I know this question has probably been asked no matter where I go I can't get a straight answer so I'm turning to you guys for some answers.

I heard that the 2407WFP is not HDCP. True or False? This seemed to be the biggest issue with this monitor from what I've heard and cannot display 1080p using the PS3 or a Bluray player. Also I heard that they are coming out with a revised version of this monitor around this time (if they havent already).

So if you guys can share your experience and even if it doesnt display 1080p on a PS3 as long as it still looks good to me. I dont care.

You can install the monitor in any Plug and Play-compatible system. The monitor automatically provides the computer system with its Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) using Display Data Channel (DDC) protocols so the system can configure itself and optimize the monitor settings. If desired, the user can select different settings, but in most cases monitor installation is automatic.
there is some more stuff but i figured this would give you adequate data, plus the seller of the a04's stated that they would handle 1080p hdtv stuff etc etc.
Right out of the box when the driver is loaded it goes to 1920x1200
personally - I cut it down to 1280x768 easier on my old eyes .
BUT still sharper than hell .... hahahaha totally amazing
