Dell 1901FP

The Good Inexpensive; very adjustable; nice design; strong color quality; five USB 2.0 ports.

The Bad Text suffers from pixel fusion; grayscale shows greenish tint.

The Bottom Line Dell's 1901FP is elegantly designed, highly adjustable, and affordably priced. Only those who need superprecise image quality should look elsewhere.

Dell 1901FP

Review summary

Dell's 1901FP, a sleek, 19-inch LCD with a full range of adjustability and connectivity options, is a good deal at around $700. Users on a tighter budget should check out the 1901FP's 17-inch sibling, the 1703FP, which offers a similar set of features for about $200 less.

The 1901FP's physical design is good overall. Its range of movement is somewhat limited--it swivels smoothly 45 degrees to each side, and it tilts a mere 20 degrees backward and 5 degrees forward--but the panel's 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles make it viewable from almost any position. Hit the release button at the bottom of the neck, and the telescoping neck will add 5.1 inches of height to the display. A similar button on the back of the panel detaches the display from the neck so that you can connect the 1901FP to a &siteid=7&edid=&lop=txt&destcat=ex&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Evesa%2Eorg%2Ffdmipr%2Ehtm" target="_blank">VESA wall- or arm-mount (hardware not included). The panel pivots from Landscape to Portrait mode, making legal-size documents and Web pages easier to view. You can download pivot software from Dell's Web site (registration required), but we wish it came bundled with the display.
