    I'm in the process buying a new Dell PC with a wide screen LCD monitor.

    The web page shows the model as 2005FPW while the order confirmation shows 2007FPW. I've questioned it with the sales guy but haven't got very far... yet...

    The reviews of the 2005FPW seem quite favourable, but I can't find anything on the 2007FPW.

    Anyone know anything about it?

    The Dell web site gives models 2005FPW and 2007WFP, while the monitor detailed on my order is a 2007FPW.

    Need to get an answer from Dell... <groan>...

    Okay, I've found some unofficial news on the FPW2007. If you look in the attached pic you can see its specs (unconfirmed, found on Hardocp forum). It looks like the main difference will be HDCP support.

    Also if you follow the link below you can see pics of it - found on the Dell Support site - doesn't look too bad:

    Its good that they are making it HDCP. Ive got the older 24" model so im wondering when they are going re-release that one and make it HDCP. The 30" one is already HDCP so no need.

    Rumoured April for the 2407fpw. There will be a 27" 2707fpw too.

    Lots of discussion there about it.

    Thanks for the info guys...

    The responses so far from Dell have been miserable... not impressed at all by their ability to get back to their customers... and I've not even got the kit yet...

    I found the following though, which gives the tech specs of all the Dell monitors...

    http://support.euro.dell.com/suppor...x?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs&~cat=3&~subcat=48

    But, there's no specific mention of HDCP on the 2007WFP... or am I missing something?

    No, I can't see anything that looks like HDCP in that document. It was one of the rumoured added features (only from reading on other forums).

    It looks like it will still be 16ms too, which is disappointing, with the only difference being a slightly higher contrast ratio. Quite underwhelming actually.

    Anybody heard anymore news on the Dell 2007WFP? I'm hoping to buy one soon, but would rather know if it had any major problems before splashing my cash. What are peoples thoughts on said monitor?

    Thanks.
