In DisplayMate, which runs a variety of colour charts and test screens to help reveal any flaws that a monitor might have, the 2007WFP passed every test almost flawlessly. Its contrast levels were good with great distinction between colours on the intensity ramps, blacks were equally impressive and colours were rendered richly and accurately.
Edges were clean and sharp with no colour bleeding or blurring and our moire patterns showed no signs of image noise. There was an extremely faint rippling that we could sometimes detect on plain grey screens, but it wasn't noticeable unless we were looking for it and were sitting extremely close to the screen. There was also a very minor uniformity issue along the top and bottom of the screen, with those edges appearing slightly darker than the rest of the display, but again, this was an insignificant problem. Overall, the 2007WFP impressed us thoroughly in these tests and it's a perfect choice for regular PC users.
We also ran our DVD copy of Swordfish to check how well this model handles fast-paced material. Here it wasn't quite as impressive. There was a minor amount of ghosting evident, and colours were slightly warm. There is a multimedia preset, which helped fix these issues to some degree, but they were still present. For occasional movie-watching or gaming, the 2007WFP will be fine, but its strength clearly lies in displaying standard PC applications so users who want a screen primarily for gaming and watching movies may wish to look elsewhere.
Aside from the multimedia mode there is also a games option, along with the default PC desktop configuration. Users can also change the brightness, width, sharpness and adjust the quantity of each of the three primary colours. Picture-in-picture is also available using one of the secondary connections.
Speaking of connections, the monitor is well-stocked in this area. Many options are available, including DVI (which is HDCP compliant), D-Sub, S-Video and even Composite. Furthermore, there are four USB 2.0 ports scattered around the unit as well as a fitting for a Kensington lock, which can come in handy if the screen is to be used in an area where security is a concern.
Aesthetically, the 2007WFP is quite smooth. Unlike previous Dell monitors, which have been plain black, this model has a silver top and bottom, which looks quite good and adds a touch more class to the design. The buttons run along the front right-hand corner and are easy to operate. Meanwhile, the monitor can be swivelled horizontally and rotated vertically on the stand, but it can't be height-adjusted.
All up, Dell's 2007WFP monitor is a great choice for those after an all around PC monitor for day-to-day usage.
