View Full Version : FS - Dell UltraSharp 1800FP

Jul 13, 2006, 10:05 AM
Again, before I post this on eBay (hopefully in lieu of posting this on eBay) I'm offering this to the MacRumors group first. This is my flat panel display that I have used for the past two and a half years. It is a black 18" Dell UltraSharp 1800FP flat panel TFT LCD display. The monitor is in great condition, no scratches on the casing and used in a non-smoking environment for all of its life. It just needs a thorough dusting. I have used it through digital signal the whole time I've owned it, however all the cables (power, analog connection, digital connection) will be included. The monitor still works very well and I considered keeping it as a second screen for my laptop, however, I decided I want to have a nice simple setup (not so many cables all over the place) and thus I am offering it up for sale.

I have not noticed any dead pixels in the time I have had it. It is very responsive and looked great for the photoshop work I did.

I am asking $150, buyer pays shipping.

Is it the Gray or Black one

Crap, all I have for pictures (its at my other apartment right now) are these kinda blurry ones. The plaque on the top that says "Italian" is one of those labels that I picked up from a salad bar (Italian Dressing) and it is affixed to the bezel with scotch tape. It will be removed prior to selling.

Is there any warranty left on it or was it only a one year warranty?

It is out of warranty (1 year of warranty, 2 and a half years ago...monitor purchased late 2003).

I have one of these an It's an incredible monitor. You can switch between the DVI and the VGA and run 2 computers on the same monitor. Really cool stuff.

So is the monitor 3 1/2 or 2 1/2 years old? I am confused.
