More colours thanks to a new backlight type – this is what distinguishes the Dell 2407WFP with suffix HC from its predecessor, without a suffix. Otherwise, only the brightness has changed on the data sheet – it is 50 cd/m² lower than that of the Dell 2407WFP non-HC.
However, it gets exciting when it comes to the practice. Not only did we test the Dell 2407WFP-HC thoroughly by itself, we were also able to compare it directly with its Revision 4 predecessor, which is officially no longer available.
With the introduction of the HC model, Dell has once again increased the price heftily. Out test will show whether the extended colour space really justifies the price difference of around 80 to 150 Euro with various online retailers.
Our test system included a 3,200 Mhz Core2Duo E4300 and an XFX Geforce 8800GTS Extreme as well as 2 Gigabytes of RAM. All tests apart from the examination of the analogue image stability were carried out on the DVI input of the Dell 2407WFP-HC.
Scope of supply
Apart from the video connector cables, the scope of supply includes everything you need to use the monitor immediately. The D-Sub cable is even slotted into the monitor already. Since we wanted to use the DVI input, we replaced this cable with the DVI cable that came with the model.
