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

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)
