    Anybody know if there's a quick way to switch between inputs? I just setup my Mac Mini as an input on the second DVI input (my PC is on DVI #1) and I'd like to be able toggle back and forth quickly. Going through the front menus is kind of annoying. Didn't know if there was a way to configure...

    Dell 2709W

    I've been experiencing a problem with this monitor ... not exactly sure if it's an LCD hardware issue, a video card hardware issue, a driver issue, or an operating system issue ... but here it goes. I frequently connect to my PC using Remote Desktop from work. When I return home, and jiggle...

    For those of you that have ordered/used a calibrator with the screen, what calibrator do you recommend? I'm considering the Eye One Display 2 since I've read good things about it, but I'm open to other options. This will be used to calibrate a dual-LCD setup with two different Dell LCDs ...

    Nope. Mine works.

    I'd stick with Dell for warranty/revision reasons. As for the price, Dell has bumped the US price up and down between a higher and lower prices (I think $899 and $699) since the product's launch. I would imagine whatever price they off you now will return if you're not in a hurry and don't...

    What's the benefit of the Eye-One Display 2 over the Eye-One LT? Their site is thin on comparison details.

    A01 - October 2008 - Made in Mexico I've done a cursory test, and it doesn't have any dead pixels that I've picked up on yet. I think my colors are currently being managed by Adobe's Gamma control ... something I think I need to disable because I don't know how it handles dual-LCDs and my...

    What # did you call for that? I tried calling the # in the delay email I got, and they wouldn't give that to me.

    I don't have a CRT (or an LCD yet) but how do you actually do such a test if you did have both?

    The only thing slower than the input lag is Dell's shipping speed.

    My bet is yes. My bet is also that I get upgraded shipping because of this, or the price drops by the time it ships and I get my price adjusted.

    Just got an email saying my shipment is delayed from Dell until the 16th. I ordered it on the 9/30. Talk about crappy service. More than half a month to ship an LCD? That's pathetic.

    Just waiting for Dell to get off their ass and ship this thing. I ordered on the 30th, and it's not due to ship until the 9th. Talk about taking their time. I remember the days when you'd receive the thing before they had a chance to update their website saying it had gone out.
