Hope this helps!

According to this site the HP L2045W screens I have bought are TN technology, but I'm delighted with them. I suspect the technology on matters if you are really into graphics.

The 22" Dell screen that is apparently also TN technology just easily won a PC Pro test and they take this colour accuracy etc into account. So I doubt most people would notice.

It's all relative of course. If it's going to be your only monitor, then you'll probably get used to it - but if you were to have it on the same desk as an old CRT monitor or another LCD panel of the same size that you bought, say a year ago (which would probably have been MUCH more expensive and based on an IPS or VA based panel) you would probably be very disappointed with the NEW LCD.

You don't have to be 'into' graphics (photo editing, design work etc. ) to appreciate the difference, for example watching videos or video editing would easily show its failings. It would be sharper however, something most people would be pleased with, for surfing the web or doing office based tasks, or playing games.

Just pointing out this to the folks before buying into something they may regret - knowledge is power and all that!

In a nutshell, these LCDs are coming down in price, because most are being sold with cheaper lower quality panels than they were a year or so ago at the same size (i.e. panels at 19-22" were mostly based on IPS or VA based, higher quality panels). Mass production also plays a role in the price drop, but not as much as most would assume.

Do you have any idea how this Dell compares to the HP L2045W ?

Very similar, as they both use the same 5ms TN Film panel technology.

The monitor is fine for text based work. Really like the larger desktop space. I was watching Star Wars Attack of the Clones on it but I didn't like that at all compared to my Sony TV (CRT).

I don't have much experience with LCDs but I think this one is very good.

I tried to install the monitor drivers but Vista won't let them install. Anyone else figured out how to do it?

Also how much difference does the DVI input make? Will it make more difference for gaming/video or text based work?

A couple of forums Stateside discussing the monitor:

Good user reviews on Dells stateside sites:

Interestingly I think it was selling for about £150 over there!!

Cheers.

Not really surprising, given the panel type.

I don't have much experience with LCDs but I think this one is very good.


Without a basis of comparrison, that doesn't mean much really, does it? :)

Just install a generic LCD panel at the same native resolution @60Hz

Also how much difference does the DVI input make? Will it make more difference for gaming/video or text based work?


If you have a DVI (digital) connection on your graphics card, using a DVI-DVI connection will make it much sharper all round - recommended for text/web based. However if you have a standard DSUB (analogue) connection on your graphics card and connect this to the LCD via a DSUB-DVI connection, this will make no difference than DSUB-DSUB.

I am looking to get this monitor and will be running it with my new HP DC7700 - which has the Intel GMA 3000 graphics controller. I am currently using a HP L2035 at 1600x1200 - which suits me fine. However, it does not seem like I will be able to make use of this monitors wide aspect ratio at 1680x1050 - as the chipset does not support this resolution.

I would like to know which video card you guys are using to get the best of out of this monitor? If I were to get the cheapest possible graphics card to run this monitor at 1680x1050 resolution; which one would you recommend?

Thanks

@ Johnnycab, 2 things:

1, Your current HP L2035 panel based LCD uses a MUCH BETTER technology than this particular Dell LCD, or ANY panel that uses the cheaper TN Film technology.

See the following links:
http://www.flatpanels.dk/panels.php - panel technology used in LCDs on the market

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm - panel technology overview

2. In terms of graphics card, any card based on an ATi or Nvidia chipset should support the widescreen modes. Select one in your budget that has a DVI connector (assuming the LCD has DVI connector - most do).


If you were intending to replace your L2035 with this Dell E228WFP, my advice would be not to - keep the S-IPS based HP L2035, its so much better!

l33r0y - Thanks for the advice. I am going to hold back and wait for the right panel - even though I might have to pay more.

No dead picks, Same hight screen as my 18.1 lg 2nd tft, to give you an idea of screen size, But the width is BIG ! but not to big as to be a pain, played all sorts of games with no ghosting at all, tiny bit of bleed on the top and bottom but not enuff to see less you look for it.

Feels really well made and looks good, Nice slim rim on the screen.

for £250 im very happy indeed:thumbsup:
#25
Just a note....

Mine arrived Tuesday 15th, very happy, no dead pixels. Slight (to medium) backlight bleeding.

I was reading around today and noticed the SM226BW. To cut a long story short I phoned Dell and told them I wanted to return the monitor under the distance selling act (you have 7 days from when you receive the goods) as I had found a better monitor for a similar price. I was offered a 10% refund to keep the monitor, I then asked for 15% but she came back saying she was only allowed to give 10%. I accepted £25 to be credited into my account tomorrow.

So this monitor with Quidco and refund money has now cost me, £202.67 :thumbsup:

It's 7 working days, starting the day after you recieve the goods, but yeah it's cheaper to give you 10% than collect it and resell as open box.
#27
From what I understand, under the act you would be liable to pay for the postage back to them (Dell may be nice enough to collect though). However it would still be cheaper for Dell to give you the 10%.

I'm feeling a bit chuffed with myself over this one. :w00t:
#28
Dell do seem to collect on DSR returns. Definitely a monitor worth £202.67.
