Initial Impression & Build Quality
Upon initial unboxing of this giant monitor when it arrived I was just blown away at the size. It literally towers over other monitors (including the 2405FPW) it's so big. I actually started wondering if I would have adequate space on my desk for my front speaker, breakout box, etc. After a big of playing around with everything on my desk it fit nice and snugly in the middle.
The build quality of this display is of the best craftsmanship available. Nothing feels flimsy or cheap, and the weight of the monitor represents its build quality well. The Dell design team did a fabulous job with the external appearance of this set, it's a beautiful addition to anyones desk.
Dell decided to go with a newly designed permanently affixed stand for this monitor, I would assume due to the weight of the panel. The stand is 100% metal w/ a rubber base to keep your display from slipping off the back of your desk. This stand seems much sturdier and well made than the snap-on style stands found on the smaller Dell counterparts. The stand is adjustable up and down, so far down in fact that you can make the bottom edge of the screen stand about 1/2" from your desk. It is also features an adjustable cant found on most monitors. The only thing that the new base misses is the ability to turn the monitor to a "portrait" style layout. Who ever uses that anyhow? ;)
To keep the looks of the monitor clean, Dell did away with the conventional button setup found on all of their other displays. This display features three "light touch" buttons in the lower right hand corner. These buttons are hard to describe; there is no physical button but when you touch the indented area it recognizes your finger is there, I love it! The three buttons control power on/off and brightness up/down. All other adjustments are made via your computer.
