    Just go look through the set-up threads - there's plenty of 'em in there.

    OK, you can't actually see much of the monitor, but enjoy anyway:

    Hmm, this thread is tempting me to buy a new monitor....I have been eying the 24" Dell LCD and the 23" ACD for a while now. :D :)

    Hi there. I have a 2407WFP and I was contemplating between the 23" ACD and the Dell 2407WFP and I think the price and all of the ports and things like that is what pushed me to buy the Dell. It is really great, once I get everything somewhat organized I will put a picture up. So anyways, if you are thinking about a 2407WFP, I say definitely get it. :)

    Thanks for the input TaylorB, I must admit that I am swayed by the fact that the Dell 2407WFP is a good deal cheaper. The 23" ACD definitely looks nicer in my opinion, but not sure if I can use that to justify for the price difference. :)

    Would slap up a pic but my desk is way too messy and almost never looks tidy.

    Feel like posting a link to your desktop background? I'm loving that picture!

    Bumping this thread. I was looking for info on the 24" and 20" Dell LCDs, but I have to agree that's a very cool background. I'd like to know what it's called too. It looks like it might be custom made.

    Just got mine. Which settings does everyone use? Have any of you calibrated? If so, how?

    1920 * 1200 - not as hard for your graphics card to do as you might imagine.

    Calibrated my arse!

    Maybe 1 day - but for normal people you don't need to bother.

    Whoops, sorry, didn't notice the background request until now. I don't remember where I got it exactly, I'm actually fairly sure it was from one of the "background pics" thread, maybe Feb? I unfortunately don't have the picture anywhere anymore, since I changed computers and foolishly didn't transfer my backgrounds folder over. Sorry. :(

    Anyways, updated setup (and why I no longer have the pic):

    I use just the 24" screen, but leave the MacBook open (screen off) in order to let it cool better.

    How do you leave the screen open yet have it off?

    I hook it up to the external display when it's closed, and then wake it with an external keyboard/mouse. Once it's awake and displaying on the 24", I can open the case, and it doesn't wake the laptop screen. It'll only turn the laptop screen again if I unplug the 24".

    Thanks. Also, what did you use to cover your laptop keys?

    edit: actually looks like you have cut of a piece of that stuff which already comes with it...
