After reading alot of the threads about this monitor and after my huge fiasco disaster with the 2405, I decided to give a 2005 a shot, for $411 from my Dell Rep. I kinda ripped it outa the box fast during lunch break so I didn't get the version number. Amazingly, no dead pixels and looks like fairly even backlighting from what I could tell. Need nighttime to verify this. The screendoor effect is SOMEWHAT noticable as people have spoken off, but definently not what I feared it to be. From a decent distance, its hard to tell, but I can tell the difference between the 2005 and 2405. By far, the 2405 does not have this problem. People have also been complaingin about "shimmering" or "waves" going down the side of the monitor. During my BF2 loading menu, I noticed this effect on the left side of the monitor. However, I have been unable to see it during regular windows or any other games, so I appears to be random on my monitor. Again, from a distance, its almost impossible to notice for my anyway. I also seem to notice that the colors are bit more "Truer" especially reds versues the 2405. They tended to be a bit more "washed" out when I compare them. I also noticed that I don't get thing "ghosting" that I did with the 2405, mainly in HL2 deathmatch. I always got a "silver ghost" effect with fast moving objects which I do not noticed on this panel. I do feel however the 2005fpw panel doesn't seem as "quick" and "lighting fast" as my 2405 did, but maybe its just a preference thing. The graphics seemd to be a bit "blurrier" then the 2405. I need to do more testing to see if this gets better after a full panel warm up. So far, im pretty happy with it. I also like the 20" size, its almost perfect for me during games. 24" was almost to much, I had to actually move my damn head to try to look around the screen with things going on. Seems that 20" seems to be the perfect balance of size for me anyway. I'll do more testing tonight with pics.
