Dell UltraSharp 2007FP 20.1" vs. Apple 20"
Anyone use the Dell?
I've got a dell widescreen 21".
It's very sharp and excellent value. I'd recommend it.
And i actually have the Apple one.
i still say dell
the dell i have renders type, especially, really poorly and with pinkysh fringing around letter forms. I dont use it for design though and it runs on vista. it was one of those cheap all inclusive deals...
- that monitor has either:
a)not ever been claibrated
b)white point temp is messed from use and will never come backmadirish
- Sounds more like a setup/video card issue. Run the display settings as high as the monitor will go.joyride
- or maybe its just a crap monitor all together! hahahahamenos
- is that clearType maybe?it uses a coloured dither to smooth letterforms.monNom
- that monitor has either:
but that its the same as the apple one is good to know! that will come in very handy. What other similarly good screens are there, by the way? 23"+...
most of us are rocking 2 of the new Dell 20" here at the office
So much better looking than the old style that was in that article above. I have the old one at home and the only problem I had was a little light bleed in the corners, nothing that I really noticed unless the entire screen was black. I don't see that on these new ones.
i brought my 20" dell from my house to use at work because it's so good and cheap.
apropos of nothing really...... the apple 20" has only a few weeks left on the shelves.....new cinema displays are coming at macworld on the 18th of january....people are talking a suite of 24", 30", 34" but people talk alot.......
- I dont understand the push for jumbo monitors. I guess if you use it for movies but staring at a 30 monitor would make me buggy.sherman
- i think they will start to converge with the iTV thing to get into that marketlinearch
- that market being the HD TV marketlinearch
I have 2 Dell monitors and both have developed a dark corner, one has a slight blue cast despite having it color calibrated. I'm sticking to my cinema display.
- Dell has a 3 year warranty for theirs. Not sure if that helps?sherman
- as opposed to apple's 1yr.menos
- they're all out of warranty. The apple and the crappy dell are both 2.5 years old.Daro
- 2.5 < 3
- most top brand monitors have the 3 year warranty... samsung/lg/viewsonic...
What the deal with the Dell widescreen. Its less expensive so im guessing its not as good?
i have a Dell 24" and love it... no dead pixels
my wife has a dell 27" AND Cinema 30" at her office. She said both still display perfectly [i think she's had them around 6 months].
The Apple monitors haven't been upgraded much in the past 3 years, and the hot rumor, take with a grain of salt obviously, is that they'll release new ones at MacWorld in mid-Jan. Might be worth waiting a month to compare.
great monitor tho.
I've been a Mac user for quite some time and will continue to refuse to purchase Apple monitors. I strongly advice to always go with another manufacturer, and here's why:
Old display technology.
Poor contrast ratio.
No built-in controls.
No aux inputs, DVI only.
Cost up to 2x the price of a superior-spec monitor from a competitor. You pay out the ass for form-over-function.
i found this information while i was doing research since i am looking into buying 23" Apple Cinema Display.
So what people saying about a Dell monitor and ACD using the same panel is not true. They may come from the same manufacturer but not the same panel type.
The Dell 2407 (24") uses S-PVA
ACD uses S-IPS
