Dell quietly announces 2407WFP

This 24-inch wide-screen LCD replaces the very popular Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW, which we reviewed last year. We had a little hands-on time with the 2407WFP last week and found it to be very similar to its predecessor, with a few minor upgrades and a low $949 price.  The Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP's design follows that of the other updated UltraSharps, and we expect it will have the same smooth adjustment capabilities including portrait/landscape pivot, panel tilt, side-to-side swivel, and back and forward tilt. We also expect the 2407WFP to wobble slightly, just as we've experienced with similarly designed UltraSharps. The inputs on the back panel consist of one upstream and two downstream USB 2.0 ports, DVI-D and VGA signal inputs, a 12-volt audio jack for connecting an optional Dell Sound Bar speaker, plus composite, component, and S-Video ports for connecting a VCR or DVD player. Along the left side of the monitor are two more USB 2.0 ports and a 9-in-2 media card reader. Like its UltraSharp siblings, the 2407WFP's cable management is a bit sparse: the display's slender neck has only a simple rectangular cutout through which to thread the cables.
