Last time we featured Dell's UltraSharp 2408WFP in our deal post, it was on sale for $517. Today, the display is on sale again, but Dell's actually offering it for just $469—$80 cheaper than the new "starting price" and well below the $689 this display cost last year.
Unlike some of the cheaper 24" displays you might see around the web, this one has a PVA panel with a full 8-bit-per-channel color definition. TN-based panels are only 6-bit, so they fill in the missing colors by dithering. TN technology also translates into poor viewing angles. $469 might sound expensive for a 24" display, but it's actually a pretty sweet deal for a product that combines a 1920x1200 resolution, an 8-bit panel with great image quality, and a whole army of inputs (including DisplayPort, HDMI, and component).
We weren't too thrilled with the first iteration of the 2408WFP. Since then, however, Dell has ironed out the initial kinks, and TR editor Geoff Gasior has a pair of 'em in a dual-head setup.
