Which Dell Monitor should I get?

Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP ($449) or E207WFP ($299)?


Looking at both Dell monitors:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...1&sku=320-4688

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...1&sku=320-5123

Do you think the Ultrasharp is worth the extra $149?
Is the only difference that one will support Composite and S-video in?
Is the actual quality of the display the same (when using a DVI source)?

Thanks,
Nick

I think there is an obvious technology difference between the two, the cheapie version has an LCD that looks best looking at it straight on, also there seems to be a bit of a condition that seems like misaligned pixels.

The more expensive version has an LCD screen that looks great at all angles and just looks more crisp and has better colour saturation.

Wait a few weeks!

Dell is due to have another "Dell 10 Days of Deals." You'll get either monitor at a greater discount.

Thanks & thanks.

If the $449 one is better, that is the one I will get.
I never new there was a quality difference.

Also, if the is going to be sales again soon, I will wait until then.

Thanks,
Nick

Yup !
X-mas is around the corner, and the 10 Days of Deals event should pop up.
If not, as soon as X-Mas is over, Mid January sales will be on.

To answer your initial question on what you should get, consider this.
- If you work in Graphic Arts, or appreciate ( need ) quality, go for the better one if you budget permits.
- If you simply browse and a regular LCD panel works for you, go for the saving.

Have the Dell LCD's changed in appearance? They don't appear to have the center stand, as displayed here.

I remember posting about the Dell E207WFP monitor a while back.

From what I remember, that monitor uses a 6-bit panel whereas the Dell 2007WFP uses an 8-bit panel. That means better representation on the latter. Furthermore, the Dell E207WFP lacks a USB-hub in comparison to the Dell 2007WFP.

I've used both versions (own the 2007WFP, my parents own an E207WFP) and prefer the 2007WFP more so for the additional inputs (S-Video and composite) and especially for the USB hub. (Having no USB hub and only two ports on my Powerbook it has proven helpful)

I would look at outher makes all together, if there displays are made like there computers (we lost two Dells that were about a year old at school last week) it could drop like a ded fly too soon.

Darien Red Sox - The Dell 2007WFP and the 2407WFP have both received excellent reviews. What does their computer quality have to do with their monitor quality?
