What on earth is going on with Dell's pricing on this monitor it is constantly up and down a little while ago it was on sale for under 𧹈 now it's up to 𧻪.83 which makes it more expensive than their own new 27" model at 𧹦.

What a complete joke.

That's pretty insane alright, but then Dell are known for this kind of thing. If you want the 24in for a reasonable amount, PCBuyIt's price is still the same. Otherwise, 𧹰 (the current price) is not half bad for a 27in PVA!

Quite frankly, that was an excellent review. Of some 8 reviews I've come across this was knowledgeable, fair and interesting. No need to read the conclusion - the article as a whole was good.

I have a query of Mr Seghers. Your image score of 7 - was it based on the fact that initial viewing quality was perhaps poor formatted and required tweaking to make it a 7/10 or after tweaking the image quality in various screen functions could only make a 7? For if the latter, your review seems to give it - on the basis of image quality - a rather higher figure. Nonetheless, thanks for the quality of the review.

@ChrisH: Sorry for the late reply, didn't notice there was a new comment :(

Glad to hear you liked the review. About the image score, first of all keep in mind that it's relative: a 7 for an MVA/PVA or IPS panel still gives far better imagine quality than a similarly-rated TN.

To answer your question, the 2408WFP came VERY close to scoring an 8, but its factory settings were poor. Tinkering did resolve this to some extent, but to get the most out of it one would need a calibrator which most people don't possess.

If you're still in the market for a 24in monitor, I would seriously consider HP's LP2475w, a review of which is coming soon. And you're welcome :)

Any idea whether Dell will be updating this model in the coming weeks / months? It looks due a refresh. I'm also looking at the HP model, but I'd be interested to know whether anyone knows if a successor to this Dell is imminent
