Dell 20" TFT <500


Dell Ultrasharp 2001FP 20" performance LCD Flat Panel Monitor. 250cd/m2 brightness, 400:1 contrast, 16ms response time. Dual Tone TCO03
Gebruikelijke verzending: 1-2 weeks
Onderdeel fabrikant: 200-23361
Dell-onderdeel: 17999

Excellent bargain if you ask me, and if you are able to buy it as a company/without taxes, it only costs like 300.. delivered to your doorstep.

I ordered one last week Monday and it's sitting on my desk since yesterday evening, it has 4 inputs:
- D-Sub VGA
- S-Video
- Composite

the base is very sturdy and allows the monitor to pivot in all directions, you can also turn the screen 90 if needed. You get a power block, VGA and DVI cable, a small guideline and a driver CD.

Plug and play installation, on first inspection using [g]Nokia+monitor+test[/g] no dead/lazy pixels at all.

Native resolution is 1600x1200, which avoids head-ache with widescreen setups, as the wide screen version is actually smaller in total surface if you compare the 20" TFT and 20" Widescreen.

DVD movie gave clear image, good contrast, although black is not black, unlike your good old CRT. I have an old Xeon 18.1" TFT installed next to the new Dell, that one's color balance and contrast is simply bbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaad in comparison:) but still doable for text, it's actually easier on the eyes for surfing, ms word and emailing. But gaming and movies are much better on the Dell Screen.

* The D-Sub VGA connector works okay, hooked that on up to a second PC and image re-aligns quickly and correctly without any flicker or image noise.
* DVI-D image quality is close to perfection, no manipulation needed.
* one nifty feature that I found in the OSD menu was PIP. Picture in Picture, it allows the s-video or composite source to be shown at the same time as the D-Sub or DVI-D in a small window, quite nifty.

Now I can hook up 2 PCs and 2 consoles to this monitor and be done with it.:)

in the US the same monitor is priced 499, but doesn't seem that good a deal compared to EU
