Re: I checked on recently ordered

I think some folks get overly hung up on the technology of the LCD at expense of the results - fueled by technical papers on which technology is better. I've heard report that the 2007 is a fine monitor regardless of LCD type. Also Dell specs the monitor performance (contrast ratio, viewing angle) not how the performance is achieved.

When I unpacked and set up mine last week I was curious what kind it was, but also I didn't want to know as I thought it would influence my perception of what I was seeing.

I did notice that at off angle viewing dark areas of the screen looked red, not black. I had a suspcision that I had the 'inferior' LCD type. But I didn't care as I was happy with the monitor overall (especially at the sub $400 price)

But then I learned from this thread how to check what kind of LCD, I did and was actually quite surprised to find it was the SIPS.
