REVIEW: Dell 1907FP (s) Part 6
When rotating the display to portrait mode, it is advisable to make sure that there are no longer any devices plugged into the USB ports at the side, since they could be torn out in the process. For USB keyboards or mice, we recommend using the two USB ports situated on the rear side of the case instead.
On this picture, the cover plate has been removed, giving way to the inputs of the monitor.
The inputs of the Dell 1907FP faultlessly worked with every USB device that we tested them with, e.g. mouse, keyboard, digital camera and USB stick.
Due to the size of the black round buttons being sufficiently dimensioned, the control can be conveniently handled by finger or thumb. The control buttons bear a noticeable and in our opinion perfectly balanced pressure point. The silver button labels are very recognizable even under unfavorable ambient lighting conditions. Since the control concept gets by on five buttons only, it does not take long until operating the LCD becomes intuitive.

Some functions can be called up directly at the push of a button without having to bring up the OSD (On Screen Display) first. Using the button, one can toggle between the signal inputs D-Sub (analog), DVI-D (digital). The button brings up the OSD and, inside the OSD, is also used to enter submenus and confirm selections. The buttons and are used to both navigate through the OSD as well as adjust functions and parameters. With the button, the Dell 1907FP can be turned on/off.
If the user switches to an input source that currently carries no signal, the display will start running a self-test which shows a colored test pattern slowly wandering across the screen.

Instead of following the new OSD concept of the 2007WFP and 2407WFP, the OSD layout of the Dell 1907FP is in line with the series 5 monitors.
Pushing the according button the OSD brings up a menu bar showing the following options with detailed illustrations.
