    Hello,
    I just got my used Dell 2007WFP in the mail yesterday and it looks great!
    I was wondering whats the best way to test it for fading, dead pixels, screen burn?

    Do you have photoshop? If so, run it full screen.

    Also, consider running solid color desktop wallpapers in different colors. This way dark/light pixels will show up.

    Dead or stuck pixels are easy. Display an all white background and look for dark specks and then display a black background and look for light specks.

    To test for color you need some kind of hardware calibration device, a colorimeter. Either the eye2display or the spider. You need one of these in any case if you are into photo or video work.
