Good, But No More
The Dell 2405FPW performed respectably as tested by the calibrator.
Reproduction is as you would expect but at the price of too bright a display.
|Black Spot||White Spot||Contrast|
Black level is accurate but the brightness is frankly out of order for long-term use, unless it's CAD on a black background, so for the office forget this one. Conversely, contrast is very stable, supporting a wide range of adjustment.
The 2405FPW copes really well here, hats off! Despite a few extreme measurements for an IT monitor, its evenness is remarkable.
The set of intensity values are within 15% of the total range over a large majority of the visible surface. The bottom of the panel is a little less bright than the top, but nothing unacceptable. The effect on movie playback is negligible.
