If he just got it, it was $675 @ Costco last week or the week before. I got mine from Dell Home for $677 shipped including taxes...

There are coupons for 20% off on ebay, just make sure to buy the right one!!

kf777 how much you pay for the dell 24" ?

BrinNutz is correct. $675 at CostCo. I decided to do CostCo because they have such a great return policy if anything was wrong with the monitor. Nothing wrong. No dead pixels. Ordered it Saturday night and got it Thursday afternoon. Was A03 revision which is fine for me. I don't game so I am not concerned about the issues that others are saying about the A03 versus the A04 for the 2407.

Yessy2952, how can you open your CD tray?

KF777, how do you like those 2 TN panels(especially turned in portrait modo) next to the 2407?

A little off topic, but I didn't want to start a new thread. How are all of the people selling Dell monitors on ebay? Are they buying them as large businesses or something?

Probably buying them from the outlet.

and the other LCD in my room is my Sharp 480p Aquos. EDTV is pretty nice but the camera ruins the quality a bit.

i have a question in general about placement of rear speakers. i have z-680's and cant figure out where to put my rear speakers. my desk is at one end of the room with a lot of empty space behind me. It seems kind of a stretch to put them all the way at the back of the room...

WTF does this have to do with LCD setups?

what is that little silver cylinder on your desk demonx?

Exactly what Elmntskater1588 said. ;)

how do you like that m221u? how is it compared to other 22" monitors you have seen?

I love it. It's one of the best LCD's I've seen/used, but note that I haven't played around on very many LCD's. This is the first LCD I bought for myself, in fact. Every monitor I owned before this was a good 'ol CRT. I was hesitant to buy it since there are very few reviews out there and also after reading some bad reviews on newegg, but then I guess Asus fixed the issues with the monitor. I don't know if it was just a rumor or not.

But it's a beautiful monitor. 2ms response rate = no ghosting what-so-ever in any game I've tried (HL2, CS: Source, R6: Vegas, Company of Heroes, FEAR, UT2k4), great colors, practically no backlight bleeding, hdcp support, plently of monitor modes (standard, theater, game, night view, scenery) and I find the navigating through the menu is fairly easy now but took a little playing around with to get used to it. The only perfect looking desktop resolution is it's recommended 1680 x 1050, but anything below that is too small, IMO. In games though, any resolution I choose looks good so that's definitely a good thing. I haven't tried the built-in speakers (don't need to), so I can't say what I think about those, but I'm sure they're nothing special.

I had some troubles with FEAR though. Shadows looked really weird on some resolutions, but the game looks good now. Not exactly sure what I did to make it look normal. No biggie though. Maybe it's the custom drivers I use. Every other game looks fine. The overall color quality is a huge improvement from my old 19" Viewsonic p95f+ CRT. I'm sure going from VGA to DVI helped a lot. :p

Overall, I think it's definitely worth the price. :cool:

I didn't know what I was missing until I got the 2407. Screens I designed before for programs on the TN panels are so much crisper on the 2407. It helps me debug things to make sure they look right. The TN panels are now used for email and reference material on the side so they are okay. No regrets getting the 2407!!! Worth the price for sure.

Back view of the 2 arms holding the 3 monitors. I got these on Ebay.

Could you post the ebay link of those lcd arms or maybe the brand and model number? I love those heavy duty arms and would like to pickup a couple for my three 2405s.

If you search ebay for: LCD Arm Desk* you will find quite a few. These are links to ones that look similar to mine.

How does it hold up that dell 24"? Does it have any problems keeping that big monitor in the correct position?

No problem holding it up at all. The arms are built like a tank. I took a better picture of it so you can see the arms better.

Hi all,

I'm building a 3-monitor setup and was intrigued by some configurations I saw here. I want my main monitor to be the Dell 2407 WFP, and the side monitors to be turned vertically (I don't want 3 widescreens side-by-side...too wide). I'd like the edges to match up reasonably well (1/4" or less ideally), so does anyone know which Dell model would be good the side panels?

The website only includes dimensions including the stand.
Thanks...

Good. Kleenex lied about their %age use of recycle material, was audit by environmentalists in the past 2 mth. I also avoid using Kleenex since then.

How well do you think those would hold up on a glass table with a 20.1 wide and 19" viewsonics?
