Bought a Dell SE198WFP 19”LCD monitor for my cousin.



First impressions…..it’s a very good looking piece of beauty .On performance basis too it delivers. Its lotta better than viewsonic value series or LG stuff or analog Samsungs (non BW’s) …..and its hard to believe that SE198WFP is a value offering from dell …..

Ok guys …….here it is
Details regarding purchase are:
Total payment: Rs 10,300/- inc. of tax & delivery for delhi(3yrs warranty)
Date of receiving quotation: 26 NOV
Date of sending cash: 27 nov by credit card date date of order:27 nov
Date of delivery: 6 dec
Bundle: VGA cable, DVI-D cable, stand, 19”panel, Driver cd

Monitor details : DVI-D HDCP enabled input, vga input, 19” in 16:10 ratio,1440 X 900 max & native resolution , TN panel ….more here

http://www1.ap.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/se198wfp?c=in&cs=inbsd1&l=en&s=bsd


Now coming over to monitor…build quality is excellent ,I must say anyone can’t even predict by looking at it that it’s a value offering. Monitor stand’s base is flat with a glossy finish at edges. Buttons at front are of robust quality, plus back is also with a shiny gloss…..no use of cheap plastic whatsoever…..one short word awesome…….“DELL products have a robust build quality”


Now over to performance….panel is rated at a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio but actually it’s a marketing strategy as for TN’s 800:1 or a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio doesn’t makes a difference
Colors are very well produced with a definite crisp, no ghosting whatsoever, no backlight bleeding at all. Monitor works like a charm…I’m more than satisfied with this panel considering I also have a high end panel Samsung 940BW & 2 value dell E228WFPs to compare
Overall Performance rankings are 940BW>SE198WP>E228WFP


Now over to its competitors in market ….viewsonic value monitors have nothing but crap..Currently viewsonic is using a lot of cheap TN films from Chinese manufacturers in value monitors & to be true these films are pathetic…Samsung analogs are not a good choice whatsoever, LG is also finding a hard time with defective stuff


For its performance, build quality & after sales support from dell this monitor is highly recommended by me..Don’t look further it u are looking for a value 19” widescreen


Another thing here when I ordered this monitor it was available for 10,800rs inc tax & delivery in delhi so I got a discount of rs 500 over it as I’m previous dell customer……………………………..but currently this monitor is available for Rs 9,800/- inc tax & delivery for Delhi…OMG don’t look beyond this beauty now


Cheers

Even i found this DELL SE198WFP LCD very tempting. Shall i go for it? i've also seen the Viewsonic VX 1940w, which is about to come soon, anyone knows what wil it cost? it has a 1680x1050 res inspite being a 19", and a dynamic contrast of 3000, dunno how far is it true or jus a marketing gimmick. and jus a point, i'm not an avid hardcore gamer.

n how is the Dell UltraSharpTM 1908WFP offering from dell, is it worth going for it or stick to the DELL SE198WFP?

Well, i'm eagerly waiting for ur suggestions...

Well, i came across yet another model Dell SP2008WFP, it has an Integrated webcam n mic, and its a 20". around 2k bucks more than the 19" one. Dou you think it'll be a good decision to for this one?
and it has one more senior 22" model, which has hot a HDMI port, i jus wanted to know what is this port for n does it really make a differnce in the image n video quality in every day use. n do we have to have a HDMI graphics card to connect it or DVI will do?
Clear my doubts anyone, plz....

dell SE198WFP for 9.8k is an excellent panel to start with but if u can expand ur budget then then do consider SP2008WFP currently available for 12.7k..this monitor is currently under huge discount (8k) & its a RTA overdriven panel .......22" SP2208WFP with HDMI is also a RTA overdriven panel

basically HDMI is same as DVI-D for picture quality ...HDMI is useful for connecting a monitor with a PS3 or a dvd layer

only one word stay away from viewsonic

you mean to say that the DELL SP2008WFP is for 8k? are you sure? If yes, then whee can i avail that offer from? i checked the site, it says something about Limited Time Offers "Disc Code: Rs 8025 Cash Off Offline" what does that mean? but when i Customize it for purchsing the total amounts to Rs 12,331/-. Now i am confused.
Help me out plz, if the offer is really valid, then i dont wanna lose it.
And what does an RTA Overdriven Panel mean?
Thnx again...
Aah! i've recheked it, its not for 8k, actually there's a deduction of 8k, of course humungous amount, which makes it around 12.3k incl tax. that's cool ofcourse.

yes it supports 720p over hdmi

But Dell SP2008WFP only has a DVI-D port, it hasnt got HDMI. so how can it be HD capable?
and can we connect the DVI to a HDMI monitor? or can we connect a HDMI port to a DVI monitor? what'll be the difference?

Pls give the price of 24'' too
n the specifications of both the screens....
Should 20'' screen having HDMI port n slow response time be better option than 22''I mean Getting the best In 20'' screen rather than opting for a medicore performing 22''?
What's ur call on this Vivek?

n how will u review Smsung Mist?

I m ready to pay for full HD'' if it s really worth it..
I m of the believe that Gadgets r not updated daily...So it better to invest one time rather than investing after every year....
The main thing i m looking for is Quality..
But i want to make sure th money i m paying for the LCD monitor is worth paying for it....
