Hey Guys and Girls,

Can someone please help me? I am wanting to know if anyone has recently purchased a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP from recently, or not so recently.

I have a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP that I purchased late last year. It is the A00 revision with the input lag problem. And I don't care what other forums say.... this A00 revision you CAN definately notice the input lag (at least compared to my old Samsung 940B, TN vs. S-PVA I know.). I haven't actually measured it but I noticed it straight out of the box.

Although this display is a very good display in most other respects (inputs galore!!), the input lag is a big let down.

Anyway, I am interested to hear about other people's experiences with this monitor if you have owned one, or currently own one.

Is yours the A00 revision, the A01 revision, or even the A02 revision?

Do the revisions make a difference to input lag?

Are the colours affected with the new revisions?

What revision is Dell currently shipping in NZ?

I read on another forum that Dell is offering a replacement option for the newer revisions for customers that have the old A00 revision (sadly me), can anyone confirm that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Smile

A01 did reduce input lag, it's about 30ms which is fairly high but not outrageous for a PVA panel.  I do not believe colour quality was affected in any way by the change as it was to do with input or frame lag not pixel response time (where color shortcuts are taken for lower response time)

You can see here compared to a CRT, 30ms difference in the displayed time:

The A00 revision had ~60ms input lag if I recall correctly.

Did you, or do you, own the two different revisions?
If so, did it make a noticable difference to you?

I would love to know if someone has received an A02 revision in NZ. I would ring Dell and ask them what revision is being shipped in NZ, but let's face.............

Didn't own one personally a guy on the Overclocks NZ forums returned his A00 several times because of input lag, I think he did get a A01 eventually that he was happy with. I'd link you the thread but the forums are down at the moment.
