it is still useful as you can still make out what is on the desktop even at that size. i am able to make it out even while still at max res and if you lower it to 1280 x 1024 it is even clearer and the same goes for lower resolutions. for general purpose it is quite clear.
well i ended up purchasing the Dell 2007FP. Dell had a great deal on last week. $399 CAD. It looks great.
Im using it on my server right now. Unfortunatly my video card does not support the rotation aspect. I tried downloading Pivot to emulate this feature but it just ends up crashing my video card (and my usb devices for some odd reason). I searched on google for hours but could not come accross any other software that performs this. I think the pivot software fails because im running win 2k3 small biz server. or it may just be my vid card. I just cant wait till i get my desktop fixed to see the full capabilities of this monitor.
I'll prolly buy a large dell lcd in the next year or so. I need more deskspace
