Default Dell 19" UltraSharp 1907FP LCD Monitor

Are you looking to upgrade your dated CRT or small LCD? Dells 1907FB provides a full 19" viewing area and supports 1280*1024 at 75Hz. It also includes a slew of extra features.. even two USB ports!

After reading Greg's review, feel free to talk about it!

Great review. I have to say I am impressed that Dell includes the DVI connector... that is just a great addition. My NEC came with no such connector. My LG TV did though.

Some of you know that i have a 32" lcd... the thing I wish it had that this monitor does is an hd input and dual input.

Id someday like to see monitors get what my monitor does have though. A tv tuner. I can do PIP and watch adult swim while i play games.

LCD TV's suck in a sense for computer monitors. My 26" goes up to 1280*768... too odd to do normal stuff with. Gaming is ok with it though.

When LCD monitors came up at a LAN party I was at, all the people were talking about was how crappy games play on them. They seem fine to me. They were talking about a bad refresh rate (which is apparently needed to play FPS games). Im writting with a standard dell 17"crt in case you're wondering.

There is not a refresh rate on LCD's so to speak. The main thing that gamers should worry about on LCD monitors is the response time. Typically anything 8ms and under is acceptable. The monitor in the review is a 8ms and I love it. A lot.

I love the Dell 2405, its 24" but the resolution is 1920x1200 which is great for games.

Monitors are the best things Dell make!

Hmm... 1280*1024 on an LCD TV seems wierd to me. If it looks good, that's all that matters.

Does anyone know if this is Dell's 6-bit panel, or if it uses an 8-bit one unlike it's european counterpart?

The review mentioned that the monitor has 2 USB ports when it actually has 4. Two on the back and two on the left hand side of the monitor

The review covers both sets of USB ports. The two on the side are mentioned sperately than the two on the back of the monitor but by reading through the review, one can see that there are in fact 4 USB ports on the 1907.

Default 1907FP a big downgrade

I'm not sure about this review as the "user opinions" over at the CNET site are more believable. I have both the Dell 1905FP and the Dell 1907FP (which I am returning by the way for a refund).

Color reproduction is unacceptable, darker to lighter colors from top to bottom with washing out, perhaps backlight bleeding on the bottom half of the panel, brightness varys across the panel making it hard on the eyes.

In speeding up this monitor by a different and faster panel they have downgrade this product significantly.

I wouldn't recommend this LCD to anyone as others have commented the same as myself on the poor overall quality of this monitor.

Maybe you were lucky and got one with a good brand of panel. I understand there is more than one brand of panel in the 1907FP.

Regards
Allan
