hi

mike do u know what input connections it has

regards

there's a picture of the connections on dells website

Great post Mike - I love Ultrasharp monitors, cant stand the cheap TN panel's around.

I am typing in front of this monitor right now, and heartily recommend it. For it's features and size this is an awesome price.

Just click the go to deal button and all the info is there in the tech specs tab.

Connectivity:

* High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI )
* Digital Visual Interface (DVI ) with High Definition Content Protection (HDCP )
* DisplayPort
* Video Graphics Array (VGA ), Composite Video, Component Video

Built-in Devices:

* USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub with 1 USB upstream port and 4 USB downstream ports
* 9-in-2 media card reader

Now we're talking.

Does this suffer from clouding or light bleed?

Looks good for what could essentially be a 1920resolution freeview tv when used with a HDMI freeview box.

Does it support exact pixel mapping so it wont stretch 16:9 resolutions?

wow
but no money

Wow!!! What a price!!

It costs about 500 quid for the 24" one!

Bought one of these in the last Dell deal. I love my monitor, no issues with it. Great colours and performance and especially connections which is important to me!

Sadly this is s S-PVA not S-IPS panel.
I am using the Dell Ultrasharp 2005FPW, which uses S-IPS.
Probably won't use any other panel types

Just comparing this to the Dell S2409W 24" Full HD Monitor at £179.28 and wondering which would be more suitable for someone who uses their pc for 12 hours a day? I'd appreciate any advice.

This would be much better as a monitor, mainly as it has a S-PVA monitor and is bigger so you can sit further away from it. However it is double the price.

you could buy two of 179 ones which would be great for boosting the productivity out of ur computer.. if ur graphics card supports two monitors..:thumbsup:

Thanks for your reply, will rep you.
I wondered if this one would be healthier for the eyes, in which case my friend who's interested would have probably paid the extra. She sits pretty close to her screen so perhaps the cheaper one would be the best option, taking the price difference into account.

It's really hard to tell which one is better for eyes. This 27" one seems better as it is TCO03 certified, which means greener and better for eyes. However ur eye health will be affected by many other factors inlcuding brightness, contrast of the monitor, ur graphics card and even your room light.

Is that good, or bad?
I've no idea!

Gamers forgot this Monitor it has an awfully high input lag, which is very bad news for gamers, it's only good for being an office monitor im afraid, the best of the Dell's for gaming is the 2407 Revision A04.


Dell 2407 - Lowest input of lag of the better Dell's

Dell 2709 = Woeful lag

Dell 2707 - Woeful lag

Dell 2408 WFP - Shocking lag
img1.digitalversus.com/pro…jpg

Here is a review. Serious gamers will want to stay away because of input lag but for others this is a very good monitor.

I have the 2707 and its one nice screen I went from the IPS 2007wfp to one of these and can say I'd never go back the size really does help my eyes anyway no more straining to see text I can sit right back and play my 360 or even watch freeview the same time I'm browsing.

Obviously everyones eyes are different but for me bigger was definately better I use the computer alot and cant fault these montiors that includes lag blur etc all that kack I've never noticed any of it. I use mine for 360 movies reading bit of everything love it to bits. I paid 550 for mine in april of this year which was cheap at the time so I'd lap this up if I was in my previous situation.

Most of the ultrasharps are TN panels these days, only the larger ones aren't.

There are LCDs without backlight bleed?

Actually, TNs can have fairly good contrast, definitely up there with IPS.

Likewise response time seems about the same for all three these days.

Sadly monitor specs at the moment only semm to bear a tenuous relationship to actual quality, so it's neither good or bad because it's made up.

FWIW, I know the 24" version of this screen (the 2408WFP) is supposed to be one of the more ghosty monitors around at the moment, but that is considered acceptable and even a very good monitor if you can overlook it's flaws in other areas.

EDIT: As for the deal itself this is the normal price for the 2709W so although only being £20 more expensive makes it a farier price than most other 26-27" screens (you're not actually getting any more room as it's the same resolution) it's not a great deal for this particular monitor.

How far back do you have to sit to view the screen or are you moving your head to direct your eyes like a mouse on the display?
