    Hello all,

    I am looking for a monitor to hook up with my MBP.
    So far I like the Dell's the most (connections, colours etc).
    I thought buying the sp2309w at €239, but now there is someone selling his Ultrasharp 2407wfp for €250.

    Where the SP2309W has the new features like hdmi, new ui, guarantee.. the 2407wfp has the better colours (i think).
    Which do you suggest?

    Or is there any other brand you would prefer (€250 max)?

    Thanks in advance!

    No replies, too bad.
    Think I'm gonna go with the "new" sp2309w then.
    I ain't a photographer or something. Will be using it for movies, gaming and a little webdesign only.

    FWIW, I have a 2407WFP, and while it's a very sharp, bright display, my copy suffers form a slight yellow-cast. That said, I didn't notice it (the yellow-cast) until I got my 30" ACD, which is color (or is that colour? my spellchecker thinks its the former :p) perfect, at least to my eye.

    Time to buy, It'll be the SP2309W unless someone comes up with a better one right about now! :)
    I think I won't regret this one though, great deal at 230 euros.

    The SP2309W is a stupid "Full HD" monitor. The other has the good aspect, 1920x1200.

    There are two most important things in a computer monitor: color reproduction and vertical resolution.
