Manufacturer: Dell

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Desirable extras can't make up for the pricey Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP's sluggish performance.

Desirable extras can't make up for the pricey Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP's sluggish performance.

Dell's full-featured UltraSharp 2007WFP has a fully adjustable stand, multiple video ports, and USB ports to boot. But image quality - although not bad - is almost the worst among our batch of currently tested 20in widescreen LCDs.

Interestingly, the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP did extremely well in our grayscale tests, something that many monitors trip over. But results of text tests were inconsistent, with Excel spreadsheets very readable but font tests showing average sharpness.

Points for graphics scores, including those for colour saturation and skin tones, were uniformly middling for the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP.

It's really too bad about the test scores, because the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP offers a raft of features normally found in larger premium monitors.

The panel tilts, swivels, pivots (rotates 90 degrees to portrait orientation), and has one of the smoothest height-adjustment mechanisms we've seen. There was no bundled software for the pivoting panel, leaving the user with the sometimes awkward task of adjusting the panel and then the software to a portrait position. This is done from the Display Properties section of your operating system. (If your operating system lacks such an option, you can usually download the software from your graphics card vendor.)

The rectangular hole on the stand itself is a clever (if unoriginal) implementation of a cable-management system. Two USB ports on the right side and two underneath the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP, next to the video connectors, are useful for plugging in peripherals and flash drives.

Additional video ports for VGA, composite, and S-Video are useful for the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP's picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture capabilities.

The Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP would suit those looking for an ergonomic or multimedia display if not for its relatively underwhelming image quality, which is particularly disappointing given its high price for the category.

    Following in the footsteps of such practical, moderately priced widescreen LCDs from Dell as the E228WFP, the Ultrasharp 1908WFP, and the G2210, the Dell ST2310 is a solid display that performs well. It's not splashy or feature-rich, but it does deliver nice image quality.
