Dell 2407wfp - should I bite?

Postposted on Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:37 am

I have a friend who is trying to sell his 2407wfp. He's asking $370. What do you all think? Should I pull the trigger?

If there's nothing wrong with the monitor, that sounds like a very good price to me.

I found out a little more info on this monitor. It's a refurbished 2407WFP-HC revision A00.

After a quick google search, I discovered that this revision has been known to have some ghosting issues. I don't game, but I do plan on watching movies on this monitor - will I notice the potential ghosting?

Also, since it's refurbished by dell, could it be that dell upgraded the firmware or whatever they do to fix the problem?

You should be able to get the service menu and verify the firmware version, if the friend is willing to let you do that.

I have a 2407 A03, I think.
It works great for movies and xbox360, heck it the TV in our apartment. (Our stupid cable box doesn't work properly with HDMI so it's running via component).
