A fantastic display. I love mine and I paid a lot more than this for it. The built-in card reader and USB2 hub work superbly. Even though it's a 24" model, it has a tilt and swivel stand which would allow you to use it in portrait mode, but seeing as it has a native resolution of 1920x1200 and you can view two A4 pages side by side in landscape mode, I can't see why you'd want to put it in portrait.

I have also got the soundbar which clips neatly on the bottom of the display and is powered from a socket on the screen which removes the need for one additional power brick and cable. The sound isn't great, but it's adequate for working and listening to iTunes while I work.

I doubt very much that anyone would regret investing in such a great quality display, especially at this price.

:thumbsup:

Couldn't agree more. Stunning monitor and worth every penny. Paid around £600 for mine about 14 months ago. One day plan to buy a second or perhaps even a third to go triple head gaming.

Love mines too, do not have any ghosting that people claim it has.

price is £361.85 delivered.

brought mine from them but was refurbished with 3 yrs warranty for £304 delivered

Very good deal. Voted hot. Only problem with it is the fact that I dont think MCS do a dead pixel guarantee and Dell wont replace it if there is less than 6 dead pixels. Still good for the price though.

To the guys that have this - what gfx card/s have you got? Can this be run at native resolution on a mediocre card?

Are they Samsung pannels? I've had my eye on a Samsung pannel for a while - just watching the price at the minute.

OK, thanks! I was just wondering if it would be cheaper to get a samsung monitor rather than a Dell. I dont know if I can justify paying an extra 100-150 for an extra 2" than the 22" models but the resolution is a lot better.

thats the E248WFP model which uses a TN panel which is inferior to the S-PVA which the 2407WFP uses in terms of viewing angles, only 6-bit colour depth, Movies noise and colour reproduction, but because of the low reponse time its great for gamers.

The one you mention (E248wfp) uses a TN panel. The 2407wfp's use the superior S-IPS and S-PVA panels which is why they are more expensive. Better response time on the TN panels but the S-IPS/PVA panels are generally regarded as a lot better.

Damn you wingz, you got there before me

It's not the same. That screen is not a match for a 2407WFP-HC, despite what people claim.

I said it has the same "type" of PVA screen. In terms of screen quality they're almost identical, where the Dell will have the edge with it's HC 92% Color Gamut screen.

I have the Digimate 24" and agree 100% when people claim that the Digimate is on par with the Dell's screen. :santa:

Are you able to get 1:1 pixel mapping on it? or at least select a 16:9 ratio in the settings?

No, the monitor can't do 1:1 pixel mapping but if you're playing PC games/movies then you can do pixel mapping via the driver software if your video card supports it which most recent ones do.

Have a read on the Overclockers forums about this monitor:

Seeing as you guys know what your talking about, whats your thoughts on this one?: ebuyer.com/pro…860 Samsung SM223BW 22"TFT Monitor Widescreen 1680x1050 3000:1 300 cd/m2 5ms VGA/DVI-D Glossy black 3 Years Warranty. I am a bit worried about the Samsung "panel lottery" and wondered if this was an S version. I don't play many games on the PC because I have a PS3 etc but I do have Oblivion and Doom 3 and some others.

Yeah, on par with less colours and a build quality akin to items from a 99p shop :santa:

Put them side by side, the difference is there to be seen.

Someone correct me if Im wrong but I think the 223BW is the older model of the 2232BW (ebuyer.com/pro…925) which is a very good monitor. Samsung have been wiping out the problems of the "panel lottery" recently and have been disguising the codes on their panels so you can no longer tell where they have been made (which was the problem in the first place, the S versions being made by Samsung themselves and the others being made in 3rd party factories). But they have also been making sure the build quality from the other manufacturers is better.

Id pay a little extra and go for the 2232BW. If you wanted extra inputs like component, s-video etc so you could plug in consoles, sky or freeview then the 2232MW is the same as the BW just with those extra inputs. If you need to know about various models go to AVForums or HardForums and just do a search for the model number, there will be loads of info.

Just bought one off these guys but via ebay £400 delivered.

Figured it was worth the bit extra for a 4 year warranty plus a dead pixel guarantee.

I had earlier ordered from overclockers but I am cancelling that one.

The Digimate at OCUK seems to have a lot of very happy buyers. Does anyone know what sort of stand it comes with? Does it raise/lower as well as tilt? is there a dead pixel guarantee on this one?

Yeah it does feel a bit plasticky, that's the only downside I can see. But once it's all setup on your desk/wall it looks superb and well worth the £150 saving over the Dell.

Have you got the OcUK monitor?

You can use the Distance Selling Act as some form of security if you're unhappy with the monitor in anyway, but you would loose out on postage costs.

Nope, pal got it. Was not impressed with the build quality, the blue light that looks like it came from a chavved up Corsa and the fact that he cannot even register a warranty with it online. It just looks (the shell not the actual screen) cheap. No offense, I'd much rather stick with a Dell with a proven warranty and nicer looks. :thumbsup:

I was about to buy it, but going to get another 2407WFP-HC when my new office arrives.

Do not get this monitor. Read this:
tftcentral.co.uk/rev…htm

And google for the ghosting issues associated with this model too. A dell representative even admitted this was a fault in the monitor that would be rectified.

Cant find it on the dell.co.uk website, when you do a search you get "We are sorry! The product you are searching for is no longer available."

I was going to purchase this a couple of months ago but then read all about the terrible ghosting issues, even Dell have confirmed there is a problem with this which a firmware update cannot fix!, so they are releasing a new 24" model soon.

I bought the PVA 24" from OCUK at £235 at the weekend offer and its the best monitor I've had (I owned a 22" CRT Diamondtron)

As far as DGM warranty is concerned, they've been around for years and I didn't have any issues with warranty replacements when I used to work in a PC shop.

i agree that there is a ghosting issue but you have to look for it and also it only happens on dark grey backgrounds. I've played the following games and not noticed any ghosting.. COD4, UT3, Need For Speed, Jucied 2, Pro Evo 2008, Gears of War, Kyne & Lynch, BlackSite Area 51, Half Life 2.

The ghosting issue has been blown well out of proportion. I game and I have never ever seen any ghosting.

Funny how a lot of people receiving the GMAs are getting DOA ones, dead pixels and scratches on the plastic (See the thread on forums there). Haven't heard anything like that about the Dell. You get what you pay for.

Hi ,
I have the 24wfp ( A04 Revision panel)monitor -paid £360 delivered brand new and 4 year warranty in Sept 07 -more than happy with it .

The Ultrasharp's are superb, I have a 20" version myself, much better than my friends Entry version. SPVA panel and 8 bit colour is good for photoshop and web design etc.

The 'ghosting' issues are far fetched and anyone that buys the Dell 2407FPW-HC monitor will be more than happy with it. It's not advertised on the Dell website as it has a 50+ day lead time due to no stock and there isn't a replacement 24" model due out any time soon as Dell weill inform you (the much cheaper and pretty basic E248WFP was brought out to cater for the mainstram market) A firmware upgrade won't rectify the so called 'ghosting' problem people have reported as it is an inherited side-effect of the type of technology the panel uses. If you're umming and arring over getting one then just go for it, you won't be disappointed
