Re: 2408WFP A00/A01 owners - First test you should do it (IMHO).

it stands out a mile

 

Dell support guys on here posted a list of fixes that REVA01 will fix and there was no mention of the left side brightness issue, Dell arent even recognising the problem exists.

Hmn, then you might be the lucky owner of the only non-defect 2408WFP monitor. But if that's true, there is hope still that Dell might be able to actually deliver 2408WFP monitors without this defect.
Where was yours manufactured? It should say on the sticker on the back of the monitor.
We still need word from Dell concerning this issue.

I ordered mine May 21, 2008 and today DELL offered with $100 off ( + EPP 5% off ) so i canceled my order and re ordered with new price. The Rep said, he verified with the technical department and they will ship me A01. I don't know if its true or not. He works under EPP department. He said my delivery date will be June 20 - 25th

Just Recieved my 2408 yesterday. Dell shipped it to me overnight for free! Basically I recieved this monitor 3 days after placing my order. Way to go Dell!

 

Did your test, thanks. I did notice a little bit of brightening in the last image to the left. Nothing that noticible and definitely not a bother for me. After doing some gamma calibration and color, bightness contrast adjustment, what little brighteneing there was is now gone and the entitre image is uniform in brightness. The contrast is insane. Blackest blacks are very dark. its very nice.

 

I love this monitor, its exactly what I was looking for.

Hi,

 

That's not a new problem. Previously I had 2407WFP rev. A04 and I've noticed that difference of brightness from left to right and I get used with it.

I think it's how lamps are placed or regarding PVA technology since the cells are not moving 90 degress like a TN panel.

Did your test on my A00 2408WFP, no difference between any of the images.  My monitor has even backlighting and color (which is not to be confused with typical MVA/PVA color shift).

I am too in the market for a 24" monitor since my trusty old CRT had just died on me. However, after reading a lot of bad thing about the 2408, I kind of put off from purchasing this monitor. One bright side, Brett25 seems to be able to make adjustment that will make this monitor looks superb. 

 

For Brett25, can you share with us what is the value of all the adjustment you made to make this monitor looks good and what software or hardware you used to make all those adjustment you described in your post above?

 

thanks
