    Is this worth the extra wonga? I am at the Point of accepting a refund for my 2005FWP. After a series of replacements with back light issues (Calm down PieEater I know the word Dell gives your tourettes syndrome). I realy love the monitor, it's just that it bugs me to accept a non 100% product, and Dell seem to be totally oblivious to the issue. What would you recommend as an alternative, and as asked I would be looking at adding £280 to my refund :eek: :eek: I could bUy a plot of land for that :) Will I benefit. I couldn't go less that 20" now I made the upgrade from 17". Did you folks find it the same when you upgraded to the 24"?
    Thanks Paul

    I love my 24" 2405. I've not looked back since buying it.

    Night and day, the 2405's extra area and better panel (IMO) make all the difference.

    I had the same dilema with my Dell 2005, in the end I couldn't be ***** with Dell anymore and bought the Eizo 21".
