Couldn't do with anything less now. :thumbsup:

i have a dell, super monitor. hot!
#7
Jeeesus.

Alright. I had a 26" hdtv before. This is two inches smaller, comes with HDMI, DVI AND VGA....

It's 1080p... It's a gamers dream really!! It'll do as a TV as well if you have sky hd or virgin+

Seriously. That's one hot wee monitor.

Why is the "TECH SPEC" tab on the OP's product link greyed out? Anyone got a workable link to the full spec of this product?

It isn't greyed out.. click on it.

Yep for the last couple of weeks I've been considering getting this monitor when I saw it on the Dell site @ £250 mark. Then again a couple of days ago on ebuyer. Only thing putting me off is the size might be overkill, well considering I'm currently on a 15/16in crt dell box "heater". So was thinking a 20in would be fine but looking @ the price difference between 20in monitors and this 24in its not that much. So I'm really tempted now.

Anyone tell me about the quality of the build, panel and if the picture quality is really worth it.

Nowadays they are invading the 24" monitor realm with cheap TN panels, bringing the price down and together with it the picture quality. If, you don't mind the not so sleek design of eBuyer's Digimate 24", go for it. It uses a better TN panel (LM240WU3(TN)) which gives 92% gamut (which is only 190quid delivered). This dell's one only have a 72% gamut panel (M240HW01).

As someone currently using a 24" I constantly find myself wishing for more space. It's big enough that you can't use maximise any more but slightly too small to properly use some types of windows side by side (A4 documents are ok for example, but 1024 width webpages end up being fitted to width in opera).

Sadly, the next resolution up is 2560x1600 which would be lovely but screens using it start at £800. Hopefully with this new fashion for 16:9 screens we'll see a nice 2048x1152 screen. (or even a sub-£500 2560x1440!)

If you were coming from a good CRT you'd probably notice all the faults in LCD technology but it sounds like your CRT might be past it's sell-by date so you'll probably just notice the obvious stuff and it should look generally good in comparison to your current monitor.

Avoid wide gamut (i.e. non-72%) screens, the vast majority of pictures on the computer are designed for 72% gamut (as that's the sRGB standard) and home wide gamut panels don't add colours as they should (they can still only display 64 colours per subpixel) they instead replace the existing colours with the new ones (which are spread over a wider range) and as a result colours are shifted and no longer accurate, faces tend to get redder for example.

Software support is slowly coming in but I wouldn't buy a wide gamut panel if there's another one with the same features for a couple of years yet.

Don't forget quidco. I have 2 x 19inch dell panels, wondering whether to have this in the middle, decisions decisions
#16
Price just keeps getting lower, what a bargain! Dell make the best monitors imo, very tempted by this but still not sure if its worth the upgrade from my 22" Ultrasharp (which at times still seems quite large!) Hot from me, have a feeling it wont stay this cheap (or in stock) for too long..

Already using a Dell 24", I have no room on my desk but I want another just because thats so cheap lol

We have a couple of 30" 2560 x 1600 mother'uckas at work, and they are beautiful to use, especially with a couple more tilted widescreens either side. Ace.

I don't understand people who think this is too big. It's really not, it's something you grow accustomed to very quickly. Excellent deal, I would snap it up if I didn't already had a year old 22" samsung. I can't quite justify the upgrade, and my desk won't hold them both!
#19
Just to say, I have a Digimate 24" (which is a great panel).

However instead I wish I just bought another 19" lcd to go with the one I gave away so I could use them side by side. Splitview software is ok (which auto sizes windows for you), but it isnt the same as having 2 physical lcd screens.

These cheap TN panels look like ****. Waste of money.

If you have such a small screen today you need to be sure your graphics card is up to running a screen with such a high resolution, especially if you plan to do any kind of gaming.

Attempting to build a pc so buying it bit by bit, so far have the case, psu, case fans, speakers, mouse, keyboard, a blue ray dvd drive, powercolor HD3850 512mb graphics card and X-Fi Platinum - Fatal1ty Champion Series sound card so want all my parts to be hd ready etc. Currently deciding on motherboard, processor, memory and operating system. The pc will mostly be used to watch dramas/movies, artwork - graphics, photography etc then the occasional game or too.

The reason I was questioning the size was that the 24in would be fine if I'm watching a movie 6-10ft away but usually up close to the screen 1ft-3ft away would it be any benefit.

I was thinking of getting this monitor or DELL SP2009W £160 or Dell UltraSharp 2009WFP £178 or E228WFP £200.

I got a Dell E228WFPc today off Ebay and it is in excellent nick, but it isn't as good picture quality (IMHO) as my Viewsonic VA2216W which you can still find out there for £139. The Dell might have DVI input but it is a little overbright and undercoloured. I've played about with all the settings, but it still isn't as nice as my cheaper monitor, so I might swap them back over and let the kids use the Dell on PC#2.

Don't get why it's so HOT, only a few £1 more at ebuyer? seems to be an average price

A 9800pro has dual-link DVI so it'll support a 30" screen with 2560x1600 resolution, a 24" is going to pose it no problem.

I believe even the card is replaced the Radeon 8500 supported 1920x1200 (and this is lower).

I believe the 9600pro supports it as well as the FX5500 but I've heard that the FX5200 doesn't.

These are five year old cards, any newer discrete cards should have no problems.

Integrated graphics from the last couple of years should be OK (especially if it's got DVI) but older than that I would check to make sure.

This doesn't stretch the picture like a larger TV would, all the text is the same size as smaller screens but the extra size gives you room for more of it, and more program windows. This is an odd 24" as it's TV shape rather than the normal widescreen shape and it's a lower resolution than a normal 24" so compared to a 20-22" this mostly has more room at the sides rather than all-round.

If you're doing art then you could use the extra space at the sides could allow you to have wider palettes or maybe stop them overlapping your picture so much depending on what aspect you were working in.

I thought most 24" screens are 1920 x 1200, so this one has 10% fewer pixels. Why are people so keen on it? It may be fine for videos, but it seems a poor idea for general office work, where the idea is to see two A4 pages side by side.

I agree; these are cheap because you are getting less real estate. The vertical resolution of 1080 isn't much more than for a non widescreen 17" TFT (1024). I'd prefer 16/10 for a monitor.

Is this thing all singing, all dancing with all the bells and whistles?::?

HDCP
1:1 pixel mapping?

wow lol I think ill stick to my 22inch fujitsu siemens lcd this would be overkill for me lol
#36
I mainly watch films on my pc and surf net and play the 360... I ve currently got a AGP graphics card nothing special with DVi, would i notice a enormous difference?

I have a 20" sammy 205BW which i love but fancy some extra real estate... would this be worth the upgrade.

Sold mine to get the Dell ... and I loved the fuji ....

I've used the 2409 for a couple of hours and the biggest problem i've had is finding decent hires wallpaper !

some quick comments so far ...

Pro -
Beautiful !
Good quality Picture for the price
Good inputs
ahem .. divxs look good ....
excellent looking onscreen menu

Con -
If you don't have a videocard capable of 1920x1080 then you will suffer from Stretcho-vision
veiwing angles a bit off if you arn't infront of monitor ... i.e. standing above it


Overall
Brilliant for the money, its a tn screen - and ? I knew that buying it as its a budget monitor, but its exactly what I was after price wise.
#38
Im looking at getting this moniter for the 360 could some one give me the measurements width and height of the screen as some moniters in the past have been over stretched width ways.
#39
Smoking HOT for me!! I have HP 20.1" Monitor now.. have been disappointed since it doesn't support the PS3 i got a month ago...have been thinking if I should get a new lcd tv for my gaming.. I'm thinking of getting this.... on my desktop i mostly watch movies & surf the net.. and sometimes photoshop!!

And my new PS3 has been sleeping all day n night in August & September.. very tempted to get this hotty!! Thinking if I should sell my current 20" HP Monitor and upgrade to this beast??!!

Look at the page for it, it says in the tech specs it has HDCP.

1:1 pixel mapping? Probably not, but the biggest use of that is to stop 16:9 1080p sources stretching to 16:10 screens and that isn't an issue here as this is a 1080p screen.

The biggest thing it's probably lacking is a decent stand, it doesn't mention any adjustability at all on dell's website.

The other thing it's lacking is dell's zero bright pixel guarentee as it's not part of their ultrasharp brand.
