Monitor Question

  1. Hello everyone,

    I currently own a 15 inch flat panel monitor that I bought a few years back when they first came out. I am now looking to get a new monitor. I have been looking at monitors on Dell because of the request of my mother who will be paying for it. I am currently looking at the Ultrasharp 2007 FP and the Ultrasharp 2007 WFP.

    -So, Is the 2007 WFP posted at Dell really an ultrasharp?

    I am concerned because this one (Dell Ultrasharp 2007 WFP) costs $359 at this web address....
    (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-4688)
    ......
    while the 2007 FP which is not a widescreen costs $382(http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-4687)

    So my question to you is....which monitor is better, which one should I get, or any other suggestions.

    I'd choose the widescreen one. They're great for watching movies, but IDK if they're good for games, because the game must support the 1680x1050 resolution.

    But maybe I'm wrong, because I use a normal 17" LCD :)

    If you had to choose would you rather have the Syntax Olevia LT23HVX - LCD TV - 23" or the Dell Ultrasharp 2007 WFP as your computer monitor?

    Both look very good, but I'd choose the Olevia TV, especially if you have an Xbox 360 and want to play in high definition.
    And as a computer monitor it should work great. 1600:1 contrast ratio and 8ms response time.

    Very good :)

    The TV has a much lower resolution than the monitor. Only 768 tall is going to hurt (although maybe not too much if you are using a 15" now, because thats probably 1024x768 at best).

    It should look good.
