Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP 24" Widescreen LCD

0 thumbs up

We’re willing to bet that many of you have wildly varied opinions of Dell. Some no doubt consider them a huge, monolithic corporation who pushes out generic computers without a soul; while others consider them to be pioneers of the low-cost PC movement, who (almost) single-handedly made computers available to nearly every price point. No matter what your opinion of Dell as a company is, it is difficult to find many people in IT circles who dislike their monitor division.

Dell’s lineup of flat panel displays have proven themselves to be reliable, stylish, and typically right on par price-wise with some of the most inexpensive LCD monitors on the market. They’ve delivered exceptional bang for the buck, and throughout the years, they’ve managed to improve the quality of the screens and the overall feature sets while overall prices have gone down. While this is also true for the rest of the monitor industry, Dell has retained their reputation for reliability, which still sticks with them today. Sure, Dell displays don’t have the raw sexiness of Apple’s Cinema series displays, but they’re typically quite a bit cheaper while offering more functionality.

Perhaps the best part of Dell’s monitor division is that they never slow down. Around every year or so, we typically see Dell launch refreshes of their monitor designs, which typically include updated bezel styling, upgraded features, and new connectivity options. This year is no exception, and Dell is getting pretty feisty with its new WFP lineup. Today, we’ll be looking at the 24” model, which many (including us) consider to be the sweet spot in terms of price, productivity, and raw size. Studies have often shown 24” displays to be the best for price/productivity, even more so than 30” displays, as many find screens larger than 24” hard to navigate due to having so much space.

Without further ado, let’s meet the latest display in Dell’s arsenal, the 24” Ultrasharp 2408WFP.

Sharpness, contrast, I don't know exactly what I mean.  But using VGA on my CRT and looking at the boldness of colors is not as good as on an Apple LCD, imo.  I don't know how to describe it, but it's better.

 I cant trust Dell Monitor reviews anymore. They send out their best stuff to review sites and then when you actually order one often you get a different panel than what the review was based off of. Like this monitor for instance has been tested by some users to really high input lag and so there is some ghosting and bluring in games. Yet reviews dont mention this often at all because of course they got the best panels.

I just bought my Wife a new Dell for her college graduation and I got her the 24 inch Ultrasharp and she absolutely loves it. I ihave a 22 inch HP with a glossy front but hers totally rocks!
