Just installed my new Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW LCD monitor, and I must say wow! It seems huge compared to the 2001 I was using. With the 1900×1200 resolution (as well as 24″ of viewable space), I will be able to see more windows at the same time, to attempt to quench my thirst for information.
The brightness was extremely high, and when I went to change it, the initial setting was 50%. 100% brightness seems to light up the entire room! I set it down around 20, as that seems to work well for me in normal office lighting.
As a bonus, it has a 9-in-1 flash card reader built into the side. Very handy.
Probably won’t have more to say on this unless it breaks, or someone buys me a 30 inch Cinema display as an incremental upgrade. I would recommend this to anyone who has the space. And if you are in the tech industry, you cannot afford to go without in screen, chair, or desk. Those are the basics of comfort and safety in your job.
