    1)About 3-4 days
    2)They call you first to set a time.
    3)No dead pixel. Using it for 6 months and loving every minute of it.

    Same as yuyt...3 or 4 working days upon placing order.
    The delivery man will call to check if I'm home.
    No dead pixel.

    I'm using ATI X800XT -> DVI input.

    Never tried using notebook but, I think so long as your graphics card got at least 64MB RAM, should be able to do 1920x1200.

    Have used with the a laptop before, no problem with the resolution but not too sure about speed of using with Photoshop as I used this to test the monitor only.

    I have used it with a Radeon 9000 card with no issue. However, sometimes the screen would become fuzzy. A quick fix would be to change the screen settings and everything would be fine again. This issue I put down to the card because with my new fangled graphic card I do not see this problem

    I think it should be ok. But, connecting the normal VGA cable at such a high resolution may result in fuzzy or shimmering images. Watch out for that.

    There is a dell counter in Suntec City. Not sure they got this monitor there or not though.

    I'm using it with a MacMini with DVI.
    It could recognised the 24" Dell and able to do 1920x1200.

    I got a Dell 24 LCD monitor together with a Dell Pentium D-based PC. Graphics card used is a 256M nVidia GeForce 6800. Order came about a week. Delivery people called before delivering.

    LCD worked perfectly out of the box. No dead pixels. Took quite a while for me to get use to the big screen size. I calibrated the monitor using EyeOne. Very happy with the monitor. However, one of the very few things I do not like is the screen too damn bright! Even when you turn the brightness level to 0 it is still very bright so please brighten up your room when using it to save your eyes.

    You have to connect to the DVI port to get the most out of this monitor. I tried using the VGA port and the images/texts are substandard.

    Using one, the viewing angle is not so nice on the 2405 FPW if you compare it to Apple Cinema HD Display or even my old 19" Sharp LCD.

    It's way way too bright outta the box as well: http://www.macusersg.org/forums/index.php?topic=30287.0

    Yes...it's very bright!

    Many times, my pictures that are underexposed looks ok on this monitor but when i send for printing, the gotta adjust it up a bit. Thats at brightness set to 0.

    Other then that...it's awesome for Photoshop and games, although u would need a super 3D card to play games at 1920x1200 smooth.
