With the 2408WFP Rev. A01, Dell is presenting a new version of the model which has been on the market for some time with the firmware revision A00. Some teething problems from the previous model have been solved through changes in the firmware.
The large number of connectors shows clearly that the 2408WFP (from here on, this is used to denote the A01 revision model) is a multimedia display. However, the model also offers an enormously extensive colour space.
Frontal view of the Dell 2408WFP.
In the course of the test, the model must thus demonstrate what it can do in the multimedia sector, but also what it can do in terms of its wide gamut.
All test results published were obtained via the digital output of an ASUS 8600 GTS. A Sony Playstation 3 was used to test the video functions.
Scope of supply
The Dell 2408WFP comes in box that is compact with regard to the size of the panel and typically simple. The base is not attached to the monitor when it arrives. Mounting the base can be done without a problem, but requires some skill and should be done in peace and, at best, in a place where there is no danger of the screen falling over.
