REVIEW: Dell 1907FP (s) Part 9
The brightness uniformity of our review unit managed to score just about 'good'. Upon close inspection, slight deviations in brightness became noticeable. Yet, this can hardly be noticed under the lighting conditions of a standard workplace environment. It also should be pointed out that the brightness uniformity of LCDs is always subject to a certain degree of spread for standard factory models.
Overall, in terms of image quality the Dell 1907FP shows great performance; which, for a TN panel, is in fact quite astonishing. Also its color accuracy comes off very respectable. This shows that dithering has come a pretty long way in the meantime. Merely the aspect of viewing angle stability can still be seen as a major weakness of TN panels.
Dell states that it takes 8 ms for the Lite-On TN panel to perform a black-white-black pixel shift. We fired up a couple of games to get an impression of the display’s responsiveness (and therefore its gaming capability).

While the 8ms response time of the Dell 1907FP won't break any records, the display still responds fairly quick, revealing no perceivable ghosting in first person shooter such as "DOOM III".

Just as every other LCD monitor, the Dell 1907FP too shows a certain amount of motion blur. This is due to the basic principle of how LCD technology works, as they fall into the category of so called 'Hold-Type' displays. Whereas tube monitors (CRTs) are among "Impulse Type" displays; the human eye does not perceive any blur with this display type.
This difference in perception can be explained by the fact that LCDs don't refresh their picture unless there is actually a change in content, whereas CRTs constantly redraw the displayed picture, regardless of change.

Everybody perceives the responsiveness of LCD monitors differently. It is therefore impossible to try and make a universally valid statement about the Dell 1907FP definitely being fast enough for any fast-paced action game. Particular target groups, such as hardcore gamers, have shown to be very susceptible in terms of the responsiveness of displays. For this reason, we generally advise those users to pick the fastest displays currently available. Everybody else, however, will certainly be content with the swiftness of Dell 1907FP.
